What to Know About Rug Cleaning in Prescott for Mud


Hi there! It’s Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care coming from Prescott, AZ.

Pets can drag mud into the home accidently. Should this get onto your rug, you can face a struggle to get them cleaned properly, particularly if you try to do this yourself.

Here you can find more information on cleaning wet and dry mud before you need to call your local Prescott area rug cleaning specialist.


Wool Fibers are Fragile

Wool is considered to last much longer than other fabrics, but remember it is also sensitive and caution must always be taken when trying to clean the area.


Wait to Clean Mud from Your Area Rugs

There is a high possibility that for mud, when the mud is already damp, attempts to clean will only spread the mud wider and deeper into the pile. Wait until it is dry in order to avoid this.

Gently vacuum up the dried clumps when the mud is dry, extracting as much as possible before beginning spot cleaning. Cleaners will damage wool fibers and even repair the stain, rendering it permanent, unless they are wool-proof. Always ensure that your wool spot treatment is safe to use.

By rubbing too hard, it’s simple to fuzz-out wool fibers. Blot the area rather than rub and scrub.


Check for Residue and Dye Bleeding

More soil is attracted by residue on your rugs. With frequent rinsing, detergents must be flushed from the fibers. First, evaluate in an inconspicuous area to make sure colors are stable and won’t bleed.

To test, take a white cloth, and damp it with your cleaning solution. test each of the colors separately. Stop Spot treatments if you see color on the cloth and call your area rug cleaning specialist.


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