Warm, soft, sensuous and cosy, carpet has long been recognised as providing that special welcome. As well as adding beauty to your home, it also has numerous practical benefits.

Carpet maintenance

The more care you take of your carpet, the longer it will look good and the longer it will last. Vacuum your carpet regularly and certainly at least once a week. Heavy traffic areas should be vacuumed daily.

vacuumingMany new carpets ‘fluff’ initially. Don’t panic – this is perfectly normal! A new carpet should be vacuumed daily.

Remember that you do need to look after your vacuum cleaner as well. Belts and brushes or beater bars need to be in good condition and correctly adjusted for height and most importantly, filters and dust bags need to be emptied regularly.

As to what vacuum cleaner to use, for cut pile carpets, an upright with a beater bar brush is recommended or cylinder vacuums with a turbo head attachment. For loop pile carpets, a suction only cleaner is preferred. Vacuum cleaners are now available that incorporate high levels of exhaust air filtration, such as HEPA filters. We strongly recommend these if you have pets or a respiratory condition.
