Wool Wisdom

Wool Carpet

One of the most crucial areas of carpet maintenance is removal of spots and spills. Acting quickly when anything is dropped or spilled, and always having the necessary cleaning materials at hand are of the utmost importance. We recommend a “WoolClean Spot Removal Kit,” which can be purchased from a Wools of New Zealand Partner Retailer. Call 800-367-0462 or check the Wools website at www.woolsnz.com for the Partner Retailer nearest you.

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 (such as Host®, Dri-Matic® or Capture®).
  • 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” certified by Restoration Industry Association.

Stop Dirt at the Door

Welcome Mat

Preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet in the first place is a great way to start keeping it clean. 

The following helpful hints can stop dirt in its tracks.

  • Use mats — Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters the house.
  • Take off your shoes — You can save wear and tear on carpet by asking everyone to take their shoes off before entering your home.
  • Change your air filters — Change air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended by the manufacturer’s directions. 
  • The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto the carpet.

Why Do White Knots in Oriental Rugs Occur?

Did you know that “white knots” is a term to describe a condition inherent in hand knotted rugs, where light colored spots appear over time, seemingly at random, in the body of the rug pile? They are sometimes called “rug freckles.” These spots are knots in the rug’s foundation that have worked their way through the rug pile and are showing through the pile yarns.

When a hand knotted rug is made, its foundation is made of warp and weft yarns. Warp yarns run the length of the rug and weft yarns span the rug’s width. Often the material the weaver has on hand is too short for the length needed, so shorter lengths are tied together until then necessary length is achieved. Also, in the weaving process some warp yarns can break, and the loose ends have to be tied together, the knots used in all of these instances will eventually become white knots. When a rug is new and its pile is at full length, these knot scan be hidden from view, but eventually regular foot traffic will wear the pile length down and begin to expose them.

Although the term “white knots” is used generally, their appearance reflects the material used in the foundation of a rug, so depending on the material used, your rug might have “blue knots” “gray knots” or others. It is important to understand when you begin to notice them that these knots do not indicate that there is a defect, or lack of quality with a particular area rug, rather they simply reflect how your rug was made. They should never be cut as this will lead to a hole in the foundation of your rug. Through foot traffic and regular soiling, these knots can become darker and less noticeable. With a thorough cleaning, the soils and stains that help to hide the knots will be removed, and the knots will reappear or become more noticeable. This does not mean there is a problem with the cleaning, but again reflects one of the physical characteristics of hand knotted rugs as they wear .

I recently had my tile floors stem cleaned and the grout revealed. They did an amazing job. My tile sparkles. They also cleaned the bedroom carpets and were able to get the pet stains out. They are highly professional and very customer oriented. Ivy was a pleasure to deal with on the phone" I have already recommended them to some friends

Doug Buskers recently won a free carpet cleaning from VAN’S CARPET CLEANING at our Small Business Expo. Doug says, “I want you to know they did a fine job, and my wife and I highly recommend them to anyone needing their carpet renewed. They showed up on time, cleaned a room sized rug and a hallway runner (we have hardwood floors), put them back where they belonged and never made a mess. A ‘Home Run’ from one of our Chamber members! Give them a Call!” You can reach Ivy and Ernie VanGorder of Van’s Carpet’s Cleaning to get your own carpets cleaned by calling 352-669-1540.
