Wool is considered to endure significantly longer than other textiles, but keep in mind that it is very delicate, and extreme consideration should be exercised when cleaning your area rug, no matter how durable you think it is.


Don’t Clean Mud Form Area Rugs When Wet

When dealing with mud, there is a significant likelihood that attempts to clean will merely spread the mud farther and deeper into the pile, especially if the mud is already damp. To avoid this, wait until the surface is completely dry.

When the mud has dried, gently vacuum up the dried clumps, extracting as much as you can before commencing the spot cleaning process. a. Unless the cleaners are wool-proof, they will damage the wool fibers and may even heal the stain, making it permanently stained. Always double-check that the wool spot treatment you're using is safe to use.

Wool fibers can easily be fuzzed-out by rubbing them too vigorously in one direction. Instead of rubbing and scrubbing the area, blot it.


Check for Residue and Bleeding

Residue on your rugs attracts more soil. Detergents must be expelled from the fibers with continuous rinsing. First, test in a hidden location to ensure that the colors are steady and won't bleed.

To do a test, dampen a white cloth with your cleaning solution. Each color should be tested separately. If you see color on the material, stop using spot treatments and contact a rug cleaning professional in your region.

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