Caring for your carpet & rugs (Part 2)

Nylon Carpets under the microscope

Your carpet and rugs acts like a filter trapping soil and dirt and allergy triggers such as dust mites, mould spores, pollen and pet dander.

Vacuuming regularly and thoroughly reduces the levels of particulate contamination within carpet fibres and also improves the appearance of your carpet and rugs.

Is vacuuming your carpet enough?  The images show reduced levels of contamination but significantly better results are achievable using a hot wash extraction carpet cleaning technique.

At APM we are IICRC and WoolSafe accredited and only use fully tested and endorsed WoolSafe products.

 

 

Caring for your carpet & rugs (Part 1)

entrance-matting-brown_1Installing barrier mats at all outside entrances to your home or workplace is highly recommended.  This simple measure will significantly reduce the rate at which the carpet will soil.  The mats should be of adequate size to effectively remove dirt from the soles of your shoes and must be cleaned regularly to prevent soil transfer.  Source WoolSafe UK.

Thank you to everyone who attended our stand on the day!
