Tip of the Day: The Do’s and Don’ts of Area Rug Fringe Repair - Sedona AZ
Love them or hate them, an area rug’s fringe is an important and essential part of the rug. For some, they only add to the beauty of the rug. For others, they’re a nuisance! Not only do they seem to attract more soil than the rest of the rug, but they also tend to get damaged as well.
Here at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, we see many rugs that come into us with damaged fringe. One of the most frequent causes of this damage is vacuums. We always remind our clients to take caution when vacuuming their area rugs and avoid the fringes altogether when vacuuming. However, we’ve also seen damaged fringe from puppies that like to chew on the fringe and from a high amount of foot traffic as well.
Also keep in mind that fringes are an essential part of your area rug’s structure. NEVER CUT THE FRINGES OFF. The fringe is the extension of warp threads that run the length of the rug. As soon as the weaving is completed, the weaver will finish the ends by knotting them in a variety of designs. Fringe is part of the foundation of an area rug, so cutting it off without a second thought compromises the entire rug!
Arizona Oriental’s repair shop offers multiple options for fringe repair. Whether you want the fringe gone or you want to repair the fringe so that it stops unravelling, we have a variety of options. After inspecting your rug’s fringe, we can evaluate the needs and make recommendation(s) for what repairs are needed. We offer repairs for other rug needs as well – not just fringes! Repair estimates are always free and we’re usually able to offer more than just one option!
