Quick Repair Can Minimize Oriental Rug Damage


A well-crafted Oriental rug is made to last. The world is graced with exceptional Oriental rugs that have stood the test of time and continue to beautify their surroundings well over a century after artisans tied the final knots. But ancient rug makers did not envision the chemicals, pollutants and abusive wear to which Oriental rugs may now be commonly exposed. Even the strongest natural fibers and most expert craftsmanship are no match for some of the modern perils that can damage Oriental rugs in New York City, Long Island, Connecticut and New Jersey.

  • Water Damage RugsWater damage, most frequently caused by poor rug-cleaning methods, flooding or leaking potted plants, can rot the cotton fibers that serve as the rug’s foundation. To avoid damage, do not place potted plants directly on rugs; place them on rolling stands and check pots for leaks. Avoid placing Oriental rugs directly on cement floors where moisture accumulation can cause damage.
  • Insect damage, which is primarily caused by feeding moth and carpet beetle larvae, can be repaired by an expert reweaver. To prevent damage, vacuum the surface of the rug weekly and the reverse at least twice a year.
  • Chemical damage is most often caused by poor rug cleaning. Some rug cleaning companies bleach rug fringe which weakens the fibers. Expert rug renovators can refringe damaged rugs.

Prompt Oriental rug cleaning NYC by a skilled professional rug cleaning company can prevent permanent damage to your cherished Oriental rug. When shopping for Oriental rug cleaning services, choose one that also offers expert rug repair NYC by master craftspeople. When damage occurs, prompt professional cleaning and restoration of your Oriental rug will protect your investment and ensure that you and your family will be able to enjoy your rug for generations to come.
