Clean your carpets ready for Christmas guests

Christmas time is a prime time of the year for entertaining and having guests over. If you are going to be accommodating friends and family at your home, or if your business involves hosting Christmas parties, you will want to ensure the setting is perfect.

Carrying out a thorough clean is vital for creating a pleasant, welcoming space where nothing detracts from the festivities.

To ensure your home or venue is party-ready, now is a perfect time to carry out an in-depth clean of your premises. With your carpets covering a huge area, it is important that these are fresh and clean, as grubby and stained flooring can make an entire space feel scruffy.

It can be easy to neglect carpeting as dirt from frequent foot traffic, kids and pets can slowly accumulate over time. However, with a thorough clean using the right equipment, you will brighten and revitalise a previously dulled carpet and consequently, your entire space.


How to carry out a carpet deep clean

To truly deep clean your carpeting, vacuuming will not suffice. Over time, muck gets ground into carpet fibres, leaving you with dirt which cannot be lifted by a vacuum’s suction. In these instances, you require dedicated carpet cleaning equipment. These pieces of equipment can be bought or hired, depending on your needs, and are the best way to keep your carpets in top condition.

Here are our top tips for using carpet cleaners effectively:


Don’t leave it too late

If your carpet has gotten to the point where it is filthy, it will be much harder to budge the dirt. You will have to expend much more time, effort and money to restore it than if you proactively carry out carpet cleaning when your flooring starts to look dull.



Before using your carpet cleaning machine, you should vacuum the target area to pick up all loose dirt and debris.


Spot clean:

For specific stains or spills, pre-treat them before carrying out your general carpet clean. Spray some dedicated carpet stain detergent onto the area and leave it to work as the instructions direct.


Don’t overwet:

Carpet cleaners can make your carpets quite damp if you carry out the soap and water phase too slowly or go over the same spots repeatedly. Try not to linger when executing this stage, or the neutralising rinse, else the drying phase will be ineffectual and you’ll have to wait unnecessarily long for your carpets to dry.


Proper drying:

You will want your carpet to dry thoroughly after cleaning and you can encourage this by opening windows, using fans and turning on the heating. You shouldn’t walk or place items on the carpet until it is completely dry – this typically takes 6-8 hours.
