When Will My Area Rug Be Ready to Come Back Home? – Sedona AZ

When Will My Area Rug Be Ready to Come Back Home? – Sedona AZ

One of the questions that our clients at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care ask most often is “How long does it take and when can I pick up my rug?”  A lot of people tend to assume that their area rug will be ready for them in a few days, but that’s just not the case!  After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day.  Most area rugs are with us here at our rug washing facility between 3 to 4 weeks.


At Arizona Oriental, we want to make sure that we provide the best service to ALL of our clients and their area rugs, whether they have expensive Antique Persian and Oriental rugs or just an inexpensive synthetic rug that they really like.  Our process looks like this:

STEP 1: We thoroughly inspect each area rug so that we know the rug’s EXACT CONDITION before we begin cleaning.  We test the dyes to see if they are stable or if we need to do a treatment to help stabilize them for the washing.  A UV Inspection is also performed to see if there are any urine deposits that need to be addressed.
STEP 2: After getting approval from our client, we dust the rugs by using a special dusting machine to gently shake loose the dry soil trapped deep in the rug’s fibers.  Then we flip the rug over and vacuum the top of it.
STEP 3: Each and every rug gets washed BY ITSELF with CUSTOM-FORMULATED CLEANING SOLUTIONS MATCHED TO THAT RUG!  Every rug gets exactly what it needs.  Since we clean one rug at a time, you don’t have to worry about any cross-contamination with urine, soil, colors, etc. from other area rugs.
STEP 4: Drying rugs quickly is one of the MOST IMPORTANT steps to ensure the best results from cleaning.  Quick and aggressive drying is important in preventing dye migration problems post-cleaning./
STEP 5: Once the rugs are dry, a final, post-cleaning inspection is done.  We double-check that there isn’t anything else the rug needs before going back home to our clients.

Arizona Oriental’s extensive and thorough process is designed to be the best way to properly clean area rugs, so it makes sense why rugs can’t be returned in just a few days.  It’s always best to plan ahead when having your rugs cleaned, especially if you need them for a specific date. In some cases, we can perform a rush cleaning for an additional charge, depending on our client’s needs.

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