Wool Carpet Advice

Lucky you, wool carpets are beautiful and functional. Since wool is a natural fiber, it naturally resists (not entirely but for the most part) by keeping dirt and dust close to the surface where it can be sucked up by regular vacuuming. However, wool does stain easily and permanently if the stains are not removed quickly, thoroughly and most importantly with appropriate cleaning products.

If you wait until your wool carpet is over-soiled then it will be extremely difficult to restore your carpet. By having a professional clean it every 1-2 years you can extend the life of your carpet as well as promote a healthier, cleaner environment.

When you vacuum in between professional cleaning visits make sure that you vacuum slowly. Not everyone enjoys taking his or her time while vacuuming and often like to get the chore done as quickly as possible, but taking your time allows the vacuum to penetrate the surface and suck up a substantial amount of debris.  For a greater effect, make sure that the vacuum you are using has brushes that barely touch the carpet. This will not slow down the motor and in addition will help prevent fuzzing due to minimal friction breaking the fibers on the top of the rug or carpet.

Be sure to never use bleach on your wool carpet or other products -with a high level pH. The genetic build up of wool will cause it to dissolve. If you are unsure of your carpet cleaners but you would like to test your product, use a bit of the cleaner on the outer edge of your carpet. This way if anything happens negatively you didn’t cause a giant splotch in the center of your beautiful carpet. Though you will manage to keep your carpet clean with regular upkeep it is important to routinely call in professionals to deep clean your wool carpets.
