Our friends at Stanton Carpet have put together this very useful and informative guide for cleaning and maintaining woven and tufted wools. "Maintaining your quality purchase will repay you by keeping its beauty for many years." Please keep this guide handy for your wool cleaning reference.
As in many family-run businesses, a newer, younger family member eventually joins the ranks to offer fresh, contemporary ideas, lighten the loads of the "elders," and carry on the legacy of its founder. Meet Stephen Blake, first born son of Kevin Blake, Owner of Action Carpet & Floor Covering! As a new Co-Owner, Stephen wears many hats. He meets potential and existing customers to identify their particular needs, quotes jobs, assists sales staff, helps promote the business and services, offers ideas to help grow the company, lifts heavy things, and isn't afraid to get his hands dirty along with our installers! In addition to all that (and then some) he makes television commercials! Please join me in officially welcoming Stephen Blake as Co-Owner and Heavy Lifter of Action Carpet & Floor Covering. Please watch his and his dad's commercials:

Among so many other services, we also provide Mold/Mildew Remediation! We are certified to inspect for and remediate mold issues in any part of your home. Call us for a free quote.
The first step for the home owner is to determine where the water is entering and make the necessary repairs to prevent further water and moisture from entering your home. Once all repairs are made, Action will come in and seal off the affected area to eliminate exposure to other areas of the house. Properly outfited in a protective hazmat suit, our licensed and certified technician will use a bleach-based solution to scrape, scrub and fog the mold away. All removed mold, cleaning materials and unsalvageable construction and wall/floor covering will be carefully encapsulated and removed from the house for proper disposal.
We work closely with insurance companies to rid your home of potentially toxic mold. Below are the Specific Recommendations listed on the CDC website for keeping mold out of buildings:

YES! There IS such a thing as affordable wool, and we have it!
Wool carpets are typically more expensive than synthetic fiber carpets for a variety of reasons. Wool is a natural product which comes from the coat of sheep and the majority of the wool sold for carpet comes from abroad -- New Zealand, Australia and UK. The advantage of wool carpet is that its durability is superior to anything synthetic. It has natural stain resistant properties, is naturally fire retardant, has no harmful gasses, is environmentally friendly and is super soft under foot. The cost of wool per square foot starts at around $8-$9 per square foot installed with pad and can go as high or higher than $25 per square foot at Action Carpet, although designer wools can easily exceed that number.
We were given GREAT PRICING by Masland Carpets for the next three months on two of their popular traditional wool styles: Bedford Tweed and Helena. We are extending these great prices to our customers through August 1, 2018! Both styles are $6.69/sf installed with pad (Reg. $8.00/sf) -- the BEST PRICE we've EVER been able to offer on 100% wool carpet! These styles also make PERFECT area rugs! Come into our Simsbury, CT showroom and check out these affordable wools before August 1st. We carry the full line of Masland nylon and wool carpet.
You bought new replacement wall-to-wall carpet for your living room and now you're wondering when you should have it professionally cleaned and how much it will cost. Action Carpet & Floor Covering offers professional carpet cleaning services that we are SUPER proud of! Our expert floor cleaning technician, Tony, is one of the most meticulously thorough guys we've ever met. If he can't get the stain out (and it's NOT EVER for lack of trying) NO ONE can get the stain out. Tony recommends that you have your carpets cleaned at least annually, more often if you have pet stains and odors.
Tony cleans carpets with a truck mounted high pressure hot water extraction system. He himself is VERY sensitive to chemical emmisions so he only uses the most effective cleaning agents with the most minimal odors/irritants. His cleaning method will leave your carpets clean, bright, fresh smelling and looking brand new again. Tony will place protectors on the legs of any furniture that has been left in the room to be cleaned around, and the slight dampness that remains in the carpet will dry quickly.
Our minimum charge for carpet cleaning is $165 which covers approximately 400 square feet. (i.e. two 12X12 rooms, a hallway and one set of stairs)
Tony can also clean your area rugs and upholstery while he's there! The charges are as follows:
Couch: $125-$135 depending on size
Love seat: $89
Wing chair or recliner: $60
Dining room chairs: $25/chair
Area rugs: $2.00/sq. ft. -- min. charge is $25
