Wool Care Advice From Your Local Area Rug Cleaning Team

Tackle Stains Quickly

Unlike synthetic fabrics, it’s very challenging to remove a stain from wool. Once the blemish settles, extracting it becomes virtually impossible. Fortunately, however, wool naturally repels debris and spills, so you can prevent permanent damage by addressing accidents immediately.

Take Protective Measures

Most floor-to-floor carpeting is pre-treated with stain repellent. Wool rugs, especially vintage ones, however, usually lack the same protective coating. Extend your rug’s longevity when you treat it with a high-quality acid-dye treatment. Your local carpet cleaning professionals can direct you to the right products and techniques.

For added protection, leave shoes at the door and keep muddy paws off your wool rug. Also, avoid placing your wool rug in high-traffic areas of your home like the entryway and living room. In the future, consider purchasing wool rugs in darker colors, which won’t reveal stains as easily.

Due to the delicate nature of wool, protection remains the best medicine against stains. Additionally, the area rug cleaning experts from The Rug Beater Cleaning Enterprises remove built-up debris and odors from rugs so that they look and smell new.
