Wool Rug Care
It is more than possible to keep your beautiful wool rugs soft and clean for their entire lifetime. A good quality wool carpet can last a lifetime while a synthetic one endures maybe 10 years or so. So while they’re cheap, owning a synthetic rug turns out to be quite expensive in the end, as you have to replace it sooner than you thought.
Vacuuming regularly Keeps a Rug in Good Nick
Wool is the perfect material for rugs, providing luxurious softness and exquisite colors. They’re durable and more than capable of coping in high foot traffic areas. Probably the best way to keep your wool rug in good nick is to try and vacuum it gently but regularly to get rid of dirt that can become ingrained.
Treating stains on a wool carpet is another important aspect of caring for your rug. With any stain, the quicker you respond to a spill on a wool rug the better. This is because you can have bleeding – where the colors of the rug run into each other. This can be disastrous, and any spill needs to be attended to immediately.
Special, Immediate Attention Required
Just like with oriental-, antique-, silk- or Persian rugs, spills and stains should be given immediate attention as this prevents long-term damage. Most essential is the right cleaning methods and products.
Many people have spilled ink over their rugs, their kids have left marker pen residues on them and people have tramped mud onto the rug. Vacuuming ad stain treatment way not work for you, and then special attention by experienced professionals will be required.
