Have you ever vacuumed your rug or carpet to only find that it has suddenly gotten a few pop-up strands of fiber? Don’t worry, that is what is known as ‘Sprouting’ and it is actually quite common and while it can be slightly irritating, it is not a reason for alarm. A simple way to remove these sprouts is to simply trim the sprout to the height of the pile of your rug, Do not just pull them out! This will cause your beautiful rugs to have bald spots. And while bald can be beautiful for people, it is not something you want for your Oriental rug. If you are in doubt, call us, we can help. We are happy to advise you or pick up your rug to help it look its best.
Another handy tip is to be sure that your beloved furry family member is treating your rug right as well. If they are scratching at your beautiful rug, it can cause pulls that need to be immediately repaired.
As you can see, the major difference between a sprout and a pull is that sprouting happens naturally over time and normal wear from vacuuming or even just walking on the fibers. Where as a pull is often caused by pet scratching or other un natural pulling on the fibers, such as heavy furniture being pushed around, etc.
