What NOT To Do With Area Rugs - Prescott Valley AZ

                                                                                  Rug Finally Fixed and Cleaned.


Hi, I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.


It’s the start of the New Year and many people in the region have lots of dirty rugs. Besides this, there have been rugs in storage over the holidays, and there’s a chance they’ve been damaged from improper storage.

Here you can learn a bit more on both, and why you’ll need the help of a Prescott Valley area rug cleaning specialist.


What Happens in Correct Storage?

You can take your oriental designed rug and bunch it up. Then, if you stand it on its end in a warm area for safe storage, somewhere and you forgot about it. You can find it won’t lay flat any longer.

Such a rug is a tufted rug that they make with tufts of wool yarn poked through the fabric, and then they glue these tufts in position.

Since the glue dries out, putting it in the warm storage area you used will speed up the glue drying, thus creating these ripples.

To help conserve the tufted rug, keep it in a temperature-controlled setting. Storing a tufted rug in a hot attic or garage would speed up the drying out of the adhesive.


What Happens with Dry Area Rug Glue?

Once the glue has dried out, a tufted rug quickly deteriorates, and you’ll discover the following.

  • A cracking sound as the rug bends
  • White powder residue falls on the floor beneath the rug
  • You can see the lumpy, pea-size hard substances among the wool tufts, which is the monk’s cloth backing
