Are Hand Tufted Rugs Durable? Prescott



Hand-tufted rugs need an area rug cleaner as they come in various shapes and sizes. Even how individuals make them makes a huge difference.

Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ, and I want to end the week talking about these rugs.

There will be delicate tufted rugs that can last for ages and rugs designed to look like hand-knotted rugs.

Pushing tufts of wool fibers through a cloth base and then applying a layer of glue to hold all of these loose tufts in place is how most mimicking rugs are made.

A piece of monk’s cloth is then glued to the back to finish the rug.  This style of manufactured rug is called a tufted rug. Here you can learn why you’ll probably need a professional area rug cleaner in Prescott during your rug’s life.


Are Hand Tufted Rugs Durable?

Tufted rugs can give you the look of a delicate hand-knotted area rug at a more affordable price. They are very durable, yet some things can happen, leading you to need an area rug cleaning professional such as Arizona Oriental.

The glue dries and begins to break down in about ten years or so, and as this happens, you can start to spot white silt on the floor under your rug & a lumpiness to the rug. You may consider repairing your rug before you replace it.

Here’s what Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care can do for your rug to bring it back to full health.

  1. Remove the old backing
  2. Scrape away the old and dried up glue
  3. Apply a fresh coat of glue and attach a new piece of monk’s cloth

We will also clean it as we clean all rugs and then run it through our detailed final inspections to ensure no area will cause issues.
