How to ensure your wool carpet keeps looking great:
- Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum!
- Remove spills right away when they happen
- Have them maintained by having them professional cleaned on a regular schedule
- Don't wait until they look dirty. Often the dust and contaminants have sunk deep into the fibres.
The most important maintenance step is good vacuuming. Regular and careful vacuuming at least once a week and more often in heavy traffic areas will remove soil and dirt particles before they become imbedded deep into the pile of the carpet. One thing to remember is that there is no such thing as over-vacuuming.
Spot & Spill Removal
One of the most vital areas of carpet maintenance is to remove spills and spots right away. Acting quickly when anything is dropped or spilled, and always having the necessary cleaning material at available is very important.
We always like to recommend blotting up liquids with white paper towel or absorbent cloth. Scoop solids with the end of a knife or spoon and. Apply spot removal agent to clean towel or cloth, not directly to stain. Use small quantities at a time. Always work inward from the edge to prevent spreading. Do not rub, as this may cause the spot to spread or distort the pile. Do not over wet the carpet pile. Afterwards, blot as dry as possible with clean towel. Then call a rug cleaning specialist like Victoria Carpet Care - 250-474-7777
The Best Wool Rug Advice
Frequent vacuuming is a wool carpet's best friend. An upright vacuum with a beater/bar brush is the best type for cut pile carpet. A suction-only vacuum may be required for loop pile Berber carpets to prevent excess fuzzing. A great idea is to place small mats at the most frequently used entrances and high traffic areas your home. Vacuum these mats often and clean them when you see them getting dirty. Give extra care and time to vacuum traffic lanes and in front of regularly used chairs. Keep absorbent cloth or paper towels on hand for quick response to spills and accidents.
