Choosing a Safe Spotter (cleaning solution) for Your Fine Area Rugs – Prescott AZ 7/22/16 9pm

Choosing a safe spotter for your fine area rugs – Prescott AZ

Choosing the right product for the job is critical, especially when we are talking about a spotter for a fine area rug. Here at Arizona Oriental in Prescott AZ we caution folks from using just any spotter on wool and silk fibers. Unfortunately just about all products I see on the store shelves are much too strong with a very high pH that will surely do harm to the rug fibers and dyes.

I’m Ruthie, and I believe the time to prepare for the inevitable emergency spot cleaning is before it ever happens! How many times have you found yourself in the situation where you are scrambling to find a rag and the right spotter for an emergency spill? Perhaps for the nylon wall to wall carpet or a table cloth or your own clothes. Imagine the panic you’ll encounter when it’s a spot on your fine area rug. This is why I suggest, just like a good Boy Scout or Girl Scout you prepare ahead.

At Arizona Oriental we want your rugs to be well cared for. For this reason we keep on hand, for sale, a spotting kit specifically designed for wool and silk fibers. There are 3 spotters in the kit, each designed to assist you in the best spotting results for the spot on hand. I suggest you stop by and purchase one of these kits before the accident occurs so you will be properly prepared.  Using the correct vs. incorrect spotter can make all the difference between achieving good results or worse yet, making matters even worse! Think of it as your little insurance policy just in case something spills on your lovely, fine area rugs.

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