Tips on Prolonging the Life of Your Wool Rugs: Area Rug and Carpet Cleaning, Victoria BC

Some people think cleaning wool rugs will harm them.  So they allow dirt and stains to obscure the otherwise vibrant and intricate patterns. Yet the number one enemy to a wool rug is soil.  Gritty dirt gets into the pile, and as people walk on the rug, damage is being done. The gritty soil acts like sandpaper, grinding away at the fibers.  Improper or delayed spot removal attempts, and moth or insect activity also cause expensive damage.   Your rugs, if properly cared for will last a lifetime and many generations to come.


  • Thoroughly washing a rug every 2 to 3 years will help prevent permanent damage caused by soils and stains, and prolong it's life and   usability.
  • Rotate your rugs annually to even out wear and fading.
  •  Vacuum your rugs thoroughly at least once a week. 
  • Blot up spills immediately and call a professional to remove difficult stains.
