What is the rug blocking and stretching process?
We use a quality rug blocking and stretching, the main steps of which are given below.
1) The first step is to thoroughly brush the rug pile. We do this with our hand so that better results can be obtained. Until the pile is smooth and flat, we keep brushing it.
2) Now we roll our rug from the edge where the pile is smooth. This has to be done tightly as possible so that the rug is straightened out.
3) We then unroll the rug and straighten it out. Once more, we keep smoothing the rug pile, and press it hard against a surface.

While doing this, we ascertain to move along the rug pile. Moving against it will damage your rug. In this manner, we iron the rug until all the edges are flattened down.

If you want us to, we can back up your rug with rubber strips. This will prevent the edges from rolling, and there will be no injury risks.
