It can be removed by effective hoovering. All residual particles continue their way to the bottom of the carpet, and they are very hard to remove. We recommend the use of standing vacuum cleaners designed for heavy duty, which are equipped with automatic brushes and mixer.
Most superficial contamination partially contain fat or oil. The longer the contamination is in contact with fibers, the more grease reach the fluffes. Contamination not removed by the vacuum cleaner get between the fibers, and the fat or oil subsides onto the fibers, which enable them to attract even more contamination.
This is the combination of fat, oil and such heavier contaminations, like mud or sand.
When this contamination reaches the bottom of the carpet node, it usually remains there, until carpet cleaners perform a deep cleaning.
Wet contamination and stains
When a contamination becomes wet, it passes through the fibers faster, and they are tougher to remove. Wet stains spilled onto the carpet immediately pass through the fluffes, and deep cleaning process becomes necessary.
The following two main carpet abrasion dangers require to be dealt with in the most effective way:
This means the biggest danger on the lifetime of your carpet. Do not forget, that the biggest part of harmful sand is found between the fluffes. When sand is let between the fluffes, cutting edges on them quickly abrade the carpet, when people shuffle on it.
Wet carpet, especially which contains sand, accelerate abrasion and decrease the carpet’s stability too. Please do your best to keep your carpet as dry as possible. When the carpet is wet, dry it as soon as possible by placing absorber paper on the wet area.
On the wet carpet, due to frequent steps, fluffy fibers of the carpet become quickly worn.
Contamination resistant carpet
Strategic placement of contamination resistant carpet significantly reduces the quantity of contamination and moisture brought to the carpet. It is crucial especially on areas next to the street, kitchen, bathrooms etc.
Because the contamination resistant carpet’s duty is to retain sand and moisture, it should be kept in good condition. It must be thoroughly hoovered every day, and cleaned with detergent every week if necessary. It is worth to consider the application of removable and washable protective carpet.
Do not forget, that if contamination resistant carpet is full with sand and dirt, then it will not remove the dirt from the shoes, but rather brings grease and dirt on the shoes instead of removing them. Thus it accelerates the contamination of adjacent carpet.
Choose such a contamination resistant carpet, that is maximal hygroscopic and easy-to-clean. The carpet type needs to be determined upon the consideration of what kind of contamination will be brought onto the carpet by people’s sole. Area to be covered by protective carpet shall be as large as possible, but at least two steps long, because people usually do not stop to clear their feet, when they enter into a room.
When the decoration of the place does not allow to apply protective carpet onto the area covered by carpet, then it is worth to think about applying protective carpet on the solid surface in front of the entrance.
