Carpets Direct can help you by visiting your home in Kensington, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Mayfair or City of London with its mobile showroom. When you take a look around any room of a home, one of the first things that you are drawn to is the carpet, therefore meaning that it is one of the most vital components to think about when decorating a house. There are a huge number of different options out there, but natural carpets are one type that are really becoming more and more popular among people all over the country. There are a number of different types to choose from - such as Sisal, Seagrass and Coir – therefore meaning that there is something to suit everyone’s needs.
One thing that often worries people about natural carpets though is how they should take care of them, as most people purchasing them have only ever had regular carpet or floor covering. The fact is though that they are not hugely difficult to maintain and, although there are some things to know, there is no need to be overly concerned about damaging them as soon as they have been laid!
Perhaps the main thing that all buyers of natural carpet should know is that they tend to hold moisture a lot better than standard carpets – which has both advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that it makes them a lot less prone to fire, however the disadvantage is that they do stain more easily. This problem of stains can be avoided though with the right action when something is spilled on them. The first step would be to take a number of absorbent towels and to place them over the spillage and apply pressure, therefore sucking the worst of the liquid out. After this you should use a stain remover that does not contain any bleaches or dyes to remove the rest of the stain.
Most carpets usually undergo a thorough clean once a year and this should be the same with natural carpets. The difference is though that regular carpets can be easily cleaned using a “wet” method, whereby the carpet is covered in liquid and left to dry. The problem with this method is that natural carpets are prone to shrinking when they are wet for a prolonged period of time. There are two solutions to this: the first is to use a wet method but to ensure that there is a way to dry the carpet quickly, such as heaters in the room, and the second is to use one of the many dry methods for cleaning carpets that companies offer. The latter usually costs about the same as the former and will provide results that are equally as good.
The upkeep of natural carpets is not something that anyone should be scared of and it certainly shouldn’t put people off buying them. Just taking a look at the way that they can enhance a room will prove that they are more than worth the investment! As already stated, there are a number of different natural carpet options for you to choose from (e.g. Sisal, Seagrass, Coir) therefore meaning that you can be guaranteed that you’ll find the perfect choice for you!
