How to keep clean and maintain your staircase / landing

Vacuuming on a regular basis is an important way of maintaining the life and appearance of carpet. Debris gets trapped within the carpet fibres and if left can cause dark areas to form.

Once this happens no matter how much vacuuming is done you just wont improve the look, so maybe its time to get them cleaned professionally.

It is recommended by carpet manufacturers to get them cleaned every 6-12 months, this will insure they stay fresh and clean throughout the year.

Cleaning carpet with babies at home

Most carpet cleaning products used today contain harmless chemicals for adults and pets. But when it comes to babies and small children its worth taking a little more precaution. Newborns dont have a fully functional immune system and some cleaning solutions and specailly solvents can cause rashes and sometimes breathing problems. Dont be alarmed by this tho as a few simple steps can solve any issues.

​1. When having the carpets cleaned, vent the property by opening windows so air flow can circulate the rooms and help the drying time.

2.While the carpet is being cleaned keep all children out the room not only because of the cleaning chemicals but also heavy machines and power cables will be present nearby.

3.Once the carpet has had time to dry it may be worth while just to keep small children from crawling over it just for an extra 24 hours just for peace of mind.

When contacting a carpet cleaner please inform them you have children and how old they are so simple measures can be put in place.
