New Carpet Chippenham | Avana Flooring

Of the hundreds of improvements that can be done on a house, getting a new carpet will undoubtedly be one of the most compelling for homeowners. Of course there are many fixes a house may need besides fitting a new carpet. However, a new carpet is probably the one that could impact your quality of life the most directly. A new carpet in Chippenham can change the way your whole house looks and feels. The moment you get a new carpet you need to start considering how you will maintain it.

Fitting a new carpet on your flooring can prove itself to be a pretty big investment. As such, it must be carefully taken care of. Vacuuming is the first that comes to mind when thinking about maintaining carpet flooring. And of course this is true: vacuuming should be done on a weekly basis, and even more often when children or pets share the living space. In this way you remove not only hairs, dust and dirt, but also grit and small rocks that can damage your carpet in the long run. Vacuuming can provide a much needed reduction of wear and tear on your new carpet.

In addition to vacuuming once a week, maintaining a new carpet requires a professionally done steam cleaning once a year. This process can be so beneficial to your carpet that it can extend its lifetime by a few years. This is due to the fact that steam cleaning penetrates the fibres of your carpet, doing a much better job than a vacuum ever will.

Other advice to keep in mind when maintaining your new carpet include: avoiding the usage of dirty shoes inside your house - or shoes at all – since walking outside turns the sole of your shoes into a petri dish of dirt, mud and grime that will inevitable become integrated into your carpet; using rugs and mats to protect the carpet in areas that see a lot of traffic, such as entrances, living rooms and hallways; and taking into account your style and colour of carpet to see what it needs protection from the most.

Without a doubt, a properly fitted carpet can turn your flooring into one of the most luxurious aspects of your home. Protecting it, then, is a key aspect of keeping your house splendid. This task can prove to be difficult, more difficult in fact than maintaining vinyl or wood flooring. It is, however, well worth the effort to look after it when getting a new carpet in Chippenham.
