Prescott Valley AZ – Is It a Good Idea to Have a Cleaning Company Clean My Area Rug in My Home?

Prescott Valley AZ – Is it a Good Idea to Have a Cleaning Company Clean My Area Rug in My Home?

So you’ve got an area rug in your home that you know needs to be cleaned, but do you have to go through all the trouble of bringing it into a specialty, professional rug cleaner or can you just have it done in your home?  Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ never recommends having your rugs cleaned in your home.  Simply put, it is much more difficult to have control over all of the different things you need to control in a client’s home than in a rug washing facility.

It may also be impossible to correct any problems that may arise when cleaning in a client’s home.  These issues can include (but are certainly not limited to) color bleed, shrinkage, or even musty odors from improper drying.  Additionally, urine decontamination may not be possible when cleaning in the home.  Both fine Oriental and Persian area rugs and even the most affordable rugs are subject to these problems and unfortunately can end up ruined if the proper care is not taken.

Would you ask a mechanic or your hair colorist to come to your home and work with limited resources on what you needed done?  Of course not!  That’s because you know that some things just require certain environments, equipment, and conditions that are simply not available in the home.  Area rug cleaning is the same way.

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ, we have a very controlled environment perfectly suited for cleaning area rugs of all kinds.  Each rug gets washed exactly the way that it requires with custom matched, fiber-specific cleaning solutions that are certified for the specific fibers of your rug.  We are also able to block rugs to reshape if necessary (which can’t be done in your home) and use commercial equipment, proper temperature, as well as high air movement to ensure a fast dry.  As you can probably guess, these aren’t exactly procedures that can be duplicated in your home.  If you want a deep and proper cleaning for your rug (which it needs every 1-3 years anyway), you’ll need to bring it into our shop. We offer free estimates as well as pick-up and delivery!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
