What Grandma May Have Never Told You about Area Rugs – Sedona AZ

What Grandma May Have Never Told You about Area Rugs – Sedona AZ

We at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care see a lot of beautiful rugs in our rug washing facility.  Many of the most highly regarded rugs are the good ol’ rugs that could definitely share more than a story or two if they could only speak.

Rugs were meant to last many, many years on our floors and even handed down from generation to generation.  With proper care, rugs will last for decades.

So what is it that Grandma may have never told you?  Grandma understood how critical it was to remove dry soil from area rugs.  Do you remember those old cowboy flicks that showed a woman beating a rug over a clothes line?  This is the first, and arguably most important, step in proper rug care. Grandma really knew what she was doing!

Grandma was knocking out the dry soil, sand and little stones and other debris that was tracked in on cowboy boots.  Dry soil is the number one cause of wear and tear in area rugs.  Just like sandpaper, dry soil grinds against your delicate rug fibers until the rug is thread bare!  By knowing this, Grandma stayed one step ahead, giving her rugs a good beating regularly.

Arizona Oriental in Prescott AZ has evolved the wooden rug beaters to modern day dusters so we can ensure maximum dry soil removal.  Yet another reason why you don’t want your rugs cleaned in your home where dusting just isn’t an option.  By having us professionally clean your rugs, you’ll 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!
