I know that you have seen them as often as I have – those advertisers saying that you can save 40%, 50%, or sometimes even more on their cleaning service. But how are they able to offer those discounts!? Is it really a good idea to take advantage of these discount?
Let’s be honest for a moment – cleaning fine area rugs like Persian, Oriental, American Indian, and even rugs that are not necessarily considered high quality “fine” rugs requires a very specific type of knowledge and experience to really know how to care for them properly. If the cleaner does not have that knowledge or experience, there can be some severe consequences that may not be able to be corrected.
So the first thing that you should ask yourself when you see these ads is this: HOW CAN THEY OFFER SUCH LOW PRICES & DEEP DISCOUNTS!?
My first instinct is to assume that one of two things are happening. Either their cleaning is overpriced to begin with and offering these ridiculously large discounts is affordable because of their high prices OR cleaning the rugs is so cheap for them that they are able to shirk on the quality of the work in return for the profit and are not actually cleaning your area rugs properly.
As I said before, cleaning Oriental and Persian rugs (ordinary rugs, too!) requires an extensive level of both skills and cleaning products and also takes time! At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ, we work hard to ensure that your rugs get the highest quality care and service available to them. Our cleaning technicians have been certified by the WoolSafe Organization, which means that they have been trained specifically to care for your fine area rugs. Our cleaning products are all wool and silk certified, allowing us to give your rug the exact care that it requires.
We clean area rugs that are valued at over $50,000, clients trust Arizona Oriental with their treasures because they know we will care for their rugs properly. The value of the average rug we clean is $2000 to $5000, still a considerable amount of money invested in these area rugs. Risking your rug to an uneducated cleaner could have severe consequences! Also consider if this coupon company carries the proper insurance to cover the value of the rug, should something go wrong with their type of cleaning.
By having a trusted and certified area rug cleaner care for your valuable rug, you are ensure you’re saving your rug and extending its life. It’s important to understand and value the difference between discount cleaners who probably don’t know what they are doing and professional, quality area rug cleaning.
Yes, coupons are attractive. Try not to get drawn in by them and make an impulsive decision because you think you’re getting a great deal out of it. It may end up costing you your entire rug rather than saving you whatever money the advertised coupon will. We at Arizona Oriental see rugs come to us that have been cleaned by uneducated and inexperienced cleaners and have come to us damaged from bleeding dyes, shrinkage, and even odors! Not only do these clients end up paying for a bad first cleaning, they also need to pay for a proper cleaning and even possibly expensive corrective procedures.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
