What to Do with Damaged Fringes on Your Area Rugs – Prescott Valley AZ

What to Do with Damaged Fringes on Your Area Rugs – Prescott Valley AZ

Whether you love or hate them, fringe is an important and essential part of your area rug.  Some people think they add to the beauty of their rug, while others think they’re a total nuisance.  Fringes seem to attract more soil than the rest of the rug and they also tend to get damaged more easily too.

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, we’ve seen more than our fair share of damaged fringes.  Vacuums seem to be one of the most frequent culprits of this damage since they seem to gobble up fringes like nothing else.  We always remind our clients to take care when vacuuming their rugs and avoid the fringes altogether.  Other causes of damage include puppies who like to chew on the fringe as well as high foot traffic.

NEVER CUT THE FRINGES OFF!  Fringe is an essential part of your area rugs structure and doing so compromises the entire rug.  Fringe is an extension of the warp threads that run the length of your rug and is part of the foundation of the rug.  Once the weaving has been completed, the weaver finishes the ends by knotting them in various designs and your fringe is born.

If you have an area rug that has damaged fringes, bring it into us at Arizona Oriental!  Our repair shop offers a variety of options for fringe repair – whether you want the fringe gone, replaced, or repaired.  Once we inspect your rug and its fringes, we can evaluate the needs and make recommendations for what repairs are needed.  Of course, we also offer other repairs for all of your rug’s needs and our repair estimates are always free.
