Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott. Why Brittle Rug Cleaning?

Dry rot occurs when the fibers of your rug get weaker and degrade and are most typically found in the cotton base fibers. Unfortunately, rips, tears, and holes are just a step away from this disorder. Dry rot can be caused by too much moisture and too little moisture in your old curtains or furniture.

Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott. Why Brittle Rug Cleaning

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

Area rugs are very important to us, and we take proper care of them carefully. As a result, if your rug is stiff or brittle, it’s never a good sign. Unfortunately, this is like dry rot, which isn’t suitable for rugs.

Arizona Oriental has witnessed rugs frequently urinated on, which is detrimental to materials because urine is acidic and made composed of moisture-holding urine salt crystals. Salt crystals like these cause rug strands to stay wet longer than they would otherwise, causing dry rot.

To flush those awful salt crystals from your carpets, you’ll need the proper urine-neutralizing cures, the right tools, and the correct technique.

Unfortunately, we won’t determine the whole level of dry rot until your rug has been cleaned. The only way to tell is to look for a hole, but we’ll wash and handle your rug, then flush away the pee salt crystals.

Sun damage is another cause of dry rot, so keep your curtains closed when you’re not at home to protect your rug and upholstery.

Repairing rugs that have been damaged by dry rot can be expensive, depending on the amount of damage. Indeed, if the damage is broad throughout the rug region, even repair may be impossible.

Expert weavers must reweave the base and face fibers in afflicted regions, which is a time-consuming process for charging a premium.

Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, Arizona, collaborates directly with rug weavers to provide a wide range of repairs, from the most basic to the most complex, such as dry rot restoration.
