Prescott Specialty Rug Cleaner Removes Powder Cleaners


Hi, folks! Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ.

We have experienced just about every Prescott, AZ oriental rug cleaning method workable for rugs from around the region that passes through our store. 

Large corporations spend thousands on advertising to lure customers away from a brand to their merchandise. Powder deodorization products are no different, and these firms still say their products are the finest.

In our quick look at it, you will see why it is better to leave the cleaning of oriental rugs to the professionals.


Basics of Powder Rug Cleaners

The products are promoted as something that magically eliminates the smell of puppy urine with only a small sprinkling of the product. But remember, this fresh smell soon transforms into realism - foul-smelling urine and excessively sweet flowers!

But the truth of these floral smelling products is that they do nothing to get rid of the root of the stink in your rug.  However, the best you can expect with these products is that they cover the odors for a short period.  Sources of odors need removing first!


What Happens?

Also, remember that salt crystals from urinary deposits can be extremely harmful to any rug fiber. If they remain unseen, and are left in your rug, dry rot can develop and cause serious damage to the rug fibers.  

Such dry rot causes cracks, crevices, and holes in your rug, ruining it. However, return to powdered deodorizers - they will not decontaminate your rug!

Regardless of the reason for the smell inside your rug, the bad bacteria or germs are still in your rug.  Would you like to have your family walking around or crawling on it?

At Arizona Oriental, we have seen more than a couple of fine rugs with a strong accumulation of this smelly powder. Occasionally it will have been so over-used that it will be severely compacted deeply into the fibers and weave of your oriental rug.

It will a challenge for a rug cleaning service to remove all the deodorizing powder from your rugs.
