Today’s fitted carpets are beginning to take on a slightly old fashioned feel about them. Just as when it became very bad form to have fluffy carpets in the bathroom and toilet areas. There is absolutely no possibility of getting carpets 100% clean in such areas and the lack of hygiene is worrying. Most people are now taking out carpets in these heavy tread and hygiene reliant areas – replacing carpet with fully sealed wooden floor coverings is best. However the lounge and relaxing areas are much more comfortable with a good wool carpet – there is no doubt that it is warmer and more sound proofed. However, these need careful cleaning – getting the ordinary marks of everyday life out of them with a good vacuum cleaner on a very regular basis will stop marks becoming more ingrained. When the home cleaning method fails to bring the carpet up to best standard, I would definitely recommend contacting a professionsl carpet cleaning agency. For a modest fee they will bring the right equpment and make the carpets look like brand new – and they’ll smell wonderful for ages!
