If your family commonly tracks dirt inside the house with their shoes, a wool carpet will make your life easier thanks to its dirt resistance property. It will still require cleaning, but not as often as other carpets. Less time spent vacuuming and cleaning your carpet means more time available for other activities.
An additional way that wool carpets establish a safer home is by purifying the air. Some common air pollutants are sucked into the wool and are locked down for up to 30 years. That's much better than having those harmful chemicals finding a new home in your lungs and bloodstream, right? They don't harm the wool like they do to your body.
So far, we now know that wool defends itself well against dirt, fire, and air pollution. As surprising as it is, we can add another to the list: moisture. Wool carpets protect themselves against humidity by sucking in the moisture up to 30% of its weight. When the atmosphere is dry again, the wool releases the moisture back into the air.
This is a great feature, because the wool carpet acts as a humidifier and prevents the air in your home from either becoming too dry or humid. An added benefit is the carpet feels cool against your feet when it has sucked in the moisture – perfect for those frustratingly humid days.
Wool carpets are a great choice for any home or business, because they are naturally resistant to many things you don't want in your home from the minor annoyances to life-threatening issues. Providing protection from dirt and humidity to fire and air pollution, wool creates a cleaner safer environment for your household.
