Man-made fibre carpets and wool twist pile carpets should be vacuumed regularly as soon as they are laid.
Vacuuming Loop Pile:
Loop pile carpets should be vacuumed with a cylinder cleaner using the suction head only. Avoid using beater heads and brushes - they will catch and lift the fibres , giving your carpet a bobbled or felted appearance.
Vacuuming Cut Pile:
Cut pile carpets should be vacuumed with an upright cleaner with a beater bar and brush.
The key to good carpet maintenance is to avoid particles of loose dirt and dust from working their way into the carpet pile where they will act abrasively on the fibres and discolour the carpet.
Follow these general rules before the dealing with spillages. For more persistent or unusual stains contact a professional carpet cleaner.

Cleaning Wood / Laminate Flooring:
Wooden floors can either be swept regularly using a soft bristled broom or vacuumed frequently to remove any dirt. When vacuuming your floor, it is advisable to use a soft brush attachment to minimise scratching. A good quality floor mat at each entrance to trap dirt and prevent damage. Grit underfoot will act like sandpaper against your floor. Coir matting is an ideal entrance barrier for wet and dirty feet.
