Here at Carpet Trends, we like to provide our customers with the necessary information for carpet care after the installation. Regular carpet cleaning is essential to maintain the appearance of your wool carpet. Use a good vacuum, preferably one that is upright and has an adjustable beater bar, and make sure that the beater bar is not worn. Remember, your wool carpet will shed immediately after installation. This is normal and the shedding will stop within a short period of time.
