Carpets and rugs bearing the B.I.C.-Carpets label make a statement about your sense of style and value. And whether you choose a carpet for its quality, durability or beauty, you can maintain its hard-wearing, long lasting good looks by remembering to:
Remove spills immediately
To protect your carpet from the B.I.C.-Carpets collection, it’s very important to do a periodic maintenance. In this way you’ll keep your carpet in good shape. The life of your carpet will increase significally by cleaning your carpet at regular intervals.
To preserve your carpets beauty and appearance for a long time, we recommend that you vacuum the whole carpet area at least twice a week. We recommend a vacuum cleaner without rotating brushes.
Spot & stain removal
Always remember: speed is of the essence
Please do not use household cleaners such as soft soap, neutral soap, ammonia solution, turpentine, benzine or spot removal agents which are only recommended for textiles.
In-depth cleaning methods:
It is important to use a neutral shampo. To check proprietary carpet shampoos, leave a bit in a saucer overnight, pour off excess and allow to dry to see if it leaves a sticky residue to which house dust could cling.
If you use a shampooing machine, follow the instructions carefully. Remove the furniture from the room and vacuum thoroughly before shampooing. Allow to dry overnight before vacuuming and putting the furniture back in place. It’s important not to allow the carpet to get too wet.
Always check the manufacturer’s instructions. There are cleaning powders available which are either solvent-saturated or detergent-saturated. After vacuuming, the powder is sprinkled on the carpet, brushed into the pile and then vacuumed out. It is not necessary to remove all the powder from the pile as it can help minimize future soiling. The powder method is an easy way of freshening up a carpet. It also distorts the pile less and, because the carpet is not wet, the room is ready for use in less time.
Aerosol foam shampoo
Again, please always check the manufacturer’s instructions For light cleaning of small areas, aerosol foam shampoos can be used. It is advisable to test the shampoo first for sticky residue which may attract dust. Foam is usually sprayed sparingly on the carpet and worked into the pile with a moistened sponge or brush. After the carpet is dry, please vacuum.
With this method, the carpet pile can be injected with a hot water and detergent solution under pressure so that the soil is suspended in the water which is extracted almost at once by a high suction, wet vacuum system. This method is particularly useful for very dirty carpets as it removes deep-seeded dirt, but it’s less interesting to clean the surface in comparison to other methods. Although a machine can be rented, it is best to have this type of cleaning done by a professional cleaner for a long lasting carpet.
Professional factory cleaning is always a good choice because all the dirt can be effectively removed. Check the availibities in your country & always inform them about the material of the carpet (wool, polyester, nylon or lyocell), which is noted on the label on the back of your carpet.
