Prescott Valley Oriental Rug Cleaner Deals with Rug Issues

A customer recently brought a rug into our business and asked for some urgent help. When she lifted the rug, she was concerned to see an extensive amount of fine white powder beneath it.


Hi, it’s Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ, once again! 

This rug had been in the same spot under her coffee table on her floor for a decade in her current home. Our client had changed the wood floors in her living room, and she wanted us to clean her rug before putting it back in place hoping this would resolve the powdering issue.

You can learn more about why you require the services of a Prescott Valley Oriental Rug Cleaner to resolve your problems here.


Tufted Rugs Explained by Prescott Valley Oriental Rug Cleaner

The rug style my client has chosen is known as a tufted rug. Creating tufted rugs involves guiding loose yarns through a cloth base.

A coat of latex glue is applied to hold these loose tufts in place, followed by the attachment of a piece of monk's cloth to the back of the rug to conceal all the glue, giving the rug a professional appearance when completed.

However, many people are unaware that, unlike hand-knotted area rugs, tufted rugs are not intended to last for several decades.

Latex on Rugs Doesn’t Last a Lifetime

Latex rugs have a fundamental weakness - they are made of rubber. When the latex glue breaks down and becomes powdery and globular, the powder works for working its way out of the carpet and onto your floor over a period of around 10 years. What the consumer discovered under her rug was latex intended to break down her rug tufts, which were not intended to happen.


Oriental Rug Cleaner in Chino Carries Out Rug Restoration

What are our options? If a tufted area rug shows these signs of wear, the owner has two options: replace it or restore it.

It's tough to find a suitable replacement, especially if you adore the rug. It isn't easy to match the precise proportions, colors, and patterns of your room.

Here, restoring your rug may be a preferable option, as you will enjoy it for many more years. Cut the rug's covering and chip away at the old, dried-up adhesive before properly cleaning it. The back of the rug is then given a fresh application of latex glue and a new piece of material.
