Professional Rug Cleaning

When a rug label states that it is 100% wool it only refers to the yarn. The backing of a rug can be made of cotton, wool or synthetic fibres. Although wool is the best material for the rug pile, it is not the best material for the foundation of the rug (after washing, a wool foundation rug will not lie flat).
