Do you need a special vacuum cleaner for wool carpets?

A great-looking carpet is one that gets vacuumed regularly, ideally every day. If your vacuum has a rotating brush roller, such as a SEBO , that’s even better. Take it slowly so the vacuum has enough time to clean from deep in the tufts, and concentrate on well-trodden areas like stairs, hallways and in front of chairs.

Axminster Carpets

Axminster carpets are easy to clean.

The good news is a wool carpet is naturally resistant to dirt. Wool fibres make it harder for dirt particles to stick, so they’re easier to clean and keep their colour longer. However accidents happen. Whatever the spill, remember:
• Deal with it quickly so it’s less likely to stain.
• Don’t rub, or you’ll damage the yarn.
• Don’t use salt or white wine on a red wine spill.
• Work from the outside inwards to limit the affected area.
• Use a cleaner designed for wool, working it in with a brush, sponge or cloth, then rinsing.
• When you’ve finished, blot thoroughly and brush the pile in the right direction.
• If you’re in any doubt, call a professional carpet cleaner.

Think about wear and tear.

The position of your furniture will create areas that are more or less trodden on than others, so if your room is big enough, try to move things around occasionally. It’ll make you see your room in a whole new light too!
Stair carpets can get a lot of wear and shifting them from time to time can really help, you could order a little extra so you can replace worn areas if you need to. If your carpet runs right up to an external door, use a mat to catch dirt and grit on its way in. Always take off shoes with grips, like trainers, as they can tear the pile.

So, which SEBO vacuum is recommended?

Axminster Carpets suggest using a SEBO vacuum cleaner with an adjustable rotating brush roller height for their carpets to effectively remove the maximum amount of dirt. The SEBO X4 upright vacuum cleaner is ideal for cut pile whilst the SEBO K3 Premium barrel and Felix Premium upright with delicate brush roller (5010GE - Optional Accessory) are ideal for loop pile. Using a SEBO on your new, wool carpet will ensure that they stay beautiful longer, while providing essential carpet care.
