Rug Repairs

Do you offer rug repairs along with rug cleaning? You should it is a great add-on and helps give you more distinction from everyone else. At Luv-A-Rug, we offer everything from hand repairs to machine repairs. The pictures I am including are both hand repairs, replacing fringes and reattaching the side wrap. We prefer to offer hand repairs for good hand knotted rugs such as Persian area rugs. For synthetics and other wool area rugs we offer binding and surging. We can also add machine fringes to an area rug, see our website for samples Our most popular repair is the removal of worn out fringes and putting on a surged edge. If you just had new carpet installed we can make area rugs out of the left over scrapes. That is a great way of protecting the carpet in high traffic areas, such as in front of the sofa or favorite chair or entrance way.
I love mentioning to our clients that we can remove the worn out/dingy fringe and putting a clean edge on. Most people are tired of having to look at the dingy fringes and having the vacuum suck them up and when they hear that we can do something about that, they opt for it. This past week I would guess that we have about 20 rugs to get either binding or surging done.
If you have a braided area rug we can fix the seam tears. Not all is lost when Fido chews the corners away. Bring your area rug in to Luv-A-Rug and we can give you all of our repair options. Thanks for reading, RugloverMary
