Can I Clean My Rugs? Prescott Valley Rug Cleaner

Can I clean my rug if it contains stains from food, drinks, etc.? You risk damaging both your rug and your home if you consider using a machine to clean your rugs.

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

Experts in Arizona Oriental claim that most people don’t care too much about what they don’t understand about area rugs.

You can understand why many individuals don’t properly maintain an area rug.

The most common reason for these questions about cleaning homes is food and drink stains from parties.

If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to clean your area rug, causing no problems, but before you take that risk, think about the bigger picture, and you’ll see why you should commit this task to your Prescott Valley area rug cleaning specialist.

Here are a few instances of what could go wrong if you try to use a home rug cleaning machine to remove stains from a rug.

  • The unstable dyes in your area rug cause color bleeding.
  • The low-powered machine overwets the rug, making it challenging to completely dry it off, leading to musty odors and mold growth.
  • Your rug’s animal urine stains won’t be entirely removed, and the additional moisture can make them smell even worse.
  • The base strands may contract, distort, or ripple your rug.
  • The rug may even be “ugly out” and appear to have not been cleaned if the fibers mat down and flatten out.
  • Also, remember that any home cleaning machine’s cleaning supplies aren’t designed to clean wool or silk fabrics.
  • In addition to the other problems mentioned above, cleaning these sensitive fibers using non-WOOLSAFE CERTIFIED solutions might cause significant fiber damage.


Why does professional rug cleaning outperform DIY efforts? Compared to what we can do at our rug-washing facility, you couldn’t get it as clean on your own. Our cleaning products and tools can clean fine wool and silk area rugs.

We also have the training, certifications, and know-how to properly clean area rugs.

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