Sedona AZ – Like Our Vehicles, Area Rug Care Should be Regularly Scheduled!
A lot of people don’t think for a second that their area rugs need regular, proper maintenance and care through the years. They’ll go 30 plus years without batting an eyelash or so much as thinking about the fact that their rug needs to be cleaned! Most people don’t realize how hard a rug’s life is – between all of the traffic our rugs get, the spills that happen with life, or dogs and cats using them as places to rest their head (or maybe even having accidents). Rugs certainly need more care than what the average owner is giving them.
At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care, we specialize in giving rugs exactly the care that they deserve and need!
Most people would NEVER let their vehicles go years and years without maintenance. That just creates more problems and makes the small problems bigger. Which of course leads to either very expensive repairs or needing to replace your whole car or truck much sooner than you should have needed to – either way, that’s way more money than you needed to spend! RUGS ARE THE EXACT SAME WAY, TOO!
Without professional cleaning, dry soil will build up among the fibers and grind away at their bases. At the microscopic level, this dry soil looks and acts very much like sandpaper, creating unnecessary wear and tear. Spills and spots left unattended will also work away at the rug fibers and deteriorate them. When it comes to urine, it is important that accidents are taken care of as soon as possible and not left to dwell. Urine deposits cause dry rot in the fibers, which will eventually cause the fibers to split and tear.
Many of my clients LOVE their area rugs and their area rugs mean a lot to them. Be it a family heirloom or something they picked up along their travels, these rugs are important! Especially for those clients who spend hours upon hours searching for the perfect rug for their house. Yet despite this, rugs are often neglected and proper care for them is never once considered. We Americans are great at keeping up with our vehicle maintenance, so why are we so bad at rug maintenance?!
It’s also important to not leave repairs left undone! Something that starts out as a tiny ½” repair will soon grow into a bigger repair because the rug will just continue to unravel and damage will just become more and more extensive. Neglecting repairs that your rug needs isn’t good for your rug and it certainly isn’t good in the long run when it comes to your budget!
