Grandma Knows Best – What You Might Not Know About Area Rugs – Prescott Valley AZ

We see a lot of beautiful rugs come to our rug washing facility at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ on EZ Street.  Some of the most highly regarded are the beautiful older rugs that would share more than a story or two if only they could talk.

Rugs were always meant to last many, many years, being handed down from generation to generation.  If your rugs are properly cared for, a good quality rug will last you for decades.

So what is it that Grandma knew that you might not know?  Grandma understood how critical it was to remove dry soil.  Remember those old cowboy flicks where there are women beating their rugs over clothes lines?  This is the first, and arguable most important, step in rug care.

By doing this, Grandma was knocking out the dry soil from the rug.  Things such as sand, little stones, and other debris tracked in on the cowboy boots.  After all, dry soil is the Number One cause of wear and tear.  Why? Because dry soil is just like sandpaper and will grind against your delicate rug fibers until the rug is left thread bare!  Knowing all of this, Grandma stayed one step ahead by regular rug beatings.

We at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care have evolved from wooden rug beaters to modern day dusters to ensure maximum dry soil removal.  Just one more reason you don’t want your rugs cleaned in your home – dusting simply isn’t an option for home cleaning services!  See and enjoy the difference when you have us professionally clean your area rugs and help ensure your rugs last for generations too.

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