Temperatures are falling, and winter is coming! It can sometimes be difficult to adjust to this time of year, but we’ve got some advice to help keep your carpets in great shape during Autumn.
There’s no way round it if you like to keep warm, but when you close your windows and turn up the heating, you create a perfect atmosphere for potentially harmful allergens and dust mites. This means that you should vacuum more regularly at this time of year- maybe even three to four times a week in high foot traffic areas.
Dirt, mud and dead leaves can easily be brought in your home from outside at this time of year, it’s a good idea to make sure everyone takes their shoes off at the door. As much as 80% of the stuff you don’t want trodden into your carpets gets there via people’s shoes, so a doormat is also a good investment if you don’t have one. It will improve the look of your entrance and reduce the risk of dangerous slip hazards occurring if you have hard flooring.
Manufacturers recommend you have your carpets cleaned at least once a year, and Autumn is a great time to do it. At Roffey Cleaning we have invested thousands of pounds on the best equipment on the market, and our Hot Water Extraction machine allows us to clean deep into your carpets. The HWE extraction method also leaves carpets dry in no time at all, which is essential as it gets cooler- you don’t want to be left trying to ventilate damp, smelly carpets, which can sometimes happen when people try to use cheaper DIY machines.
