Do’s and Don’ts of Carpet Cleaning

Having carpet can be tricky. especially if you have never had it before. Here are some simple pointers to help improve the longevity of your carpet and revive that brand new feeling!


  • Follow care instructions from the carpet manufacturer. Most advise full carpet steaming once every 6 – 12 months.
  • Regularly vacuum your carpet once every 1 – 2 weeks to maintain your carpet and reduce the dust/dirt build up.
  • Hire a professional cleaning company (like us!) if you don’t have experience doing it yourself at lease every 9 months.


  • Think that vacuuming your carpet counts as carpet cleaning!
  • Overlook professional carpet steam cleaning
  • Underestimate the dust, dirt and if you have pets the hair that builds up in your carpet, especially if you have dark carpet. Just because you can’t see it it doesn’t mean it’s not there!

If you still need to be convinced why regular carpet steam cleaning is a must, I have summarised the main points for you.

Why: extend the longevity of your carpet and keep your family/pets/employees safe from dirt and dust build up.

How: hire a professional steam cleaning company (like us!) or hire a steam-cleaning machine but only for the experienced.

When: at least every 9 months. Put in your diary so you don’t forget!
