Wash Rugs Without Shrinking. Prescott, AZ Rug Cleaner

To what extent would an area rug shrink if I wash it by hand? you can give me two different answers. It might get smaller or distort itself.

Wash Rugs Without Shrinking. Prescott, AZ Rug Cleaner

Hi, folks!  It’s Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here on a beautiful Friday in Prescott AZ!  

Do Rugs Shrink Which Arizona Oriental Wash?

Our team has spent years perfecting methods for washing rugs without causing them to lose their shape, so the short answer is no.

When cared for properly, it is extremely unusual for a rug to shrink in the wash. But, of course, there are always outliers!

It's possible for carpets to become misshapen if they're woven improperly and then stretched and straightened once weaving is complete. It's no surprise that things have a strong tendency to drift back towards their original distorted state over time.

It's possible you've also seen how a handcrafted rug is shorter on one end than the other. Of course, after washing and drying, the rug can be gently re-stretched back to its original shape.

Remember that these rugs will always prefer their original, distorted state. It is possible that the shape of some rugs is irreparably damaged.

Repeatedly, it is quite unusual for a rug to shrink throughout our washing process. If you are unsure about this with your rug, please give us a call so that we may address any questions you may have.

Be sure to take full use of your new floor covering until we meet again, and keep in mind that well cared-for carpets can survive for generations without looking worn.
