Wool Carpet
Many of the synthetic flooring manufacturers would have you believe that wool carpet with jute backing is not as durable as the products they make. This is simply untrue. In fact, wool carpeting has a “useful” life of 20-25 years before it needs to be replaced. Typical synthetic residential carpets will need to be replaced about every 7 years. The synthetic carpets do not wear out per se, they just “ugly” out. Meaning they are no longer aesthetically pleasing to look at. They will however stay around in a landfill for an extremely longtime. Some estimates are that they will be around at least 10,000 years. Durable materials (wool carpeting) require less frequent replacement, generate less waste, and may also realize lower long-term costs. Having such a long useful life will reduce the cost per year as well the carpeting’s impact on the environment.
