Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott Valley. What Is Brittle Rug?

Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott Valley. What Is Brittle Rug?

Dry rot occurs when the rug's fibers weaken and disintegrate, and cotton base fibers are most commonly affected. It's unfortunate, but rips, tears, and holes are just a few steps away from this disorder. In addition, you can get dry rot in your old drapes or furniture if there is too much moisture or too little moisture in them.


Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ.


Area rugs are pretty precious to us, and as such, we treat them with great respect. There is no legitimate reason to have an uncomfortably stiff or brittle rug. Rugs should not be subjected to dry rot, which is what this looks like.

In Arizona Oriental's experience, pee is acidic and consists of moisture-holding urine salt crystals harmful materials. In addition, this type of salt crystal prolongs the time that rug fibers are submerged in water, allowing dry rot to develop.

Using urine-neutralizing remedies, appropriate tools, and suitable techniques is necessary for successfully flushing salt crystals from carpets.

We can't tell the full extent of the dry rot until we've cleaned your rug. To tell, you'll have to look for a hole, but we'll shampoo, hand-treat the rug, and flush out the pee salt crystals.

Keep your drapes drawn when away from home to protect your rug and upholstery from the sun's harmful rays.

Depending on the extent of the dry rot damage, it may be costly to repair rugs. However, if the damage is extensive, even repair may be ineffective.

Base and face fibers must be replaced in damaged locations by skilled weavers who charge a premium for their services.
