Regular Vacuuming
We guess you’ve got the message by now. The most important part of carpet care is to vacuum as often as possible. If not daily, it must be a minimum of once a week. Vacuuming removes the gritty particles that get carried in on the bottom of shoes. It prevents it from settling within the fibres. If you’ve ever wondered why a carpet goes flat, it’s because the dirt and grit get trodden in by foot traffic. Lack of regular vacuuming lets the dust remain deep in the carpet fibre and damages the fibres. Sometimes it may be the carpet fibre sliced or get damaged. Regular vacuuming helps remove pet hairs, sand particles, minor bugs, and skin flakes. It protects it from sinking into the bottom of your carpet. You probably weren’t aware, but your carpet acts like a filter collecting all the tiny particles that float around in the air. Regular vacuuming keeps the home ambience a little healthier.

Clean the spills immediately
Spills or accidents happen regularly, and no one can stop them! But it’s vital to clean up the spillage ASAP. Leaving the spots or stains to sit will become permanent. If you have spilled on your carpet, clean them up immediately and dry them out as soon as possible because the liquid may permeate through the carpet fibres and into the padding below. It may be difficult to remove or sometimes impossible to remove. Try to remove stains or spills using clean cold water. First, remember never to rub the stain as this will spread it. Instead, blot with a white paper towel or cloth. In the event of pet ‘accidents’, it’s best to call our carpet cleaning professionals in Hammersmith. We have the necessary chemicals and cleaning techniques to eliminate spill marks and smells.

Book a professional carpet cleaning
Many people don’t realise the importance of hiring a professional, certified, and competent carpet cleaner to give their carpet the best shape. Mould and mildew love nothing better than a warm and damp environment. Therefore, there is a reasonable risk that it will begin to grow mould. If you don’t take immediate action, it could destroy your carpet, forcing you to replace it. Additionally, carpets can draw tiny creatures like bed bugs, fleas, and dust mites. Fleas, which can spread to people, typically dwell on pets that pick them up when strolling through tall grass or other animals. Dander attracts microscopic pests like ticks, fleas, and dust mites, which, once word gets out, turn it into a food source for them and your carpets. Although routine cleaning won’t eliminate all these allergens in your carpet, it will help reduce the amount of dander. The answer is taking the service of our hot water extraction carpet cleaning in services SW6.

Re-apply carpet protector after cleaning
Many carpets these days are pre-treated with a protective coating. It resists spills & stains. However, the protective coating wears off over time due to chemicals used in cleaning or through general wear and tear. This will cause your carpet to be susceptible to permanent stains. Ask your carpet cleaner if they can apply a protective coating for you. It may cost you a bit but saves you from significant replacement and cleaning expenses.
