Wool carpet is increasing in popularity among homeowners who favor natural materials. While wool carpeting certainly is environmentally friendly and can look astounding in your home, it does require you to be careful while cleaning and maintaining it. Follow these
Do: Vacuum with the brushes set as high as possible.
You don't want your vacuum's brushes working their way through your wool carpet fibers. While this helps extract deeper dirt from a synthetic carpet, all it will do for a wool carpet is make it look fluffy and unkempt. Set the vacuum brush as high as possible when vacuuming your wool carpet – or better yet
Don't: Wait too long between vacuuming sessions.
Dirt naturally stays on the surface of wool
Do: Hire a professional to steam clean your carpet.
Wool carpet should be steam cleaned every year or so to keep dirt buildup at bay. But those home carpet shampooing units that work so well on synthetic carpet are not a good idea for wool. They tend to leave too much water behind, causing the wool to dry too slowly. When wool dries too slowly and unevenly, it shrinks. So, leave the carpet shampooing to a professional who is experienced in treating wool carpets. They have equipment to extract as much water as possible, and they know what shampoos to use to prevent damage, too.
Don't: Use a standard carpet stain remover.
Adhere to the tips above, and your wool carpet will stay looking bright and fresh for years to come. To find out more, speak with a business like Billy Clean Services Ltd.
