Wool Carpet Features

SOME FEATURES OF THE WOOL CARPETS ACCORDING TO HEALTH AND USAGE

1. Due to the physical tissue of its wool hair, it includes air between cells up to 60%.. Between the hairs is filled with air. These parts with air procure the wool with an upper level of insolence. Likewise in a survey carried out, the heat dissipation in a room without a wool carpet is 15% higher than a room with a wool carpet.

2. People working on foot get less tired in a place where there is a wool carpet. Because it is antistatic.

3. Since wool carpets transmit the ultra‐viole rays, it prevents the reproduction of the harmful bacteria on the wool carpets.

4. The ignition speed of wool carpets when faced with a fire is much less than the other carpets. ( acrylic, polypropylene and the others). For this reason it is a kind of guarantee against flaming up.

5. Wool carpet decreases the air pollution in closed areas by absorbing the sulfur dioxide gas which is harmful for the human health.

6. The touch of the wool has moisture absorbing knots. For this reason, wool absorbs the moisture in the air in a short time. But it gives out gradually the moisture it has taken to the air when the environment gets dry. Therefore wool carpets behave as if a regulator by preventing the air to an extent in where they are laid out.

7. Wool hairs are very enduring. For this reason wool carpets are very robust.

8. Carpets made from wool catch less dust than the others.

Tips for Cleaning Wool Rugs

Tips for Cleaning Wool Rugs

A wool rug is a beautiful, yet costly, addition to any home. Because of the nature of these natural fibers, cleaning wool rugs takes a special technique and extra care. Using the correct products will ensure that your wool rug is not damaged during cleaning. One way to help keep a wool area rug from getting too dirty in the first place is to ask family members to take their shoes off in the home”s entryway. Shoes worn outdoors carry an amazing amount of dirt, and keeping this dirt off of your valuable rugs will go a long way toward keeping them clean. Even so, wool rugs should be vacuumed frequently and thoroughly cleaned about every 12 to 18 months.

Vacuuming Wool Rugs

Dirt, dust, and other debris rubs against the fibers of a wool rug and can actually damage them. It”s very important to use a quality vacuum to remove this debris on a regular basis, and wool area rugs should be vacuumed at least as often as regular carpeting. In the first few years of a rug”s life, it will shed the excess wool fibers left over from the weaving process. These fibers leave a fuzzy appearance all over the rug and should be vacuumed a few times each week.

The vacuum”s height should be set to “high” so that the rotating brush does not create excessive agitation on the rug. Too much agitation will damage the wool fibers, lead to pilling, and may even cause shrinkage.

The brushes on the beater bar should lightly touch the rug during vacuuming. The brushing will help remove deep down dirt without agitating the fibers too much.

For the greatest suction, the vacuum bag or canister should be kept less than half full.

The vacuum should be moved in a ”V” path instead of back and forth in straight lines. Alternating the direction of the vacuum”s path prevents the fibers from being crushed.

Wool rugs can be turned upside down and the backside can be vacuumed as well.

Overall Cleaning

About once a year, wool rugs should receive an overall cleaning to remove general grime that a vacuum can”t touch. This will brighten the rug, giving it an almost new appearance, and will extend its life. To clean a wool rug at home, it should first be vacuumed well on both the front and back sides. The rug should be laid on a clean area outside, such as a porch or patio. A garden hose can be used to wet the rug with water. Around a quarter cup of a gentle liquid cleanser should be briskly stirred into a bucket of cool water. With a clean cloth, sponge, or even a mop, the sudsy mixture can be spread over the rug. A wool rug should never be scrubbed since intense agitation will damage the natural fibers and could lead to shrinkage. After soaping up the entire rug, it can be rinsed with the garden hose. All traces of soap suds should be rinsed away. (Eucalan Woolwash does not actually require rinsing.) Clean white towels can be laid over the rug, and then the whole thing should be rolled up together. The towels will absorb much of the water, and it can help to stand on the rolled­up rug to press out more water. The rug can be rolled up with dry towels again until very little water is absorbed into the towels. A wet/dry vac or a carpet cleaning machine can be used to help pull out excess water if desired. The cleaned wool rug should be laid flat to dry but should not spend more than a few hours in direct sunlight. The sun”s rays can cause both shrinkage and fading of the rug”s colors. The wool rug must be allowed to dry fully before being placed on a carpeted floor or having furniture placed on it. Remaining moisture can lead to mildew.

