So you’ve had your brand new carpets fitted from Welch Mill, and you love them! But now you need to find a way of keeping them looking as good as the day they got expertly fitted by our fitting team! And that’s what this blog post is here to do. Thanks to our many years of experience in the carpet and flooring industry, we have picked up a few handy tips and tricks to keep your carpets Wigan looking tip top.

Keeping your carpets Wigan clean

The most obvious thing to do to keep your carpets looking good is by cleaning and vacuuming them on a regular basis. If dust and dirt end up staying in the carpets long term, they can actually start to damage the carpet fibres. If you want a deeper clean, why not try sprinkling some baking soda on your carpet before doing your vacuuming? It can help absorb unwanted odours, as well as keeping your carpets clean. Scented carpet cleaning dust is now readily available in stores, and they can work just as good as baking soda, whilst leaving a nice scent behind.

When it comes to stains, the quicker you can tackle it the better! Instead of rubbing it, try blotting up and down. This stops it spreading even further as you’re rubbing it forwards and backward. Another good tip when it comes to carpet stains is making sure you are using a light/neutral coloured cloth or rag as you don’t want the colour to run from your cloth onto your carpet.

Finally, treat your carpets once in a while and get them commercially cleaned! When it comes to commercial carpet cleaning, you do get what you pay for, so try not to scrimp. Your carpets are in constant use, so it can be worth paying that bit extra for your carpet’s upkeep.
