P rofessionally deep clean your carpets every 12 to 18 months to remove embedded dirt and grime. Wool Wisdom Frequent vacuuming is a wool carpet’s best friend. An upright vacuum with a beater bar/ brush is the best type for cut pile carpet. A suction-only vacuum may be required for loop pile Berber carpets to prevent excessive fuzzing. • Vacuum cleaner dust bag should be emptied when half full. • Exercise prevention maintenance by placing absorbent mats at the most frequently used entrances to your home. Change or launder when these mats become dirty. Filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be changed regularly. • Periodically clean traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used chairs with an absorbent powder. • Keep absorbent cloth or paper towels and cleaning solutions on hand for quick response to spills and accidents. **DO NOT apply stain repellent treatments which contain any silicone as they tend to accelerate carpet soiling.(Some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.) When having your wool carpet professionally cleaned, use a “WoolCare Specialist” such as Clean As A Whistle.
