Why Does My Wool Rug Smell?

Since wool comes from sheep fibers, sometimes wool rugs can take on an unpleasant smell when exposed to water or moisture. The odor is reminiscent of wet dog or barnyard animals, and when you’ve invested a bit of money into your wool rug, a smell like that can be alarming!

But not to worry. There are simple methods you can use to get the wet animal smell out of your wool rugs.

The most important thing to do is make sure the rug is completely dry. To avoid a permanent odor problem, you’ll want to act as soon as you notice the smell.

Hanging the rug outside on a clothesline in direct sunlight should do the trick. It can take several days for a rug that has gotten very wet to dry out completely. Be sure to bring it in at night to prevent it from collecting dew and compounding the problem. Alternate the side that faces out in order to give both sides of the rug a chance to dry.

If you live in a region with a very wet or humid climate, hanging your rug outside might not be possible. Instead, you can try hanging it up indoors and setting a fan up to blow in the direction of the rug until all the moisture is gone.

Whether you dry the wool rug outdoors or indoors, when it’s done drying sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda on it. Let the baking soda sit for at least an hour and then vacuum it up. Repeat this process on the other side of the rug.

If the unpleasant odor persists, there is still hope! Call a professional rug cleaning service to take care of the problem. Customers in the Asheville, NC area will find Five Step Carpet Care’s rug cleaning service to be affordable and effective. We offer convenient pick-up and delivery, or you can drop your rug off at our facility for cleaning. Your wool rug will come back to you looking and smelling like new.

Where Can I Take an Area Rug to be Cleaned?

Want to know where you can take an area rug to be cleaned? You have two options. You can either try to DIY it, or you can call in a professional.

We wrote a post some time back on the pros and cons of do-it-yourself rug and carpet cleaning. You should be able to safely go this route as long as your area rug is made with synthetic fibers, is not a fine oriental or Persian rug, and does not have excessive staining or contamination with pet waste.

If any of the above warnings apply to your rug, or if you just don’t want to mess with renting a rug cleaner and doing it yourself, you’ll want to hire an expert.

Professional rug cleaning services are available in most locations. Sometimes dry cleaners offer a drop off rug cleaning service, as well.

Of course, if you live in the Asheville, NC area, Five Step Carpet Care is your best option for competent and friendly rug cleaning services. We clean area rugs, fine rugs, and oriental rugs in our Asheville facilities, and you can either drop off your rugs or take advantage of our convenient pick-up and drop-off service.
