A Closer Look At Persian Wool Rugs
Persian wool rugs are made from high-quality wool fibers coated in natural wax. They can last for generations if properly cared for. However, the natural fibers are delicate and must be cleaned carefully. We've included a quick guide below so you can protect your investment:
Shake out the rug and the pad to loosen deeply embedded dirt. If possible, beat the rug with a broom, tennis racket, or wooden spoon.
Lay the rug outside, on a tarp, with the backing facing up. Vacuum it before turning the rug the right way up and vacuuming again. If you don’t have a good outside spot, use any indoor space that will not have moisture or otherwise damage the rug.
Mix a gentle wool detergent with a large bucket of water and lightly scrub the rug with a sponge. “Rinse” cleaned sections with a clean sponge. Do not oversaturate the wool with water.
Blot the moisture with clean old towels as much as possible and then allow the rug to dry completely before putting it back on the pad. Hanging or elevating it will work best for drying.
Persian wool rugs are masterpieces that will work well in almost any home. You can use a color picker tool to find ideal colors to add to your home, which will help you spot the best rug for your existing décor.
The only reason to avoid Persian wool rugs would be if you cannot keep them maintained. The cleaning instructions above will help you remove dirt and grime, but a deeper cleaning may be required every once in a while.
For spills, be sure to blot up immediately and clean with a gentle detergent designed for wool.
If you don’t have a low-traffic area for your rug or otherwise won’t be able to keep it clean, consider a synthetic Oriental rug instead.
