Taking Care of a Wool Rug

The cleaners that might work just fine for rugs or carpets made of synthetic fibers can actually cause damage to your wool rug. Natural fiber rugs are more sensitive to harsh chemicals, and to clean them safely and completely will require the right green-cleaning agents. Chemicals can also bleach out coloring or change colors completely, and out-of-a-can-cleaners can form alkaline residues that can be harmful not only to the carpet, but to the entire family.

Because Smart Choice can provide the people, equipment, and knowledge for expert wool rug cleaning, you need have no worries when placing your rug in our care. While it is possible to rent carpet cleaning equipment, this can actually be detrimental to your wool area rug. Too much water is generally left in the carpet, not only increasing the time before the carpet or rug can be used, but the excess water also supports the growth of mold or mildew. Dry powders can also present a problem, as they can be difficult to remove from the pile, increasing the chance of allergic reactions.
