Carpet Cleaners and Professional Rug Washers – What’s the Difference? – Sedona AZ

Carpet Cleaners and Professional Rug Washers – What’s the Difference? – Sedona AZ

Hi folks!  Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and I have one question for you today – Do you understand the difference between having your area rug professionally cleaned by us and having it cleaned in your home by your wall-to-wall carpet cleaner?  Most people don’t and that’s okay – that’s why I wanted to talk about what the BIG DIFFERENCE really is!

The number one difference between Arizona Oriental & wall-to-wall carpet cleaners is WOOLSAFE CERTIFICATION. This means that our area rug cleaning specialists here at Arizona Oriental have gone through extensive training to be certified as WOOLSAFE FIBRE CARE SPECIALISTS through the very prestigious WOOLSAFE ORGANISATION.  Our rug cleaning technicians have the knowledge and experience to clean area rugs the way they’re supposed to.  We use only specially-formulated cleaning solutions and equipment designed to care for fine area rugs.

This is something that wall-to-wall carpet cleaners DON’T have and most carpet cleaners mistakenly think that they’ve got the right skills to care for area rugs too.  However, they simply don’t have the understanding about what fine area rug cleaning entails.  They don’t truly understand the potential problems (like shrinkage, dye bleed, or the potential for musty odors) that can come from using improper cleaning techniques on area rugs.

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, our dedicated rug washing facility is equipped with all of the right tools that we need.  Our cleaning process ensures rugs get exactly what they need too!  We inspect all rugs before we even begin cleaning to make sure we understand the specific needs of each individual area rug.  Our rugs are cleaned one at a time with a method to that rug specifically.  We NEVER batch clean, which means our clients don’t have to worry about cross-contamination from another rug’s problem dyes or animal urine.

That’s not to say carpet cleaners aren’t good at cleaning wall-to-wall carpet, but Arizona Oriental is the best bet for cleaning area rugs.  Synthetic wall-to-wall carpets are a completely different animal from wool and silk area rugs when it comes to cleaning.  Steaming an area rug in your driveway or in place on your floor just isn’t the best way to clean area rugs because there are simply too many things that can go wrong!

Make sure your area rugs are taken care of the right way and hire a professional, certified area rug cleaner like Arizona Oriental to prevent risking your beloved area rug from being ruined by a wall-to-wall carpet cleaner.

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