A few helpful tips for wool rug cleaning can add years to the life of the beautiful floor covering. Wool rugs are like any other rug except that they are constructed using hair of the sheep, making them resilient and adorable decorative ornaments for the homes. Regular vacuuming, sweeping and cleaning can do a lot for their upkeep. However, do not attempt cleaning the wool rugs if you are not experienced or wanting in the correct know-how. It is best to hire professional help who are conversant with the precious novelty and will readily steam clean the rug for a price.

There are do-it-yourself methods of wool rug cleaning that you could adopt to refurbish the lost spotless looks. It is worth the effort to maintain the original sanitary condition and luxurious appearance of the woolen accessories at home. Being more expensive, wool rugs are the ultimate in doing up the floor. Vacuuming gently in an “M” pattern is a good way of keeping the rugs clean instead of shaking or beating them. Washing wool rugs should be resorted to only when the dirt cannot be vacuumed away. While in the process of wool rug cleaning, extreme care should be exercised not to damage or pull it out of shape. Since wool should not be washed too often and neither can you machine wash it, use cold water and a carpet shampoo to gently rub the dirt away. Rinse well and dry thoroughly by placing towels above and below it to soak in the moisture.

Get rid of spills and stains as soon as you notice them. Soak up most of it and using a spot remover or dry foam, wipe them away, working towards the center to avoid spreading them. Wool rug cleaning needs special skill. It is not difficult once you have your mind and heart set on the project.

“Dear Haim,
It has been so very busy here, thank God, that I never had the chance to formally thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you and your team did with our rugs and sofa. I know when a job is superior and such is the case, much to my surprise, upon entering the apartment after you completed the work.

Thank you again – you will ever be our service provider etc…“

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

A few weeks ago, I had Haim Shemesh clean my sofa & I was very pleased. He was professional, the price was reasonable & my sofa looks brand new again!

Sunlight Customer, Oriental Rug Cleaning

I had Haim Shemesh from Sunlight clean all my area rugs. He did a fabulous job! They are all handmade Orientals and he took them to a place that soaks them in a tub and hand washes them the way it’s supposed to be done. They look so much better and brighter Haim came to my apt to give me an estimate, took the rugs, then delivered them back to me a week later. He even helped me set them back up, including moving furniture around to do so. Prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend doing business with him!