Professional Wool Rug Cleaning

Professionals are available to wash wool rugs for anyone who prefers not to take care of it at home. Some professionals offer steam cleaning, while others caution that steam cleaning can actually be harmful for wool rugs. Heat and friction can cause wool to shrink, and steam cleaning involves both. Discuss this option and its risks with a professional if interested.

Cleaning Stains

Stains should be cleaned up immediately to prevent setting in permanently. A clean white towel should be used to absorb as much of the spill as possible. (Colored towels can transfer their dyes to the wool rug and should never be used.) Because of potential damage or shrinkage of fibers, stains should not be scrubbed but should only be blotted and pressed. If a large amount of a more solid matter has been dropped onto the rug, a spoon can be used to gently scoop the matter up. Dry foam cleaning products make an efficient and safe way to clean up stains on wool area rugs. These products don”t use much water, which means the rug will dry quickly without the risk of developing mildew. The label directions should be followed carefully and usually include working the foam into the rug fibers, allowing it to dry, and them vacuuming up the remaining residue.

Cleaners to Avoid

Some cleaners can severely damage a wool rug and should be avoided.

Bleach

Oxygen­based “Oxy” cleaners or hydrogen peroxide

Alkaline cleaners including soda ash

Dry Powder cleaners ­ These can leave a residue that is virtually impossible to remove.

Cleaning wool rugs can be accomplished with a little time and effort and the right cleaning products. By cleaning spills right away and giving wool rugs a thoroughly yearly cleaning, your wool area rugs can be kept looking their best and brightest for many years.

Ten Tips for Buying an Carpet

The more you know about oriental rugs, the more you”ll appreciate the artistry and workmanship that goes into every carpet. You”ll also be better equipped to get the most value for your money. The following tips will guide you, but unless you are an expert, the most important decision you’ll make is where to buy your rugs. Go to a long‐established, reputable store that is willing to patiently teach you, answer your questions and show you all the rugs you want to see before you make a purchase. Don”t be pressured into buying immediately, especially at going‐out‐of‐business sales and auctions, which often have poor quality rugs and dramatically inflated prices. At Landry & Arcari, we offer educational programs throughout the year. Join us! Call us about upcoming events and to be put on our mailing list.

1. Know How Rugs Are Made Oriental rugs are woven on a loom, with strands of wool or cotton called warps stretched from beam to beam (top to bottom). The weaver makes horizontal rows called wefts, weaving in and out between the warps. Tying the warps together with a piece of wool then creates the pile. Knot by knot, row by row, the weaver works, taking about six months to produce a 6 x 9 carpet. You’ll notice that each rug has a “direction” due to its being woven on a vertical loom and the ends of each knot being pulled down while cutting the yarn. If you are standing at the top end, the rug will look markedly lighter than looking at it from the “bottom” end. After weaving the bottom rows of kilim (flat weave), the weaver cuts the warps from the loom, making the fringe.

2. Learn the Lingo Before you begin your search, it helps to know some terms identifying the parts of a rug so you can describe what you seek. The main background of the carpet is called the field. When you go shopping, have an idea of your preferred field and borders colors, or bring fabric samples or pillows with you. Many rugs have a diamond‐shaped or round motif in the middle called a central medallion. If your furniture will be placed asymmetrically on the rug, you may prefer a rug that has an all‐over design.

