Washing & Repair
Take It Easy
While wool rugs can stand up to a fair amount of brushing, the roller brushes used in most vacuum cleaners can cause incremental damage to wool fibers over time. Instead, opt for a hand brush or use your vacuum roller brush only on the highest floor level setting. This can remove surface dust and lint while leaving deeper fibers untouched and undamaged.
Turn Things Upside Down
Most wool area rugs can be vacuumed on the reverse side to remove even more dust and grime from all areas of these floor coverings. This process can also provide you with added information on the current condition of your area rugs, allowing you to take prompt action at the first sign of excessive wear and tear.
Avoid Commercial Cleaning Solutions
The harsh chemicals often included in commercially available rug cleaners can damage or fade the dyes used to adorn your wool area rugs. Investing in occasional professional cleanings from the experts at Infinity Rug Care can ensure that your rugs stay beautiful and last longer even with daily use.
Keep Things Dry
Wool absorbs water efficiently, which can present serious problems after a large-scale spill. Blotting away water with clean white towels can help to prevent damage caused by prolonged exposure to liquids and can speed the drying process. If a liquid other than water has been spilled on your area rug, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment for a full cleaning with Infinity Rug Care. Our expert technicians can provide your wool rug with the tender loving care necessary to restore its original beauty.
