What About Wool Carpet?

Why would I buy Wool Carpet?

Wool Carpet has innate stain/soil resistance so that chemical stain resistance treatments are not necessary. Wool’s unique fiber structure of overlapping, hard, microscopic scales (much like roof shingles), make it durable and hard wearing while inhibiting dirt adhering to the fiber and giving significantly better soil release than other fibers. Wool is one of the most forgiving and easiest fibers to clean and maintain. It does not attract lint so vacuuming is easier. In wet cleaning, the fiber swells and releases dirt particles.

IT’S NOT NICE TO FOOL MOTHER NATURE

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW:

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WOOL AND SYNTHETIC FIBERS

  • Wool is a natural product while synthetics are manufactured from man-made chemicals. Wool is the only authentic naturally sustainable carpet fiber.
  • Wool fiber is not only renewable and very durable, it is also low toxic and biodegradable. These are rare qualities in carpet fibers considering most petrochemical based fibers can include over 100 chemicals and be a source of indoor air quality problems.
  • Natural wool is one of the most durable carpet materials, lasting 25 to 50 years.
  • The soft look and rich feel of wool is still unmatched by any man made fiber and can be more affordable than you think.
  • Wool carpet is indeed a long lasting luxury carpet.
  • Wool production compares favorably with the manufacture of man-made fibers in regards to energy consumption utilizing under one-fifth of the energy of nylon manufacturing.
  • Wool is a natural fiber that synthetics strive to emulate.
  • Wool resists and releases soil more easily, is crush resistant, absorbs noise and noxious gases from the air, resists odor, and resists fire more than other fiber choices.
Wool carpet is safe for your family.

Merino Wool is the perfect blend of science and nature, not only as a high performance fiber, but also
because it is luxuriously soft. The softness that Merino wool brings to carpet in no way diminishes
performance. As in all wool, Merino wool is natural,sustainable, renewable and biodegradable. Merino
wool carpet is naturally stain, soil and crush resistant. Enjoy the uniqueness that Merino Wool brings to your carpet.

A truly renewable source for flooring comes from the environment.

A Brief History of Merino Wool

The history of Merino wool dates back to the 1200’s, when the Moors crossbred Spanish sheep with Berber sheep to produce the first Merino sheep. By the 1600’s wool from Merino sheep was recognized as the world’s finest wool, as it is still today. Merinos of all types were introduced into Australia in the late 1700’s. Through selection and crossbreeding, and with particular attention to the impact of the environment on both animal and fleece, the Australian Merino that we now know evolved.

How Do I Choose New Flooring?

How Do I Choose New Flooring?
Choosing new floors can be overwhelming and a bit confusing. Where do I start? There are virtually thousands of choices and just as many colors. We watch all the Television shows and it looks so easy and then we start the process and become confused and indecisive.

Deciding which floor to choose can be very difficult.

Don’t be confused, take your concerns to ProSource Wholesale Floorcoverings

Where do we begin?

  • If I have more then one area I start with the largest area to get floored.

When we have decided on which area we will start with, we begin the process with a few simple questions:

  • What is my budget?
  • What do I like?
  • How do we use the area?
  • Who uses the area most?
  • What are my greatest concerns for this room?

Let’s look at my budget first:

  • What is the total amount I want to spend? Let’s say that our budget figure is $3000.00 and I have a room that measures 15 x 23, which is 345 square feet.
  • Now divide your $3000.00 by your room size of 345 square feet and you find that you can spend $8.69 per square foot, (installed& Taxed)

What do I prefer ?

I am going to use Carpet and Hardwood as our option because they seem to be the ones I sell the most of.
To answer this I like to know how you use the room.
I personally prefer carpet, it’s warmer, softer, more quiet and I believe vacuuming is easier than dusting. My wife on the other hand, prefers Hardwood, she thinks dusting is faster and looks cleaner, so naturally we have a lot of hardwood in our home.
How we maintain and clean each product may become a concern for us as well. hardwood requires regular dusting and occasional use of a hardwood floor cleaner like:

Regular dusting is appealing to some who choose hardwood, while others don’t want to see dust bunnies gather on the smooth surface of hardwood so they might choose carpet.

How do we use the area?
If I know that my children and I will be on the floor a lot, I would prefer the softness of carpet and pad.

What are my greatest concerns for this room?

Looks, ease of cleaning, comfortable?
Is it a formal room? A play room? A media room? How I use it generally defines what I product I should select.
Kids and pets? I might want the ability of Resista Carpet with odor reducing qualities, (it’s like having a continual Renuzit® in your carpet) and it also comes with a No Exclusions Stain Warranty.

Sold by the square foot, carpet always gives you better bang for the buck, Period!

And if more than one product will fill our needs then we need to evaluate which product gives us the best bang for our Dollar.

Let’s Compare Carpet to Hardwood:

The numbers I used for the comparison of prices are from the same webpage using the same zip code. And I usually find that these facts are true, I could replace my carpet twice for the same price as Hardwood. Now, these figures all depend on which products you choose. A high dollar nylon carpet and an inexpensive oak hardwood should normally come pretty close to the same price. The figures above seem pretty good for products I show and that I have sold over the past couple of years.

Why Choose Carpet for Your Home?
With its many styles, textures and types of construction, carpet is the right choice for everyone, from first-time homeowners, to retirees, to families with kids and pets. Plus, carpet will maintain its beauty and durability for many years when it is properly chosen, installed and cleaned. Carpet actually improves indoor air quality.

Most people that have stains in their carpet because they don’t know how to clean them. this handy chart ~ Spot Solver has always worked for me and when it fails I call a Professional. If you don’t know a quality carpet cleaner call your local ProSource, they have many Members who they would love to send you to.

Do you like the new softer feel that carpet provides? You might want to check out Tigressá SoftStyle available through your local ProSource Store.

 One fact I like about about most Carpet, is that it’s American made. I like keeping our people employed.

Carpet is good enough for our Commander and Chief.
