Oriental Rugs and Fiber Protector – The Perfect Combination

Water beads on protected wool fibers

Sheep produce large amounts of lanolin that helps protect their skin and “coats” by providing waterproofing” and wear resistant properties.  When their wool is sheared to create beautiful area rugs, coats, and other consumables, the natural protection is no longer produced, and the wool is subject to staining and fiber deterioration.

To preserve wools natural stain fighting properties a fiber protector can be applied.

Clients often ask about fiber protector and how it works.

At Oriental Rug Salon we recommend the application of fiber protector after an area rug has been cleaned for the following reasons:

  • To preserve the fibers from staining by most spills. Protector is designed to form a shield around the fibers thereby allowing most spills to be easily removed by a paper towel.
  • Your rug will receive a more in-depth clean from your vacuuming as soils cannot stick to treated rugs fibers
  • A quality protector will help protect against UV fading
  • People with allergies will benefit as pollen and other contaminants are easily removed with a thorough vacuuming.
  • Fiber protector helps protect against wear and will help prolong the life of the area rug

Wool protector is invisible and does not leave a residue that will change the feel of the fibers.  Wool guard protector is environmentally friendly and safe for pets and infants.
