Sure Fire Ways That Really Work To Help Prevent Permanent Stains On Your Fine Area Rugs - Prescott AZ

Sure Fire Ways That Really Work To Help Prevent Permanent Stains on Your Fine Area Rugs - Prescott AZ


Little ones are good at a few things. Imagination, stealing our hearts AND MAKING MESSES! Oh and did I mention some adults (myself included) are pretty good at making messes too. I’m Ruthie here at Arizona Oriental and I know that the trick is to understand this: Messes are just one spill, muddy step or sick child away from potentially ruining your fine area rug. PREPARING for the unavoidable spot and emergency cleaning is critical to achieving good spotting success.


Here’s a few simple tricks to keep you ahead of the game. Playing the game well, can make all the difference in removing the spot or ruining the rug!





#1 Hide a white towel – Seconds count, so prepare ahead so you are ready when a spill happens.  Place a white towel under your sofa cushion for quick access to your absorbent towel. The faster you can get up the excess fluid, the further along you will be to successfully removing the spot.

2. Don’t rub!  I’ve seen small spots turn into nightmare huge spots. Never rub a spot – the potential to make it twice as big is huge. Instead blot the spot, working from the outside edges of the spot towards the center of the spot.

3. Have the correct spotter on hand. You have fine wool rugs – why would you use a harsh spotter that was developed for nylon wall to wall rugs?  YOU SHOULDN’T!  Here at Arizona Oriental and Specialty Rug Care we sell a great spotting kit that is WOOL SAFE and carry the WOOLSAFE APPROVED LOGO to ensure our clients that they are spotting with a product that will help them remove the spot and not make it worse or do harm to the fine fibers. ........Here’s Kaitlyn, one of our "ruggies" showing you what the kit looks like. 

Do you need this kit?  No - not if you don't love your fine area rugs BUT if you do THEN YOU NEED THIS KIT! 

After you have given it your best shot, if any residue or spot remains don’t hesitate to call Arizona Oriental and Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ for further cleaning. You won’t want to leave the spot in your rug - time does matter and spots need to be removed before permanent damage to the fiber occurs.
