Prescott Rug Cleaners. How To Make Rugs Lay Flat?

Is there a way to get my area rug to lie flat? Many rugs have been brought into Arizona Oriental in Prescott, Arizona, after being urinated on by dogs and other pets for an extended period.

Prescott Rug Cleaners. How To Make Rugs Lay Flat?

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

You don’t want your rugs to experience becoming stiff and brittle. Find out why you should take your rug to a professional rug cleaner in Prescott to fix the urine problems and get it back to its flat, usable state.


Reasons to Hire an Area Rug Cleaner in Prescott Valley

Because the “urine salt crystals” in the fibers of rugs can be kept damp for much longer than usual, the rug will become rigid due to dry rot and urine salt crystals, not just the urine. Therefore, unless your rug has already broken or ripped, it is difficult to tell if it has dry rot and how bad it is before cleaning it.

Other causes include using a plastic chair mat at your desk, which traps moisture for long periods, over-watering plants, and having moisture seep through the ground’s foundations.

Ensure your textiles are protected by closing the curtains and blinds when you leave your home. This is useful for safeguarding your rugs, upholstery, wood furniture, and even wall-to-wall carpeting. Rot can also be brought on by dry rot, mold, mildew, or any of these.

Depending on how bad the rot is, rugs with dry rot can be very expensive to restore. However, the rug can be fixed by replacing the missing base and face fibers.

Arizona Oriental collaborates closely with rug weavers to perform rug repairs and restore the flatness of your cherished rugs.
