Can I Clean My Rug Like a Pro? Prescott Valley Rug Cleaner

Can I Clean My Rug Like a Pro? Chances are, if you contemplate hiring a machine to do your own rug cleaning, you could make a mess of your rug and your home.


Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ.

I know that most people give little thought to what they don't understand about area rugs. Most people don't understand how to properly care for an area rug, and you can understand why.

You will be successful in cleaning your own area rug causing no problems if you have a lot of luck on your side.

But, before you take that leap of faith, consider the big picture, and you'll see why you should delegate this task to your Prescott Valley area rug cleaning specialist.

Here are just a few of the things that can go wrong with a Rug Doctor:


  • Color bleeding occurs because of unstable dyes in your area rug.

  • Over-wetting the rug and being unable to extract all the water because of the low-powered machine, resulting in musty odors and even mold growth.

  • Animal urine deposits will not be completely removed from your rug, and the added moisture may cause them to smell even worse than they were before!

  • The foundation fibers may shrink, causing the rug to be misshapen or rippled.

  • Fibers may even mat down and flatten out, causing the rug to "ugly out" and not appear to have been cleaned at all!

  • Also, keep in mind that the cleaning products included with the Rug Doctor are NOT intended to clean wool or silk fibers!

  • Cleaning these delicate fibers with non-WOOLSAFE CERTIFIED products can lead in a lot of fiber damage, as well as all of the other issues listed above.

  • The main reason professional rug cleaning outperforms self-cleaning? You won't be able to get it as clean as we can in our rug washing facility on your own! We have the cleaning tools and solutions to clean fine wool and silk area rugs.

  • We also have the training, certification, and knowledge to clean area rugs properly.

Instead of renting a filthy Rug Doctor machine and risking damaging your area rugs, contact Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care today! We'll get your area rug sparkling clean while saving you the time and effort of doing it yourself!


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