WHY CHOOSE WOOL CARPETS FOR YOUR HOME
Wool is engineered by nature for keeping out freezing temperatures, rain and snow. However, it also cools the herds in warmer months. Therefore, it comes as little surprise that wool is naturally engineered to create beautiful and durable carpets.
When it comes to sustainability, this is the natural choice. Shearing is an essential process for the sheep’s welfare and this annual shearing provides a continuous supply of wool year after year, making it a totally renewable raw material.
One of woolâ€™s great properties lies in the fibres. Its natural property results in the following benefits:
- Reduced heat loss, condensation and noise
- Improved air quality
- Ease of maintenance
- Reduced effects of tracking and shading
- Naturally flame retardant
- Superior durability and performance
- The bulk and springiness will naturally reform following compression
- Inbuilt resistance to soiling thanks to its natural oils and the scaled structure of the fibre, which acts as a shield against dirt.
How to clean a wool carpet
Now that weâ€™ve persuaded you to invest in a new carpet, we thought we best share some top tips on how to keep it clean! Weâ€™re helpful like that.
Thankfully wool is dirt and stain resistant, but you still need to vacuum it at least once a week. This will give it the best chance of looking its best longer and will prevent dirt and debris sinking into the carpet.
Tackle stains straight away
Whatever you do, donâ€™t let a stain settle into your carpet â€“ the longer its there, the harder it will be to remove. Invest in a high-quality carpet stain remover and follow its instructions. Just make sure you test the product on an inconspicuous section first.
Don’t Soak the fibres
One of the positives of the fibres is that they create little air pockets to provide insulation throughout the colder months. However, this makes carpets difficult to dry. Be sparing with any fluid used to clean the carpet and ventilate the room by opening windows and using a fan.
Do not Clean with hot water
A wool carpet is just the same as your favourite jumper â€“ the water temperature should always remain below 60Â°C. Wool will shrink and, in the case of carpets, pull away from the wall if the water is too hot.
Never use harsh cleaning products
Wool is made up out of sensitive, natural fibres that must not be exposed to direct sunlight or harsh cleaning agents. Make sure you buy a mild carpet cleaner without bleach and with a pH of 5-8.â€“
