CARE FOR CARPETS


Carpet is a fabric for covering a floor. It creates a stylish ambience & enhances the beauty of the house. Carpets are available in various shapes, sizes, materials & mediums from many different countries. Carpets need to be maintained well for looking good and last long.

Let’s focus on the few tips of care &cleaning of the carpets:
Carpets can be cleaned in two ways; (a) wet cleaning or shampooing
  (b) Dry cleaning.
In wet cleaning or shampooing, a detergent which dries to a powder is advisable. When the carpet is dry, the dried detergent plus the loosened dirt can be picked up with a vacuum cleaner before the actual shampooing is carried out. With the suitable detergent diluted, as per directions using hand scrubbing or by a rotatory scrubbing machine the carpet is cleaned.

Shampooing will not kill all micro-organisms, it can be prevented by spray vacuum cleaning daily by means of a spraying device.

In the dry cleaning of carpets:
