Vibrant.  Elegant.  Beautiful.  What is being described?  Wool area rugs.  These essential elements to interior design complete the room.  Similar to hanging a wonderful painting on a bare wall, placing a unique area rug on a hard surface floor transforms the space; turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.   No doubt that is why they continue to be favorites among discerning homeowners and interior designers alike.

Wool area rugs come in a wide variety of types and styles.  There are traditional hand woven oriental rugs and modern machine woven rugs.  Some rugs are machine tufted or they could be hand tufted.  They can be cut pile or loop pile. Using a mix of cut and loop piles in the same rug results in a rich textured effect.  Custom rugs can also be produced using inlays of various colors.  Talented craftspeople, hand carving intricate designs into the wool, can create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Do you own one of these masterpieces?  If so, how can you properly care for it?  Opinions abound regarding wool rug cleaning, but there are basics steps you can take to prolong the useful life of your rug.

The first step is regular vacuuming.  This will greatly reduce the amount of damage caused by dust and grit. However, care must be taken to prevent damaging the wool fiber.  On delicate rugs, suction only vacuum cleaners are recommended to reduce possible fuzzing or other damage.

If you have a spill, gently scrape up any portion that you can and then blot immediately with an absorbent white towel.  Never rub or scrub as this can permanently damage the rug.  If you feel the spot needs further treatment, consult with a company that specializes in wool rug cleaning before proceeding.

Additionally, periodic, professional wool rug cleaning is vital.  Since every rug is unique, wool rug cleaning performed should be most the suitable method for the individual rug’s age, soil condition, type of dyes and construction.
