Let us help you recover your rugs from bad weather this season.
Weather can cause many problems. Behnam Rugs is there to restore and repair your fine rugs. We have helped many customers in the past by restoring their rugs after a water leak through their roof, or a broken skylight let in hail and rain /debris, and cracked windows put glass, dirt and sheet rock in and on their rugs.
Due to the high absorbency of rugs, water rising slowly and leaking into rugs over time water damage might not be noticed as fast as other weather related damages. Water being absorbed into your fine rugs could go on for days without a sound of running water letting the homeowners know there is a problem.
If sitting water is not removed fast it will cause mildew, color bleeding, rot and even the rugs foundation to be damaged. We would like to be the ones to remove your wet rugs safely.
Let Behnam Rugs pick up all your weather damaged, water damaged rugs. Then we will correctly wash and restore any color bleeding, damaged areas by washing, reweaving and patching affected areas as needed.
Yes, all rugs need padding. When you walk on your rug, you do not want to move the foundation of the rug. Installing a pad underneath your rug helps the rug not to move, and it helps preserve the quality of the knots in your rug, too.
When a rug is installed without a pad, its shape will distort over time. Your rug will lose its shape, be it rectangular or round, simply from being shifted and moved frequently. Padding will prevent this, and it will help to extend the life of your rug.
When you walk on a rug with a pad installed, it feels softer and more comfortable under your feet. You also won’t have to worry about your rug slipping underneath you and causing an accident, and yes, this CAN happen on carpeted floors, too. Because it can absorb some impact, padding can increase the life of your rug by as much as 40%. The most absorbent type of padding is felt. For further questions please call us at (972)733-0400.
What Kind of Padding Do I Need?
Rug pad materials perform differently based on the material of the rug. Ask us to help you pick the right pad material for your rug. We will also cut the pad to the shape of your rug.
For many years, hair and jute based pads were the only varieties available. Felt pads are newer, and we recommend this material for most types of rugs. Felt is made of recycled, synthetic materials. Moths will not eat these fibers, and the synthetic fibers of felt are longer lasting than the hair and jute fibers. The firmness and stability of synthetic felt also give it the advantage of being able to eliminate any ripples and bumps that can cause uneven wear when a rug lies on the floor without a pad. To be truly effective, a half inch thick pad is needed.
Unfortunately, felt rugs can still slip underneath smaller rugs, even if the pad is dense. For smaller rugs, we recommend purchasing rubber padding. Be careful not to mix rubber pads with sponge or foam pads. We do not recommend sponge or foam padding, as they are too soft and can bottom out- stressing the foundation of Oriental rugs. This is especially applicable to thin, finely woven rugs, flat weaves, or antique rugs. Sponge and foam pads can disintegrate and even stick to wood floors.
One of the best types of rug pad on the market is a fourth-inch thick synthetic felt bonded to a thin, solid rubber backing. This type of pad can serve two purpose. First, it is excellent at anchoring the rug to your floor, preventing slipping. Second, its felt layer helps to extend the life of your rug. As previously mentioned, a rug without a pad can slide around and cause serious falls and injuries. This type of padding is recommended for all scatter rugs and area rugs that do not have a thick foundation, such as antique rugs, needlepoint, Aubusson tapestries, and flat weaves. Another benefit of this type of pad is that it can also be used on thick rugs. It is thinner than synthetic felt and will not add on to the thickness of your rug. You can even place this padding on top of carpet. It eliminates rippling, buckling, and adjusting, even on wall to wall carpeted areas.
