Frequently asked questions

If you've got a carpet or flooring question, then we'll do our best to answer. Here are our most frequently asked...
What is the difference between a wool carpet and a manmade carpet?
Manmade carpet offers a lot more protection against stains and spillages where a wool carpet will stain if damaged. Wool carpet however will tread and wear better than a manmade carpet. Bleach can be used on Manmade carpet without fading the colour but not a wool carpet.
