The durability and natural beauty of wool make it an excellent choice for homeowners looking for an investment piece that can last for years to come.
However, due to its natural composition, wool is prone to stains and spills and wool rug care is not easy as it seems. In order to keep your rug looking its best, you will need to have professional wool rug cleaning on a regular basis.

Best way to clean a wool rug?
There are several different methods used to clean wool rugs.
Steam cleaning your wool carpet is one of the most common methods for cleaning a shaggy wool rug because it's effective and gentle on delicate fibers. Steam cleaning uses hot water and pressure from a machine to remove dirt from your rug's surface. This method is popular because your rugs be cleaned right in your home and are dry within 3-5 hours. In addition, if there are any stubborn remaining stains, the technician can treat these individually, making your rug clean and visually appealing.
Dry cleaning is another method for cleaning wool rugs but it is not as effective as steam cleaning. The process involves using either a dry compound which is rubbed into the carpet fibers and then vacuumed up. Or, the technician uses a dry cleaner solvent-based product on the fibers. The issue with both these methods is that they don't hardly pick up any dirt in comparison to steam cleaning. Dry cleaning should only be used if the rug is a composite of wool and a delicate fabric like slik, visose, bamboo silk, or other celluse-based fibers.
What happens when a wool rug gets wet?
Wool rugs can get wet for a variety of reasons. Either someone spilled a glass of liquid on the carpet or there was a flood. Getting the wool rug wet in itself isn't an issue. Issues arise in drying the rug. You can image a wool rug being like a big piece of clothing. Once its saturated, how do you get it dry? You don't just leave a wet sweater on the floor and hope it dries. You put it on a clothing line or in the dryer and within a few hours it will dry. The same goes for rugs. If a rug is topically wet, meaning the upper fibers of the rug get wet, like from a spilled glass of water, no need to worry. Either let it dry on its own, dab it with paper towels, or put a fan on it. If you have a flood or you spill a considerable amount of water on a wool rug, it needs to be dried professionally as soon as possible. Most likely it will need to be cleaned completely then hung dry. If you don't call a professional cleaning service to hang dry it, it will stay wet for a long period of time an begin to foster mold. It will then discolor and begin to smell and at this point, it may not be able to restored. Take care of your wool rugs!

How often should you clean wool rugs?
There is no right answer to this question, but there are some things you can do to prolong the life of your rugs.
Wool has more natural oils than other fabrics, which makes it stain resistant and helps prevent shrinkage. It's also good at retaining its shape and structure.
But that means that dirt and dust can build up over time, especially in high-traffic areas like the kitchen or bathroom.
