The degree of shedding also depends on the quality of fibers used. Good quality fibers have less chances of shedding as compared to poor quality fibers. Another reason governing shedding is the method of rug construction. Handmade rugs shed less than machine-made rugs because when rugs are handmade, each pile of fiber is carefully secured and knotted, which may not be the case in machine-made wool rugs. Whatever be the reason of shedding, it surely causes frustration to homeowners who eagerly look for ways to tackle this problem. Given below are a few tips to stop shedding of a wool rug.
Nowadays, you have pads made of PVC material, that are popularly sold in home improvement stores. Unlike the thick ones, these are thin and offer good ventilation for vacuuming. Moreover, these can be washed in soapy and warm water, making cleaning these pieces as simple process. These are also reversible and easy to cut, so that they fit under any sized rugs.
This loop pile type involves variations in the heights of loops, providing subtle patterns. Colors can be incorporated too to give an enhancement to the carpet.
Once you clean the rug with a vacuum cleaner, place it in an area where you will be able to shampoo it comfortably, and the water will drain away with ease. A patio or a driveway would be a good option. Place it on the floor and run cool water over it. We suggest that you place a plastic covering before you position the carpet so that no dust from the floor is attached to the rug. Test a corner before you wet it entirely. If the color does not run, you can wet its entire area. Shampoo it, and with a long, bristled brush, softly brush along the grain of the pile. Clean the fringes and brush away from the rug. Take a hose and rinse out the shampoo. Take a window squeegee or a sponge and remove excess water. Lay it flat on a dry surface and switch on the fan.
