What You Should Know About Wool Carpet

Wool carpet is the most common natural carpet fiber on the market today. It is considered a luxury carpet fiber because it is more expensive and higher maintenance compared to other synthetic carpet fibers on the market.

Advantages

The main advantage to wool carpet is the look and feel of it. It is naturally soft and resilient, meaning that it won’t matt or wear down over time. It is also naturally stain and fire resistant. Wool does not melt like synthetic fibers do. Because it is a natural fiber, it is also hypoallergenic and sustainable. It is an environmentally friendly carpet that is also biodegradable and recyclable.

Disadvantages

Because it is a luxury carpet fiber, it costs more to buy and to maintain. One of the main issues with it is that it absorbs water. While this can help by acting and a natural humidifier in your home, it can also cause mold and mildew issues if it is installed in an area with high humidity. Spills will also be readily absorbed into the fibers, making it less than ideal for families where pet accidents may be an issue. Wool is also susceptible to moths and other pests, just like wool sweaters.

Wool is a beautiful, soft luxury carpet fiber that can be a beautiful carpet in your home. It is important to understand the advantages and disadvantages, however, before investing in wool. With proper maintenance, it can last for years, but it is important to take a look at your home and lifestyle before choosing it. Stop by Carpet Depot and let us help you decide whether wool carpet works for you, your home, and your lifestyle.
