Tufted Wool Rug Repairs – Prescott AZ
YES THERE IS HOPE FOR YOUR LOVELY TUFTED AREA RUG
There are many types of rugs. The finer rugs are hand knotted and can last many generations. There is another type of rug that mimics a hand knotted rug, however it actually is manufactured by pushing tufts of wool fibers through a cloth (cloth is the base) and then a layer of glue is applied to hold all these loose wool tufts in place. A finished look is obtained by gluing a piece of monkscloth to the back. This style of manufacturing is called a tufted rug.
Because glue dries and begins to breaks down in about 10 years a tufted rug will need repair once this deterioration happens. Here are photos showing a tufted rug that not only has dry glue, but was stored improperly all bunched up and now the rug will not lay flat correctly on the floor.
SOLUTION: Remove the old backing, scrape off the dried up glue, reapply fresh glue and apply a fresh, clean piece of cloth.
If you have a rug that you love and it is showing signs of needing a repair, Arizona Oriental and Specialty rug can help you.
