Our Tips To Help You Keep Your Vacuum Cleaner In Good Working Order

Chem-Dry believes you can contribute towards perserving your carpets, upholstery, rugs and fabrics by following our tips for vacuuming your carpets and keeping your vacuum cleaner in a good condition.

Always follow the vacuum cleaner manufacturer's instructions for proper use of their product.


For the best cleaning results, inspect the vacuum cleaner periodically to be sure it is functioning properly:

  • Keep brushes clean and replace them when worn.
  • Keep vacuum hoses and attachments free of obstructions that restrict air flow.
  • Inspect belts frequently to make certain they are working properly.
  • Always keep a spare belt for replacement as needed.
  • Follow the vacuum cleaner manufacturer's instructions and change the vacuum bag or container when it is more than half full. As the bag becomes full, soil removal efficiency is reduced.


A Good Vacuuming Will Do the Job!!

It is often believed that a routine vacuuming is adequate, however vacuuming can only remove a certain amount of dirt, allergens and carpet soil. From the visible eye it could appear spotless, but your carpets, fabrics and upholstery bear the brunt of busy daily lives and it is worth considering the particles and dust that lie beneath the surface of your carpet. The life of your new carpet should include an annual thorough deep cleaning by an accredited carpet cleaning professional.


Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming a few times per week reduces soil and dirt which builds up in near doorways and in the roots of your carpet. Spot cleaning is an essential part of our carpet cleaning process. After vacuuming, apply some speciality formulated Chem-Dry's Carpet Deodoriser (several flavoured scents are available) which will provide built-in stain resistance protection and a pleasant smell for your carpets and fabrics.

For maximum effectiveness, use a vacuum cleaner that has adjustable and rotating brushes that are able to loosen ground-in soil.

Accidents will always happen. We have all spilt some milk or a glass of wine. Chem-Dry provides a range of stain removal products, to remove those common and stubborn household carpet & fabric stains. For more difficult to remove stains a professional carpet cleaning treatment maybe necessary.
