Prescott Rug Cleaner. How To Buy and Clean Used Rugs?

I understand that finding a used area rug that works well in your house may be a fantastic experience, mainly if that used rug is found at a great price at a garage sale!

Prescott Rug Cleaner. How To Buy and Clean Used Rugs?

Hey there, folks! Ruthie, with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ.

However, there are a few factors to consider when purchasing a used area rug. First, I would tell all my customers to be cautious, as there are some faults that we don't discover until we receive them back, and then they become a significant problem!

Here you can find out why you need a Prescott rug cleaning expert.


Prescott Rug Cleaner Tips To Buy Used Rugs

Smells: Area rugs frequently come from families where the previous owners were smokers, and the rug now has cigarette odors that require substantial deodorizing treatments. Pee odors may also be an issue, necessitating the treatment of your rug to remove the urine before placing it in your home.

Bugs: When the rug is stored in a garage, it is exposed under the bed. The rug has a moth infestation that must be treated thoroughly before being washed. On the other hand, a rug may attract other creepy crawlies, which you don't want to bring into your home.

Broken Down Latex: Many tufted carpets have a ten-year lifespan before the latex breaks down. It could cause a powdering effect, in which latex from the rug falls out and leaves imprints on the floor. In addition, there could be a pungent latex/gum stench coming from the carpeting that you overlook right away. To put it another way, the tufted rug's back can fall out and will need to be replaced as well.
