Tufted Rug Repairs – Yes, Your Lovely Tufted Rug Still Has Hope! – Sedona AZ
There are many different types of rugs. Hand knotted rugs are finer and can last many generations. There is also a type of rug that mimics hand knotted rugs but is manufactured in a different way entirely. Tufts of wool fibers are pushed through a cloth base and then a layer of glue is applied to hold all of these loose fibers in place. To obtain a finished look, a piece of monkscloth is glued to the back of the rug. This style of rug with this manufacturing is called a tufted rug.
Glue dries and begins break down in about 10 years, so a tufted rug will need repair once this deterioration happens. Here, you can see photos of a tufted rug that came into us with dried glue and had also been stored improperly, all bunched up. The rug would not lay flat correctly on the floor.
THE SOLUTION? Removing the old backing, scraping off the dried up glue, then applying fresh glue and a fresh, clean piece of cloth to the back.
