How to Maintain Your Hall, Stairs and Landing Carpets (and keep them looking like new for years to come!)
One of the key benefits of professional carpet cleaning is its ability to remove the deeply ingrained soils that get trapped in carpet fibers.
Sure, vacuuming regularly is important in maintaining the life and appearance of carpets, but there comes a time when even the most conscientious homeowner needs a professional deep carpet cleaning service.

Debris that lies deep in your carpets, will erode the fibers over time and you’ll end up with flat, lifeless areas (especially in high traffic areas).
It’s not just about removing obvious stains and dirt – a good carpet cleaner can significantly prolong the lifespan of your carpets and save you money.
Although you may get away with cleaning your bedrooms every couple of years, we think it’s sensible to maintain the condition of high footfall areas such as your hall, stairs and landing every 6 months.
And your hall and stairs are always the areas that visitors see first – making it even more important to make a great impression!
If you’ve opted for beige or light coloured carpets in your hall and on your stairs, it’s very easy to forget their original colour!
These carpeted areas can really take a beating as they will be walked on more frequently than other carpeted rooms.
This means a greater wear of the carpeting and, over time, a visible traffic pattern.
Due to the heavy soil and potential for damage on hall and stairs carpets, it is important to vacuum these areas more regularly. This will remove enough dry soils in between professional cleaning appointments so they’re not continually ground into the carpeting, causing permanent damage.
But – and this is important – vacuuming is not enough… and neither is dry carpet cleaning.
You should have your hall, stairs and landing professionally cleaned by hot water extraction (it’s the method recommended by carpet manufacturers for a reason!) every six months, and other carpeted rooms every 12 – 24 months.
Professional hot water extraction cleaning will prolong the life of your carpets and keep them hygienic, smelling fresh feeling and looking beautifully clean.
