Important Things to Avoid With This Kind of Area Rug! – Sedona AZ
Hi folks, Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and I see a lot of dirty rugs. I also see more than my fair share of rugs that have been damaged from improper storage.
This little rug with an Oriental design had been bunched up, likely stuck in the corner of a hot storage room and forgotten about. It wouldn’t lay flat when it came into us. This rug was also a tufted rug, made with tufts of wool yarn that are poked through a piece of fabric and then later glued into place. This glue dries out, so it’s important to not expedite this drying out. Keeping a tufted rug in a temperature-controlled environment will help to preserve a tufted rug. By storing it in a hot attic or garage, the glue will be dried out far quicker. Once this glue is dried out, the rug quickly deteriorates and you will notice things like:
- A crunchy / cracking sound when you bend the rug.
- A fine, white powder on the floor beneath the rug.
- Lumpy, pea-sized hard substances between the wool tufts & monks cloth backing.
