Caring for your Carpets and Rugs

Very little equipment is required to maintain a carpet well. A good vacuum cleaner is essential as well as a small box of supplies – including carpet shampoo, dry cleaning fluid and clean absorbent cloths or paper tissues to remove spills.

 

 

Regular cleaning will extend the life of your carpet and maintain its good appearance.
Vacuum clean regularly and thoroughly to remove gritty dirt that can damage the fibres.
Deal with spillages as soon as possible, preferably the moment they occur.

When your carpet or rug reaches a stage where it could do with a really good cleaning, you can either do the job yourself, or you can call in a professional carpet cleaning company.

If you are considering cleaning the carpet or rug yourself make sure to use qualified products for the job.

For example, WOOLSAFE-approved carpet care products have been independently and scientifically tested and are safe and effective for cleaning and maintaining all types of carpets and rugs, especially wool and woolblends.

Never use detergents such as dish washing liquids, soaps or other cleaners recommended for general household use. Although they may clean your carpet satisfactorily they will almost certainly cause problems such as rapid re-soiling, colour bleeding or other damage to the pile or backing of the carpet.

Before starting ANY wet cleaning ALWAYS test the carpet in an inconspicuous place for colour fastness. Also check, if possible, any maintenance leaflet that came with the carpet for the manufacturer’s recommendations regarding wet cleaning.

ITo get a really expert job done entrust the work to a carpet cleaning company.
