How Can I Make My Area Rug Lay Flat? Prescott Valley

How Can I Make My Area Rug Lay Flat?



Hi there, It’s Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.

At Arizona Oriental in Prescott, AZ, we’ve seen many rugs come into our facility that has been urinated on for months and have gotten a lot of attention from our four-legged friends.

You’ll find this stiff and brittle condition is one you don’t want your rugs to face. Here you can find out why you should take any rug to a Prescott Valley area rug cleaning specialist to sort out these urine issues and help your rug lay flat again.



Why You Need a Prescott Valley Area Rug Cleaner

Urine contains “urine salt crystals,” which trap moisture and keep rug fibers damp for long periods. Dry rot and urine salt crystals, not just the urine, will stiffen the rug. Before cleaning your rug, it is difficult to ascertain the existence and degree of dry rot unless the rug has already broken or ripped.

Overwatering plants, moisture seeping in from ground foundations, or something else that produces enough moisture for your rug to accumulate and hold onto for a prolonged period, such as a plastic chair mat at your desk, are some of the other triggers.

When you’re not at home, remember to close the curtains and blinds to cover your textiles. This helps to protect not just your rugs but also your upholstery, wood furniture, and even your wall-to-wall carpets. Dry rot, mold, mildew, and dry rot are some of the other causes of rot.

Depending on the extent of the dry rot, restoration for rugs with dry rot can be costly. To repair the rug, the missing base and face fibers must be replaced.

Arizona Oriental works closely with rug weavers to carry out rug repairs and make your precious rugs lay flat again.
