Can’t Get Any Relief from Allergy Season?  Why Your Area Rug May Be a Culprit – Prescott AZ

Can’t Get Any Relief from Allergy Season?  Why Your Area Rug May Be a Culprit – Prescott AZ

Hi folks!  Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ and it may seem like it was just yesterday that the leaves were turning colors.  However, it’s Spring once again and that means a time of new growth and flowers blooming all over the place.  For many of us, it also means allergy season.

We’re used to having to avoid allergens while outside of our home. There’s pollen to be found everywhere you look – settling on our cars and patio furniture.  If you’re having trouble getting relief from the sneezing, runny nose, or itchy eyes while you’re in your home, there may be another culprit – your area rugs could be loaded with pollen as well as other irritants such as cat and dog dander.

Most folks don’t realize just how much gets brought into our homes from outside.  This isn’t just limited to the dirt that the kids have tracked in from playing outside.  Pollen comes inside our homes stuck to our shoes or even from open windows.  This pollen then gets left behind on your area rugs and settles down into the fibers.  Not even our home is a safe haven away from allergies anymore!

Vacuuming frequently is great at removing the soil and pollen on the surface of your rug.  However, it can’t remove the dry soil and pollen that has settled down into the base of your area rug, where all the knots are.  If you find that you can’t get any relief at all from your allergies, it might be a good time to take your rug to Arizona Oriental for a deep cleaning.  We also offer pick-up and delivery if you can’t bring it to us yourself.

Arizona Oriental will get your rug nice and clean – from a thorough dusting that removes an astonishing amount of dry soil, to a full submersion cleaning with wool-safe cleaning solutions, to drying and a post inspection.  We’ll be sure to remove that pesky pollen from your rug so you can finally find some relief from your allergies.

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