What You Should Know About the Benefits of Soil Protection on Area Rugs! – Prescott Valley AZ

What You Should Know About the Benefits of Soil Protection on Area Rugs! – Prescott Valley AZ

Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott Valley once again.  Along with providing professional, thorough cleaning of area rugs for folks here in Northern Arizona, one of our goals is to help our clients preserve their area rugs for the years to come.  So I wanted to take a moment today to talk about one of the services we offer to help preserve our client’s area rugs – soil protection!

I’ve talked before about how abrasive and damaging dry soil is to our area rugs.  Allowing dry soil to build up at the base of rug fibers is a recipe for disaster as sandpaper-like dry soil grinds away at delicate wool and silk fibers.  So what does soil protectant do for your fibers?  Help them resist soiling!

I like to liken soil protectant to the wax over the paint on our cars.  Wax keeps all of the dirt and dust of the outside world from doing damage and chipping away at our car’s paint.  Soil protectant does the same thing and helps to protect your rug fibers from the dry soil that lands on your rug.

What are some of the benefits of soil protectant on area rugs?

  1. Gives you more reaction time when something spills on your rug.  Now, our soil protectant certainly isn’t bullet proof and you should ALWAYS blot up spills as quickly as possible to prevent permanent staining, but it does allow you a little more time to grab a stack of paper towels or cotton cloths.
  2. Rug fibers stay cleaner longer.  Soil protectant helps your rug resist soiling and with regular vacuuming, your fibers will appear nice and clean longer than non-protected fibers.
  3. Improves vacuuming & makes professional cleaning easier next time!  Soil releases from rug fibers more easily when the fibers have been protected.  It also helps to keep dry soil from working its way down in between the fibers, allowing it to pick up more dry soil.

We always offer our clients soil protectant for their rugs for these reasons.  Our soil protectant is a CERTIFIED WOOLSAFE PRODUCT, so you don’t have anything to worry about!  It’s also safe for kids and pets once it’s dry, so, again, no need to worry.

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