Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in Bountiful

When having wool carpets, one of the most critical areas of good wool carpet maintenance is the quick removal of spots and spills. It is very important to act quickly and efficiently when anything is dropped or spilled, and to always have the appropriate cleaning materials at hand. Intermountain Chem-Dry servicing Bountiful, UT uses special professional cleaning agents that are specifically designed for use with your wool carpets.

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 excessive fuzzing. Your vacuum cleaner dust bag should always be emptied when its half full to prevent any excess dust particles from escaping and landing onto your carpets.
  • Exercise prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs and mats at the most frequently used entrances to your Bountiful, UT home. Change or launder these rugs and mats when they become soiled and dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should also be regularly changed to maximize the amount of dust and dirt particles that are removed by the filter, allowing fewer of them to land onto your carpets.
  • Periodically clean heavily traveled traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used sofas and chairs.
  • Keep paper towels or absorbent cloths and cleaning solutions on hand for quick responses to accidents and spills.
  • 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.)
