Handmade vintage wool rugs are expensive, but they are a great addition to any home. Not only do they look great and feel soft, but they are also very strong and last a long time. But you have to give them the right kind of care.
We always say that delicate jobs like cleaning wool rugs should be done by professionals. But we know that not everyone’s budget can keep up with these kinds of costs. So, we don’t blame you if you want to clean your Vintage Moroccan Berber Rug. Just make sure you follow the steps below so you don’t damage it. Also, cleaning your rug regularly isn’t the only way to make sure it stays as good as new for as long as possible.
How to Properly Clean Your Handmade Wool Vintage Rugs At Home
If your rug gets stained, you should clean it right away so that the stain doesn’t become part of the rug. But I’ll say more about that in a bit.
In addition to getting rid of stains, you should wash your carpet thoroughly once or twice a year. This is what you do:
First, you should get all the supplies and tools you’ll need. These can be different depending on the size, type, and amount of dirt on your rug.
If you use a mild soap and a lot of water, you can clean wool rugs pretty well. First, use a soft brush to make sure you get all the dirt out of the Blush Vintage Rug, and then rinse it well. If you let it dry for a day, it will be like new.
Washing the Carpet
We’ve already talked about how easy it is to clean a wool rug. You don’t need fancy cleaning products or chemicals that could hurt you. Instead, all it takes to make your rug shine again is a lot of soap and water.
Spread out your carpet on a flat, hard surface. Most of the time, this is done in the backyard or on the driveway. But you can do it pretty much anywhere that is convenient for you. The only thing that matters is that the place where you do it is also clean.
Drying the Carpet
After you clean the carpet, hang it outside to dry (off your porch, for example). And if you can’t find a way to hang it, lay it flat on the floor or a table. To keep mold from growing, however, make sure to put something under the rug to lift it off the ground. You can also turn it over every so often so that it dries evenly.
