Tips on Keeping Your Wool Rugs Clean
Vacuum the wool rug on a regular basis. Keeping the dust and dirt off a wool rug is actually very important. Dust and dirt can damage the fibers leading to a breakdown of the rug. When vacuuming the wool rug you don’t want to use a close setting if you have a brush vacuum. Agitation is not good for the rug. Don’t forget to flip the rug over and vacuum the backside. Dirt and dust can make their way through the rug and sit on the bottom.
Stains and Spills. It’s important to clean up spills quickly. To do this use cold water and a soft detergent. Never use bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and powdered cleaners. Dab the spill or stain with a rag dipped in cold water and detergent. Never scrub, this damages the fibers of a wool rug very easily.
