WoolSafe Approved: What It Means and Why It Matters

In 1791, William Sprague started the first woven carpet mill in the United States. His chosen carpet material? Wool. Although synthetic materials replaced wool’s popularity in the 1950s, wool carpet remains on the market, especially for buyers who are shopping for sustainable carpet materials.  Many imported rugs and carpets are woven from wool for durability. Because wool needs to be carefully maintained, the WoolSafe Organisation was born.

About the WoolSafe Organisation

The WoolSafe Certification has been widely recognized throughout the world as the standard for carpet care for decades. The WoolSafe Organisation promotes best cleaning and maintenance practices for all carpet and rug materials, not just wool. The products they certify are considered to be among the best in the industry.

WoolSafe Approved products

milliCare has its own set of cleaning products, many WoolSafe Approved. In order for products to pass the certification process, they must pass a litany of performance and chemical requirements, including specific pH levels that will not damage carpet fibers and effectiveness that exceeds industry standards. Our WoolSafe Approved products are safe for carpets that require careful maintenance, like wool.

Why WoolSafe matters to you
