CARE GUIDE

KEEP YOUR WOOL CARPET LOOKING GREAT

We use the very best carpet fibre in our products so they will stand the test of time. One of the things we do to ensure owning a Wools of New Zealand carpet does not cost the earth is to provide care and maintenance advice.

 

THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU CAN DO:

 

VACUUM REGULARLY

 

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

 

PROFESSIONALLY CLEAN

 

ATTEND TO SPILLS

VACUUM CLEANING

The most important step to maintaining your carpet is proper vacuuming.

 

We recommend a complete vacuum once a week to remove dust and soil and to prevent particles becoming embedded in the pile. For extra heavy traffic areas more often is best.

 

Use an upright canister vacuum with an adjustable rotating beater bar / brush for cut pile carpets. For loop pile carpets use a suction only vacuum.

 

Go slow, give the vacuum time to do its job.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

You can prevent damage to your carpet by placing absorbent mats at the entrances to your home.   These should be changed and cleaned when they become dirty.

 

Wool is not afraid of dirt, but over time it can build up and cause abrasion that might make your precious wool carpet look a bit old before its time.

Besides you'll want to curl your toes into that deep fluffy pile.  Leave your boots at the door.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANING

To keep your wool carpet looking as good as it did when it was first installed, we recommend periodic wet cleaning by a professional.  Once every second year is suggested.  Follow the experts advise and avoid walking on your carpet until it is dry – about 4 hours depending on the local climate.

SPOT AND SPILL REMOVAL

Don’t panic! Spills happen. Luckily wool is amazing at repelling most gunk.

 

Removing spills is essential to looking after your precious wool carpet. When faced with an incident, speed is of the essence.
