Carpets

All our roll stock carpets are made with a stainfree yarn whilst in the manufacturing process, ensuring your carpet looks newer for longer.

Both fibre types have great characteristics; neither fibre type is better than the other. A quality carpet is made with superior materials through a well-monitored manufacturing process using the latest technology. This level of craftsmanship will produce a carpet that offers maximum performance.

The best carpet depends on your lifestyle. Consider the following:

  • Do you have a family that spends a lot of time at home?
  • What are the high traffic areas around your home?
  • What is the likelihood of staining (from mud, food, etc)?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Do you want to create a certain style?
  • What is your budget?

We recommend you use a different vacuum cleaner for different carpet styles. For low cut pile carpets, we suggest a vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush that agitates the pile and loosens the soil for easier carpet maintenance. When vacuuming loop pile, cut-loop pile or berber carpet, we recommend that you turn the brush off or change the head to prevent excess fuzzing. For thicker carpets with a higher pile, the height of beaters may be raised and/or suction level reduced to make vacuuming easier.

The key to good carpet maintenance is to avoid particles of loose dirt and dust from working their way into the carpet pile where they will act abrasively on the fibres and discolour the carpet.

  • Vacuum your new carpet regularly at least two or three times a week.
  • A large, strong doormat will reduce dirt from outside being spread around the house.
  • Avoid where possible laying light coloured carpets next to external entrances.
  • Loop pile carpets should be vacuumed with a cylinder cleaner using the suction head only.
  • Cut pile carpets should be vacuumed with an upright cleaner with beater bar and brush.
  • Man-made fibre carpets and wool twist pile carpets should be vacuumed regularly as soon as they are laid to pick up any isolated particles.

Follow these general rules below for dealing with spillages. For more persistent or unusual stains contact a professional carpet cleaner.

  • Spillages are more easily removed if tackled immediately so act promptly and blot off all the liquid stain with dry kitchen roll or a clean dry white cloth. Semi solid substances should be removed with a plastic spatula.
  • To clean off any remaining stain use a clean damp cloth soaked in warm water to blot the stain. Use a dabbing action with the cloth and then blot out the remaining liquid with dry kitchen towel.
  • Do not rub the pile surface of your carpet or oversoak the stain.
  • Always work from the outside of the stain inwards to minimise the stain spreading.
