How to keep your carpets clean in summer

Aug 15, 2016 | News | 0 comments

All the coming and going that happens at this time of year can take a toll on your carpets, and that’s why we’ve put together some simple things you can do this summer to make sure your carpets are well maintained, leaving you with a fresh and clean home.


Doormats inside the door of your home don’t just protect carpets from mud and dirt, they also prevent wear and tear to the part of your home where visitors are likely to congregate as they take their shoes off…

Take your shoes off

It might be normal for people to take their shoes off in your home but it isn’t always the case. We definitely recommend this is standard procedure because it will decrease the amount of dirt, bacteria and allergens brought in from the outside. Think about it- if you keep your shoes on you’re just treading all of those particles from the outside into your carpets!


Regular vacuuming is arguably even more important at this time of year with people spending more time outside, because even if you take your shoes off, they’re not the only item of clothing that can bring foreign bodies into your home. Unwanted invaders can get into your house on clothes, too, often causing a problem for people who suffer from allergies.

There’s a reason carpet manufacturers recommend that your carpets are cleaned at least once a year with the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method. This technique utilises a high powered, van-mounted system that cleans deep into your carpets, getting to places that regular vacuuming will never reach. It applies a fine jet of steaming hot air under high pressure directly onto the carpet fibres, which is immediately extracted using powerful vacuum pumps, the residual warmth helping to speed drying. This is performed almost simultaneously, therefore not allowing the base of the carpets to become sodden, speeding up drying time and avoiding the unpleasant odours that can sometimes occur with the smaller DIY kits on the market that lack the suction or heat to remove the residual moisture.
