Advice and Hint for Proper Cleaning of Carpet at Home

Home Improvement,Health,Family & Parenting
You've just taken delivery of your new Carpet Right carpet. Here's how to care for your carpet:

It is a common belief that you should not vacuum new carpets immediately after they have been laid. This is not the case and you can, in fact, vacuum straight away.

When your new carpet is fitted you may notice a few single tufts or loose ends standing above the pile. This is quite normal and any loose strands can be trimmed off with a pair of scissors or a suitable knife. Don't pull strands because this will damage your carpet. Your carpet may also appear to shed fluff for some time after laying. This is caused by very short lengths of fibre left over from the manufacturing process. This is not a fault and the fluff can simply be vacuumed away.

Vacuum your new carpet regularly

Dirt and tiny pieces of grit become trapped in all carpets. As the carpet is walked on these particles rub against the fibres and cause premature wear. Vacuum at least once a week and use doormats to remove excess dirt and grit. Avoid wearing footwear if possible.

Using Rugs to protect your new carpet:

You should consider placing rugs or mats in high traffic areas as well as under tables or chairs where people rub their feet along the carpet as they sit.


Keep in mind that rubber-soled shoes (such as sneakers) are designed to grip and will therefore pull at the pile of your carpet. If you avoid wearing such footwear in the house your carpet may retain its looks for longer

Prevent a spill from becoming a stain

Accidental spillages happen in every home and have the potential to ruin your carpet. Here are some simple tips that may help prevent a spill becoming a nasty stain.

Be diligent and act quickly

Spillages are more easily removed when attacked straight away. Never allow a spill to dry on your carpet (with the exception of mud which can usually be vacuumed off when completely dry).

Never Scrub - Ever!

The carpet pile will be damaged if you scrub your carpet so, even if you do remove the stain, you will still have altered the appearance of the carpet. Always use a patting action or gentle wiping using an appropriate, non-bleached absorbent material.

Never use hot water to clean your carpet

Heat is used in the dying process to add colour to carpets. If you add hot water to a spill you are actually encouraging it to bond permanently with your carpet. Instead, use cold water to rinse the spillage out of the carpet.

Do not soak the stain

Soaking your carpet with water may damage the backing. Simply dampen, then soak up with a clean absorbent cloth (even kitchen towel works well here). If you repeat this process then you have a good chance of successfully removing the spillage completely. Once most of the visible stain has been removed, leave your carpet damp with several layers of kitchen roll, weighed down by something flat and heavy (such as a book) overnight. This will help to draw the remainder of the stain out of the carpet.

Do not use fabric wash powder or dishwashing liquid on your carpet

If you have ever cleaned a stain using washing up liquid, you most likely will have found that an unsightly mark appears in the same spot weeks later. This is caused by traces of detergent being left on the carpet pile. Detergent clings to dirt (which is why these products work so well), but if not rinsed away it will gather dirt where you don't want it and keep it there! If you do use detergent make sure that you rinse the carpet extremely well, immediately afterwards.
