Dust and lint will need to be removed on a regular basis in the days after installation of your carpet.

If this process is done at least on a weekly basis, removal of carpet soil will be achieved .Initially if you vacuum against the natural direction of the carpet pile, this will assist in lifting the soil out of the yarn and then change the direction of your vacuuming to follow the natural pile when finishing. This will restore the carpet to its finished look.

When spills occur, it is important that they are cleaned up immediately!

Here is a guide to help you make your job easier.

  1. Scoop up solids with a knife or spoon.
  2. Blot up liquids with white paper towel or tissues
  3. Determine the best method of stain removal from the chart below for nylon and wool carpets.
  4. Before treating stains, test treatment on a less obvious location of the carpet to check for possible colour change.
  5. With a Blotting or dabbing motion, work inward from the edge of the stain to prevent it spreading.
  6. Do not rub pile during the stain removal process.
  7. When removing stains, ensure carpet is dry before proceeding to the next step in order of the treatment.
  8. Rinse with clear, tepid water and a clean cloth or sponge.
  9. Once the stain has been removed, blot up moisture by applying pressure with a white paper towel or tissues.
  10. Do not walk on the affected area until it is dry.

Powder Cleaning

Powder cleaners are designed to give your carpet a lift in appearance and sometimes to give a pleasant scent but professional cleaning is needed eventually.

Foaming Shampoos

Foaming Shampoos that are aerosol can based can be affective in small areas. Spray the foam onto the affected area and gently rub into the carpet with a damp cloth, brush or supplied applicator.

This will need to fully dry and then vacuum the area fully where you have sprayed, this process may need to be done again if the carpet is still soiled.
