We all know that carpets naturally get grubby and downtrodden over time, losing that lovely like-new look. Drinks get spilled, food gets dropped, and dirt gets walked in, no matter how careful we are.
Particle soils wear out carpets quickly, by abrading the fibres, causing premature wear.
Spots and spills turn into stubborn marks and stains, and over time, become harder and harder to remove, until they can become permanent and the longer they’re left, the worse it gets.
Doing nothing will just make the situation worse until replacement becomes the only option and replacing costs a small fortune. One medium-sized lounge can cost in excess of a thousand pounds, just for a moderate quality carpet, and moving all your furniture out can be a real hassle.
The answer is to have them professionally cleaned from time to time by a local carpet cleaner. That helps to keep them looking their best and lasting longer.
Carpet manufacturers such as Shaw’s and Dupont recommend professional cleaning every 9 to 18 months depending on the use.
If your carpets are not looking their best, or haven’t been cleaned in a couple of years, now is a good time to do it.
