It's Gingerbread Village time in Prescott and I'm thankful that this event has not been canceled due to covid 19. If you need a little pick-me-up for the holidays, head over to The Prescott Resort to enjoy the annual Gingerbread Village in their lobby. Not this year, but in years past I had an entry. It was so much fun to imagine Santa visiting Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.... he even helped us make deliveries that year. So whether you're naughty or nice, some times bad things happen to your area rugs, especially as we celebrate Christmas and the New Year.
One tip = BE READY! Hide a white towel under your sofa cushion just in case there is an eggnog or worse yet a wine spill. You will then be ready in a snap, to quickly soak up the spill. Getting most of the spill up fast will help to achieve better overall cleaning results later. You may chose to use a little clear dish detergent and cool water to help blot up the rest. Try not to rub to hard as this can damage the fibers. It's always best to do a small test area to make sure the dyes of the rug do not run with your spotting efforts. If you see the colors running, simply blot to get the rug fibers as dry as possible. Once you have done all that you can, it will be time to call Arizona Oriental for a professional cleaning to remove any remaining substance. It is not healthy for your area rug to leave food or drink in the pile for any length of time. Long term this can cause permanent staining or possibly dry rot.
