Keep Your Rug Fringe in Good Shape for the Long-Term by Following These Tips

Keeping small things in mind while cleaning your area rug will help you to have a healthy rug. Unlike rugs, the fringe is fragile and prone to damage. Thus, it requires extra care and attention. Such as:

  • Avoid walking directly on the fringe
  • Don't pull your fringe
  • Vacuum with low suction
  • Avoid high traffic area

Rug Fringe Protection Against Wear & Tear

Rug Placement: Avoid placing your rug underneath heavy furniture. If you want to place it under heavy furniture, then try using a rug pad underneath the rug.

Rug Rotation: Rotate your rug promptly to ensure even wear and tear of your area rug.

Practicing these things is good but these are not the only things to ensure good health of your fringe. Consider taking professional help at least once a year.

Don't Risk Your Rug Fringe; Leave the Fringe Maintenance & Grooming to Us

Rug fringe is more than just a decoration. It helps to hold your fine textile together. Over time, however, it might become difficult to take good care of the rug fringe as it ages and is exposed to daily foot traffic in Bellingham and Mount Vernon.

When this occurs, remember that your fringe requires specialized maintenance, just like other parts of your rug, to look its best. Avoid all DIY options because they typically involve harsh chemicals that will degrade your rug. Instead, rely on the knowledge of our professional crews, as well as their repair and restoration skills, to keep your fringe looking its best for decades to come.