3. Shop ”til you Drop Before you go shopping, measure your space and bring a diagram of the room with you. From the exact dimensions of the room, determine the rug size by subtracting two to three feet of floor to show on each side. After you”ve seen many rugs, your favorite types will become apparent. See as many of them as you can and get to know their price range. For the most part, new rugs are sold by the square foot; antique rugs are sold by the piece. Rugs of the same type will vary in price due to their differences in color balance and quality of design, but prices for the same type of rug should not vary more than 20%. If it”s not obvious why one rug is more expensive than another, ask!

4. Fall in Love Don”t buy a rug until you find one you love. Examine it carefully, keeping in mind that hand‐made items inherently have inconsistencies. Has it been sheared evenly? (Are the cut pile ends smooth?) Are the colors balanced? Do they blend harmoniously? That bright color that stands out now may not seem as appealing after a while, and may detract from its value should you want to sell the rug in the future.

5. Buy for Decorative Value Buy a new rug because you love the way it looks. Its decorative appeal and usefulness will last for many years. A new rug, as opposed to an antique, should not be considered a money‐making investment because a new one of the same type will probably be available in the future.

6. Antiques are Investments A substantial number of the Persian rugs currently in this country are antiques (over 70 years old). As time passes, they become more rare and valuable due to the graceful aging process and to the fact that antiques were almost always one‐of‐a‐type. Therefore, antiques can be considered “investments”. But before you buy, know what you”re getting. Many new rugs today are made to look like antiques, and it can be difficult to tell the difference. Be certain you can trust your dealer. Check for signs of repairs such as patches, usually more visible on the back of the rug. Repairs that have been expertly done are barely visible and do not affect About Us Products Contact 05.10.2015 Ten Tips for Buying an Carpet http://www.haskul.com.tr/en/article/23­ten­tips­for­buying­an­carpet 2/3 Read 509 times Tweet 0 the value nearly as much as those which are obviously a “defect”. Missing borders and any other needed restoration should be reflected in the price.

7. Healthy Wool Feels Good Cool moist climates with good grazing help sheep to produce superior, long staple, lustrous wool. So it follows that New Zealand and Tibetan carpet wools are some of the best in the world. Ask where the wool came from, and feel it. It should be soft and smooth (not dry and brittle). But beware! If a new rug is too soft and shiny, suspect inferior wool that was chemically treated (as sometimes found in inexpensive Chinese carpets).

8. Evaluate theFineness and Density of the Knots Knot density (for strength) and fineness (for clear design definition) are important indicators of quality for which some countries use different terms. To test knot density, push your fingers down to the base of the pile; if the knots feel tightly packed, as in Bidjars, the rug will be extremely durable. To determine fineness, compare the backs of different carpets. Each “bump” is a knot. Small knots allow for well‐defined curves and fine lines in the pattern, but you”ll also pay a premium for them. Pakistani rugs are referred to in knot count per square inch horizontally by vertically. (16/18 quality is a fine quality, 12/12 a lower quality). New Chinese rugs are measured in lines (warps) per 10 cm. of wefts. Indian rugs are measured in terms of warps per inch by wefts per 10 cm.: 5/40, 9/54, 12/60, 14/70. Most others are described in terms of knots per square inch. You’ll find Persian rugs from Tabrizes at 400 knots (very fine) to Herizes at 50 knots (coarse) and Tibetans from 60 to 120 knots per square inch. Keep in mind that in bold geometric designs knot count is less important than in detailed florals.

9. Try the Rug at Home First The lighting and character of your room will affect the look of the rug. Reputable dealers will allow you to take the rug home for a day or two. Make sure you like the result in daylight as well as at night before you make a final decision.

10. Choose Your Source Wisely Choose a store that has been in business in your area for many years. Trustworthy, well‐run businesses endure. The best dealers will show you a sampling of everything available today, and will recommend the best type of rug for your purpose and budget. Be wary of stores that go out of business and pop up years later in a different location. They may not be around later when you need them. And don”t be fooled by huge markdowns at customs auctions and going‐out‐of‐business sales. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
