Rug repairs are conducted according to the type of rug and its specific damages. If a rug has several types of damages, it will require a specially-formulated plan of action. That being said, the most common repair necessitating damages are
It’s important to note that rugs made of cotton, silk and wool will deteriorate naturally over the years. However, its condition can be preserved with regular cleanings by expert rug cleaners. The effects of your rug’s exposure to dirt, dust and animals cannot be sustainably fixed with regular vacuuming or home washes.
Unfortunately, these particles can become embedded within the rug’s fibers and remain trapped due to humidity. If your rug is in need of significant repairs, avoid cleaning it yourself. Rugs in this condition should always be taken to professional rug cleaners prior to their repairs, but if this is not possible, they should be taken directly to a rug repair professional.
You can do additional damage to your rug by cleaning it improperly with household products and the hard water that comes from your tap. It’s not worth risking permanent damage to your rug fibers- take it to the experienced professionals instead.
The simple answer to this question is yes. Unless your rug only needs minor repairs, it should always be professionally washed. At Green Rug Care, we are trained to wash damaged rugs with extra care.
In the case of rugs with large tears or decaying fibers, we have several tools that allow us to wash the rug thoroughly without causing more damage. The most commonly-used tool for this endeavor is a permanent backing, which is also used when cleaning any antique rugs.
