Some folks are just better at regular maintenance than others. They schedule every little thing, keep immaculate records and know how long it is until their next rug cleaning is due. Oh and when it comes to their own in home maintenance for their rugs they can hardly stand to leave their vacuums sit for more than 24 hours without a good workout. The bonus of all their efforts with this diligent vacuuming is that they will enjoy their rugs staying cleaner longer. The constant removal of dry soil is their secret to lowering dry soil build up and the sand-paper like effects it has and damage dry soil does to rug fibers. Yes, their rugs will look better and last much longer than the rugs of the average person whose rugs see much less vacuum efforts. HOWEVER – the reality is there is more to soil than the dry sand particles that make their way into our homes on the bottom of shoes.
There’s the obvious soil like the rainy day and the wet footprints that come with it, but kicking your shoes off at the door will solve that problem. What about the less obvious reasons rugs collect dirt and germs? Consider viruses in the home and the germs that all surfaces of your home are exposed to. Then there is the obsessive pet that will sit on the rug for hours licking the rug (because that’s what some pets do), or bare feet with both lotions and natural body oils not to mention B.O. and athletes feet. Oh, and one last visual aid, there’s the pet that likes scooting on his butt across the rug! YEP, it just might be time to call Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in northern Arizona for a thorough rug cleaning!
