Many of our carpet cleaning customers in Long Port, Vintner, Linwood, Somers Point and Egg Harbor have asked about Foggs Carpet Cleaning rug repair services.

We are happy to offer the following services:

  • Pet damage

Repairing the "Ends"

We can replace the fringes, bind the ends with matching cloth binding or do thread surging. These will all give your rug a new appearance and is worth it if the rug is in otherwise good condition. 


1) What is the cost of repair?

Answer:  We do not know until we see the size and type of damage. When we pick up the rug for cleaning (it should be cleaned before being repaired) we can measure it and give you an exact price. If you have an approximate idea of the length of the ends that need repair we will need to also know how thick the rug is in order to determine if the rug can be bound or surged. We will then give you an estimate of the cost. Then you can decide if you want us to do the required repairs. 

2) How long does it take to fix my rugs?

Answer:  Usually it takes between 1 to 2 weeks for regular repair after we receive your rug. We will inform you when your rug will be ready. 

If you need it back in a hurry, please let us know but there may be an extra charge.

3) How do you clean my rugs?

The answer depends on what the rug is made of. It may be wool (which more common with oriental rugs) or it may be silk (this is not so common) it may be sizzle or even nylon. No matter what kind of rug it is we start by vacuuming it with powerful vacuum cleaners. Then it is cleaned using the hottest cleaning water and solution for your particular type of rug. Then they are hung to dry. 

4) How about if I want to store my rug? 

Answer:  We can store your rugs for you at a minimal monthly charge. Maybe you are getting work done in your house and need the rug stored in a safe place. Our climate controlled warehouse is the best. 

However, if you prefer to store your own rug after we have cleaned it then we will gladly paper wrap it for you for no extra charge. 

5) Can you put Protector on my oriental rugs?

Absolutely! Protector can extend the life of any rug or carpet. There is an additional charge but it is worth the investment. 

6) I have a very large area rug, would you send your team to my house?

YES! Depending on where you live in South NJ, we are able to estimate the cost of cleaning your rug which will include pickup, cleaning, deodorizing and delivery. If you are out of our delivery area there may be a nominal fee for pick up and delivery. Contact us for a quote on this fee. Or you may want to deliver and pick up your own rug to our location. We offer a discount if you want to do this.
