Nobody was calling you ignorant. But nylon your right on dysons, and warranty. Your right about nylon and rotory tools and warranty. But wool isn’t nylon. I’m doubting you have visited many successful wash pits (plants). Name a single known successful wash pit that doesn’t agitate wool when hand washing. John Lennon’s Rug was just cleaned that sat under his piano by one of the industries most well respected wool rug washer scrubbing it with a 175If you are calling ME ignorant because of no agitation, I will state that if you need agitation for cleaning a wool rug you haven't a clue what your doing! Why would you introduce any wear (and yes your agitation causes wear) to any valuable rug. If one uses agitation by means of a rotary it voids warranty of nylon carpets. Certain models of Dyson vacuums also voided carpet warranties because they were too aggressive. NO AGITATION IS NEEDED FOR CLEANING WOOL RUGS!
Scott Warrington one of this forum most esteemed members and rug experts in the field who teaches rug washing agitates rugs using CRBs. How do you possible get out latent fibers rinsing them?
The way your right is IF your discussing very loose weaves, poorly made, or fragile textile.
