Laugh if you want, but it IS the prepared Boy Scout that survives emergencies! Some people think, “Oh that’ll never happen to me.” Really…….. do you think you and your area rugs are bullet proof or protected by the great rug Houdini?
Here at Arizona Oriental it is very common for rugs to come to us only after an accident. Whether it be a wine spill, dinner plate spilled over or the ever popular pet accident. Yep, we see it all. While we pride ourselves on being the “superman of rug cleaning” there is always the spot that has done permanent damage BEFORE Arizona Oriental ever sees the rug. The sad truth is, had the homeowner taken some prudent precautions they could have avoided the permanent stain.
Like a good Boy Scout rug owners should be prepared. My first tip is to keep a white cotton cloth somewhere handy for quick access at any moment when the unthinkable spill may occur. I find hiding a white cloth under my sofa cushion is just about as handy as it gets. Tell all your family members where you have placed this white cotton cloth so everyone is prepared.
Additionally it is wise to have the proper spotter on hand too. With wool and silk rugs it is extremely important to use a safe spotter. Most spotters on the market were never meant to be used on wool and silk. So what’s a rug owner to do? Call Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care. We anticipate “life happenings” and we offer for sale professional spotters in a small kit for our clients to keep on hand. These kits can make all the difference of success or failure when spotting. The sooner a spot is cleaned with the proper cleaning solution, the better the results you will achieve. It’s a simple fact of life.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
