Prescott Rug Cleaning Experts

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

How do I get my rug to lie flat? At Arizona Oriental in Prescott, AZ, we've seen a lot of rugs that have been peed on for months and have gotten a lot of attention from our four-legged friends.

You don't want your rugs to endure this stiff and brittle condition. Here, you can find out why you should take any rug to a Prescott area rug cleaning specialist to fix these urine problems and get your rug to lay flat again.


Why You Need a Prescott Area Rug Cleaner

Urine has "urine salt crystals" that trap water and keep the rug's fibers damp for a long time. Not just the urine will make the rug stiff, but also dry rot and urine salt crystals. Unless your rug is already broken or torn, it is hard to tell if it has dry rot and how bad it is before you clean it.

Some other causes are overwatering plants, moisture seeping in from the ground, or anything else, like a plastic chair mat at your desk, that makes enough moisture for your rug to collect and hold on to for a long time.

Remember to close the curtains and blinds to protect your belongings when you're not at home. This helps to protect not only your rugs but also your upholstery, wood furniture, and even your wall-to-wall carpets. Rot can also be caused by dry rot, mold, mildew, and dry rot.

It can be pricey to fix rugs with dry rot depending on how bad the dry rot is. The base and face fibers no longer there must be replaced to fix the rug.
