Wool or synthetic

I'm not talking about Jersey's here. Carpets. Been looking for new carpets recently so I asked the sales person why wool or synthetic. He came out with the biggest load of bull I ever heard. Apparently - round here people have been having a lot of trouble with moths eating peoples wool carpets. That's right moths eating peoples carpet out from beneath their feet, practically as fast as you can walk across them. Well they must be some pretty big moths. I reckon there's worse things to worry about if moths are that voracious. Careful riding at night or you may get taken out by one of those monster carpet munchers going for your front light.
And solve the damp problem as well: they don't like it too dry.

Do you believe everything you read on the internet? :roll:
If possible go to a smaller retailer as the big ‘sheds’ tend to be a bit hit and miss with the knowledge they have.
It was a family run business of 50 years that came out with it.

Since we've been buying carpet we've always gone for for 80/20. 1930s semi with suspended wooden floors. Used to smell a bit damp when moving furniture but we've never had anything eating the carpets. Now I've fitted insulation between the ground floor joists and carted away the 3 tons of rubble a previous owner dumped beneath the floor it's better ventilated, warmer and drier.
