An unfortunate reality for us here at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott is that rugs come into us time and again with unnecessary and uneven wear and tear. This isn’t just something that will wash out with cleaning, either – the fibers in the wear areas are worn more than other areas of the rug.
My tip for you today is simple. Once about every six months or so, remember to turn your rug 180 degrees so that the daily traffic path will be distributed more evenly over your rug. Perhaps this is something that could be included in your spring and fall deep cleaning of your home. After all, you’ll already have your cleaning gal in there washing windows and wiping down baseboards, so why not get your rug rotated as well? Another perfect time for this to happen is when Arizona Oriental takes your rug to our shop for a thorough cleaning. On our return visit, it is the perfect time for us to assist you in turning your rug.
To help ensure that your rug(s) stay looking their best for extended periods, taking a few extra steps in their care is always a good idea. If you would like to speak to us about our service for turning your rug for more even wear, please do not hesitate to call.
Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
