  • Service your vacuum cleaner regularly.

  • All carpets should be cleaned professionally a minimum of every 12-18 months.

  • Act immediately and blot the area with an absorbent cloth. Never rub the surface as this may cause irreversible damage to the fibre.

  • Work the stain from the outside in, ensuring that it is not spread.

  • For semi-solid spills, scoop and lift from the surface with a spoon.

  • Follow this procedure until the stain is no longer visible on the blotting medium.

  • If the spill is still visible, seek advice from a carpet cleaner.

  • Rearrange the furniture and turn cushions occasionally to ensure even wear of the cushions fillings and fabrics.

  • Protect furnishings from the sun and strong natural lights as this can cause fading of the fabric.

  • Take care when wearing clothing such as jeans, waxed jackets, etc. These are known to transfer dye onto your furnishings.

  • Deal with spillages immediately. Work from the outside inwards and blot the liquid. Never rub it in as this can cause more problems.

  • Vacuum curtains and upholstery to remove dust and grit that can cause soiling and fibre damage.

  • Vacuum the carpets at least 2 twice a week, more if you have pets.

  • Have a walk-in doormat and regularly clean it to help prevent soil from being dragged onto the carpet.
