Prescott Valley Rug Cleaners: Why Not Powder Rug Cleaners?

If I knew that unsuspecting consumers were harming their rugs by using the wrong types of products, I’d be on the case quickly.

Hi, folks! I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care. It’s almost the New year, so another shortly before the end of the year.

Once you have bought the rug deodorizer, you would believe it was an amazing product that can help your rugs smell nice and help to clean them. Or that is what it says on the label.

The labels always appear to claim a “2 in 1 rug and room deodorizer, which genuinely helps tough odors, then leaves a light, clean aroma in your home.” Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. All Powders Leave a Harmful Residue and don’t clean or remove smells as intended. A Prescott Valley rug cleaner can do a far better job and do it right first time.


What Powder Rug Cleaners Do To Your Rugs

It’s a highly scented powder. You are disguising a trace of urine stench with a floral aroma. The urine odor is still there, although it is partly covered up. Now, it will not certainly smell a little bit like pee.

Similarly, it is also a chemical that traps in your rug for the smell, although it can be dangerous if it lingers in the rug. The floral aroma persists for an extended time for anyone with chemical sensitivities. On the label, it is manufactured with baking soda; however, they don’t identify all the components that may be present.

It clogs your rug foundation with powder and doesn’t vacuum up as the recommendations indicate. In addition, directions will state to not apply on any wet surfaces; thus, if you’re concealing pee, the urine stench will likely get more intense by the time it dries out.

If you have a tough spot, rub it with a firm brush, then vacuum it (the spot) (the spot). Using a vacuum does not get all out the powder because much of the powder won’t be vacuumed up in the vacuum but will wind up on the backside of the rug.

Along with fuzzed-up rugs, if you use enough powder air fresheners, you’ll have a powdery mess at the foundation of your rug.

The most significant reason any shake and vac powder won’t work is that they do nothing to eradicate odors.
