How do you clean a wool area rug?

The rug is wool, no backing and about 5x8 and covered in dog and cat hair! Can I do it myself? Or do I need to take it to the cleaners?


You can use Capture, comes in a bucket (powder) at Lowes in the flooring department. Used it for mine but just didn't do the trick. I talked to friend who sells carpet and rugs and he said for wool my only option without ruining the rug would be to take to Sekurity Amerkanian. It's located in Cincinnati. They said they would dry clean it for me for around $400.

i would use a damp cloth to get pet hair off then i used vanish bar soap and warm water, comes up a treat and smells fresh just dont have the water too hot! also put a bit of washing up liquid in the water it helps.good luck

Capture or other dry cleaning system will do just fine.
