Pollution is real, and with each passing season, it reminds us of its existence more and more aswe desperately start a search for our tissues and hankies, anti-allergic tabs, and steamer. What if we told you a rug could actually solve this problem of yours in an instant?

If you’ve been a rug owner even once, you know how rugs make your home look visually appealing and improve the aesthetics of your ambiance. Apart from keeping your home and your feet warm, rugs can also keep your air healthier and safer. So if you want to know the ‘how’ of this positive impact that a rug has on your home, read on, and get that beautiful rug that has been on your mind home.
We know by now you just want to know the carpet we have been talking about. So let’s get talking right to the point- it is wool. Yes, sounds like something so simple right? Because it is just something that has been around all this while. However, what most people don’t know about is that wool carpets have scientifically been proven to keep your indoor air cleaner. No matter where you place your rug at home, or in office, or in the hallway, an addition of a rug is definitely an add on to all the measures you’re already taking to keep your home safe from the harmful dust and debris in the air that you are unable to see.
Wool carpets greatly enhance indoor air quality, according to AgResearch experts, by fast absorbing the common pollutants formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, often known as volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Many popular household goods, including cleaners and disinfectants, air fresheners, printers, and even home furnishings, can emit VOCs. Wool not only neutralises these toxins faster and more thoroughly than synthetic carpet fibres, but it also does not re-emit them, even when it is heated.
Wool's inherent organic nature makes it a viable and a sustainable choice for people wishing to furnish their home. It is 100% natural, renewable, and biodegradable. Wool, in addition to carpets and fashionwear, is playing an increasingly important part in home design. The result for this is the fast development in research, manufacturing techniques, and design creativity. The lifestyle and décor industry is seeing a plethora of home design accents that are being produced with wool, taking a whole new take on sustainably crafted artisanal. Starting from curtains, bedding, lighting, artwork, to decorative objects, wool can easily help us with most of the major elements of our home décor. Wool is the definitely the right choice for any interior because of its rich finish, easy maintenance, and beneficial health characteristics.
