Some people think cleaning wool rugs will damage them. So they allow dirt and stains to affect the beauty of the otherwise vibrant and intricate patterns. Yet the number one enemy to a wool rug is soil and dirt. Gritty dirt gets into the pile, and as people walk on the rug, damage is being done. The gritty dirt and dust acts like sandpaper, grinding away at the fibers. Improper or postponed spot removal attempts, and moth or insect activity also cause costly damage. Your rugs, if properly cared for will last a lifetime and many generations to come.
Here are some great tips for the care of your wool rugs:
- Thoroughly washing a rug every 2 to 3 years will help prevent permanent damage caused by soils and stains, and prolong it's life and usability.
- Rotate your rugs annually to even out wear and fading.
- Vacuum your rugs thoroughly at least once a week.
- Blot up spills immediately and call a professional to remove difficult stains.
