Causes of Rug Damage
Damage to Oriental and area rugs can occur in a number of different ways:
- Curled-up edges and corners are usually the result of unrelieved tension on the entire rug. These issues require solid expertise to prevent recurrences and to ensure that the problem is resolved without further damage to your rug.
- Moth larvae can eat holes in rug fibers, leaving bald spots that must be repaired to maintain optimal appearance.
- Dye bleed, also known as color run, usually occurs at or near the time of manufacture and may be difficult to remediate after that period.
- Wear across the middle of the rug usually requires sourcing of similar threads or yarns and expert reweaving of the damaged portions of the rug.
- Many rugs become worn or damaged along fold lines. This usually requires mending not only the knots and pile of the rug but also the backing fabrics to which these components are attached.
In some cases, the fringe or edges of the rug may be frayed or damaged. The team at Infinity Rug Care can provide you with the most effective solutions for these problems and many others.
