Why Professional Cleaning Beats Self-Cleaning Your Area Rug – Sedona AZ

Why Professional Cleaning Beats Self-Cleaning Your Area Rug – Sedona AZ

So you’re thinking that renting a Rug Doctor from the supermarket to clean your area rug will save you time and money.  THINK AGAIN!

Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here and I know most people don’t really think too much about what they don’t understand about area rugs.  Proper care for an area rug isn’t something that most people truly understand – which is fine!  If you have a whole lot of luck on your side, you’ll be successful in cleaning your own area rug without creating any problems.

But before you take that leap of faith, let’s take a look at the whole picture.

Here are just a few of the possibilities that can happen with a Rug Doctor:

  • Color bleeding due to unstable dyes in your area rug.
  • Over-wetting the rug and not being able to completely extract all the water due to the low-powered machine leading to musty odors and even mold growth.
  • Animal urine deposits won’t be completely removed from your rug and the added moisture may even cause them to become even smellier than they were originally!
  • Foundation fibers may shrink and cause the rug to become misshapen or ripple.
  • Fibers may even mat down and flatten out, causing the rug to “ugly out” and not look like it was even cleaned at all!

Keep in mind, too, that the cleaning products that come with the Rug Doctor are NOT designed to clean wool and silk fibers!  Cleaning these delicate fibers with things that are not WOOLSAFE CERTIFIED can lead to a lot of fiber damage, along with all the things listed above.

THE NUMBER ONE REASON PROFESSIONAL RUG CLEANING BEATS SELF-CLEANING? You won’t be able to get it anywhere near as clean on your own as we can in our rug washing facility!  We have the right tools and cleaning solutions needed to clean fine wool and silk area rugs.  We also have the training, certification, and knowledge about the proper way to clean area rugs.

Instead of renting a dirty Rug Doctor machine and chance ruining your area rugs, give Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care a call today!  We will get your area rug sparkling clean and save you all the hassle and work involved with trying to do it yourself!

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