The real secret to cleaning wool rugs – Don’t do it yourself.

Nov 2nd 2015 at 9:11 PM

If you’re a woollen rug owner, you are probably the proud possessor of a truly fabulous, very difficult to clean rug. It’s not your fault, and it’s not the rug’s fault. You’ll be pleased to know that you’re cleaning efforts actually are very helpful, and do deal with a lot of basic cleaning needs, but the bottom line with wool is that it must be professionally cleaned at some point or other.

The big deal about wool, and what makes it so comfortable, is fibers. Millions of them. Every single one of these fibers acts as a dust or grit collector. The next stage involves these dust and grit collections getting very tangled. This isn’t actually how the La Brea Tar Pits got started, but it’s close enough for most rug owners.

The result, of course, is a real mess. This mess, in fact, can’t be cleaned at home. This is also the real problem with wool rugs. At a certain point in time the message for wool rug owners is to face the inevitable and get the rugs professionally cleaned.

Now the good news – Professional rug cleaning is a very good option, and it really does also improve the longevity of the rug. To illustrate this point, there’s a company in LA called Holland Rug Care which does what you’d call a full formal cleaning job with these rugs. This company is the go-to rug cleaning place in LA, so as you might have guessed, they’re something special. If you want Oriental rug cleaning in Hollywood, Persian rug cleaning in Malibu, or wool rug cleaning in Bel Air, this is where it happens.

One look at their cleaning process will tell you “Don’t try this at home”. This is actually isn’t rocket science, but it looks like it. They do absolutely everything. They do full immersions, and even PH balance testing. This isn’t the sort of stuff you can do yourself.

For more information and some reassurance about the value of professional rug cleaning, visit their website here at If you’re in LA, you can even use these services yourself. Give them a call or contact them online.
