Stain Removers can damage Wool Rugs-by Luv-A-Rug

188 Luv-A-Rug 445 Beta St Victoria BC 250-590-6210/ 800-886-2802. Most stain and spot removers are NOT made for Wool areas rugs. They can actually do more damage than the original spill. When you do get a bad spill only use a dampened white cotton towel and blot the area and then get it professionally cleaned right away.
The longer a spill or pet accident is on a rug the harder it is to remove. This was a soapy water spill that was not taken care of and the soap residue attracted dirt. so the owner took a spot remover made for cotton clothes and applied it to the dirt spots. The spot remover changed the colour of her rug, probably permanently. If she had just gotten it cleaned after the soapy water spill it would still look like new.
