Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in Draper

One of the most critical areas of good wool carpet care is the quick removal of spots and spills. It is extremely important to act quickly and efficiently with the correct cleaning tools and solutions when anything is dropped or spilled. The wool carpet cleaning professionals at Intermountain Chem-Dry in Draper, UT uses special cleaning agents specifically designed for use with the wool carpets in your home.

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 any excessive fuzzing. Your vacuum cleaner dust bag should always be emptied when half full to prevent any excess dust particles from escaping and landing onto your carpets.
  • Practice prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs and mats in front of the most frequently used entrances to your Draper, UT home. Wash or change these rugs and mats when they become soiled or dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should also be changed regularly to maximize the amount of particles that are removed in order to minimize the amount that fall onto your carpets .
  • Periodically clean heavily used traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used chairs.
  • Keep the appropriate cleaning solutions and absorbent cloths or paper towels 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.) When having your wool carpet professionally cleaned by the specialists at Intermountain Chem-Dry in Draper, UT, ask about our Wool Safe® products and how they can benefit the wool carpets in your home.
