Prescott Valley AZ – Can I Just Vacuum My Rug Regularly or Do I Need to Do More?

Prescott Valley AZ – Can I Just Vacuum My Rug Regularly or Do I Need to Do More?

Some folks are really good at keeping on top of maintenance in their home.  They keep all of the records of when something was done and when it’s time for their rug’s next cleaning.  In the meantime, they vacuum almost obsessively.  This gives them the bonus of keeping their rug looking cleaner longer and keeping it on their floors longer than rugs that don’t get vacuumed as frequently.  Vacuuming daily means that the top dry soil gets removed before it ever has the chance to work itself down into the rug’s fibers where it does the most damage.  While vacuuming this often is great, this is just a start because there is a LOT more than just the dry sand particles when it comes to soil.

Obviously you can avoid tracking in the wet soil from a rainy day by removing your shoes at the door.  But have you thought about the germs and the other dirt that gets on your rug that isn’t removable by just vacuuming?  Viruses and germs are in our homes whether we like it or not and live on every surface in our homes.  Some of us also have pets that love to lay on our rugs and get not only their body oils and dirt on the rugs but there are also some that lick the rug obsessively for hours on end.  Or maybe your pet is the one that likes to scoot their butt across the rug.  Even our bare feet have natural oils and body lotions, not to mention B.O. and athletes foot!

Think it’s time for a professional cleaning yet?  Give Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ a call and get your rug taken care of properly and give it a much needed thorough cleaning!
