Wool rugs are indeed a wonderful investment and make a fine addition to any home or office Naturally fire resistant, they are comfortable, long lasting and beautiful. Spun from the wool of sheep or goats, they are naturally resilient to stains and excellent for high-traffic areas. Made from a renewable source, they give a timeless look to any space that needs decorating.
Wool rugs come in all shapes and sizes, can be contemporary or farmhouse rustic style, and really are resilient. However, even though they are opaque (which means they hide dirt better than other materials) they still have a couple of drawbacks - because they absorb humidity, they do not cope well in damp areas. They are also prone to color fading and shedding. That’s why it’s essential to have them cleaned regularly and restored/repaired whenever necessary.
That way, they will retain their sheen and hopefully last a few decades

Once we’ve brought your wool rug to our facility, these are the following steps we will take:
Inspection - we will look at it closely, observing any color fading, holes etc, to understand exactly what kind of care it needs.
Dusting - A serious dusting will shake away dirt, grime, soil, dust mites and nasty allergens.
Spot and Stain Pre-Treatment - we apply this to deal with stubborn stains such as grease, coffee and pet urine.
Cleaning - we use two different methods at Wool Rug Repair - dry cleaning and deep immersion.
Dry cleaning involves cleaning the rug with green and gentle solutions, rinsing it with very little water then patting it down with soft towels. Deep immersion involves soaking it in a pool of shallow water. Rest assured that however we clean it, the results will be the same - transformational.
Drying - the rug is then taken to a humidity-free, climate controlled room. This lets it dry fast, and ensures mold and mildew don't have a chance to take hold.
Finishing touches - aligning the pile and straightening the fringe are part of this.
And that’s it! We’ll have your rug back in your hands in no time and it’s quite possible you won;t even recognise it!
