Prescott Valley Rug Cleaner. Why Moroccan Rugs Need Care

Morocco has become a popular tourist destination, and the region’s tribal simplicity and geometric motifs are equally popular in residences.

Because of the increased desire for this “look,” some low-cost production facilities have used shortcuts to get goods to market faster and cheaper.

Expert Prescott Valley Rug Cleaner

Hi Yall, it’s Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in gorgeous Prescott, AZ. 

Though some excellent, extremely decorative textiles are being woven in Morocco today, the bad ones are causing tragedies and tarnishing the region’s weaving traditions.

Here are several places where shortcuts are taken and how to recognize the signs of inadequate production. Expert Prescott Valley rug cleaners can help here.

Moroccan sheep raised at higher heights produce more robust, high-quality wool than those raised at lower elevations.

Because lower-quality wool is less expensive to buy, some businesses that want to save money will buy it and mix it with various natural and synthetic filler fibers to make it strong enough to weave a rug out of it.

Longer pile shag of good quality In the first few months of its life, a Moroccan rug may shed because of the discharge of loose staple fibers or short fragments left over after the shearing process.

The quality of the wool determines how quickly the shedding stops. Higher quality wool and quality yarn production see’s the shedding stop. However, because the fibers have no intrinsic strength, the lower quality of wool and production will shed for the rest of its life.

If you have a Moroccan rug that is heavily shedding, you can get experts from Arizona Oriental to check for signs of moths. Unfortunately, the risks of moth eggs and larvae entering the home from these “shortcut” rugs are exceptionally high because they are not thoroughly cleaned during production.

With a good cleaning from an expert rug cleaner, you can cover all options and find your rug can last your years.
