First, how do you find out whether a rug needs repair? Look for these things. See for a cut or a tear in the rug. See for the edges of the Rug, and whether they start fraying or not. See whether the braided rug comes unbraided, and whether it can be re-braided or rebind. A point to be seen here is whether the edges require trimming or binding.
Next in line is knowledge regarding parts, tools and material you may need for the fixing job. You can buy these at fabric stores and sewing centers. Also, these are available at sewing centers of huge household stores. So to shortlist some finally, the tools you require for the fixing job include adhesive tape, curved upholstery needle, heavy duty thread, linen thread/monofilament, cotton binding tape, putty knife, quality fabric sensors etc.
With these available, you are ready for Rugs Repair. The steps would be many, and have duly been segregated into four or five levels.
You begin by repairing all the cuts in the Rugs of UK. Start by turning the rugs over and using a putty knife to push the fabric back through the tear. Then with your bare hands, work the edges of the tear together. Finally, seal the tear with tape. This is the best way of fixing cuts visible on mattresses.
Frayed edges ought to be sewn. That is how you fix Rugs in UK. Begin from say 1/4th of an inch from the actual point of damage and sew over the edge with an upholstery needle besides using a heavy duty thread of the same color. Continue wrapping the thread around the frayed area until the entire area is covered.
Again when you repair rugs, braided ones to be specific, the course of action changes entirely. You begin by removing damaged stitches holding the coil together. Then you unwind the rug as needed. You weed out any worn or damaged material and reattach as a continuous braid. Then you recoil that braid. You proceed by using an upholstery needle and linen thread to re-sew the coil in tight stitches. Finally, you reinforce the outer edges by attaching a strip of cotton binding tape to the perimeter via tight stitches.
There are clearly defined steps to bind Jute Rugs in UK. You begin by using heavy duty shears to trim the frayed edges. Then you cut a strip of cotton binding tape 2 inches longer than the raw edge of the rug. Evenly fold the binding, secure with cross stitches.
