Tip of The Day- What to Do About a Loose Yarn on Your Area Rug?

Hi there, Ruthie (me) and the Ruggie’s (my wonderful rug washing wizards) at Arizona Oriental are happy to offer tips from time to time to help you care for your area rugs.  Does your rug have a loose yarn poking up at you? If your area rug has plush face fibers then, without pulling it up any further, you can snip it off without harming the rug. HOWEVER if your area rug has a looped face fiber design and one of the loops has been snagged and pulled up (perhaps from a vacuum, a shoe or your pet) NEVER cut it off!  The loops are continuous and cutting will break the continuous thread, which will allow the rug pile to unravel. If you think the pull is unsightly, just wait till the rug starts to unravel!

Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care is here to help you preserve your beautiful area rugs. Not only do we clean area rugs, we can certainly help you with proper repairs too. Another tip is to address repairs as quickly as possible as damage that is let go will ultimately worsen over time, creating a more extensive repair need at a much more costly repair charge.

Here at Arizona Oriental in Prescott we offer free estimates for both cleaning and repairs of area rugs. Give us a call today while you are thinking about your rugs and before you get busy and forget!
