Love Your Carpet To make It Last
Carpets can last for many years if they are well cared for. Carpet suppliers know that careful attention and maintenance can go a long way in ensuring your carpets look and feel good.
The Best Tool for your Carpets
The vacuum cleaner is probably the best tool for your Penthouse Carpets. Regular vacuuming will prevent dirt from accumulating and keep the fiber looking clean and beautiful. High traffic areas that are carpeted such as stairways and the hallways will need to be vacuumed twice a week. Those carpets that are plush, luxurious and pricey will need to be professionally cleaned. Special nozzle fittings can help to clean up hard to reach areas, tiny dust and dirt particles and under furniture. Pile carpets get better results if the rotating brush is used while shag carpets will do well with the suction setting. A carpet rake attachment can undo matting if used on a regular basis.
Carpet Woes To Look Out For
Sometimes small balls of carpet fiber can get attached to the carpet surface especially close to furniture. This is known as Pilling and it should be gently cut off with a pair of scissors. Ensure that the right type of vacuum cleaner is used according to the type of carpet. Occasionally small tufts will appear which need to be cut and not pulled out. Carpet suppliers also recommend that furniture is moved regularly to prevent indentations from forming. The weight of the furniture can also be evenly spread with the help of customized coasters. If indentations do form then an ice cube applied to the area followed by a steam cleaner can help restore the original form. Fuzzing or the entanglement of loose fibers especially on loop pile carpets can also be noticed. Carpets placed in high traffic areas will also shed loose fibers. Gently clipping the fuzz is the best way to tackle the problem. With pile carpets, there is a tendency for shading to take place. The fiber can undergo light or dark patches as it is moved. Don’t be alarmed, this is the nature of the carpet material and not a manufacturing defect. Areas around stairways can wear out faster and therefore it is important to lift or move the carpet periodically. Penthouse Carpets can tie a house together, accentuate areas and add warmth and color. All they need is regular love, gentle handling and maintenance.
