Why Do We "WASH" Rugs? Is That Safe For Your Valuable Wool Rug?
Hand woven wool rugs should be gently washed- the way they have been for centuries- never cleaned on your home's floor with regular carpet cleaning equipment. High temperature steam cleaning is great for synthetic carpets like nylon, but it can be harmful for your wool rugs. In hot water, wool will release dyes that create those beautiful and intricate patterns in your rugs. That means bleeding and dye migration- not a pretty sight. And in some cases, impossible to correct. Another problem with hot water cleaning is that shrinking will most certainly occur. Have you ever seen a wool sweater shrink? Did you ever wear it again? Shrinking will change the shape of your rug as well as how it lays out. It will simply never be the same. So as a rule: NEVER have your fine woven rugs cleaned with high heat or steam cleaning processes!
For centuries, rugs have been washed in rivers. Yes- that's right. Water would flow through the carpet and thoroughly rinse out soil and debris. So if this has worked for thousands of years, why don't we still do it that way? Well, don't worry, we won't dunk your rug in Boulder Creek, the Platte River or the St. Vrain! However, our modern fine rug washing process IS very similar in how we wash your rug. All the cool water in the world will not harm a wool rug. It flushes it out and extends it's life. You will love its luster and beauty after a good washing. And your home will be that much more luxurious when your rug is returned to you in the prestine state that it's meant to be in!
