Sedona AZ – Should I Clean or Replace My Inexpensive Area Rug?

Do you have an inexpensive area rug that you’ve had for a number of years and it’s starting to look worn down and dirty.  The question is, do you replace it, or do you get it cleaned?  Customers often approach us here at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care with this question and I can understand why.  But what they often don’t think about when they ask this question is what they have created with their interior decorating in the room (or their whole house, for that matter!).  As I’m sure you know, rugs are the centerpieces for many of our living spaces and we match our pillows and curtains and even sometimes our walls to the colors in the rug to tie the whole room together.

Not only is this a consideration, but it may not even be possible to replace and get the exact (or very similar) rug with the exact colors that you need.  Rugs aren’t as easy to replace as a wardrobe – you have to consider the size, the colors, and the design.  The store you bought the rug from likely doesn’t carry the same rug anymore if you’ve had it for a number of years.  Do you really want to go through the trouble of completely redecorating the entire home over a rug that you love?  What if you’ve inherited the rug from a grandmother or a parent?  What it lacks in monetary value can have very strong sentimental value and that isn’t just something you can throw out and be done with! At Arizona Oriental we understand completely when a rug comes to us with little monetary value but truly is a treasure to the client. We promise to take excellent care of your treasures too.

Don’t be tempted to just call your local carpet cleaner to clean it – they don’t necessarily have the training to treat area rugs like they need to be treated when it comes to cleaning.  They don’t consider the type of fiber of the rug or the structure of it that determines the type of cleaning it really needs.  Let’s be honest – wall-to-wall carpet is very different from your area rugs.  Most wall to wall carpet cleaners simply cannot provide as thorough of a cleaning that a rug needs in order to make it look its best allowing you to keep it and enjoy it for many more years.

At Arizona Oriental, we take the extra steps to make sure that your rug gets exactly the care that it needs – and deserves!  Our procedures include a very thorough inspection and a dye migration test to ensure the colors are stable before we even begin the cleaning process.  This ensures that we know exactly what your rug needs and how it needs to be cleaned. With careful dusting to shake lose all of that dry soil that has accumulated in your rug over the years and fresh cleaning solutions matched SPECIFICALLY to your rug, you are assured your rug is getting exactly what it needs.
