Wool Rugs And Carpets Advantages

Many people routinely have their best clothing items professionally dry cleaned, which helps to maintain their appearance and adds to their life. However, some of these same people never consider having the rugs and carpets in their home dry cleaned as well. The process of dry cleaning to properly care for and preserve valuable items made of quality materials is the same, whether for designer garments or for luxurious Persian carpets.

In fact, while many people spend a great deal of money on their wardrobe in order to look professional or to impress others, the carpets and rugs in a home are an expense that usually equals a few years worth of clothing purchases, at least. Those who invest in lush Oriental rugs or luxuriant Persian carpets might have spent tens of thousands of dollars just for one area rug to serve as a decorative accent to a room, not to mention the expense of carpeting the entire abode.

The method of dry cleaning carpets is the best approach for expensive or exotic rugs and carpets, as well as for any type of floor covering made of wool. Wool has long been the quality standard for tufted and woven carpeting and is still a popular choice for people shopping for high quality new carpets, and who want a natural fiber that will last a long time.

Wool has proven to be one of the safest materials to use for area rugs and carpeting because it is naturally much more fire resistant than other types of fibers. This means that Persian and Oriental carpets made from wool do not need to be treated with chemicals in order for the family that owns them to feel confident that their carpeting is safe in the case of fire. This is especially important for families in which one or more members have sensitivities to chemicals.

Another great thing about wool carpets and rugs is that they are extremely durable. A quality wool carpet that is regularly vacuumed and maintained by professional carpet cleaning services can last longer than just about any other type of carpeting. It may still look and feel great when the toddler who learned to walk across it walks to the podium to receive his diploma.

Carpeting made of wool can look great for so many years because wool is also naturally stain-resistant. The wool fibers actually repel stains, keeping them from penetrating into the fibers of the wool. This factor also makes wool floor coverings easier to clean if something is spilled or drips onto the carpeting. In addition, wool naturally resists dirt, grime, soil and debris, and is also non-allergenic, non-toxic and it does not encourage bacterial growth.

With all of these benefits, it is easy to see why wool rugs and carpets continue to be among the most popular types of new carpets sold. Dry cleaning by a professional carpet cleaning service is the best way to keep wool floor coverings looking their best through the years that they grace the floors of your home.
