Today, wool rugs are available in many colors, patterns and sizes, making them suitable for a variety of interior styles.

One of the main advantages of wool rugs is their durability. Wool is naturally resistant to dirt, stains and wear, making it a good choice for areas with high foot traffic, such as living rooms and hallways. In addition, wool is resilient and retains its shape well, making the rug look good for a long time.

Cleaning the carpet or rug

A rug or wool rug is a beautiful and warm addition to your interior. To ensure that it looks good for as long as possible, it is important to clean it regularly. Here are some helpful tips to properly maintain your carpet or rug:

  • Use a smooth vacuum cleaner nozzle to vacuum the carpet. Retract the bristles to prevent lint and breakage of the yarns. Vacuum not only the top, but also the bottom of the rug regularly.
  • Pay attention to the material of the carpet. A wool carpet needs different treatment than one made of synthetic materials, for example. Wool tends to get fluffy, so keep this in mind when choosing a carpet. Loose bindings fluff faster than tight bindings.
  • If there is a stain on the carpet, make a mixture of about 10% natural vinegar and 90% cold water. Gently dab this mixture on the stain with a clean cloth or sturdy sponge. Be careful not to rub or scrub too hard or you will only make the stain worse.
  • Be careful not to make the cloth or sponge too wet. This may cause the stain to soak further into the carpet and only make it more difficult to get it out. Squeeze any excess moisture from the cloth or sponge before applying it to the stain.

Clean the carpet regularly with a carpet cleaner. You can buy a special carpet cleaner for this purpose, but there are also household remedies you can use, such as baking soda and vinegar. Mix a little baking soda with warm water and apply it to the carpet. Let it soak for a few hours and then vacuum it up. For stubborn stains, you can use vinegar instead of baking soda. Mix a little vinegar with warm water and apply it to the stain. Let it soak for a few minutes and then pat dry with a clean cloth or sponge.
