DON’T JUST CROSS YOUR FINGERS! Make Sure You’re Using a Trusted Area Rug Cleaner!


I folks, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here and I know it can be tempting to just choose one of those carpet cleaning companies in town that advertises that they can clean area rugs.  After all, most of the time their prices seem totally reasonable to clean your rug in your home! That, or you decide to just save yourself the money altogether and just do it yourself with one of those Rug Doctor machines from the supermarket or with your at-home carpet cleaner.

But let me just stop you right there - cleaning area rugs is a whole different world from cleaning wall-to-wall carpets and just crossing your fingers and hoping it’ll work won’t save your rugs from disaster.  I know that it can be really tempting to try and save yourself money, but just trust me when I say that trying to save yourself money will only cost you more in the long run when it comes to your area rugs.

Here are just a few of the things that can go wrong when you have your rugs cleaned at home:

  • Bleeding dyes from not using the correct cleaning solutions or not being able to set them properly.

  • Shrinkage and rippling from overwatering and/or insufficient drying.

  • Odors and mold/mildew growth from overwatering and/or insufficient drying and water removal.

  • Matting down of the fibers because of incorrect cleaning solutions.

Arizona Oriental cleans area rugs EXACTLY HOW THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO BE CLEANED!  We have an extensive pre-cleaning process designed to tell us how your rug needs to be cleaned and what needs to be done for your rug - from repairs,pre-treating the colors to prevent them from bleeding, treating for animal urine, etc.  We have the training and equipment necessary to handle whatever your area rug throws our way. And even better, we don’t have to cross our fingers to know that your rugs will turn out absolutely beautiful!

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