How to keep your carpet looking brand new

17 February 2021

Our carpets come with a minimum of a 5-year wear guarantee , but you’ll still have to take care of it. Keep your carpet looking brand new with some of our top recommendations.

Vacuum cleaning a dirty blue carpet

Take off your shoes

The kids have been playing in the park, dad has just got home from the building site and mum has just finished walking the dog. Can you imagine all the dirt that is on their shoes? Now can you imagine all that dirt being grounded into the carpet? I know , not a pleasant thought. To stop this from happening remember that taking your shoes off at the door will  be better to your floor. Stick to this and your carpet will stay clean for longer.

Vacuuming regularly

Vacuuming regularly is a must for every carpet, to get all the dirt, dust and crumbs out of the fibres. You should vacuum your carpet at least once a week and when doing so, go slowly in those heavy traffic areas. By doing this the vacuum will have enough time to capture up all the dirt. 

Give your carpet some protection

Putting down a rug or a runner in those heavy traffic areas in the house will protect your carpet from being worn down and getting dirty easily. We have a massive range of rugs and runners in various sizes and colours, so you will be sure to find one that meets your décor.

Leave it to the professionals

Sometimes it's best to leave it to the professionals. It's advisable that you get your carpet deep cleaned at least once a year. A professional carpet cleaner will be able to get out all  the dirt out that a regular vacuum cannot, leaving your carpet looking brand new.

Clean spills as soon as they happen

If you happen to spill anything on your carpet, it's essential that you clean it up immediately. The longer you leave a stain the more time you are giving it to set in, which in essence will make it harder to clean. Tackle that stain straight away by gently dabbing the stain with a damp cloth or paper towel. Remember never to scrub, as this will make the stain go deeper and tougher to get out.
