 You can also rely on Eco Interior Maintenance Services to clean and treat your wool carpets on-site. We are a wool-safe approved service provider.

We observe standards recommended by the UK Woolsafe Organization (www.woolsafe.org), as described in these documents:

Low in pH levels, their approved professional carpet care products have been tested, and they meet or exceed strict environmental DfE guidelines (EPA’s Design for the Environment).

Spot Cleaning for Wool

Look for Woolsafe Approved Spot Removers. Not all spot treatment products are eco-friendly. You may need specialty products to remove stubborn stains. But ask the professionals first before you use yourself.
