Professional Rug Repair
Rug Repair Orange County
Recently, in the Southern California area, there has been an increased need for rug repair and restoration. Having originally operated solely as a wash facility, we noticed several of our customers were bringing their damaged rugs to us for cleaning, stating that although their rugs have experienced a lot of wear and tear, they can’t seem to part ways with them. Over the years we have found that this is the case with many area rug owners, and so, naturally, we sought out a way to help our customers preserve their meaningful timepieces. We now have a fully equipped restoration department where skilled artisans dedicate their time to repairing even the most delicate of area rugs.
Repairing and restoring your area rug gives it an extended life span and significantly decreases its chances of being damaged further. By tending to, and repairing, the worn area, not only is that specific area now protected, but it prevents the areas around it from succumbing to the wear and tear as well — thus protecting your rug for several more years to come.
While repairing an area rug can make a great difference in the appearance and life span of a rug, it is important to note that in order for it to be successful, the repair must be done correctly, and professionally. Having spent over a decade caring for rugs from around the world, here at Refined Carpet | Rugs, our artisans have the necessary knowledge, and experience, to restore even the most valuable, or antique, of area rugs.
Repair services we offer:
- Fringe repair/replacement
- Reweave holes/tears
- Color Correction (fix dye bleeding)
- Rug backing repair or replacement
- Side cord repair/addition
- Rug resizing
Repairing a rug is an element of rug restoration. With “restoration,” the objective is to bring the object — in this case, a rug — back to its original condition. Since area rugs are designed to be utilized over time — and if cared for, will increase in value — rug restoration is often quite fruitful. More often than not, age works to a rugs benefit. For example, ordinary wear and tear ages the wool fibers, and oxidation progresses the hues in them, which results in a lovely sheen. With that being said, a simple repair or two can protect your rug from deteriorating over time, while also preserving its natural aged features.
Authentic and professional rug restoration/repair requires that similar materials, if not the exact ones used to make the rug, are used when restoring and repairing it. This means that the materials must be of a similar age and sort, including similar kinds of dyes and fibers. To ensure we are properly equipped to restore rugs from any age or region of the world, we have a yarn “library” filled with plenty of yarn, ranging from all ages and hues.
While we are properly prepared to tend to any rug’s needs, it is important to note that some area rugs are not worth repairing, since the repair itself can cost more than value of the rug as a whole. So as to ensure restoring your rug is economically feasible, each rug is immediately inspected upon arrival, in order to determine if repair/restoration is advantageous.
As a company that prides itself on honesty, we vow to always provide each of our customers with an accurate rug valuation. If the repair is not worth a customer’s money, we promise to always let you know!
