Wool carpeting is one of the greatest carpet choices you can make for your home in the Concord, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, & Martinez, CA area.
The Natural Carpet
Carpet isn’t often talked about when eco-friendly flooring is discussed, but natural wool carpet is sustainable and a better choice for our Earth than most other carpets. So why choose wool carpeting?
Natural wool carpets offer great insulation. Have you ever worn a wool sweater or wool clothing? Well, it’s kind of like that! Wool under your feet will help keep you warm.
Carpet wool is durable. It’s harder to damage and easier to clean than some other carpet choices. Part of this is due to wool being water-resistant and stain-resistant. If you spill water on wool it doesn’t instantly soak it up, giving you time to clean your carpet before the liquid does damage or settles in.
Wool carpeting is a renewable resource. Sheep are sheared in the summer and then by winter they’re nice and warm again with their wool grown back. That renewability means your carpeting is environmentally friendly because sheep’s wool grows back so quickly.
Wool wall-to-wall carpet has more options than you might think. When you think of a sheep’s wool, you might think your only option for color is sheep-white. However, wool can be dyed many colors, and we can help you find the right one to match your taste and décor.
Wool carpeting is also hypoallergenic, resistant to fire, and a natural humidifier due to its ability to absorb moisture without damaging its fibers. If you think a wool carpet is the right choice for you, call Floor Coverings International Concord for a free design consultation. We’ll help in every way we can!
