How To Spot Clean Wool Carpet

Advice gathered from the manufacturers of wool carpets, together with the experience of NCA accredited carpet cleaners, recommend the following procedures for how to spot clean wool carpet:


Spills and stains must be attended to as soon as possible. Absorb the spill using kitchen roll, tea towel, or a bath towel – depending on the amount spilled, by pushing gently into the wet area. Use a BLOTTING technique and do not rub into the pile surface. Work from the outside edge, into the middle to limit the area affected and prevent spread. For congealed liquids that wont soak into a tissue, such as vomit, oil, or soup; lift using a spoon and tip into a cup. Slide the spoon deep into the pile to lift out as much as you can.


NEVER rub or spray water onto the carpet as this can cause colour bleed or shrinkage, leading to a permanent wrinkled area or pattern bleed.
NEVER use salt or white wine on the spill. Use a spot cleaner designed for WOOL and work in using a brush. After use, brush the pile back into its right direction.


Lift up using a knife or spoon. Do not rub it into the pile with a wet cloth and follow above instructions.


Should be removed by trained professional carpet cleaners and NOT by water spray and suction, as this can cause serious colour runs and shrinkage, which is then permanent damage.
