Prescott Area Rug Cleaner Explains Tufted Rug Repair


Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ, at the start of another week.

I think it’s time to run over one issue many rug owner’s faces, which is what not to do with their rugs.

You often find area rugs bunched up and most often stuck in the corner of a warm storage area, and, in most instances, they are forgotten about.

Once this happens, they often get in touch with their local area rug cleaning professional because it won’t lay flat.

You often find this happens with tufted rugs that have yarns poked through a piece of fabric, and at this stage, they will be glued in position.

Since glue can do many things, it can quickly ruin a rug, especially when it’s in these dry areas and the glue starts to dry and crack.

When you want to preserve a tufted rug, you need to keep it in temperature-controlled environments. In many cases, climate-controlled storage facilities offer a better solution than at home. Storing your tufted rug in a hot attic or garage expedites glue drying out.


Prescott Rug Cleaning Professional Explains Rug Deterioration

Once your glue dries out, tufted rugs quickly deteriorate, and you’ll spot the following.

  • Crunchy or cracking as you bend the rug
  • White powder remains on the floor underneath your rug
  • You find pea size hard substances between the wool tufts and the monk’s cloth backing fabric


All these are symptoms glue has dried.

Luckily, you will be happy to know the staff at Arizona Oriental have the skills and expertise to fix any issues with your tufted rug for the backing and the tufts. A quick breakdown of what we do is give your rug a thorough inspection before washing. We then replace the old glue with fresh glue and add new backing.

Many customers are unaware that we can as quickly change the fringes of your area rug.
