Carpet Care Tips

Just How Clean Are Your Carpets?

Save yourself money and maintain a healthy home by using the following simple carpet care tips:

  • Doormats and entrance mats will help to prevent soil build up around doorways. It will also reduce the amount of soil entering your home.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate arrester) and vacuum your carpets at least 3 times a week. A quick spray of Chem-Dry's Carpet Deodoriser will provide a deodorisating fragrance.
  • Remove any spillages and carpet stains immediately. Chem-Dry's various array of stain removal services and dedicated stain removal products such as our Professional Strength Spot Remover will help to achieve this. Once you have removed as much of the carpet stain or fabric stain as possible, then apply some Professional Strength Spot Remover and then blot with a clean white towel or cloth. Never rub the stain as this will grind the stain into your carpet or fabrics. It could even cause damage to your carpet fibres.
  • It is suggested, that your carpets and fabrics should be cleaned and protected every 6-9 months.
