Why wool carpets are in most circumstances better than synthetic carpets.

Today we went to a local distributor in the heart of our hometown Newcastle Upon Tyne to see what’s new in the shops, to keep up to date and to see what’s getting sold most.

What we couldn’t believe is that some basic synthetic low weighted carpets are more expensive than wool carpets, and as the professionals we now feel like it’s our job to tell you that in most circumstances Commerical and Domestic WOOL is by far the best value for money due to its amazing natural probabilities. 

We don’t want to bore you too much because we understand there’s more to life than reading about carpets but we also appreciate you as a customer and understand carpets are not cheap so we want to help you to get the most out of your new mega investment!


Wool hides up to 60% of its weight in the soil before you can see it on the surface. 

Wool is naturally fire retardent

Wool is an amazing insulator 

Wool is great at soundproofing

Wool is extremely Hardwearing can bend 30,000 times without damage

Wool is Biodegradable making it eco-friendly

The small cons of wool which can be avoided 

Stains easier (avoided by applying professional stainshield)

Customer Reviews

“Great friendly service and excellent communication throughout. Would use this service again and recommend to friends and family.”

Jayne Jackson

“I had 2 sofa frames and 2 rugs cleaned by Paul Dyson. I could not fault the service and the results. Very courteous, professional and friendly. I also had a couple of stains on another carpet that they offered to do a spot clean at no extra charge. I will definitely use Paul Dyson again, and cannot recommend them highly enough.”

"Paul dyson came and cleaned my mam's carpet today the carpet came up brilliant would recommend these lads to anyone"

Julie Gibson

"Absolutely brilliant service. Pauls son Harry came this morning and throughly cleaned the carpets for me at a rental property in Gateshead. The previous tenant had allowed her cat to soil the carpet do a disgusting level. We have cleaned the house and the final job of cleaning and treating the carpets was down to Harry........all smells are now eradicated and a certificated treatment added to ensure the safety of future tenants.......can't recommend this company higher."
