Wool Carpet Care Tips

Wool Carpet Care Tips in South San Francisco

Removing spots and spills from your carpets is a very important part of carpet maintenance. It is really important to remember to act quickly when anything is dropped or spilled onto your carpet, and always have the proper cleaning materials at hand.  B & G Chem-Dry servicing South San Francisco, CA uses special professional green cleaning agents designed for use with your wool carpets.

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 from occurring on your carpet. Your vacuum cleaner dust bag should always be emptied when its half full to prevent any excessive dust particles from escaping and falling onto your carpets.
  • Practice good prevention maintenance by placing absorbent rugs and mats at the most frequently used entrances to your South San Francisco, CA home. Wash or change these rugs and mats when they become soiled or dirty. The filters in your heating and air conditioning systems should be regularly changed to maximize the amount of dust particles that are taken out of the air in your South San Francisco home.
  • Periodically clean the heavy traffic lanes and the areas in front of frequently used sofas and chairs.
  • Keep dry, absorbent cloths or paper towels and cleaning solutions on hand for quick responses to accidents and spills.
  • DO NOT apply any 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 carpets professionally cleaned by the experts of B & G Chem-Dry in South San Francisco, CA, ask about our Wool Safe® products.
