Rug Tips From Grandma!  What You May Not Have Known About Area Rugs….


Hi folks, I’m Ruthie!  Here at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, we see tons of beautiful rugs in our washing facility in Prescott AZ every day!  Many of my favorite rugs are those that have been around a long time and could definitely share more than a story or two if they could speak.

Rugs are meant to last many years on our floors, handed down from generation to generation!
With the proper care, rugs will last your family for decades to come!

What’s a rug care tip from Grandma that she may have never told you?  She understood just how critical it was to remove dry soils from area rugs! This is the first, and arguably the most important, step in proper rug care!  Grandma certainly knew what she was doing!

Remember those old cowboy movies that showed a woman beating a rug over a clothes line?  They were knocking out the dry soil, sand, little stones, and all the other debris tracked onto the rug.  Dry soil is the NUMBER ONE cause of wear and tear on area rugs!  Dry soil acts just like sandpaper and grinds against your delicate rug fibers until the rug becomes threadbare.  By giving her rugs a good beating and dusting, Grandma was staying one step ahead of this problem.

Here at Arizona Oriental, we don’t use wooden rug beaters anymore, but we do use modern day dusters to ensure maximum dry soil removal for all of the rugs that come in to our facility.  This is another good reason you wouldn’t want your rugs cleaned in your home - dusting just isn’t an option! When you have your rugs professionally cleaned with us, you will see and love the difference!

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