Tip of the Day – What Should I Do About a Loose Yarn on My Area Rug? – Prescott Valley AZ

Hi folks, Ruthie (me) and the Ruggies (my wonderful rug washing wizards) at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care are more than happy to provide tips from time to time to help you care for your area rugs.  Have you noticed any loose yarns poking up at you from your area rug?  If you have a rug that has plush face fibers, then you can snip it off without harming the rug without pulling it up any further.  HOWEVER if your area rug has looped face fibers and one of the loops has been snagged and pulled up by a shoe, a vacuum, or a pet NEVER cut it off!  These loops are continuous and snipping away will break the continuous thread, which will then allow the rug to unravel.  Yarn pulls might seem unsightly to you now but just wait until your rug starts unravelling!

Arizona Oriental is here to help you preserve your beautiful rugs so they last you many years.  We clean rugs, yes, but we can also help with proper repairs.  Another quick tip for you is to address repairs as soon as possible to prevent the damage from getting worse over time and creating a more extensive and costly repair.

Here in Prescott, Arizona Oriental offers free estimates for both cleaning and repairs for area rugs.
