A Guide To Cleaning Area Rugs - Sedona AZ

A Guide to Cleaning Rugs - Sedona, AZ

There are many different ways to wash area rugs, which is why you shouldn’t ask what the RIGHT way to clean rugs is, but instead ask what the BEST way to clean Persian and Oriental rugs is.

The type of rug itself is key to determining what the best method of cleaning is.  For instance, wool and silk knotted rugs do best with full submersion cleaning with fresh water and cleaning solutions specially certified to care for those fibers.  With everything, however, you shouldn’t consider this a rule because there are exceptions.  One such exception is color stability.  Some dyes are extremely unstable and must be treated differently to keep the dyes from migrating where they shouldn’t.  Another exception is some foundations that are not suitable for a full submersion washing.  The better option in this instance is to do our dry cleaning method.  Delicate antique rugs require a very gentle and light cleaning done with a hand tool so that there is a higher level of control over moisture and suction.

The fact that there are various ways to clean area rugs is the primary reason why we at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care take our initial inspection of area rugs so seriously.  We consider it KEY to determining which method of cleaning would best suit your Persian and Oriental area rugs.  Our experienced and skilled technicians will determine this method themselves for each individual rug.  Having your rug cleaned in your home by yourself holds with it far too many pitfalls, which is why many home cleaning services avoid those by bringing their clients rugs into us, Prescott’s very own rug experts!  Knowing your limitations is a great first step in the proper cleaning and care of Persian and Oriental area rugs.

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
