Drying Area Rugs Properly is Critical for Cleaning!


Hi folks! Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ!  I wanted to take a moment today to share this little video of us drying this gorgeous Bokhara rug in our facility.

The reason that we laid this rug upside down on our drying table is so that it prevents dye migration during the drying process.  If there are any dyes that are trying to move around, our goal is to keep them from getting to the surface of the rug.  Having the air movers blowing beneath our drying table helps to create a fast day, which is exactly what area rugs need!

Non-professional rug cleaners get into trouble fast by not having the ability to properly dry the rug.  Without proper drying dyes can migrate, the rug can smell worse than before it was washed, and shrinkage and browning can occur.

This is why you should always choose a professional area rug cleaner like Arizona Oriental to get your area rugs cleaned!  Give us a call for more information today!

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