Investing in a wool-silk rug is a smart move. Unfortunately, it’s pricey. Woolen rugs are attractive, durable, comfortable to maintain, and go nicely with home decor. However, don’t let “simple care” deceive you; cleaning a wool rug can be difficult, especially with the many powdered cleaners you can find.
Hi, folks! I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.
Maintaining a wool rug is just as important as buying one. Years of knowledge help professional cleaners restore rugs to their best condition. Professionals do cost, and for something so valuable, it is worth paying for Prescott rug cleaners to care for your rugs.
When washing wool rugs, yourself, be careful. Hundreds of individuals destroy their wool rugs using household vacuums or erroneous information from blogs that don’t specialize in Persian/Oriental rugs.
What Do Rug Cleaners Do?
A powerful fragrance permeates this powder. You’re using a floral perfume to cover up the faint smell of pee. This helps mask the pee odor, but only somewhat. It will probably smell faintly like pee now.
Like the chemical that gets trapped in your rugs for the stench, this one might be dangerous if it hangs around for too long. If you suffer from chemical sensitivities, the floral scent will linger long. It says “baking soda” on the label, but they don’t specify what other ingredients might be included.
Unfortunately, the powder doesn’t vacuum and instead becomes stuck in the rug’s backing, despite what the package claims.
Masking urine smells can be tricky because most products warn against using them on damp surfaces, but the urine smell will only intensify as it dries.
Scrub the area with a stiff brush and then vacuum it to remove any stubborn dirt (the spot). Even if you use a vacuum, the powder will remain on the underside of the rug since some of it will escape the suction.
If you use enough powdered air fresheners, your rug will become a powdery mess at the base and be fuzz-covered.
The fact that no shake and vac powder can eliminate odors is the primary reason they are ineffective.
Urine hurts rug fibers, so if this happens, don’t waste your money; contact Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott or fill in the compact form here for a direct reply.
