The Many Benefits of Wool Carpet

Published: April 3rd, 2015

Wool carpet is a practical yet lovely option for homes of all shapes and sizes. It can really enhance your home’s look and feel, and you will not break the bank when you purchase this type of carpeting. We sell wool carpet to Maple Grove residents, and we can think of a few reasons you should consider this eco-friendly carpeting option.

  • Wool carpet is naturally resilient to stains and dirt, and it quickly recovers from crushing and indenting. This means your new wool carpet will continue to look new for a longer period of time than some other types of carpets on the market.
  • How does wool carpet resist stains? There is a light, natural coating of lanolin on the surface of the wool. Lanolin is what keeps dirt and stains from penetrating the wool fibers. Spills on wool carpet are very easy to clean up.
  • Wool carpet won’t just resist stains and dirt. It is also naturally flame resistant, so it does not require any chemicals in order to be flame resistant. This reason alone makes it an excellent option for your home, especially children’s rooms.
  • Another big advantage of wool carpet is that it is incredibly durable. This is another reason it is a great choice for families. No matter how much foot traffic your home gets, your wool carpet will hold up with basic care and maintenance.
  • Wool carpet does not allow water to penetrate into its fibers very easily. While it is not 100% waterproof, it is water resistant and can hold about 1/3 of its weight in moisture but still not feel damp.
  • It is also a great insulator. Wool carpet can help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • And if you are worried about limited style and color options, don’t be. Wool carpets come in a huge variety of colors, styles and patterns, so you are sure to find the perfect one to match your home’s décor.
  • Wool carpet is environmentally friendly because wool is a renewable resource. Wool comes from sheep, and wool fibers always grow back. And wool carpets do not need to be chemically treated in order to be fire resistant.
