Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in West Valley City

One of the most critical areas of good wool carpet maintenance is the quick removal of spots and spills. It is of extreme importance to act quickly and efficiently when anything is spilled or dropped, and to always have the necessary carpet cleaning materials at hand. The professionals at Intermountain Chem-Dry in West Valley City, UT use special professional carpet 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 from occurring. Your vacuum cleaner dust bag should be emptied when half full to prevent any excess dust particles from escaping and falling onto your carpets.
  • Practice prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs and mats at the most frequently used entrances to your West Valley City, UT home. Wash or change these rugs or mats when they become soiled or dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be changed regularly to maximize the amount of dust particles that are removed by the filter.
  • Periodically clean heavily used traffic lanes in your home and the areas in front of frequently used sofas and chairs.
  • Keep absorbent paper towels and cloths and the appropriate carpet 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.) When having the wool carpets in your home professionally cleaned by the experts at Intermountain Chem-Dry in West Valley City, UT, ask about our Wool Safe® products and how they can benefit your wool carpets.
