Organic is quite the buzzword in our vocabulary today, isn’t it? Of course, it isn’t without good reason. We should surely be aware of what we are putting into our bodies and exposing our families to. Do you know that there are even organic carpet options? Organic carpet would consist of non-treated, natural, renewable fibers. A few examples of such fibers include seagrass, cotton, jute, and untreated wool. The most widely available is organic wool carpet, thus we will focus specifically on its attributes, beneficial or otherwise.

As you know, we at CLEANPRO use an environmentally friendly, non-hazardous method of carpet cleaning. You may choose to take it a step further, and select an organic carpet. In order to ensure you are an informed consumer, let us discuss both the benefits and some possible setbacks to organic carpeting.

Let’s start with the cons and work our way to the pros, shall we? 

SETBACKS

Not to deter you from taking the organic option, please be aware that there are some possible setbacks to your organic wool carpet.
-Wool, particularly organic wool, is a more expensive option
-Insects, specifically moths, are attracted to wool
-Wool can cause an allergic reaction in some people, if you have a wool allergy already, we advise you not to go with this option
-It will stain more easily with wine and other acidic liquids

BENEFITS

Organic wool, taken from untreated or naturally treated sheep, has numerous beneficial qualities.
-It is naturally resistant to mold and mildew, however this does not mean it is invulnerable
-Wool fibers help to regulate temperatures, providing a cooler environment
-If your organic wool carpet is naturally dyed, the color will hold well
-It is soft and easy to clean
-Stating the obvious here, it is environmentally friendly
