When damage occurs, it is advisable to repair the rug immediately because waiting will only cause the problem to worsen.
Signs Your Rug Needs Repair
It is a good idea to regularly inspect your carpet for signs of damage. Look for signs of damage along the edges and along the fringe. You should also flip the rug over and look at the serged side. You will want to look for loose threads, visible holes, stains, and other forms of damage.

Repairing Oriental Rugs
Clean Choice can utilize a variety of techniques to repair your oriental rug. We do our utmost to repair the fringe, serge, edge, and other elements so that they match as closely as possible to the original stitching, colors, and materials. Our goal with every Oriental rug repair is to complete the repair so that it preserves the integrity and value of the rug to the highest degree possible.
Using “Old” Materials to Create a Complete Rug
Many older Oriental rugs develop holes caused by foot traffic that treads upon the same threads. When holes appear, this requires a careful inspection to determine the best way to fill the gap. This can be difficult on older rugs as time, grime, and oxidation can discolor the yarn. As a result, using new yarn may result in a less than perfect match for the older threads. In many cases, the repair will be visible at a distance. Whenever possible, we utilize older rugs to repair rugs of similar age and color. This helps alleviate the color and aging differences between the yarn which minimizes the visibility of the repair.

When Oriental Rugs are Irreparable
While Oriental rugs are tough and resilient, they can suffer damage that simply can’t be cost-effectively repaired. Carpets with large tears, holes, or significant stains or burn marks are often irreparable.
However, even an irreparable Oriental rug may still have value. They can be cut into new, smaller rugs. They can be transformed into tapestry pieces. They can be sold as inventory to be used for the repair of other Oriental rugs.
