Carpet Cleaning Tips
There are many methods of carpet cleaning and over the years we have looked at all of these and selected the best. We offer both carpet steam cleaning and carpet dry cleaning but for most carpets we would recommend our "STEAM Clean" and for carpets needing a more intensive clean the double action "STEAM Clean PLUS" may be required.
Tips 1. The best tip we can offer to keep your carpets looking good is regular vacuuming using a vacuum of sufficient power to exctact dirt from the fibres. Soil can damage the fibres permanently if allowed to remain in the pile and should be removed as often as possible by vacuuming. This will not only stop the fibre abrasion, but help eliminate dust mites and control allergies. A good and practical method is to vacuum the areas that receive the most traffic, such as hallways, stairs and paths in the home that are used most regularly. Vacuum the entire carpet a minimum of twice per week for the best results.
Tips 2. Another great tip for keeping your carpet looking good is to use matting to your advantage. Door mats are easily cleaned and much cheaper to replace than carpets. Use them in areas of heavy traffic such as doorways and the main entrance to your home to remove the soil from peoples feet before it gets on your carpet.
Tips 3. If you discover a spot or stain on your carpet then please donít reach for a bottle of household cleaning chemicals. Firstly, identify the staining and blot to remove as much as possible and then call the experts.
Often household products can set the stain to leave a permanent mark on the carpet. More importantly, some household products contain bleaching agents that remove or chemically change the carpet dyes. This can never be repaired and overzealous, untrained use of bleaches will ruin your carpet. Scrap or blot the dirt or stain then call the experts
