Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott, AZ. Can Vacuuming Ruin Rugs

When you clean rugs at home, you need to pay extra attention to them between professional area rug cleanings. There are so many beautiful places to go and see in Arizona, but when we come home, we leave behind all the dust and dry soil we found outside.

Area Rug Cleaning, Prescott, AZ. Can Vacuuming Ruin Rugs

Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ. 

You can do a lot of damage to your area rugs if you don’t remove this dry soil from them right away. Damage from dry soil is mainly done to flat-weave rugs. This is because their delicate fibers are much more vulnerable to abrasive dry soil than rugs with a thicker pile, which are more resistant to the soil’s rough surface.

On a flat weave rug, what is the best way to clean? Always use a canister vacuum or an electric sweeper from Bissell or Shark to clean your flat weave area rugs. These have enough suction to get the dry soil out of your rug, but they’re still gentle on the fibers. A vacuum with a beater bar should never be used. These are too rough for delicate flat-weave rugs, and they will do more harm than good.


How You Vacuum Area Rugs at Home?

Keep your rug’s fringe and side cords in mind as you vacuum across the width of the rug, moving from side to side. You can use an upholstery tool or a soft brush attachment for small rugs to clean them.

That’s not enough to make your rug last for years and years! Your rugs should be cleaned by someone like Arizona Oriental every 1-3 years to keep them looking their best.

Area rugs that look soiled are likely to have fiber damage that can’t be cleaned. It would help if you did not let dry soil build up on your rugs to avoid this.

Arizona Oriental is here to help you keep your favorite area rugs in good shape. We can help you with everything from cleaning and repairs to at-home tips when you don’t have time for professional cleaning.
