FAUX SILK & NYLON CARPETS

VACUUMING

To maintain the appearance of your carpet, it is recommended to vacuum regularly. As every household is different, the frequency of vacuuming should be based on how many people live in your home. For example, for four people living in the house = vacuuming a minimum of four times per week, especially in high traffic areas, using a good quality upright vacuum cleaner with a rotating brush is recommended. Fibre shedding is a normal characteristic of new carpets, which reduces after time. Vacuuming regularly and thoroughly will prevent soil and dirt from becoming embedded in the fibres. It will also help prevent premature wear.

PERIODIC CLEANING

Over a period, even with rigorous and regular vacuuming, your carpet may well have an accumulation of debris, deep in the pile that requires a thorough clean. We would always recommend the services of a professional cleaning company to undertake the shampooing or steam cleaning work for you.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF

Whilst our nylon carpets are thoroughly tested, site conditions must prevail on any installation. Different on-site conditions such as areas where there is a risk of food and beverages being spilt must be taken into consideration. Hot beverages such as tea, coffee, soup and chocolate will cause staining which will be more prominent on light plain colours. It is still important, as with other fibres, to ensure stains, however, caused, are dealt with as quickly as possible and the carpet is vacuumed regularly.

AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT
  • Although Polyester is a natural fade resistant fibre, exposure to strong sunlight will eventually cause fading.

MOVE FURNITURE AROUND
  • Use gliders or cups underneath the furniture to move a few directions to prevent permanent indentations from forming.

CLEANING
  1. Clean any spillages and stains immediately

  2. Test any proprietary cleaning product in an inconspicuous spot before using on a large area. All carpet cleaning solutions have instructions. Please follow their instructions carefully.

  3. Alternatively, a simple method using 1 x cup of white vinegar mixed thoroughly with 1 x cup of cool water can be used.

    i) Spray the vinegar/water mix onto the stain.

    ii) Sprinkle baking soda on the spot and allow to settle.

    iii) With a clean cloth, blot the spot. iv) Vacuum and allow to dry.
