Carpet Care Tips
No matter what type of carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning you want, we can deliver. That’s why we are so proud of the team we have gathered here at Victoria Carpet Cleaner. Our contractors really know their stuff, and are always happy to help with advice or ideas about how to clean and maintain the carpets and soft furnishings in your home or commercial building. Of course, there’s a lot you can do yourself at home to protect the carpets and make sure your property is in good condition from top to bottom. Here are a few tips to help you - and we are always on hand to offer professional advice and support if you need it.
Looking after carpet
The team at Victoria Carpet Cleaner will advise you how frequently to have your carpets professionally cleaned, based on a range of factors. In between cleans, you’ll want to vacuum regularly, especially with plush and thick pile carpets. Even in areas which are not used much, a weekly vacuum will stop dust from building up. Every now and again you’ll also want to use the vacuum fittings to get right into corners and around those hard to reach areas, to make sure nowhere gets missed. You’ll quickly see which high traffic areas need special attention - vacuuming these more than one time a week is usually advisable.
Rug care tips
Area rugs are beautiful, and while they are similar to carpet, caring for a rug may not require exactly the same process as looking after your carpet does. For example, many vacuum cleaners have different fittings for hardwood floors, wall to wall carpet, and rugs. Rug settings will usually mean the brush or bar is lifted so it is not as harsh on a thicker pile. Whenever you use a vacuum on a rug, it’s worth checking you’re not losing too many fibres - which will cause damage to the rug in the long run. Each rug is different, so clean yours according to the materials it is made with, following the manufacturer’s instructions. If you’re not sure about how to keep your rug in good condition, take professional advice.
Cleaning upholstery at home
Upholstered furniture needs to be cleaned too, but is often missed from the regular cleaning cycle. Simply vacuuming your recliner or lounge chair once a week will help - just make sure the vacuum has a soft brush to avoid damage. If you spill something on the upholstered surface - and it does happen to use all from time to time - don’t panic. You may be able to blot the spill with a towel to lift it. Don’t rub, as this can actually make matters worse. And if that doesn’t seem to work, get in touch with a professional, so we can help restore your furniture to its best possible state.
