How do I keep my carpet looking better for longer?
Today’s blog provides some simple carpet care tips, so you can keep your carpets looking better for longer.
People often assume that their carpets and upholstery are clean simply because they look clean, but this is not true! In fact, even carpets and upholstery that look spotless may have collected germs, dust and soil below the surface. To increase the life and appearance of your carpets and upholstery, you should have them professionally cleaned every year, even before you recognise visible surface dirt.
Carpet care – some simple maintenance tips
Tending to the needs of your carpet is a small step towards improving the appearance and health of your home. Below are some handy and simple tips for maintaining your carpets.
- Vacuum your carpets at least twice a week. Up to 80% of carpet dirt is loose and removable with regular vacuuming!
- Rotate your furniture occasionally. This helps to prevent premature carpet wear and soiling in regular traffic areas of your house.
- If you ever attempt to clean your carpet with a rental or home steam cleaner, take great caution! If you don’t remove most of the water, your carpets could easily become an unhealthy environment. High moisture levels can leak through to the carpet back and underlay which could promote the growth of mould and mildew. Furthermore, if not properly rinsed out, the carpet will re soil much quicker!
- Finally, as mentioned at the beginning, we recommend, you have your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned at least once a year.
