Prescott Valley Rug Cleaner. White Dust and Tufted Rugs

A rug was recently sent to our store by a customer. When she lifted the tufted rug, she discovered a lot of fine white powder underneath.  



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

This rug sat on her floor at the same location under her coffee table for over ten years. Our client changed her wood floors in her living room, and before placing her rug back in place again, she wanted us to clean it, hoping it would stop the powdering issue.  

Here, you can find out why you need a Prescott Valley Oriental Rug Cleaner to deal with your issues.  


Prescott Valley Oriental Rug Cleaner Explains Tufted Rugs  

A tufted rug is the type of rug that my client has. Tufted rugs are made by weaving loose strands through a cloth foundation. 

A coat of latex glue is applied to keep the loose tufts in place, then a piece of monk's cloth is affixed to the back to hide the glue and give the rug a finished appearance. 


Many people don't realize that, unlike hand-knotted area rugs, tufted rugs aren't made to survive for decades. 


Latex rugs have a fundamental flaw - The latex glue breaks down and becomes powdery and globs together after about 10 years, and the powder eventually makes its way out of the carpet and onto your floor. That's what the customer found under her rug—latex meant to break down the tufts of her rug. 


Prescott Vallet Rug Cleaner & Rug Restoration  

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 find the precise measurements, colors, and design of your room. 


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