Prescott Shag Area Rug Cleaning Tips


Hi folks, Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here once again in beautiful Prescott, AZ! 

I thought it might be interesting to talk about a kind of rug which comes in several various styles, though with some cleaning difficulties, it’s pretty standard: shag rugs!

You know and I do that shag rugs seem to bring extra cleaning duties if you own one of these lovely rugs, particularly since they seem to accumulate almost everything that falls into the threads!

Besides rolling up your shag area rug and carrying it to us here in Arizona Oriental for professional rug cleaning.

There are several things you can do to make sure you stop it trying to gather everything. 

Keep in mind, by the way, that shag rugs need more frequent skilled cleaning than normal rugs. To phrase it clearly, they’re undoubtedly among the most high-maintenance area rugs!


Prescott Professional Shag Rug Care Tips  

You can stop using a standard vacuum on the shag rug - the fibers can be pulled out by doing so.

Rather, with very great success, you can “dust” your rug. Just grab your family members or neighbor and take your rug to the backyard and give it a good shake. Whatever your rug has chosen and got its fibers on, it displaces it.

You will not get rid of everything on your rug, but they’re going to take care of much of it! Carry on shaking until nothing else falls from your rug.

You can turn the rug face up and use the shop vac hose or the upholstery tool attachment of your standard vacuum and go over the surface of your rug after you shake your rug out.

Be careful that perhaps the suction may be too strong for the fibers of your rug, since some rugs include looser fibers than the others and can be easier to pull out.


Specialist Rug Cleaning in Prescott, AZ

A dog grooming brush with a large tooth will help with sheepskin rugs as well. If you have a rug with silky, synthetic fibers, do not use this process! You can accidentally harm the fibers.

You can stay on top of your shag rug’s treatment with regular dustings and skilled cleanings with us here at Arizona Oriental and keep it looking beautiful longer!
