Over the years we have seen many of our customers have steadily been getting away from carpeted floors. As a result, hard surface floors such as wood and vinyl have gotten more and more popular. The trade off to switching to hard surface floors becomes that is no place for the dirt, dust, and hair to hide in your carpet.
No one wants to see dust mites and hair rolling around on the floor. If you have pets in your home, then the visibility of dust and hair will increase for your Ocean county and Monmouth county home.
Besides sweeping the floor multiple times a day, a possible solution to keeping your floors looking clean and enjoying beautiful hard surface flooring is is to add an area rug in your home.
Different Types of Area Rugs Require Different Care
Area rugs, just like regular wall to wall carpet, need to be cleaned regularly. Similarly, they also need special area rug cleaning practices. Lots of high-end area rugs are made from special fibers and construction.
Wool Area Rugs
A quite common fiber for area rugs is wool and it provides a lot of good characteristics as far as area rugs go. Wool rugs provide soft feel, elegant colors, and are even to some degree fire resistant due to wools natural self-extinguishing abilities. Just like most things these good qualities come with a tradeoff. Wool is heavy and it can hold 30% of its weight in moisture vapor without even feeling damp. Wool is a natural fiber which also means it absorbs colors much easier than some other fibers but also means it can let those colors go easily too.
