We understand that cleaning or hoovering is one of those boring chores that you can’t seem to escape from, dirt and grime ends up going on the carpet nearly all week – especially if you have animals or young children running around. However, you will surely be looking forward to enjoying all their benefits of having that clean and fresh carpet smell in your home again.
Chances are that you can’t wait to enjoy that fluffy and cosy feel that new carpets provide, but there are a few things that you should keep in mind if you want your new carpet to keep looking as good as it did the first day it was installed. Floor Coverings Wakefield has some tips and suggestions that will help prolong the life of your new carpet.
Vacuum on a Regular Basis
You should vacuum as often as possible, the more carpet flooring you have – the more time it will take to clean. Carpets fitted in heavily trafficked areas (such as living rooms or corridors) should be vacuumed at least twice a week. If there are children or pets in the household, you may need to vacuum more often. But did you know that there is such a thing as a wrong vacuuming technique? If the vacuum is too low, you may damage the fibres in your new carpet, so make sure that it is set at the right height before you start cleaning. Additionally, avoid waiting until the filters or the vacuum bags are full, so instead replace them often.
See a Stain? Clean it Straight Away
Stains and spills are almost inevitable, so ensure you tackle them immediately by blotting the stain with water or white vinegar, as this will minimise the amount of dirt that seeps into the fabric. If you must, use a commercial cleaning product, but test it first on a small area to ensure it doesn’t make stains worse. Of course, one of the best ways to ensure the durability of a new carpet is buying a premium-quality product from a reputable supplier.

Flooring of course, has a huge impact on the overall look and style of a room; if your flooring or carpet looks a little tatty then so will the rest of your room. No matter how hard you clean your home, if the floor is old and worn out – then you are failing in style.
Having carpets in your home immediately creates a warm, homely feeling that simply never goes out of style. A carpet works well with both modern and older homes, which means you’ll never have to worry about having a carpet that doesn’t fit perfectly for your home.
