Tips on Hoovering….
So you think hovering properly is easy. Think again if you want to do a really good job. The following are my tops tips for doing an excellent job in prolonging the life of your carpet.
- Carpets need to be vacuumed once a week and more often in areas of heavy traffic.
- Frequent vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet by preventing a buildup of gritty particles that can damage carpet fibres.
- Every few weeks, take a little extra time and use your crevice tool for cleaning around skirting boards and radiators and in other hard-to-reach places.
- To vacuum a carpet, divide the area into quadrants and vacuum an entire quadrant before moving on to the next.
- Take your time when you vacuum a carpet, especially a deep carpet in which dirt is sure to be deeply embedded. One pass is not enough. Go over each section several times, and work slowly to allow the suction to remove all the ground-in dust and dirt.
- Pay special attention to the areas where people sit and move their feet. Vacuum these areas of heavy traffic with a crisscross pattern of overlapping strokes.
- Protectant can be applied to new carpets or to newly cleaned carpets.
- Add baking soda to the bag in your vacuum to fight odors.
Odours are one thing — spots and spills are quite another. Spots and spills happen to just about every carpet and can be difficult to remove. For spots and spills you can call us or visit our website.
