Avoid Getting Skunked by a Bad Rug Cleaning Service – Sedona AZ

Avoid Getting Skunked by a Bad Rug Cleaning Service – Sedona AZ

I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and I believe we have all, at one time or another, made a poor decision and had to live with the consequences long after that decision was made.  I know I sure have!

This is exactly what can happen (and has happened) to rug owners who don’t understand that area rugs (especially wool and silk rugs) are completely different creatures from their wall-to-wall nylon carpet.  It’s particularly unfortunate when the floor cleaning guy who cleans tile and grout along with wall to wall carpet daily thinks that he can also clean area rugs.  In this instance, the owner may be setting themselves up for a great disappointment.  An educated cleaner that hasn’t had any proper training with cleaning fine area rugs may end up ruining the rug – dyes can bleed all over the place or the thick pile of a wool area rug may be left wet too long and create musty odors.  I’ve also seen rugs that are misshapen from shrinkage due to improper cleaning and not blocking the rug.  The trouble that people get themselves into and the damage done to area rugs seems endless and is often not reversible.

Educate yourself before you hire the wrong guy so that you know what the difference is between a dedicated, professional rug washing service and the guy who is a Jack of all trades and master of nones.

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