Wool Rug Cleaning

When only the finest will do – Rely on Oriental Rug Care.

We are a team of professional rug cleaning technicians that appreciate the artistry of hand-woven wool rugs. We are dedicated to providing meticulous rug cleaning services to ensure the colours and patterns of your rug are vivid and striking.

Wool is a remarkable material for home furnishings, particularly a woven rug. While they are often marketed as practically indestructible, wool rugs need to be cleaned and maintained using precise techniques to ensure their longevity.

Do You Just Clean The Surface Of The Rug?

We have mastered the art and science of full immersion cleaning. Using traditional hand washing techniques that have been used throughout the Middle East for centuries, the technicians can provide a deep and thorough clean to every fibre of your rug. Additionally, we use advanced detergents that safely remove all contaminants.

We have created our state of the art cleaning facility with equipment that allows us to perform full immersion cleaning on even the largest wool rug. Our
drying room has powerful dryers and dehumidifiers that allow us to extract moisture quickly to eliminate the “manky” odour associated with a slowly dryed
rug. We use no masking agents or fragrances to hide a poorly done job. All you get is the smell of clean wool.

How Often Should I Clean My Wool Rug?

Even though they are truly works of art crafted by master artisans in East Asia or the Subcontinent, we often take our rugs for granted. Sure, you may vacuum them carefully ensuring that the fringes are not aggressively agitated by the beaters of your machine. But how often do you get down and actually inspect the integrity of the fibres and analyse the condition of the fringes?

At Oriental Rug Care we are advocates for state of the art cleaning practices. Even if your rug does not look offensively dirty, you may notice that the colours are slowly starting to appear duller and the fringes are starting to look a bit tattered.

Don't take chances – Choose the professionals!

Dust, silica and skin particles slowly seep down through the wool fibres into the wool or cotton base. When you walk on your rug these particles slowly cause fibre wear that will gradually destroy the integrity of your rug.

Oriental Rug Care is committed to providing the highest standard of hassle-free rug cleaning in Sydney. Using innovative rug cleaning solutions from WoolSafe, Oriental Rug Care provides safe and thorough rug washing services for rare, antique, valuable and heritage wool rugs.

The Benefits Of Cleaning Your Wool Rug

Wool rugs add a unique warmth and comfort to any room. Whether your rug is a family heirloom that is used to soften your living room or a new addition that you look forward to handing on to your children, your wool rug will benefit from being professionally cleaned.

  • Your colours will be more vivid
  • Your patterns will be more striking
  • Your rug will feel softer
  • Your rug will smell fresher
  • Your rug will last longer

Wool rugs are a great investment that can last generations, if properly maintained.

You will be surprised how much dirt your vacuum cleaner misses. We often receive comments from our customers that they did not know how dirty their rug was until it had been cleaned. Rugs, especially wool rugs, have an amazing capacity to hold a copious amount of soil, dirt and skin particles in them. Even the most finely crafted handwoven rugs with a high kpsi (knots per square inch) have endless pockets for soil to hide in. Admittedly, as wool rugs are excellent at hiding dirt, homeowners love using wool rugs for areas with busy foot traffic as they hide the amount of soil that has built up in them.

Warning: If a cleaning contractor offers to clean your rug using the hot water extraction method, do not let them! To the uninitiated, rugs and carpet may seem like they have the same construction and therefore can be cleaned using the same techniques. But hot water extraction using commercial carpet cleaning detergents can permanently damage the delicate dyes of your rug. Additionally, hot water extraction using standard portable or truckmount carpet cleaning equipment is only surface cleaning and not proper washing.

Oriental Rug Care uses specialised rug cleaning machinery, detergents and techniques to ensure that your rug is thoroughly cleaned using the safest and most effective techniques available. As rug cleaning specialists, we have cleaned thousands of square meters of rugs over the years. We know what works and we are determined to provide you with a service that you will continue to use and recommend.
