We all recognise that carpets are a major purchase these days and keeping them in tip top condition requires regular cleaning and maintenance – just like the other area of your home.
The fibres in carpets and rugs and any soft furnishings act as a “filter” trapping particulates (or soils) and contaminants (such as pollen, smoke and dust mites etc.) and without regular vacuuming or deep cleaning, in time these can build up releasing these contaminants back into the air, which can cause distressing symptoms of allergen sensitivity as well as unsightly soiling and premature wear and tear of the fibres. Regular cleaning of your carpets and soft furnishings will significantly reduce the amount of allergens in your home, and is key to a healthy environment for you and your family.
For the majority of carpets our preferred method of cleaning is water rinse extraction. Most manufacturers recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned by a qualified technician every 12-18 months. Carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis and before they become heavily soiled. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of a carpet. However, not all carpets can be wet cleaned (e.g. jute, sisal and sea grass) and so we also use a low moisture cleaning process.
All of our cleaning processes and the products we use are generally safe for pets, babies, allergy suffers and safe for the environment and after careful consideration we will use only the most appropriate cleaning method and product for the given situation.
