Justify rejuvenating an old favorite

Your area rugs face harsher wear than your carpets because of exposed edges and the moving, rolling or folding of them. A simple tear can lead to major damage. But rug repairs done by a professional will help you reverse or minimize damage. Repairs can also help prevent unraveling fringe or loosening of side cording, while bringing the luster back. Despite its cost, any rug you love is worthy of repair!

After more than 70 years in business, we have seen and successfully made rug repairs of all sorts. No rug repair is too small for us, and the sooner you have it fixed, the less damage you risk. Woodard can carefully repair most damage to rugs of all fabrics using one or many of these techniques:

  • Hand repair of end finishes
  • Hand repair on side cording
  • Fringe repairs
  • Rug serging and binding
  • Rug patching and reweaving
  • Rug backing repairs

Will you describe your rug repair techniques?

For fringe repairs, we will either repair or replace damaged fringe.

During even and twine repairs, we expose the warp foundation cords that make up a hand knotted rug’s fringe when finished, and we tie consecutive knots on the warp cords all along the end, preventing the ends from unraveling for many years. This is an authentic repair with a finished look.

In rug serging and binding repairs, we will use specialized industrial machines that are capable of recreating the serged and bound factory edges commonly found on area rugs. Often, this involves cutting these pieces to size and applying serging or binding, and/or removing existing worn out finishes and replacing them with new.

Through rug patching and reweaving, we can typically repair all types of rugs within a quick turnaround time. Your rug repair expert will be more specific after inspecting your rug.

 We will complete rug backing repairs by either mending or replacing the rug backing.
