Wool Rugs Cleaning Instructions

Wool rugs will last for many years when properly cared for. To protect your investment and ensure the lasting beauty of your wool rugs, it’s important to keep them clean. Over time, the build-up of dirt, oils, air pollution and other debris can affect the appearance of your carpets, making them seem dull and dirty.


Vacuum wool mats at least once a week to remove dirt, debris, animal hair and dust. Make sure the hollow rod is turned on and move over the surface of the carpet fibers to vibrate them easily. If the engine of your vacuum seems to work too hard, you may need to raise the whisk bar. Scoop or vacuum dry particles and just wet stains with a dry, absorbent cloth as soon as a spill has occurred.

Apply cold water if the stain does not disappear gently so as not to over wet the wool mat. If necessary, use a mild detergent or a dry stain cleaner to remove stubborn stains. Apply a dry foam mat cleaner to wash the wool carpet fibers properly without a lot of moisture. The foam works its way into the fibers to give the mat a deep clean. Vacuum the foam from the carpet when it has dried properly. Do this every or every two years, depending on the degree of pedestrian traffic.
