Cleaning and Care of Wool Carpets
To ensure the maximum life out of your carpet, the key things to remember are regular vacuuming (preferably with an upright vacuum) and never rub, brush or massage the carpet pile when it is wet.
The simple steps for maintenance are:
- Vacuum regularly - at least once a week and more often in heavy traffic areas - this will remove free soil particles and surface litter, and prevent soil from becoming embedded in the pile, which causes accelerated wear by grinding at the base of the tufts.
- Promptly attend to spills and stains. Most oily or greasy stains can be removed even after a considerable period of time, however certain stains may have a chemical reaction with the fibre - actually dyeing the carpet - and such stains are irreversible. For unusual stains and spills we recommend contacting a professional carpet cleaner.
- Periodic wet cleaning by a reputable operator will remove entrapped soil particles and revive the appearance of your carpet (but this does not negate the need for regular vacuuming).
