Carpets are essential for cosy comfort in any home and they can completely transform a space. Having a soft floor underfoot can instantly make a space seem more homely and inviting and they also look luxurious and fashionable.
However, proper care and maintenance is required in order to keep your carpets looking as great as the day you bought them. By regularly cleaning and rejuvenating your carpets, you can ensure they last a really long time and look amazing for years to come.
Regular vacuuming is essential in keeping your carpets clean and fresh. Obviously, the flooring in your home will receive a lot of traffic and whether or not you wear shoes indoors, there will still be an accumulation of dirt and dust.
By vacuuming at least weekly, you can help to keep your carpets as clean as possible and prevent any build-up of dirt and dust which can make them look dull and lifeless.
In high-traffic areas, such as hallways or stairs, using rugs or carpet runners to protect the carpet is a great idea. This prevents uneven wearing of the carpet and stops it from deteriorating faster than other areas.
This can help to improve the longevity of your flooring and ensures it remains clean and in great condition, no matter how much foot traffic travels across it daily.
Similarly, your furniture can also cause uneven wear and tear to your carpet. Heavy furnishings such as tables, chairs and sofas can leave indentations in the flooring which can be hard to remove after extended periods of time.
Using carpet protectors under heavy furniture and moving the furniture around every so often to let the carpet underneath. Breathe is a great way to ensure it does not become dented or have uneven patches of wear.
