Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in Saratoga Springs

One of the most critical areas of effective wool carpet maintenance is the quick removal of spots and spills. It is very important to act quickly and efficiently using the right cleaning tools and products when anything is dropped or spilled onto your carpets. Intermountain Chem-Dry servicing Saratoga Springs, UT uses special professional 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 be emptied when half full to prevent excess dust particles from escaping the vacuum and landing onto your carpets.
  • Practice prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs or mats at the most frequently used entrances to your Saratoga Springs, UT home. Change or launder them when they become soiled or dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should also be changed regularly to minimize the amount of dust and dirt particles that fall onto your carpets.
  • Periodically clean traffic heavy traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used sofas and chairs.
  • Keep absorbent paper towels or 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.)
