Can My Rug With Ragged Edges Be Cleaned? – Sedona AZ

Can My Rug With Ragged Edges Be Cleaned? – Sedona AZ

Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here to talk a bit about rugs that come in for cleaning and happen to have some form of damage.  Perhaps fringes have been torn or after years of use the side cords are beginning to unravel.  We may make a recommendation for your rug to be repaired, or at least secured, depending on the severity of the damage itself.  Securing will protect the loose, unravelling edges on your rug and allow us to clean the rug.  Sometimes rugs come into us at Arizona Oriental as an unravelling mess and any agitation is apt to cause further unravelling.  We are unable to clean a rug without a certain amount of agitation to loosen and remove soil, so it is imperative to secure prior to cleaning to avoid additional damage.

Arizona Oriental always advises our clients when we see a need to secure damage prior to our cleaning.  We provide repair estimates to properly remedy the damage as well.  Securing is a great start to care for your rug, but it is not the same as a restorative repair.  Unlike securing, restoration will help to preserve both the rug itself and the rug’s value.  Some rug owners come in with a rug that has been chewed up by a puppy or vacuum cleaner and ask what the value of their rug is.  The rug’s value is diminished considerably in its current condition, so restoration does indeed help to preserve this value.

By making repairs when damage first occurs, you are minimizing the damage.  If left unattended, the damage is bound to worsen over time, doing much more damage than originally.  This, of course, devalues the rug and, in the end, costs much more to repair.

At Arizona Oriental in Prescott AZ, we strive to take excellent care of our clients and their rugs, which is why we offer cleaning and repairs on all area rugs.  If you have any concerns regarding your rug, please call and chat with us about your needs.  We’ll work closely with you to help preserve your precious rug for many years to come.

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