Prescott Valley Rug Cleaning. How Experts Wrap Area Rugs?

I thought I’d discuss rug wrapping and when it’s appropriate to do so.

Keep in mind that at Arizona Oriental, we only want the best for our clients’ rugs. Naturally, therefore, we need to know what will happen to the rug once it arrives at its destination.


Hi, I’m Ruthie at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott.

There’s no need to wrap rugs if they are put back on the floor right away. We can deliver it and place it where it belongs. So there is no need for excessive wrapping.

A client may state that the rugs will not be returned to the floor because of renovations or a move. If the delay is just temporary, Arizona Oriental will gladly cover the rug in plastic for free to keep the dust off it.

PLASTIC IS ONLY TEMPORARY, and they should employ this method for only a few weeks. Area rugs, especially fine wool Persian, Oriental, and American Indian rugs, require enough ventilation.

Wool absorbs moisture naturally, and plastic will never suffice in the long run. For example, mold will grow and destroy the rug if you place a rug and moisture in a plastic bag.


Breathable Area Rug Wrap After Rug Cleaning in Prescott

We are hesitant to use this method even for short periods because mold can start in 48 hours under the right conditions.

For long-term storage, rugs should be wrapped in a breathable waterproof wrap. At Arizona Oriental, we supply a perfect wrap for transporting rugs from point A to B. We use a thicker cover than thin plastic to protect your rug from the harsh conditions seen in moving vehicles.

This breathable cover is the best solution for our clients who know their carpets will be preserved for a long time. Ask us whether we can help you keep your area rug from the elements, pests, dust, and other contaminants until you are ready to use it again after having your rugs cleaned by Arizona Oriental in Prescott, AZ.
