Proper cleaning and maintenance are essential to keep your carpets in great condition. Different carpet types require different cleaning practices. Let’s take a closer look at two popular carpet types: Berber and Frieze.
  • Berber carpets with larger loops are generally easier to clean, as dirt and contaminants are less likely to penetrate deep into the fibers.
  • Steam cleaning with hot water extraction is a recommended method for Berber carpets. This technique provides a thorough cleaning while ensuring quick drying and minimal moisture retention.
  • Avoid excessive water usage during cleaning, as Berber carpets can retain moisture if over-saturated.
  • Regularly vacuum your Berber carpet to remove loose dirt and debris, helping to maintain its appearance and prolong its life.
  • Frieze carpets have a tighter weave, which makes them less prone to showing dirt and stains on the surface.
  • However, deeper debris can become lodged within the carpet fibers, requiring regular professional cleaning to remove it effectively.
  • Dry or steam cleaning methods are suitable for Frieze carpets, but caution must be exercised to prevent damage.
  • When cleaning Frieze carpets, it’s important to use the appropriate amount of water or cleaning solution, as excessive moisture can cause shrinkage or damage, especially for wool Frieze carpets.
  • Hiring an experienced professional cleaner is recommended for Frieze carpets to ensure proper cleaning without risking damage to the carpet

Remember, each carpet may have specific care instructions, and it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.
