Care and Maintenance

Carpets are an important investment, but also an expensive one. A carpet that is properly cleaned and cared for will last, on average, twice as long which is why it’s crucial to maintain your carpet to maximise longevity.

Regular cleaning will help to keep your Brockway carpet looking great. Here are a few simple tips to care for your carpet:

  • Opting for doormats at the entrance to your home will help to trap grit and dirt, preventing it from entering the home and staining your carpet.
  • In the first few weeks of having your carpet, vacuum as much as possible, ideally daily. This will ensure that loose fibres are removed, preventing them from working their way into the surface. Regularly vacuuming also not only helps to prevent unwanted dirt from working its way into the carpet fibres but also helps to keep the tufts of your carpet upright, maintaining the soft, brand new look for longer.
  • Opt for a vacuum cleaner that has brushes or a beater bar if you have a cut pile carpet. Or, for loop pile carpets, one without brushes or a beater bar is best.
  • Use scissors to trim any piece of carpet fibre that stands out above the surface to the level of the other tufts. Do not pull it out, this can cause irreversible damage to your carpet.
  • We recommend immediate spot cleaning of spillages and cleaning should be done with a 'suction only' vacuum, any abrasive attachments should be removed and beater bars lifted on upright versions.
