Oriental Area Rug Repair
The most common rug repair requests have to do with rug edges and ends, the ends being the kilim and fringe and the edges being the serging, binding and weft return. These are the weakest and most vulnerable areas of the rug. The biggest enemy yet paradoxically the best friend of your rug, is the vacuum cleaner, or should I say, vacuum machine operators.
Upright vacuum cleaners with adjustable beater bars are the offender, while they are the best vacuum machine to use it seems the operator doesn't fully understand that pile height adjustment is critical. Set is higher, rather that lower. Less aggression at the interface between the beater bar brush and the carpet fiber is better and it will still vacuum without damaging.
"AVOID THE FRINGES" - but if your machine manages to ensnare the fringe to the point of damage, then YES, we can repair, replace or remove altogether the fringe.
***Karastan rugs are notorious for fringe pulling away from the rug weave structure. Augusta RugWorks can repair this and has a unique remedy to prevent this from ever pulling away again.
Old hand-knotted rugs may require a traditional method of end and edge erosion. A method known as overcasting can be performed thus preventing erosion and/or stopping further erosion of the weave structure.
Rips, tears and holes can be rewoven, re-stitched, re-dyed, etc.

RESIZING YOUR RUG:
In many instances your rug may not fit the size and shape of another room or home that you hoped to use the rug for.
Visit our "Size-Your-Rug Room" where you will be able to see your room with your furnishings, drop a rug shape in and resize it to find the perfect fit for your room. Also available for you to look at within our site, is an actual "Area Rug Resizing" to help you visualize what you can expect when having an area rug resized.
