Generally people give more thought to servicing their car on a regular basis - but the same goes for your carpets - you need to maintain its efficiency and performance as well.
The most important maintenance step is proper vacuuming. Regular and thorough vacuuming at least once a week and more often in heavy traffic areas will remove soil and dirt particles before they become embedded into the pile of the carpet. Remember you cannot over-vacuum and vacuuming should begin the day the carpet is installed. Frequent vacuuming is your carpets best friend.
Spot and Spill Removal
One of the most crucial areas of carpet maintenance is the removal of spots and spills. Acting quickly is the key to success when anything is dropped or spilled and always having the necessary cleaning materials at hand are of the utmost importance.
No-one likes to think that there may be a need to deal with water damage restoration but we include the following since the local area has had to deal with this problem on more than one occasion during the wet season.
The likelihood of successful restoration
We are able to prepare an inspection report on notification of a potential insurance claim. The report will cover the following:
# Assess the extent of damage
# We will provide an estimate of the restoration cost, not only for completion of the task but for preparing the notification report of a potential insurance claim. It is the practice of some carpet cleaners/restorer to merely extract excess water from the carpet and rely on air blowers to dry the carpet and underlay.
This method slows down the drying process and can allow mildew and mould to develop on the jute secondary backing of the carpet.
Wherever practicable, we remove wet underlay, extract excess water from the carpet and then install air blowers.
Where a carpet is directly glued to the floor excess water is extracted and air blowers installed.
Maintain the Care of Fabrics in your Home
Good health is priceless. The value of home decor fabric is substantial and includes carpets, upholstery, bedding and more.
We wash the floor regularly and wipe surfaces often to keep things clean and fresh.
Generally people give more thought to servicing their car on a regular basis to maintain its efficiency and performance.
Regular maintenance of fabric used in our homes on a regular basis will not only prolong its life and protect the investment, but it will also clean and freshen it to preserve and maintain a healthy environment.
We recommend a 12 monthly maintenance.
It is a small investment when compared to early replacement cost or the loss of health and vigor and/or medical costs.
