How To Take Better Care Of Your Woolen Rugs And Carpets

Carpets come in many different styles and fashions. They have a very long history. Modern carpets are not like their ancestors, however. Older carpets, for once, were made exclusively from wool, whereas modern ones are made of synthetics or plant products. As a certified and experienced carpet cleaning service, we have dealt with every type of carpet you can find on the market.

Today we are going to tell you all about our favorite type of carpets – woolen ones. They have some advantages and also a couple of disadvantages.

  • wool carpetFirst thing you should know about carpet cleaning wool is that it’s a very absorbent material. It absorbs up to 30% of it’s weight, without feeling wet. When washed, however, it is very hard to deal with, because it becomes very heavy and difficult to maneuver. It takes an eternity to dry too.
  • Woolen carpets absorb the moisture in the air as well. That reflects on the room’s humidity and temperature, making it cooler and less humid.
  • They are easier to dye and last longer in terms of good looks and quality of the colors. That is due to the wool’s natural chemical properties, which increase the durability and strength of the colors.
  • If you have seen a woolen carpet, you may have noticed the fibers overlap each other like roof shingles. This is one of the most desirable qualities when it comes to carpet cleaning. It keeps the dirt and spilled liquids on the surface and doesn’t allow them to set in.This makes the carpet cleaning much faster and easier. That’s why wool is the preferred choice of any carpet cleaning service.
  • The worst thing about a woolen carpet is the price. Unlike synthetic carpets, woolen ones are made of natural materials, which take more time and effort to produce. They are naturally soil and stain resistant, however.
  • Woolen fibers are subject to a lot of wear and tend to shed over time. That is important if you have kids, or like to sit and enjoy the comfort of your carpet. It can be quite annoying having woolen fibers stick to your clothes.
  • When hiring a carpet cleaning service, or doing the carpet cleaning on your own, remember to avoid highly alkaline agents, as they can damage the fibers.

That’s pretty much all about woolen carpets. If you can afford them, we advise you to definitely give them a try.
