​​​​​​​The Rug Experts Spill: Why You Need to Apply Soil Protection to Your Rugs!


Hi folks! Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ, the best rug cleaning in Northern Arizona!  We don’t just care about area rug cleaning here - we also want to help our clients care for and protect their rugs when the rugs go back home, too!  This is why we offer soil protection to all the rugs that come through our facility.

Why is soil protection important for area rugs?

  1. Soil protectant protects your rug fibers from soiling, just like the wax that protects our car paint!  It helps prevent the abrasive dry soil from working its way down into your rug’s foundation, where it does the most damage.

  2. It provides a little extra time to get spills blotted up before they sink into your rug’s fibers.  Remember, this isn’t bulletproof and you should ALWAYS clean up spills as quickly as possible!

  3. Fibers stay cleaner for longer with soil protection!  This means you can go a little longer between professional cleanings with us here at Arizona Oriental - just as long as nothing major (animal accidents or a spill) happens in the meantime.

  4. Your rug’s fibers will respond better to the next professional cleaning! Soil releases so much easier from fibers that have been protected with a soil protectant.

  5. Soil protectant also makes vacuuming more efficient.  Frequent vacuuming picks up more dry soil, meaning it really doesn’t stand a chance to get down into the foundation of your rug!

As always, the soil protection that we use on area rugs here is WOOLSAFE CERTIFIED!  That’s right, it’s safe to use on all of your wool and silk area rugs, so you don’t have to worry.  Not only that, but it’s also safe for any children and animals you may have in your home, too.

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