Clean Wool Area Rugs – Appropriate Cleaning Methods


Area rugs are frequently used as decorating items in homes due to their exquisite beauty and ability to withstand large amounts of traffic and use. Clean wool area rugs are a great addition to any home and have many benefits over rugs made of other materials. Wool is one of the most durable materials used to make rugs and this makes it a very versatile rug to use in home decorating. They are not easily harmed by children, spills, or other familiar hazards. The main source of wool for these rugs is sheep, but it can also come from goats and llamas. Wool rugs are great for protecting carpets and wood floors from damage. These rugs resist dust mites making them the perfect choice for family members with allergies. Other more delicate rugs do not resist fire, water, stains, and mites naturally. They are harder to take care of and keep clean. Clean wool area rugs last longer and retain their natural look much easier than any other type of rug. For this reason they are the preferred rug in many homes.

Many methods exist for cleaning area rugs and how fragile and unique your rug is determines which cleaning methods are appropriate. Vacuum cleaning is the most gentle and easiest way to clean your carpet. It is a recommended cleaning technique for almost all types of rugs and should be performed weekly. Only use the beater bar on the vacuum if it can be adjusted high enough to remove dirt while not harming the fibers of the rug. Steam cleaning is another cleaning option and can be performed in the home. However, this is not a recommended type of Persian rug cleaning. Using a steam cleaner on a Persian rug can result in leftover residue and dirt. These particles will be rough on the rugs fibers and cause it to wear sooner. The rug may not be dried well and can mildew or fall apart over time. Oxy-cleaners and dry powders are commonly used as well but not recommended forms of Persian rug cleaning either. These types of cleaners can harm the carpets color, design, and cause the fibers to ball up. Vacuuming is the only home cleaning method recommended for authentic Persian rugs.

A heavily soiled wool rug needs to be cleaned by reliable rug cleaning services. Reliable does not mean an in home cleaning company. These companies often say they can clean rugs within the home, but are not affective and can do as much damage as doing your own steam cleaning. Home cleaning companies specialize in regular carpet cleaning and may not use the appropriate cleaning solutions and techniques needed to correctly clean your rug.
