Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in Cornelius

One of the most critical areas of good carpet maintenance is the quick removal of spots and spills. It is of utmost importance to act quickly and efficiently when anything is dropped or spilled, and to always have the necessary cleaning materials close at hand. Prestige Chem-Dry servicing Cornelius, NC only uses specialized professional cleaning agents that are specifically designed for use with your delicate 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 any excessive fuzzing. Empty your vacuum cleaner dust bag when it’s half full in order to prevent any excess dust particles from escaping and landing on your carpets.
  • Exercise prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs and mats at the most frequently used entrances to your Cornelius, NC home. Change or launder these rugs or mats when they become soiled and dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be regularly changed to maximize the amount of dirt and dust that is removed by the filter, allowing fewer of them to end up on your carpets
  • Periodically clean heavily traveled traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used chairs and sofas.
  • Keep absorbent cloths or paper towels and cleaning solutions on hand for quick responses to any 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.)
