How to remove stains from carpet?
Carpets are constructed from different materials including a range of synthetic fibres, pure wool carpet and synthetic/wool blends. Therefore, it is important to consult the manufacturer’s care and maintenance guidelines before attempting to remove stains from your carpet.
Carpets are a long term investment in your home, so it pays to treat them with care and pay prompt attention to any spills. If the stain is fresh you may be able to remove the stain by careful blotting and use of a damp cloth with a cleaning agent recommended by the carpet manufacturer.
Depending on the stain’s origins and how ingrained it is, a professional carpet cleaner is the safest method of deep carpet cleaning without damaging the carpet or causing colour loss. There are commercial carpet stain removers on the market which should be used with caution. It is wise to test any stain removing product in an inconspicuous area first.
The highly experienced, knowledgeable and helpful team at your local Carpet Court store are happy to provide advice regarding all aspects of carpet cleaning.
How often should you vacuum carpet?
Some pile types are more likely to trap daily dust and dirt particles than others, and some homes have a lot more foot traffic than others, so the regularity with which you should vacuum depends on your carpet and lifestyle.
If you have pets, frequent vacuuming is recommended to prevent pet hairs from becoming lodged deep in the fibres of your synthetic or wool carpet. Young children can also be hard on carpets, as can households with active teens.
To maintain the fresh appearance and longevity of your carpet cleaning with a thorough vacuum at least once per week is recommended, with more regular vacuuming as the need arises.
