Carpet Care Tips

Regular Vacuuming and Cleaning
cleanstairsRegular Vacuuming will keep your carpets looking their best. A good tip is to rake your carpet prior to using the vacuum cleaner. This will loosen the dirt, pet hairs and raise the pile, making the vacuuming far more effective.

Stubborn Spills and Stains
Act quickly to stop the stain spreading or penetrating the carpet fibres. Scrape up solids with a spoon or palette knife, always working towards the centre of a spillage to prevent spreading the stain. Blot up liquids with a clean white cloth or paper towel – never rub.

Most stains that are allowed to dry overnight will become more difficult to remove. This also applies to hot tea and especially coffee, as they become heat set. So whenever possible always deal with any stains as soon as they happen.
