Helps prevent stain

Unwanted spills and accidents are bound to happen throughout the year – by having your carpets cleaned annually, you will prevent these stains from setting solid. You should deal with your stain as soon as possible to have the best chance of having removed.

Odour removal

Water and damp spots that go unchecked can damage your carpet and give off awful odours over time. Having your carpets steam cleaned will not only highlight any damp spots but it will also kill any bacteria that have found its way into your carpet.

Safe and hygienic

Dust mites live in carpets and are not good forasthma and allergy sufferers. By having your carpets steam cleaned at least once a year you will be able to reduce the amount of dust mites and allergens that get trapped in your carpet.

Extends the life of carpet

Regular carpet cleaning will prolong its life. Schedule your cleaning sessions before the holidays. It is best to call in the professionals to provide you satisfying results.

Steam cleaning will remove all that hidden dirt that can reduce the life of your carpet.

How to get rid of carpet dents

carpet dentWinter is almost here! With nothing much to do on a cold wet day, you could turn your attention to tidying up your house. The first thing you might like to do change the position of your furniture. Placing furniture in a different area can change the entire look of your home. Standing back admiring how go the new layout looks and you see IT!

Carpet dents!

What should you do now?

Dealing with carpet dents

If your furniture sits atop your carpet, chances are, it has caused a dent onto your carpet especially if it has been there for quite a long time. Dents are much like holes – they take up space in your carpet, only, they are imitating the furniture’s bottom that used to sit on there. They don’t harm your carpet but they aren’t very nice looking at all.

Get rid of carpet dents immediately

When you move your furniture from its original position, carpet dents are inevitable but it doesn’t mean that you can’t get rid of it. Here are 2 effective ways on how to get rid of carpet dents on your own:

Use water

Fill a spray bottle with water and lightly spray it over the dents. Use a blow dryer, set it on the hottest setting possible (do a test patch from behind the door to check it first).

DON’T USE THE HOTTEST SETTING if you have synthetic carpet. Blow some hot air on the moistened area. The heat will help the wool of your carpet rebound. Don’t forget to fluff up the carpet fibre with your fingers.

Use ice cubes

Use ice cubes in each indentation. Let it melt away. Wait for 12 hours and blot up the wet areas. Use the edge of the spoon to lift up the carpet fibre back to its original state. You can also use a hot iron. Place a cloth on the area; place the iron several inches above the cloth for 1 minute. DON’T LET THE IRON TOUCH THE CARPET, it will burn your carpet. Brush up the fibre using a coin or the edge of the spoon.

There, like magic, carpet dents is gone!

Having your carpet steam cleaned is also a great way to remove the deals from your carpet and as an added bonus you get a lovely clean carpet too. Contact Country Life Carpet Care. We offer cleaning services such as carpet carpeting, tiles, upholstery and even mattress cleaning too. Ring us now, free quote.
