We all love that freshly laid carpet look and want to maintain it for as long as possible. With our useful carpet care tips you can prolong the life of your carpets.
- Vacuum regularly – at least once a week, more so if there’s high traffic. Dirt and dust are the main culprits for wear and tear and cause ‘traffic’ marks.
- Always take your shoes off at the front door. Any dust and dirt you’ve collected on the soles of your shoes, however clean they may look, will cause an impact to the appearance and health of your carpets and home. You wouldn’t want your little ones crawling along the pavements so don’t let your carpets carry the same germs.
- Clean up spots and spills promptly. Remove any excess and then blot the area using a clean white towel. Never use a coloured towel as this may cause colour transfer. Leave a clean white towel over the stain with something heavy on top so it can draw out any excess moisture.
- Never scrub a stain. By scrubbing you will fray the carpet fibres and cause permanent damage. You may well remove the spill/mark but your eye will forever be drawn to the area because of the fibres being affected.
- Stain remover products are found in all supermarkets and could be your first port of call. In the long run however they may not help the problem. If plain water doesn’t do the trick then be careful using any type of detergent or carpet shampoo. It could leave a sticky residue which will attract dirt making your carpet look worse!
- Regular maintenance is key! Call in the professionals. We recommend you should have your carpets cleaned every 6-12 months. Not only will it extend the life of your carpets you will also have a cleaner, healthier home.
- Protect your carpets. When having carpets professionally cleaned it is a good idea to have protection applied. The protection will make your carpets more resistant and any spots and spills will be easier to clean up.

In the carpet cleaning industry you really do get what you pay for. Having a skilled and trained tradesman is worth it’s weight in gold.
It’s a self-regulated industry, which means that anyone can set themselves up in business and there is nobody there to check that they know what they are doing. So it’s always important to check that the company and it’s staff have gone to the effort of affiliating themselves with industry recognized associations. That way, you know that they have been audited, so simple things like ‘insurance’ is up-to-date, as well as training. Why spend thousands of pounds on carpets and furnishings and then entrust their cleaning to a person, just because they provided the cheapest quote? Always check a tradesman’s credentials and make sure they are skilled in their trade….it could save you a lot of hassle further down the line.

This shop needed to have their carpets cleaned on a very specific day and at a set time.
It had heavy traffic throughout the store and was riddled with chewing gum….the technician stopped counting at 20! As you can see from the next photo, the carpet in front of the tills was brought up like new and all evidence of chewing gum removed.
The client was delighted with the results. More importantly, the process we use means that the carpet is dry in hours, so there was no fear of disruption to business the following day.
The carpet cleaning industry is ‘self regulated’, so choose your tradesman carefully. Any reputable carpet cleaning company will show evidence of training. It’s always best to check who they are affiliated with and who they might have been audited by.

It’s that time of the year when a lot of people suffer with hayfever. Those horrible symptoms of an itchy, tingly nose and streaming eyes are difficult to cope with and can leave you feeling rather lousy.
Unfortunately it’s not just hayfever that people suffer with but also allergies found in the home. The most common allergies found in the home are caused from dust mites. As much as you keep your home clean and tidy, those dreaded little mites can still cause chaos! Common side affects are itchy and runny nose, sometimes a blocked nose and itchy and swollen eyes. Asthma sufferers’ symptoms could also be made worse.
Dust mites are present in all homes in the UK and are the most prevalent of all allergens, causing allergic reactions in 85% of asthmatic children. They feed off of human skin scales and are amongst all household dust. Although you cannot eradicate dust mites completely from your home, you can greatly reduce the amount of them. They are commonly found amongst carpet, upholstery and beds.
Animal allergens are the next most frequent cause of allergic reactions. The allergen that triggers allergic responses to animals is found in their saliva, skin and urine.
Hoovering regularly, using a hoover that has a good filter can help but having your carpet and upholstery and in some cases, if able to, beds professionally cleaned can help immensely. It’s been proven that professional cleaning can kill dust mites and remove the allergens caused from pets.
Found in a recent study, 1 in 11 people in the UK suffer from asthma. Amongst those figures are 1.1 million children. Environmental pollution can make asthma symptoms worse and may play a part in causing some asthma. The air quality in your home could potentially make your asthma symptoms worse. Professionally cleaned carpets and upholstery gets rid of dust, bacteria and pollution brought in from outdoors making your home a much healthier, fresh surrounding.
