What Grandma Knew About Rugs That You Might Not Know – Prescott AZ

At Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care we encounter lots of beautiful rugs in our rug washing facility. Some of our most highly regarded are the good ol rugs that could share more than a story or two if they could talk.

Rugs were meant to last many, many years, and handed down from generation to generation. If rugs are properly cared for, rugs will last for decades.

So what is it that Grandma knew that you might not know?  Grandma understood just how critical it was to remove dry soil. Do you remember the old cowboy flicks where the woman is beating the rug over a clothes line/ This is the first step and arguably the most important step in rug care.

What Grandma was doing was knocking out the dry soil such as sand and little stones and debris tracked in on the cowboy boots. Dry soil is the number 1 cause of wear and tear. Just like sandpaper, dry soil will grind against your delicate rug fibers until the rug is thread bare! Grandma knew all of this and she stayed one step ahead by a good rug beating regularly.

At Arizona Oriental we’ve evolved from the wooden rug beaters to modern day dusters to ensure maximum dry soil removal. This is one more reason you do not want your rugs cleaned in your home where dusting is not an option. Have us professionally clean your rugs and see and enjoy the difference.  

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