It goes without saying that any carpet despite the material and price needs attendance. Carpet Remnants will not only help you to find the best carpet for your house and comfort, but give some tips on how to properly vacuum it.
The first and the main advice is to vacuum both properly and regularly. Otherwise, an unclean carpet will show signs of untimely wear from dust on the surface, that settled down into a pile and accumulated there. To avoid such damage as well as the spreading of dirt, vacuum in the direction of the pile. Pay special attention to the carpets edges and fringes.
Types of carpets
Commonly, using an electric vacuum cleaner is good for the carpet, as it prevents dust on the surface from filtering down into the pile where it can accumulate and trigger extensive wear. Though, it depends on the type of your carpet. For instance, vacuum cleaners with power brushes do a great job on commercial carpets, but may damage something more sensitive as an oriental rug. Appliances with power brushes or “beater bars” cause a raking impact on the top layer of a rug’s pile if used too strenuously. If your vacuum has a power brush, use it just occasionally and also gently. For regular cleaning, make use of the ordinary vacuum cleaner nozzle. This is especially essential for fringes; do your best not to run an upright vacuum or a power brush over fringes. The brush shreds the fringes and also causes rapid wear. Often fringes get captured and chewed out by the turning device of the brush.
From which area to start?
Vacuuming in the direction of the heap will help to stop additional dust as well as dirt to going farther into the pile. Vacuuming against the direction of the pile or sidewards will lift and brush it. The best choice is to clean your carpet or rug in at leas two directions, starting with moving to the pile. Try to build a vacuum schedule or limit how often you vacuum the carpet, especially if you have a brush or a beater bar. Fringes may be vacuumed just when needed.
