Sydney Rug Cleaners offer one of the best woolen rug cleaning in Sydney. Wool is a natural protein fibre which comes from animal hair, usually from sheep. In the modern world New Zealand is considered to be the best source of wool for carpet and rug manufacturing. The quality of wool is determined by its fibre diameter, colour, staple strength, crimp and yield.
To better understand the woolen rug cleaning process we need to know what they are made of. Woolen rugs are hygroscopic and can hold up to 30% of their body-weight in water without feeling wet. Another feature of wool is that it is a fire retardant and it’s very resilient because wool fibres return to their natural position. On the downside, wool is susceptible to fading in sunlight and may suffer colour damage due to ‘cellulose browning’, this occurs when there is a marked change in ph level.
