Is there a way to get my area rug to lie flat? Numerous rugs have been brought into Arizona Oriental in Prescott, Arizona, after urinating on and being abused by our four-legged friends for months.
Hi there, It’s Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.
You definitely don't want your rugs to experience this condition because of how stiff and brittle it makes them. Find out why any rug with urine problems and the desire to lie flat again should be taken to a Prescott area rug cleaning expert.
Why You Need a Prescott Area Rug Cleaner
The "urine salt crystals" in urine act as a moisture trap, preventing the rug's fibers from drying out for days. The rug will become rigid due to dry rot and urine salt crystals, not just urine. Unless your rug has already broken or ripped, it is difficult to tell if it has dry rot before cleaning it.
Other causes include using a plastic chair mat at your desk, which traps moisture for long periods, as well as accidentally watering plants too much or having moisture seep through the foundation of your home.
It would help if you always remembered to draw the drapes and the blinds to protect your textiles while away from home. Rugs, upholstered furniture, wood floors, and even wall-to-wall carpets can benefit from this prevention measure. Rot can also be brought on by dry rot, mold, mildew, or other microbial invaders.
Rugs with dry rot can be expensive to restore, depending on the severity of the problem. Rug repair entails reweaving the missing foundation and face yarns.
Arizona Oriental has close relationships with rug weavers who can repair and restore the flatness of your prized rugs.
