BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS: What Can Be Done About a Hole That My Dog Chewed Into My Area Rug?


BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS: What Can Be Done About a Hole That My Dog Chewed Into My Area Rug?

Hi folks, it’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ once again and I wanted to take a moment to share these before & after photos of a beautiful Mexican Zapotec area rug that was brought into our shop for repairs.  The rug owner had a bored puppy that was left alone for too long and decided to start licking a spot in the center of the rug - and wound up licking a hole clean through!

We here at Arizona Oriental are dedicated to providing not only an excellent rug cleaning service but also extensive repair options for clients who’s beloved rugs have met unfortunate circumstances like this one.  We have a network of specially trained and experienced artisans skilled in the art of repairing and restoring valuable Navajo and Oriental area rugs.

Our repair shop was able to use closely-matched colored wool to re-weave the section of the rug that the dog licked away.  This was an extensive and expensive repair, but our client really loved this rug and thought it was well worth the investment.  And I agree!

Give Arizona Oriental a call if you have any area rug repair needs!  From dog-chewed holes to a small section of the sidecord being detached, we can repair it all and we are more than happy to provide these repairs for you!  Keep in mind that the longer you leave repairs unattended, the more extensive and expensive the repair will become over time as the damage gets worse!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
