There are untrained companies and employees out there looking to clean your rugs. Sometimes they will clean your rugs in your home and other times they will pick them up to clean elsewhere. Be careful as they can ruin your rugs. Most of them have little to no experience in properly cleaning wool or Oriental and Persian rugs, not to mention they’re not certified. Also, no one can wash a wool rug properly at your house. It needs a full-immersion washing. But, some of these companies will pick-up your rug and steam clean it in private. This process can damage your rug and should only be performed on synthetic wall-to-wall nylon carpeting. Wool rugs should never be cleaned with hot water nor highly alkaline cleaners that are used for carpets. Wool is actually only supposed to be cleaned with “Wool Safe Approved” cleaners. All our cleaning detergents are “Wool Safe Approved.”
