Key Things to Ruin a Rug in Sedona, AZ



Hi there, it’s Ruthie again at the end of another week.

You probably want it to last for years when you buy an area rug for your home. You probably don’t want to spend a lot of money repairing the carpet if you can help it, do you?

When was the last time that you got your area rug washed professionally? When did you last run a vacuum over it? Or is there any damage like holes or rips that could potentially be repaired?


Wear and Tear on Rugs – Rug Care in Sedona

On our floors, rugs live rough lives and just ignoring them without some form of upkeep does a lot more harm than most people think! Without regular vacuuming, dry soil builds up at the base of our rugs.

In the fragile wool and silk fabrics, this dry soil behaves like sandpaper and grinds away, causing the fiber to break off and form wear patterns. These fibers will gradually wear away entirely, and you’ll be left with a threadbare carpet!


Pets Can Ruin Rugs

Animal urine needs to be promptly addressed, or it can lead to dry rot. Dry rot weakens the fibers of the rug and can lead to rips, cuts, tears, and holes in the precious rugs of your area.

To avoid significant damage, animal urine should always be treated as quickly as possible. Urine has a high acidity level, so it hurts the fibers a lot. 

It can cause dry rot and destabilize colors and result in heavy bleeding and discoloration of the color that may not be correctable.


Professional Rug Care and Repair in Sedona

Bear in mind that it will just cause the damages to worsen over time by ignoring repair needs! Perhaps the fringe has been trapped in the vacuum, and the rug has begun to unravel.

Or maybe your dog thought that it would be better to use your rug as a chewing toy and he chews a hole right through the rug.

Whatever caused the damage, getting it fixed as soon as possible to avoid more damage is Very important!

The longer you wait to fix your rug damage, the more unraveling will happen - this means that it will take more extensive repairs to protect or restore your rug.
