Protect Your Rugs

Like cars, carpets need regular maintenance due to wear and tear. The sides and ends are the first line of your rug’s defense in protecting them from unravelling. Have your rugs maintained every five to ten years to keep it looking great and lasting for generations.

Zangera

Unravelling ends are usually caused by normal foot traffic over time. We recommend the “Zangera” stitch for thin rugs which not only looks great, but completely secures the rug from any further unravelling.

New Fringe

Damaged fringes can be caused by traffic and/or vacuum cleaners. New fringes replaces the damaged fringes and looks better on thicker rugs and better matches their character. New fringes also completely protect and secure ends from unraveling.

Does Repair Affect a Carpet’s Value?

A common question is whether or not repairing rugs affect their value. A quality repair, using high quality vegetable dyed wool and proper technique, will always add to the value of a rug whether it is new or a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. However, when a rug is repaired poorly, using the wrong wool or technique, or is repaired in a way which goes against its original character, rugs will lose value as a result. At Koko Boodakian & Sons you can be assured that your rugs always receive the highest quality repairs.
