Getting Smart with Regular Professional Area Rug Cleaning – Sedona AZ
I think just about everyone understands that wool fibers can usually be relied on to hide a lot of soil. Most wool rugs have a thick pile that allows soil to wiggle its way down to the base of the rug, hiding away from any prying eyes. Doing some weekly vacuuming usually takes care of any soil that’s showing on the top of your rug. Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and the truth is that, while vacuuming does a great job at removing this dry soil, there’s just no substitute for a professional deep cleaning.
What does “regular cleaning” mean anyway?
Arizona Oriental suggests our clients have their area rugs
professionally cleaned every 2-3 years.
Keep in mind that if your dogs are cats are having urine/fecal accidents on your rugs, you will need to have your area rugs cleaned professionally more often. You should ALWAYS have animal urine spots professionally removed as soon as possible. Doing so helps to avoid permanent damage to the fibers and foundation of your area rug.
Have you noticed that the area rug you have in the heavy traffic area of your home is starting to look a little dingy? This is your rug’s way of telling you that it can’t handle much more soil and NEEDS to be cleaned! When you see traffic patterns in your area rug, you’re really seeing the aftermath of dry soil microscopically grinding away at your rug fibers (like sandpaper). At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, our experience has been that heavily soiled area rugs typically don’t respond as well to cleaning. This is because permanent fiber damage has typically occurred in these cases.
You should also remember that rugs located in high traffic areas typically require professional cleaning more frequently. On the other hand, rugs in lower traffic areas (like your guest room) can usually go 3 years between cleanings.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
