Cleaning Wool Carpet and Area Rugs

Did you know that choosing a wool carpet or rug for your home is both good news… and sometimes bad?

The good news is choosing wool, which is a high quality fiber but not really that popular because of the higher price, means your carpet or rug will last longer, look better and retain value. Also, unlike a synthetic fiber, wool will not retain a flame and  if it chars, it's fumes won't kill you.  That's why it's always  used to carpet cruise ships and airplanes.
The bad news is choosing wool means you won’t see as much dirt on it, and so you may not vacuum or clean it that often — which means your nice, wool carpet or rug may prematurely wear out.The reason why its fibers hide soils so well is that the fiber looks like a telescopic car antenna under a microscope. So it tends to hide soils in the graduations of the antenna like structure.   Why is that?

Most consumers base their cleaning frequencies on appearance. That can be dangerous for any carpet or rug, or any surface, for that matter. With wool, the physical makeup of the fiber has the characteristic of hiding dirt, especially those tiny, gritty particles that wear on the fibers. You might compare this to putting sand on a piece of Plexiglas and walking on it. The sand will act as an abrasive, damaging the surface.

While wool fibers may damage more quickly than other synthetic fibers, it prevents the build up of static

electricity since wool fibers  like to retain moisture.. 

What you should do is talk to us about professionally  cleaning your wool carpets and area rugs  based on frequency, not appearance. Over the last quarter century,  only a handful or companies has  had more experience that us in expertly cleaning wool carpets and area rugs. So give us a call since we are Hamilton, Princeton and Yardley's most trusted organic wool and area rug cleaner.

Four Dirty MLM Network Marketing Secrets They Don't Want You To Know

1.Lousy Success Rates - Analysis of the the top 12 multilevel marketing companies shows an average success rate of just 0.3%. Since the average success rate of a conventional business is 50%, multilevel marketing should be avoided at all costs. Because you can increase your chance of success starting a conventional business by 200%..

2. A Non-Exclusive Product with an unprotected territory sold to an endless number of people is a recipe for a lot of people working for free or next to nothing.

3. Overpriced And Over-Hyped Products On average, products sold through network marketing cost 500% to 600% more than their store bought counterparts.

4. Deceptive Compensation Plans 99% of the people pushing an opportunity can't explain the compensation plan. That's because its a clever and effective way to steal from the distributor sales force.
Almost every multilevel company does not pay commissions on products sold. Instead, they assign a Point Value (PV) or Commission Value ( CV) to every sale. In many cases, when someone orders a $100 worth of products,  your PV or CV may only be $50 to $80. Then your  PV or CV is subject to "breakage". Breakage occurs in a number of ways but the results are always the same. You end up not being paid on volume generated in your down line because you did not "qualify" to earn commissions through deceptive means.

Based on these facts, network marketing should be avoided like the plague.    


Does Scotchguard Really Work ?

DID YOU KNOW that one of the best ‘feel good’ experiences you can enjoy is having freshly-cleaned carpet or furniture?

And one of the most frustrating experiences you won’t enjoy is when, within just a few days, something like red wine, coffee or tea is spilled on that freshly-cleaned carpet or furniture.

This is not good!

So you feverishly apply all kinds of household cleaning products and scrub in desperation. That spot does look a little better but it is still there. You have an important appointment so you give up. When coming home a few hours later… it has grown! (This is another mystery and you might want to ask your carpet cleaning pro why this happens.)

All of this drama could have been avoided if you had asked for fabric protection when you had your carpet or furniture cleaned. You know, like Scotchgard or Teflon or some of the other products available to consumers.

Yes, fabric protection does cost a little bit more but… it’s worth it!

How does it work?

Fabric protection is quite a mystery to many, but basically what it does is act as a kind of invisible shield that repels most substances that are spilled.

You might compare this to waxing a car. You are providing protection to your paint job by applying an invisible shield, and you know it is working because you can see water beading up on the surface.

Carpet and furniture fabrics need the same type of protection.

Besides the obvious immediate benefit of cleaning up fresh spills, you can rest assured that a protected carpet or piece of furniture is going to last longer because when something is clean, it performs better and increases the lifetime of the fabric.

This doesn’t mean you can skip regular cleaning. Anything that is dirty will wear out prematurely. Fabric protection enhances a good cleaning. It’s an added step that you want for your carpet and furniture in your home.
