polypropylene carpets

Maintenance for Polypropylene Carpets

The key to keeping your carpet looking and feeling its best is to take good care of it. Pets, young children, and regular footfall through your home means dust, dirt and spillages are a constant challenge.

 

Indentations

Indentations can be avoided by regularly moving your furniture around, laying down rugs, or using coasters to spread the weight of the furniture and avoid direct contact with the carpet.

 

Dust and Dirt

Regular vacuuming will help reduce any loose dirt and dust from gathering in the carpet pile, which will spread around the house and eventually discolour the carpet.

 

Spillages

Tackle spillages as soon as possible to avoid staining the carpet.

Clear up solid or semi-solid substances straight away (with a plastic spatula or utensil) and then make sure you have a clean, white cloth (coloured cloth could leave additional stains), bleach, warm water, and some kitchen towel ready.

Start by blotting away the liquid with some dry kitchen towel or a dry white cloth.

Then, working from the outside of the stain inwards, gently rub the stain using a bleach solution (one-part bleach and ten parts water) on the white cloth. You can add a small amount of additional bleach to the solution, if required, but continue to gently rub the stain and do not over soak the carpet.

Next, blot the area with a clean, damp cloth, until you are happy that the area is clean. Then gently blot the carpet dry with the clean, dry kitchen towel. Leave to dry completely before vacuuming.

wool carpets

Maintenance of your Wool Carpets

Your wool carpet will last for many years if cared for.

Dry debris can be removed easily with regular vacuuming, so leave any dirt to dry before attempting to clean it.

Occasionally a carpet may show signs of pilling early on, however, with regular maintenance and care this will reduce over time and It is nothing to be concerned about.

 

Spillages

Remove any solid or semi-solid spills with a plastic utensil, such as a spatula.

Soak up as much of the stain as possible, blotting with a clean white cloth or kitchen towel. Do this gently, dabbing the stain rather than rubbing so you do not spread the stain.

With a little warm water (or wool care fluid) on a clean white cloth, gently work from the outside of the stain inwards. Remember not to over soak the carpet, as it will spread the stain and damage the fibres.

Continue with this until you are satisfied that the stain has mostly gone, and then use a dry clean white cloth to remove any excess fluid.

Leave the carpet to dry naturally before touching again or vacuuming.

 

Indentations

Indentations on the carpet can be avoided by using rugs, or coasters to spread the weight of the furniture, and by moving your furniture regularly.

natural flooring

Maintenance for your Natural Flooring

Natural flooring is generally easy to clean and maintain, however, as it is highly absorbent you should avoid it becoming wet.

If laid in an entrance hall, it is a good idea to use a mat which will prevent any unnecessary water, dirt and grit from being trodden further across the floor. However, please ask us to advise as some mats can cause a discolouration to your flooring.

Regular light cleaning (daily if possible), with a stiff brush, is advised to remove surface dirt and avoid it becoming embedded.

Weekly vacuuming with a suction cleaner (without beater bars, as this could damage the floor surface) will also help to keep the flooring in its best condition.

DO NOT wet shampoo or wet clean any natural flooring as this will damage the fibres. This includes using steam cleaners.

In the case of mud or heavy soiling, allow to dry and then brush along the weave with a stiff brush, before vacuuming.

As with any spillages, always try to clear immediately to minimise staining. It is recommended that a Stain Removal & Cleaning Set is purchased so that you can attend to any severe spillages straight away with the correct products. If you did not purchase a set at installation, please contact us at any time to organise this.

vinyl care

Maintenance of your Luxury Vinyl

How you care for your vinyl flooring will depend, in part, on where it has been laid in the house and what that room is used for. There are many ways in which you can protect it and care for it to maintain its great looks.

If your flooring has been laid in the entrance to your home, the use of a rug or door mat will stop dirt and grit from being spread inwards and scratching the surface of your new luxury vinyl flooring. However, please ask us for advice as some mats can cause discolouration to your flooring.

Although vinyl is in the main water resistant, it is important not to over soak it, and as with all surfaces, it is advisable to clear up any spillages straight away.

Regular sweeping, with a soft brush, will prevent build-up of dust and dirt.

Felt pads or coasters under any furniture legs which are touching the flooring will help avoid scratches when sliding or moving furniture across the floor.

Regular cleaning with a pH neutral cleaner will also help keep the floor at its best (specialist vinyl floor cleaning products can be purchased, such as Karndean Cleaning Solution).

When you have cleaned your floor with a soluble cleaner, always remember to mop or wipe up any excess liquid and allow the floor to dry thoroughly before walking on it.

If you have any queries about cleaning and general maintenance and care for your flooring, please do not hesitate to contact any of the team at H2H Flooring to discuss in more detail.

Our whole experience with Phil from H2H flooring was brilliant from start to finish.The choice of carpets are endless and he stocks so many beautiful modern and contemporary colours.Nothing was ever too much for Phil, whether that be going back and forth trying to find the perfect colour that fit in our budget to the advice and expertise he has as a very good carpet fitter.We have not come across a carpet fitter like him.He explains where all of his materials are sourced and has recycled underlay at the best quality.If I can say anything I will recommend Phil to anyone who is looking to carpet their home to perfection.Could not thank him enough for everything he has done for us as this was our first time choosing carpets for our first home and will definitely be contacting him again for work in the future.Thanks again Phil

This review is long overdue. Phil has supported us through several aspects of our project. From the first minute we met, I understood how passionate he is about his service level and his commitment to his clients. His quality of finish is first class, and he cares as much about the project as his clients do.Phil joined our project early doors, giving brilliant advice throughout and we look forward to using him on our next one too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my closest family and friends

Phil did an amazing job laying cork flooring in our basement bedroom, office and bathroom. He was very knowledgeable about the products he works with, offering us several options and recommendations. He explained every step of the process in depth so we knew exactly what to expect. Very high standard of work and great attention to detail. Really went the extra mile to make sure we got the best products and service possible, and a lovely guy too! Very happy with his work.

I found Phil when I searched the Internet for a professional carpet inspector, when my new carpets of 3 months had failed badly and looked like they had been down several years, and the company had gone into administration. Phil arrived and immediately recognised that there had been huge failings with the prep work (non existent) and poor fitting not to mention poor quality carpets. I had a full refund from my credit card company, and am now looking forward to beautiful carpets being fitted by H2H in a few weeks time. Thanks Phil 👍

Would highly recommend H2H Flooring!Phil did a fantastic job fitting wool carpets throughout our new home. We moved in in November, and the whole house needed renovating. The carpets were the finishing touches, and we're really chuffed with results!We really appreciated his thoughtfulness and consideration as well, as our baby daughter arrived two weeks early, clashing with the carpet fitting!Phil made sure the loudest part of the job was done whilst my wife was still in hospital, just so the whole fitting would disturb her as little as possible when she returned home.He even helped me shift some logs as well! Cracking firm, would use again and recommend.
