Hand-tufted rugs are a popular choice for many homeowners, as they offer the look of a delicate hand-knotted rug at a more affordable price. However, many wonder if these rugs are durable and of good quality.
Hi there, It’s Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.
In this blog post, we’ll explore the durability of hand-tufted rugs and what you can do to keep them looking their best.
Are Hand Tufted Rugs Durable?
Hand-tufted rugs are made by pushing wool fibers through a cloth base and then applying a layer of glue to hold all these loose tufts in place.
While these rugs can be durable, the glue used to hold them together can break down after about ten years. As the glue breaks down, you may notice white silt on the floor under your rug or a lumpiness to the rug.
If this happens, it’s essential to have your rug repaired by a professional area rug cleaner. Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care can remove the old backing, scrape away the old and dried-up glue, apply a fresh coat of glue and attach a new piece of monk’s cloth.
We’ll also clean your rug and run it through our detailed final inspections to ensure no area will cause issues.
Are Hand-Tufted Rugs Good Quality?
Hand-tufted rugs can be a good quality option for many homeowners, as they offer the look of a delicate hand-knotted rug at a more affordable price. However, it’s essential to remember that the glue used to hold these rugs together can break down over time.
