Wool Carpet Cleaning: Carpet Cleaners Castle Rock CO

 

  •         Frequent carpet  cleaning is the single most important care you can give your wool carpet.
 

The make up of wool fiber resembles the shingles on a pine cone. This make up  in nature naturally repels soiling, (up to 15% more readily than synthetic carpet) keeping soil and dirt towards the surface of the pile. Nearly 70% of carpet soiling is caused from dry materials like mud, hair, dirt, dust and soil. Beginning from the day you install your wool carpet, frequent vacuuming removes these dirt particles before they can become embedded in your carpet TLC carpet Care in Castle Rock Co recommend steam cleaning your carpets at least twice a year, paying more attention to heavily soiled areas. An sears upright or canister vacuum with a rotating beater bar/brush can be used on most cut pile carpets, but it not recommended for regular use on velvet cut pile carpets.

 

To prevent possible carpet frawing, we recommend using a suction only vacuum on loop pile carpets when possible (no use of rotating beater bars or brushes). We also recommend emptying the vacuum dust bag when it becomes half full to maintain cleaning effectiveness. 

Spot Cleaning Wool Rugs

One of the keys to carpet maintenance is the timely removal of spots and spills. This means acting quickly when anything there has been a spill.

Detergent Solution: TLC carpet Care in Castle Rock Co recommends creating a solution of 1 teaspoon of Woolite, 1 teaspoon of white vinegar and about a quart of warm water. Keep a bottle of this economical mixture on hand for those unexpected spills.

Recommended Spot Cleaning Protocal:

  1. Scoop up solids first
  2. Blot up as much liquid as possible with a clean white terry cloth. 
  3. Apply TLC's spot removal treatment to the clean towel and not on the carpet directly. Always work inwards from the edge to prevent spreading. With any cleaning product that you have not used before on the carpet make sure to test a small inconspicuous part of the carpet first before a general application.
  4. Rinse the area with cold not hot  water.
  5. Blot the area dry using paper towels or a dry using a fan.
  6. Never, Never scrub or rub your wool carpet as this can cause permanent pile distortion

Professional Carpet Cleaners

The natural soil repellent properties of the wool fibers do not require a lot of spot cleaning. You should have your carpet professionally cleaned once every 1 to 2 years or as needed.

We highly recommend finding a carpet cleaner like TLC carpet Care in Castle Rock Co who is experienced cleaning wool carpets as some solvents used to clean Nylon carpets might not be suitable for wool. Finding a reputable wool carpet specialist by checking references is worth the time, but is worth it to help keep your carpet clean and healthy.

For example, your professional carpet cleaner should not apply any stain repellant treatments that contain silicone because they tend to accelerate carpet soling. As always have the cleaner test the cleaning agent on a small inconspicuous area before proceeding to the entire room. Always vent your rooms out thoroughly both during and after a professional cleaning to freshen your air and to help the carpet dry thoroughly which helps prevent mold.
