At-Home Cleanings Require Vacuuming Wool Rugs

At-Home Cleanings with Vacuuming Wool Rugs

Treat your wool rug as you would treat regular carpeting and vacuum it regularly. In the first few years, understand that your woolen rug may shed extra fibers leftover from weaving. The extra fibers give the rug a soft, fuzzy look and should be dealt with regularly. To keep your rug looking its best, you can turn a wool rug upside down and vacuum the back as well. Other tips for at-home cleaning of wool rugs include:

  • The vacuum height should be set to high so that the rotating brush can't excessively agitate the rug. If the rug is agitated too much, it will damage the wool fibers and lead to pilling - or even shrinkage.
  • The brushes on the beater bar should gently touch the rug during vacuuming. Brushing will help in effectively removing deep-down dirt, but it won't agitate the fibers too much.
  • For more effective suction, keep the vacuum bag or canister less than half-full.
  • Move the vacuum in a 'V' path instead of back and forth, in a straight line. Just alternate the direction of the vacuum's path, since it prevents the soft fibers from being crushed.
Professional Helping to Clean Wool Rugs

Why You Need Professional Help to Clean Wool Rugs

Along with regular vacuuming sessions, professional cleaning at least once a year will give it a brand-new appearance, and it will prolong the life of your wool rug.

Wool tends to absorb more water than synthetic fibers, making them a challenge to dry after being washed. Your wool area rug may be heavy and difficult to maneuver when wet. That is why you should bring in professional help. Additionally, some over-the-counter carpet cleaners contain too much alkaline for proper handling of wool fibers and might damage your rug.

Carpet manufacturers recommend that you take your wool carpet for professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months; you may need to have it cleaned more often if you have indoor pets, have children who tend to spill sticky substances on the carpet, or if there's any oil or dirt being tracked into the house.
