Do you have a wool rug, but are worried about how to clean it? Wool rugs are not CHEAP and the wrong information on how to clean it can ruin the rug. The three things you need to know how to care for a wool rug:
First, according to “www.rugknots.com,” “Over vacuuming will pull the natural fibers out of the rug.” It’s recommended you only vacuum your wool rug ONLY twice a month. In addition, the type vacuum you use is the most important part. Purchase a vacuum that the suction is adjustable, no beater bar or one you can run without the beater bar and has a handle brush add-on.
Secondly, the only way you can spot clean is if you get to the accident immediately. You only have about 15 minutes till the spot settles in and becomes a stain. At that point, you’ll need to call a professional for a deep clean.
Lastly, deep cleaning is only recommended every 1-2 years depending on the volume of traffic, unless a spot has turned into a stain from an accident. There’s no question that hiring a professional to clean a natural fiber rug will be expensive, but if you try to do it yourself, you may end up ruining your wool rug.
