Changes in weather, conditions, and just day-to-day use may make your rug less “flat” and more of a risk of being tripped over. They warp, lose their shape, and are no longer the proper size and fit they once were. Over time, rugs can also shrink and stretch out of shape if the fibers are no longer functioning the way they were originally meant to. At Megerian Rugs and Carpet Cleaners, we take pride in restoring the beauty and handiwork of your area rugs to their original glory. Often, over time, oriental rugs and other area rugs will seem to shrink or change in shape enough that they no longer fit the floor properly. We can fix these problems with comprehensive rug blocking and stretching services. Rugs will also need to be stretched following an overnight soaking as a part of that process.

FAQs About Rug Stretching Services

Rug blocking and stretching are processes used to correct distortions in a rug’s shape and flatness. Blocking involves reshaping and sizing a rug to its original dimensions, usually by wetting and pinning it to a flat surface until it dries. Stretching addresses issues where a rug may have become bunched or wrinkled, using specialized equipment to pull the rug back into shape gently. Both services help maintain the rug’s appearance and prolong its lifespan.

Rugs need to be stretched because they can become misshapen, wrinkled, or bunched over time due to regular use, changes in humidity, or improper storage. Stretching helps realign the fibers and restore the rug to its original flat condition, reducing trip hazards and improving the overall appearance of the rug.

Stretching your rug yourself is not recommended. Rug stretching requires specific tools and expertise to avoid damaging the rug’s fibers. Professional rug stretching services use the right techniques and equipment to safely restore your rug without compromising its texture or causing additional wear.

The frequency of professional stretching or blocking depends on the rug’s material, usage, and placement. Generally, it’s advisable to have rugs professionally stretched or blocked every few years or whenever you notice signs of buckling or shrinking. For rugs in high-traffic areas or those susceptible to humidity changes, more frequent service may be necessary to maintain their condition and appearance.

Rug blocking and stretching can effectively fix many types of size distortions, but the success largely depends on the extent of the distortion and the rug’s material. These techniques are highly effective for correcting minor to moderate issues, ensuring rugs lay flat and fit well within your space. However, severe distortions may require additional repairs or treatments.
