Rug Cleaner and How to Buy Prescott Valley, AZ Used Rugs



Hey there, folks! Ruthie, with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ, and we are in the middle of the week.

I understand it can be a wonderful experience in finding a used area rug that functions great within your home, specifically if that used rug is discovered cheap at a garage sale!

With buying a used area rug. I would advise every one of my customers to be careful as there are issues that we sometimes don’t notice until we get them back and become such a major issue!


Prescott Rug Cleaner Explains Things to Look for When Buying Area rugs?

Smells:  Often the area rugs can come from families in which the old owners were smokers, and the rug now has cigarette smells that need very extensive deodorizing techniques to be fixed. Urine smells might also be a concern–requiring you also to have your rug fully treated to remove the urine before you place this in your house.

Bugs: When the rug has been placed in a garage, being under the bed unprotected. The rug has a moth outbreak, which needs to be treated well before the rug can be washed. Of course, a rug might attract other creepy crawlies, which you don’t want to carry to your home.

Broken Down Latex:  Many tufted rugs last around ten years until the latex breaks down. It could contribute to a powdering effect-where the latex is falling out of the rug and creating imprints on your floor. There might be a powerful latex/gum odor flowing out of the rug which you don’t catch instantly. Put another way, the tufted rug’s rear can fall off and therefore need to be also replaced.
