More about Wool and why it’s great for carpets.
Wool Carpets are a fantastic investment. Cared for correctly they can last decades and continue to look and feel great.
The wool’s texture and its ability to recover well from crushing, clean well and resist soiling make it a great choice. Its construction provides durability and combined with its protein constituent and moisture content has a natural flame-resistance, meaning it can keep a great appearance for years.
Wool carpets are soil-resistant. The cuticle (outer layer), of the wool fibre, has a waxey surface with scales that overlap to keep soil in the upper area meaning that it can be easily removed.
This protective membrane on the cuticle also stops water from readily penetrating the wool carpets fibre.
Wool is a complex fibre, The cells within Wool come in two different types: the orthcortex and paracortex , these lie on opposite sides and grow at differing rates. This causes a three-dimensional corkscrew structure much like a coiled spring, giving wool carpets high elasticity and an ability to recover normal dimensions. Wool fibre’s can be stretched and still bounce back.
Wool absorbs a lot of moisture, wool can absorb up to 1/3 of its weight in moisture without feeling damp and is never truly ‘dry’. The wool carpets absorption properties help to enable it to recover from furniture marks.
Cleaning wool properly and correctly is important to maintain the wool carpets appearance. Regular maintenance should consider the likely soiling levels. Considerations should include who uses the carpet including pets, types of soiling, such as street grime near entrances and through walkways and possible food and drink spills,
Many carpet manufacturers recommend regular often annual cleaning to prolong the life of your carpets. Some carpet warranty’s insists upon this.
