For information on the dangers of conventional, chemical-laden carpets, including wool and recycled carpets made with synthetic adhesives, see links below.

Sustainability / Recycling / Composting

Nature's Carpet takes a proactive approach to environmental issues. Their carpets are derived from fully renewable resources, and can be absorbed back into the earth once their life as flooring is completed. Conventional carpets may be made with a small percentage of recycled content, with the remainder being synthetic materials treated with chemicals which do not biodegrade. Nature's Carpet comes from and can be returned to the earth.

When you replace your old synthetic carpet please consider recycling; or composting if it's made of a natural fiber. 3½ to 4 billion pounds of carpet is discarded every year, which accounts for 2% of all solid waste by volume. Two percent may not seem like a large amount, but since carpets are just one of many thousands of waste products that end up in landfills, it represents a huge problem. Some recyclers accept used nylon carpeting; and depending on the fiber and condition some will pick-up and/or recycle it at no charge. Please see http://carpetrecovery.org/waste.php to find a recycler near you and/or try searching your local and state websites. To find a composter for your old natural fiber carpeting, see the national database of commercial composters at http://www.findacomposter.com.

Why Wool Carpet?

The carpet has arrived and is installed! I am so happy...it's very bright and beautiful and looks amazing! I couldn't be happier! Thank you for all your help and for allowing me a normal home in the midst of my chemical sensitivity!!!

—Kathy R., St Charles, IL

Wool is a rapidly renewable resource. Once a wool carpet's long-life expires, the product will biodegrade and add nitrogen to the soil. Also, it takes considerably less energy to produce wool flooring than it does to produce bamboo or many other synthetic products. Wool is also soft on the feet, quiet, easy to clean and durable. Most wool carpets will last 20-30 years. Nylon carpet is typically replaced in 5-7 years due to staining and wear in traffic areas. Note that most wool carpet is made with toxic chemical adhesives, synthetic backing and pesticides. Nature's Carpet and Earth Weave are the only carpets we have found that are truly non-toxic.

Shipping

Shipping of Nature's Carpet and padding to a commercial location is usually charged at $1.00 per square yard for orders of at least 25 square yards, with a minimum shipping charge of $80. Residential delivery is $100 higher. Note that most carpet installers have access to a commercial location to which we can ship your carpet...this saves you money and is easier and more convenient for you. If you are ordering less than 25 sq. yd. we will need to get a shipping quote. To purchase and/or get a shipping quote, click the "buy" link above, put the quantity you need in your shopping cart, fill out your destination info and submit the form. We will reply with a link to view the shipping cost and complete the purchase. Note that clearance items do not qualify for the minimum shipping charge; we will need to get a shipping quote from the factory.

Installation

To find a certified floor covering installer in your area, go to www.cfi-installers.org. Other good referral sources are the Better Business Bureau, Angie's List and Yelp; as well as local home builders, architects and remodeling contractors. If you don't know your square yardage send us a floorplan with the dimensions of each room you want carpeted and we can provide a "ballpark" estimate. This service is provided for estimating purposes only. It is VERY important to have an installer measure prior to ordering to make sure he will commit to doing the job with the quantity you order. To make sure your installed carpet remains as pure as possible, ask your installer to use a low-VOC seam tape. One that we've found can be found here: http://www.premiertapeproducts.com/tapes.html (scroll down the page to a link to the MSDS).

Cleaning Guidelines

Nature's Carpet loop pile carpets should be vacuumed only with a suction head, and not with beater bars, except to remove surface build-up of wool pills, should they occur. Cut pile carpet should be vacuumed with beater bars, as they will revitalize the carpet and reduce felting. Nature's Carpet's wool has a natural, built-in resistance to soilage, and naturally repels water-borne stains if the spilled liquid is removed promptly when the spill occurs. For full cleaning, professional wool carpet service is recommended using hot water extraction (aka steam cleaning) to minimize chemical contact, making sure to use as little water as possible. See detailed cleaning brochure.

Warranty

Seven year limited warranty. See FAQ page for details.
