How Often Should Wool Rugs Be Cleaned in Sedona?


Hi, I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ and How often wool rugs should be cleaned is a popular question around here.

Wool does an outstanding job of hiding a lot of dirt, as a general rule. There is a dense pile on most wool rugs that helps the soil squirm right to the rug’s bottom, where it quickly spreads out. Frequent vacuuming helps enormously, but deep, thorough, proper cleaning is not a replacement.

Here you can learn a little more about when you have wool rugs cleaned by a Sedona area rug cleaner.


How Often to have Area Rug Cleaner Clean Rugs

Returning to how often wool rugs should be washed every two to three years is the general rule of thumb.

Of course, this can differ depending on such factors as pet urine/fecal incidents or food spills, etc.

Some spots need to be removed professionally as soon as possible to prevent damage to the fiber and base. Another tip is to be careful of the traffic soil that grows.

If your rug is in a high traffic area and you see that it looks dingy because of this traffic, then the rug tells you it can not take any more build-up, and it’s time to clean it up.

I would share with you from experience that if a rug is ignored and soil build-up will accumulate too much, the rug fibers have less chance of reacting entirely to cleaning, and you can end up with permanent damage to the fabric.

Your rug is experiencing “dry soil” when you see this; what is happening, the dry soil is microscopically grinding away at the fibers and doing permanent, irreversible harm.

Annual cleanings can include rugs in high-traffic areas. Rugs need less cleaning in low-traffic areas such as a guest room and can last three years until you need to call Arizona Oriental for skilled rug cleaning.

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