To understand better, why does our rug need to clean, which is made up of natural fiber like wool, silk or cotton, we’d better compare it to similar stuff i.e. our clothing, or hair, but differently, since the rug is spread on the floor and all the suspended particles in the air and dust and even bacteria and harmful microorganisms shed on the rug, it increases the necessity of washing it. Because these suspended particles and dust mount on the warp and weft of the rug and cling to its fibers due to humidity, and eliminates the elasticity of fibers and any sudden movement may tear fibers which silk or wool knot mounted on them and quickly may cause a hole in the rug, so you can prevent it by washing and removing dust.
Meanwhile, if the rug is not washed for a long time, you provide an ideal environment within and between fibers to grow and reproduction harmful bacteria, as well as wool eating moths. So you may guarantee your health and your rug’s for longer time and enjoy it by washing once a while.
