Caring for your StainSafe carpet on a regular basis can help it to stay looking great. These simple tips will help you to look after your StainSafe carpet.

Prevention is better than cure

Place good quality entrance mats at all external doorways to trap dirt and stop it from getting onto your carpet. Remember to vacuum your mats regularly so they can perform at their best.

Bear in mind that a dark carpet won’t show dirt and stains as much as a light carpet will.

Vacuum regularly

To preserve your carpet's beauty and appearance, we recommend that you vacuum the whole carpet area at least twice a week, with a cleaner that has rotating soft brushes.

These vacuum cleaners are a little more expensive, but far more effective. This is the only way of removing deep-down dirt and the carpet pile will recover faster.

Slight dirty marks and stains can best be removed with a carpet cleaning product. Read the instructions for use carefully and always treat stains as quickly as possible.

Clean in-depth

Every two years, we recommend that you have your carpet cleaned in-depth by a reputable professional in order to preserve its appearance.

Ask your retailer, who will be able to recommend company.

Stain first aid

React quickly
Do not allow stains to dry in, but remove them immediately with a clean kitchen cloth. Then remove solid elements with a spoon. Find out the type of stain, so that you can look up the most suitable product in the stain table below.

Thorough treatment
Handle the stain with a clean kitchen cloth, working in from the outside so as to prevent spreading and smudging. For most stains a carpet care product can be used. If none is available, soak the kitchen cloth in the product indicated in the table. Use the correct quantity of the product, not too much, not too little. Be careful to rinse the carpet to remove the care product and the dirt. Wait until the area is completely dry before walking on it again.

Method A: Water
Dab off the stain as far as possible with a clean white kitchen cloth. Then treat the stain with a damp cloth and dab it off again, until no further dirt adheres to the cloth.
