Wool rugs and pets can be a bad combination.

July 29, 2009

When dealing with a wool rug, you are dealing with a natural fiber as opposed to man-made fiber like nylon. Wool rugs and carpets can be great for many thing. It’s fire resistant properties along with great durability makes it a great choice for a home.
Unfortunately they also require special attention when cleaning to avoid shrinkage or even fiber loss. This can make it difficult to use aggressive methods to get out some tough spots like the kind our pets leave behind. Speed is always a factor in getting theses spots out and unfortunately sometimes that is not enough. Often time when we pick up area rugs we find it was not the first or only “accident”.
The best thing is to get it protected with a wool carpet protector this will act as a temporary barrier to give you a little extra time to clean an “accident” up, before it penetrates the fibers and cause permanent stains.
