At The Carpet Shed, all our products are manufactured to a high standard. Keeping your carpet in pristine condition requires some simple maintenance.
The best way to maintain the appearance and quality of your carpet is to take measures to prevent or minimise damage to it. When installing your new floor, ensure you have a good quality underlay. Doing this will increase the life expectancy of your carpet and keep it looking better for longer.
A great way to preserve your flooring is to place a doormat outside your main door. Thoroughly clean your shoes on the doormat before you enter your home and step onto your carpet.
To keep your carpet looking brand new, you need to vacuum it frequently, especially in areas that are subjected to a lot of traffic. When an area is used often, it means soil particles will find their way beneath the surface. Vacuuming frequently will prevent these soil particles from getting deep in the fibres.
Steam cleaning is a great way to clean beneath the surface of your floor. It should be done by a professional, approximately once every two years, to ensure your flooring is kept in optimal condition.
While most of the carpets we stock are made to be stain and soil resistant, but accidents do happen and you will inevitably need to clean your carpet of a small or large stain. Prompt attention should be paid when these accidents occur so that your carpet can look good and last for years.
