Area Rug Cleaning Prescott, AZ. Things You Don’t Do To Rugs

Do you have to store your rugs at any point? We at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care understand that not everyone wants to store their rugs for an extended period. Life goes on, but there are times when you must perform this tricky operation.

Hi, I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.

Here you can learn a bit more about both, and why you’ll need the help of a Prescott area rug cleaning specialist.


Rug Storage the Right Way

You can fold your oriental rug into a bundle. Then you put it on its end in a warm area for safe storage and promptly forget about it. It won't lay flat any longer, you'll notice.

Such a rug is a tufted rug, which is made by poking tufts of wool yarn through the fabric and then gluing them in place.

Because the glue dries out, storing it in the warm storage area you used will hasten the drying process, resulting in the ripples you see.

Keep the tufted rug in a temperature-controlled environment to help it last longer. The adhesive would dry up faster if a tufted rug was stored in a heated attic or garage.


Expert Rug Repair Can Deal with Dry Rug Glue?

A tufted rug swiftly deteriorates once the glue has cured, and you'll notice the following.

  • White powder residue falls on the floor beneath the rug as it bends, making a cracking sound.
  • Among the wool tufts are lumpy, pea-size hard substances, which are the monk's cloth backing.
