What’s Best for Prescott Rug Cleaning. Shoes or Barefoot?


Hi there folks, it’s Ruthie here from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ.

Over the last few decades, we have cleaned no end of area rugs. You can find all kinds of materials from wool, silk, cellulosic fibers, and synthetics. We’ve seen it and cleaned it. 

Like your carpets, every rug requires basic care, from your fine Persian or Oriental to the handwoven Navajo treasures to the basic machine-made varieties you can find in any brick and mortar store.

We often get asked what is the best for rugs at home to make sure Prescott, AZ area rug cleaning goes without a hitch. Here you can find out the answer.


Prescott Area Rug Cleaners Recommends Clean Shoes

With shoes, Arizona Oriental advises that if you like to wear shoes around the house, it would be best to have a pair at your front door for indoor use only. 

So, kick shoes which have crossed streets, shopping, and parking lots full of germs, tar, and oil in parking lots.

Staying on top of this practice is likely to maintain everything on the floor of your home for an extended period. 

Of course, that translates into the need to have them cleaned professionally by Arizona Oriental less often.  By doing so, you’ll save your floors, area carpets, and you will save money.


Barefoot in Prescott, AZ

Readers who prefer to go without shoes and let their feet be unrestricted, don’t forget we all produce oils from the body. 

Such natural body oils can be a significant concern for area carpets, without mention of all the lotions we apply. 

We at Arizona Oriental see plenty of such stains on area rugs found in bedrooms and bathrooms. 

Wearing a pair of socks on the feet is a kind gesture towards area rugs.  This also protects the carpet fibers and prolongs the time between professional carpet cleaning.

As you can see, there are reasons to wear either slippers or socks. So, shoes or bare feet don’t stand over either.
