How Area Rugs Can Affect Your Allergies with Spring Here Again!


Hi folks!  It’s me, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and that’s right, spring time is finally here again!  Flowers are beginning to bloom and things are finally starting to grow all over the place. There are those of us, though, who just hear “allergy season” whenever they think of spring.

It seems to be natural to those of us with allergies to avoid those allergens outside of our home.  Pollen can be found everywhere you look, settling on our cars and patio furniture. But did you know that pollen is settling even in our area rugs!?  Yep, if you’re having trouble getting relief from the sneezing, itchy eyes, or running nose while you’re inside your home, your area rug might be to blame.

Most folks don’t realize how much soil and pollen gets brought into our homes – from our shoes, our clothes, even just by opening up the doors or windows to let in a little fresh air.  Area rugs are filters for our homes and all that pollen, dog dander, and soil gets left behind on our area rugs and settles down into the fibers.

As I always tell my clients, frequently vacuuming is your first defense against these issues – it removes dry soil and pollen from the surface of your rug.  However, it’s certainly not a substitute for the deep, professional cleaning that Arizona Oriental provides. Vacuuming alone CANNOT remove the dry soil and pollen that has settled down into the knots of your area rugs, especially if it’s been a few years since you’ve had it professionally cleaned.

Now may be the perfect time to give us a call here at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care to have us pick up your rugs from your home!  Our deep cleaning process includes a thorough dusting to shake loose all that dry soil and pollen from your rugs, as well as a full submersion cleaning.  We use wool-safe cleaning solutions, quick dry rugs, and also do a post-cleaning inspection before your rug goes back home to you.

Have Arizona Oriental get rid of that pesky pollen so you can finally find some relief from your allergies in your home!

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