Q: How do I keep my carpets looking their best?
A: Taking good care of your carpets will help them look better and last longer.
The most important part is to vacuum your carpets often, ideally 2-3 times a week, especially in the busier areas. This will clear most of the dry soil (dust, grit, fluff, etc.) before it goes too deep into the carpet pile.
In addition, regular professional carpet cleaning will deal with the build-up of dirt and grease that cannot be removed by vacuuming alone.
Q: How often should I have my carpets cleaned by a professional?
A: The guideline for an average household is to have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 months. This will remove not just the visible dirt, but also the invisible germs and odours.
Q: What else can I do to keep my carpets in good shape all year round?
A: These simple tips will help keep your carpets cleaner for longer:
- Vacuum 2-3 times a week
- Keep a strict "no shoes" policy indoors
- Place a non-slip mat or rug by the front door and by the kitchen to catch walked-in dirt and kitchen grease.
Q: How do I clean spillages and other accidents on my carpet?
A: The best thing to do is to immediately scrape solids and/or blot liquids off as much as possible with a clean white cloth or baby wipes, from the outside in, without smearing or scrubbing.
If you cannot remove everything this way, just leave it and call a professional for advice. Do not scrub and do not add anything to the carpet (no cleaning products, no popular remedies) without the advice of a professional.
Don't risk worsening the problem or causing irreversible damage.
