Can Rugs Be Repaired? If you go to a specialist, most rug damage can be fixed. Even if the fix is cost-effective, it may not look exactly like the original.
Hi, it’s Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ, once again!
A customer recently brought a rug into our shop. When she lifted the rug, she discovered a lot of fine white powder underneath.
For over ten years, this rug sat under her coffee table in the same spot in her house. Our client had her living room wood floors replaced, and she requested we clean her rug before reinstalling it, hoping to resolve the powdering problem.
Find out why you need a Prescott Oriental Rug Cleaner to help you with your problems.
Oriental Rug Cleaner Explains Rug Repair Problems
A tufted rug is a rug that my client has. Tufted rugs are made by weaving loose yarns into a fabric base.
A coat of latex glue applies to hold the loose tufts in place, then a piece of monk’s cloth is tied to the back to hide the glue and give the rug a finished appearance.
Many people don’t realize that, unlike hand-knotted area rugs, tufted rugs aren’t intended to last for decades.
Latex rugs have a fundamental flaw - The latex glue breaks down and becomes powdery and globs together after about ten years, and the powder eventually makes its way out of the carpet and onto your floor. That’s what the customer found under her rug, and it was the latex breaking down beneath her rug.
Prescott Oriental Rug Cleaner Does Restoration
What are our options? If a tufted area rug shows these signs of wear, the owner has two options: repair it or replace it.
It’s challenging to find a suitable replacement, particularly if you adore the rug. It isn’t easy to match the actual measurements, colors, and pattern of your space.
Here, restoring your rug might be a safer option since you will enjoy it for several more years.
Our experts will cut the rug’s backing and chip away at the crusty, dried-up adhesive before cleansing it. The back of the rug is then given a fresh coat of latex glue and a new piece of material.
