Area rugs wear down with time and use. Our footsteps alone can cause damage, but pets, swinging doors, vacuum cleaners, and kids help
speed up the wear-and-tear process.
It’s a good idea to have any repairs done while the necessary repair is small. This will keep costs down and keep the rug from deteriorating beyond repair. We’ll inspect your rug for damage and supply you with a repair quote after the cleaning has been completed.
Some of the things we look for during our repair inspection:
How we’re different:
We will never try and talk you into a repair that isn’t worth doing. If we think your rug is replaceable for less than a repair might cost to do, we’ll share our opinion with you. If your rug has great sentimental value to you, please let us know so that we can work with you to find a cost-effective solution, even if the resale monetary value isn’t there.
We are upfront with our pricing, often providing a couple of different repair options to you. Ultimately, YOU are the one to decide how we should proceed.
Restorative Repairs are invisible to the naked eye, and may even add some resale value. This type of repair is the costliest, often unnecessary, and best reserved for museum quality Oriental rugs.
General Repairs may be somewhat visible to the naked eye, holding any potential resale value where it is. This type of repair is the most common and usually well worth doing, especially if the rug is hand knotted or of heirloom quality.
Triage Repairs are usually visible to the naked eye, but will help keep your rug from needing replacement. With this type of repair, we’re just trying to maintain use of a sentimental piece, or a favorite piece with little to no actual resale value.
If your area rug is in need of some extra TLC, give us a call. We’re here to help!
