Wool Carpet Cleaning Information

29 Sep, 2011

A simple maintenance programme including regular, interim and periodic cleaning will keep your wool carpet looking as good as the day it was installed!

Regular Maintenance

The simplest and most frequent maintenance involves vacuuming and spot removal, as well as preventative measures.


Regular and thorough vacuuming once a week (more often in heavy traffic areas) is an economical and effective way to remove soil and dirt particles before they become embedded into the pile of the carpet.

For best results, empty your vacuum bag when half full.

  • An upright vacuum with a beater bar/brush is best for cut pile carpet.
  • A suction-only vacuum is recommended for loop pile Berber carpet to prevent excessive fuzzing.

Spot & Stain Removal

With spot and stain removal, speed is of the essence.

  • Blot up liquids with paper towel or absorbent cloth. Scoop up solids with the end of a knife or spoon.
  • Treat the stain or spot with WoolClean Spot Remover 1 or Dry Spot Remover 2.
  • Use a light, colourfast cotton cloth for the treatment of spots.
  • Always work from the outer edge towards the centre to prevent spreading. Use only small quantities of spot removal agent. It’s a good idea to replace the cotton cloth as soon as it is soiled.
  • Carefully rinse the area with clean water and a sponge after having cleaned it.
  • Do not soak the carpet pile.
  • Afterwards, blot as dry as possible with clean towel.
  • If necessary, always brush cut pile carpets in the direction of the pile.
  • Do not use household cleaners such as soft soap, neutral soap, ammonia solution, turpentine, benzine or spot removal agents which are only recommended for textiles.

Preventative Measures

  • Place absorbent mats at entrances to your home; change or wash when they become dirty.
  • Regularly change filters in your heating and air conditioning systems.
  • Periodically clean traffic lanes and areas in front of frequently used chairs with a suitable cleaning agent such as WoolClean Clean&Fresh.
  • Do not apply stain repellent treatments that contain any silicone, because they tend to accelerate carpet soiling. Note: some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.

Periodic Maintenance

Thorough cleaning is required periodically to remove the deepest soil. There are many deep cleaning methods you can use to ensure the beauty and life of a wool carpet or rug. When having your wool carpet professionally cleaned, use a reputable company and check references.
