Are Used Area Rugs Worth It? Prescott, AZ Rug Cleaner

Our expert rug cleaners can help and advise on rug care.


What to Look For In Area Rugs

Smells: Area rugs frequently come from homes where the previous owners were smokers, and the rug now has cigarette smells that require effective deodorizing treatments to remove. Pee odors may also be an issue, necessitating the treatment of your rug to remove the urine before placing it in your home.

Bugs: When the rug has been stored in a garage and is left unprotected under the bed. The rug has a moth infestation that must be treated thoroughly before it can be washed. Of course, a rug may attract other creepy crawlies that you do not want to bring into your house.

Broken Down Latex: Many tufted rugs have a ten-year lifespan before the latex breaks down. It may contribute to a powdering effect, in which latex falls out of the rug and leaves imprints on your floor. There could be a pungent latex/gum stench coming from the carpeting that you overlook right away. To put it another way, the tufted rug’s back can fall out and must be replaced as well.
