Protecting Antique Rugs
Did you know that the typical antique rug should be taken in for maintenance every five years? Very few people do, and this could lead to accelerated wear and tear problems. There are only a few options when it comes to dealing with an aging, antique rug. If planning on keeping the rug, move it to a low traffic area, preserve it until it completely wears out, or have it professionally restored. Our antique rug repair professionals help homeowners extend the life of their antique rugs in Brooklyn NYC.
What is antique rug repair?
Antique rug repairs extend the life of the area rug by correcting the most common problems occurring with aging rugs. Rugs may lose their shape and may have to be re-stretched in order to achieve a better fit for the rug. Fiber loss problems can be corrected with the right antique rug repair techniques. The fibers can be replaced and repiled to restore the plushness or address color fading that occurs with aging rugs. Our services in Brooklyn NYC enhance the color and texture that may have faded as the antique rugs aged.
Why must it be done professionally in Brooklyn NYC?
Most people are surprised about what all can be done to restore the appearance of an aging rug. For example, if the sides of the rugs begin to show signs of unraveling, then the sides can be wrapped with wool to protect the rug from falling apart.This is called binding repair. If the fringes are too far gone, the fringes can be removed and subsequently replaced by new fringe. An area of the rug that may have been affected by a problem like dry rot may be corrected with a partial repair method, in which an entire section is removed and rewoven. Our repair specialists in Brooklyn NYC can address every problem your aging area rug may have with great experience and professionalism.
