Do I Vacuum for Rug Cleaning? Prescott Valley Rug Cleaning

Here in Arizona, there are so many beautiful places to go out and explore. However, when we get home, we often forget to remove shoes and drag dirt across our area rugs.

Hi there, It’s Ruthie here with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ. 

Customers frequently tell us this, but by being proactive about removing dry soil from your rugs, you may prevent a lot of damage to your area rugs.

Dry soil is ground into flat weave rugs, which takes the brunt of the damage. Abrasive dry soil damages their delicate fibers far more rapidly than rugs with a thicker pile.

What vacuum cleaner is best for a flat weave rug? For flat weave area rugs, I always recommend using a canister vacuum or an electric sweeper.

These provide enough suction to extract dry soil from your rug while still being gentle on the fibers. Using an upright vacuum with a beater bar is never a good idea! These are far too harsh for delicate flat weave rugs, causing unneeded damage. It is much better to follow the advice of your local Prescott Valley carpet cleaning experts.


Area Rug Cleaning Advice in Prescott Valley, AZ

When vacuuming across the width of your rug from side to side, be cautious to avoid the fringe and side cords. You can use the upholstery tool or a soft brush attachment if your rug is on the smaller side and you want greater control.

But make in mind that vacuuming isn’t enough to ensure that your rug years for years! Every 1-3 years, have your rugs cleaned by a professional like Arizona Oriental to keep them at their best.

If your area rug appears to be heavily dirty, there’s a reasonable risk it’s suffering from permanent fabric damage. Therefore, it’s critical not to let dry soil build-up on your rugs.

Arizona Oriental is here to help you maintain your prized area rugs in whatever way they require, from cleaning to repairs and at-home recommendations in between professional cleanings.
