Vitrazza Chair Pad

With all the hoopla going on about markets all over the country we decided to take this month off in the way of new products. Don't worry! There is new stuff on order and on its way to us so just hang in there. Plus, by taking this month off it gives us time to reload on styles that we were out of samples on, geniuses aren't we! 

So instead of something new let's add to your selling knowledge and talk about a question that comes up rather frequently regarding wool in offices and chairs rolling around and kicking up the fiber. Well not only did we find a VERY cool one, we added the link to our "Helpful Links" section on our website under the Care and Maintenance section. To save you the time we are also adding the link here crystal clear chair pads that will almost be invisible in protecting your carpet from wear but at the same time not disturbing your aesthetic in your office.

Cleaning Solutions

Well you're guests have all gone home and its time to assess the damage. Click on the link below and learn what our friends at Good Housekeeping have to say. Coffee spills always happen at the most inconvenient time: as you're running out the door, at the end of a long dinner party, or just when you finally sit down to curl up with a book. Good thing Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, is here with advice on how to fight stains fast and get back to your life. The first step is making sure you have all of these products on hand. Liquid dish soap, white vinegar, clean white cloths, and a sponge. Blot up as much of the coffee as you can. Then, mix one tablespoon of liquid dish soap, one tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Using a clean, white cloth, sponge the stain with the mixture. Apply a little bit at a time, blotting frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears. Finally, sponge with cold water and blot dry. In 35 years of selling wool carpet we've been asked plenty about care, if you have something you'd like to know about just let us know and we'll address it.

Wool carpet is best for allergies?

Now most of you have had a customer who comes in and tells you they have allergies and how they wanted a hard surface floor to reduce this? NOT SO FAST MY FIREND! Maybe their carpet was just really dirty, try asking them the last time it was professionally cleaned. That probably means that it's time for NEW CARPET, because according to research by the German Allergy and Asthma Association DAAB eV shows that the use of a carpet can significantly reduce the risk of increased particulate matter in indoor areas, in contrast to a smooth hard surface floor covering. With more people suffering from asthma today it's just one more REALLY GOOD reason to talk about your Unique Carpets Ltd. selection of wool carpeting. 
The high dust-binding capabilities of carpet ensures that dust doesn't swirl as easily through the air as it does on smooth surfaces. Wool carpets bind the fine dust that contains the allergenic mite feces, until the next time you vacuum because of their natural design. The scale like texture grabs onto particulates better that that of a smooth filament yarn. This means those allergy causing contaminants cannot be inhaled, which is why wool floor coverings are particularly suitable for allergy sufferers.
If they still don't believe you, hit them with this little statistic. While the particulate matter content in rooms with hard floors is more than 40 micrograms per square meter, in rooms with carpet it is only 10 or less micrograms per square meter. That would decrease the likelihood of allergy causing contaminants in the air by 75%.
