Carpet Maintenance Knowledge

 

To protect the investment made in your carpet, it's important to follow prescribed maintenance periodically to keep it looking and performing at its best. Cleaning at regular intervals - rather than waiting until the carpet is heavily soiled - actually extends its life. And when carpet life is increased, so is the return on your investment.

 
 

Properly maintained carpets enhance the appearance and atmosphere of interiors either commercial or residential. A well-maintained carpet absorbs dirt, airborne dust particles, fumes and noise. It even makes the indoor environment more hygienic. Maintenance makes sense. Maintaining the beauty of wool carpet is exceptionally easy - in fact, a lot easier than most people think. A simple maintenance program including regular, interim and periodic cleanings will keep your carpet looking as good as the day it was installed!

 
     
  Regular Maintenance  
 

The simplest and most frequent maintenance involves vacuuming and spot removal, as well as preventive measures.

 
 

Vacuuming :- Regular and thorough vacuuming once a week (more often in heavy traffic areas) is an economical and effective way to remove soil and dirt particles before they become embedded into the pile of the carpet. For best results, empty your vacuum bag when half full.

 
 

. An upright vacuum with a beater bar/brush is best for cut pile carpet.

 
 

. A suction-only vacuum is recommended for loop pile Berber carpet to prevent excessive fuzzing.

 
     
 
Preventive Measures:-
  • Place absorbent mats at entrances to your home; change or launder when these mats become dirty.

  • Regularly change filters in your heating and air conditioning systems.

  • Clean traffic lanes and in front of frequently used chairs periodically with an absorbent powder.

  • Do not apply stain repellent treatments that contain any silicone, because they tend to accelerate carpet soiling. Note: some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.

 
  Interim Maintenance  
 

Occasionally, more comprehensive cleaning is needed to restore color and appearance. Impregnated absorbent compound - inert powders impregnated with a mixture of cleansing agents and solvents - can be brushed into the carpet pile on an interim basis to absorb dirt from the carpet fiber.

 
  Periodic Maintenance  
 

Thorough cleaning is required periodically to remove the deepest soil. There are many deep cleaning methods you can use to ensure the beauty and life of a wool carpet or rug. When having your wool carpet professional cleaned, use a reputable company and check references. Or click on Retail Locations and consult your nearest retailer!

 
     
  Cleaning  
 

The kids...the dog...a clumsy party guest. Accidents happen. In fact, removal of spots and spills is one of the most crucial areas of carpet maintenance. When anything is dropped or spilled, quick response with the proper cleaning material can save the day...and your carpet! When accidents happen:

  • Blot up liquids with white paper towels or absorbent cloth; scoop up solids with the end of a knife or spoon.

  • Treat the spot according to the cleaning instruction chart below.

  • Apply spot removal agent to clean towel or cloth, not directly to the spot. Use small quantities at a time. Always work inwards from the edge to prevent spreading. Do not rub, as this may cause the spot to spread or distort the pile. Do not over-wet the carpet pile.

  • Afterwards, blot as dry as possible with clean towel.

 
  Cleaning Agents For Spot Removal  
 
Detergent Solution

Mix one teaspoon of clear dish washing liquid or detergent powder (containing no bleaches or strong alkalies) with one cup of hot water. This solution must be well rinsed with clear water.

Ammonia Solution

Mix one tablespoon clear ammonia (3% solution) with one half cup water. This solution must be neutralized with vinegar solution.
