Carpet care – our top tips!

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.

  1. Vacuum  your  carpets  at  least  twice  a  week. Up to  80%  of  carpet  dirt  is  loose  and removable with regular vacuuming!
  2. Rotate your furniture occasionally. This helps to prevent premature carpet wear and soiling in regular traffic areas of your house.
  3. 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!
  4. Finally, as mentioned at the beginning, we recommend, you have your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned at least once a year.
