These types of harmful products can damage and destroy your naturally made wool carpeting and area rugs. Professional cleanings on wool area rugs and carpeting should be done every 4 months to twelve months by a professional wool carpet cleaner, depending on the use. Not just any carpet cleaner is trained and prepared to clean wool carpeting and rugs, call the professionals at Air Fresh Chem-Dry. Airborne contaminants, pet dander and hair, dirt, soil, dust, debris and stains can build up over time if wool carpeting is not properly maintained.

Helpful Tips On Maintaining Your Wool Carpets & Rugs

  • 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 excessive fuzzing. Vacuum cleaner dust bag should be emptied when half full.
  • Exercise prevention maintenance by placing absorbent mats at the most frequently used entrances to your home. Change or launder when these mats become dirty. Filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be changed regularly.
  • Periodically clean traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used chairs.
  • Keep absorbent cloth or paper towels and cleaning solutions on hand for quick response to spills and accidents.
  • DO NOT apply stain repellent treatments which contain any silicone as they tend to accelerate carpet soiling. (Some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.)
