Thinking about getting wool carpets in your house?

The flooring in your home needs to be hard wearing to keep up with the daily use, especially if you have a large family or pets! So how do you choose what kind of flooring to go for? In this week’s blog, we’re going to be looking at the pros and cons of having wool carpets as your chosen flooring. Our carpet showroom Warrington has been an established carpet and flooring provider for a number of years now and over that time we’d like to think we’ve become something of an expert when it comes to your flooring and carpet needs!

Wool Carpets Pros

Wool carpets are surprisingly durable! Natural wool will bounce back underfoot and underneath the weight of furniture. Wool also retains its original colour very well over the years of wear and cleaning. It accepts dye well and keeps it locked in, meaning wool carpets are available in a whole host of colours, patterns and designs! It’s also very easy to clean when it comes to the majority of water-based stains; wool tends to hold the dirt towards the top of the carpet surface, thus making it easier to clean. Finally, it’s incredibly environmentally friendly! It’s a brilliant way to keep your home insulated, as well as helping to keep the room humidity to a minimum during the hotter months.

Wool Carpet Cons

One of the big cons when it comes to wool carpets is the price! This type of flooring can cost up to twice the price of your average nylon or polyester carpet. It’s also difficult to clean when it comes to stains that are oily or greasy; they could potentially stain if they aren’t cleaned quickly. It’s also important to remember that wool is a natural fibre and it can shed slightly. The shedding tends to lay on the top of the carpet and can get picked up by clothing.
