​​​​​​​ASK THE RUG EXPERTS: What is the BEST Product for At-Home Rug Cleaning?


Hi folks!  It’s me, Ruthie, with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ again!  Something that I’ve always learned time and again throughout my life is that it’s critical to choose the right tool for the job.  Wool and silk area rugs are no different!

I always caution my clients here away from using just any spotter on their area rugs, especially those with wool and silk fibers.  Unfortunately, all of the products that can be found on store shelves are much too strong and have a very high pH that will do some serious damage to rug fibers and dyes.

I’ve always been a firm believer that the time to prepare for the inevitable emergency spot cleaning is before it ever happens!  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found myself scrambling to find a rag and the right spotter for an emergency spill! Be it the nylon wall-to-wall carpet, the table cloth, or even my own clothes.  Imagine that panic when it comes to a spot on your fine area rug!

We at Arizona Oriental always want our clients rugs to be well cared for, both at our facility and at home as well.  This is why we stock a spotting kit SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED for wool and silk fibers!  This kit comes with three (3) spotters, each of which are designed to give you the best spotting results for the spot at hand.  I definitely recommend you stop in and pick up one of these kits so that you’re more prepared than ever for that inevitable spill before it even happens!

Using the right spotter can make all the difference in the world when it comes to achieving good results or, worse yet, making matters even worse!  It kind of acts just like a little insurance policy just in case something spills on your lovely, fine 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!
