Carpet Cleaning …How to Vacuum Your Deep Pile Carpet

Deep Pile Carpeting is Gorgeous But…


Deep pile or ultra-plush carpeting  has become a hot favourite with home owners in recent years…

dry carpet cleaning service manchesterThe use of softer synthetic yarns give modern carpets a luxurious feel and look that is perfect for bedrooms and especially comforting in the winter months. Development of modern hi-tech weaving methods is responsible for  these ultra-plush carpets, they are constructed from special yarns where each yarn contains more than 700 soft ,”silk-like fibres “

But this high density  carpet type can present a challenge when it comes to maintenance, the length of the pile and the softness of the the carpet texture  and the density of the yarn make it difficult to use your regular vacuum cleaner.

The video below shows the problem clearly…

Consumer Reports  demonstrates the difficulty when you attempt to vacuum your deep pile carpet. Either a carpet or an area rug made from the same type of carpet pile. Even with all his weight behind the machine .. the operator cannot push the vacuum cleaner across the carpet … it is stuck fast!

Why Does it Happen?

dry carpet cleaning serviceThe video explains the nature of the problem and how to adjust your vacuum cleaner to solve the situation. The looseness of the fibre causes the machine to sink down into the carpet, the machine is buried in  the carpet and air flow to the vacuum is effectively cut off . This creates a suction- cup effect and the vacuum is stuck fast.

Don’t forget that all home carpeting should be kept in top Deluxe Dry Carpet Cleaning Logocondition with professional dry cleaning at least once a year.

The solution to the problem 

Adjust the height of your vacuum  …  Examine your vacuum. Many upright vacuum cleaners have a height adjustment, adjusting the height of your vacuum is the secret to vacuum your deep pile carpet . Adjusting the setting for  deep carpet pile  will raise the machine wheels  up so that it can maintain air flow and allow the  vacuum to be pushed over the pile.

Cannister vacuums also may have a height adjustment. It will be located on the head of the cleaner. Look for it or consult the manual.

Your  canister vacuum cleaner may have a suction control instead of a height adjuster. This achieves the same result, you can make suction more or less powerful and the control is usually located on the stem of the cleaning head.

If your own vacuum cannot be adjusted for suction or for pile height, then  you might need to start looking for an alternative vacuum cleaner to vacuum your deep pile carpet. There are several different models available that will not only clean deep –pile carpet but can clean every other carpet type also.

How to vacuum your deep pile carpet  :

Set your vacuum to the highest pile setting to start and if it is too easy to push across the carpet adjust it down until there is some resistance.

When you can feel the vacuum engaging with the carpet fibres and can see the brush strokes  appear on the carpet pile then you have got the setting correct for cleaning your carpet.

Vacuum your deep pile or ultra plush carpet as regularly as you would normal carpet, at least once a week, more often if you have children or pets and always tackle stains and spots as quickly as possible.

manchester carpet cleaning careLots of people buy a new carpet in the New Year. They have survived Christmas and the party season with their old carpet and now its time to invest in a lovely replacement.

If they are delivering a large item in a box ( such as a mirror ) ask them to un box the item outside, that box may have been standing  on  a dirty  floor

  • Its important to have a doormat for each outside door. Put it outside and have one inside as well.
  • Use a weather proof  doormat outside.
  • Synthetic fibre mats are more durable, they stand up to wear and tear and do not degrade if they are wet for long periods

Pilling can appear on a new  carpet if it is made of mixed fibres. If this should happen it is just a feature of a new carpet and can be solved by carefully snipping the pills off with a pair of nail scissors.

Shedding  All new carpets will shed. If the pile is loose and long there will be more shedding than if the pile is tight and short. The amount of shedding on a new carpet can be alarming and fill up the vacuum cleaner. Don’t worry. Shedding will stop soon.

Bolton carpet cleaning careVacuuming 

  • Vacuum your new carpet regularly and often, at least twice a week for the first few weeks after installation.
  • When your carpet is brand new vacuuming removes the shedding pile and is a key factor in  new carpet cleaning care
  • Use the vacuum that is appropriate for your new carpet …
  • To clean cut pile carpets  vacuum with an upright machine with a beater bar and brush, adjust the height of the beater bar to match the pile height.
  • Loop pile carpets can be damaged by a beater bar. Instead, use a canister or cylinder vacuum and only use the suction head.
  • Vacuuming lifts the pile and prevents flattening especially in high traffic areas such as hallways and stairs.
  • Maintain your vacuum properly or you are wasting your time and efforts.
  • Empty the bag or dust container often. Even a half full bag impacts your vacuum’s suction power.
  • Check that the filter is not clogged and wash it ( if washable ) or replace it frequently.
  • Invest in a pet vacuum if you have pets. They are designed to pick up hair and fur.
  • Always dust before you vacuum your carpet, pick up as much stuff from the floor as you can before you start and lift small pieces of furniture and chairs out of your way so you don’t have to stop  and start.
  • Vacuum slowly. Take your time when you vacuum , slow strokes collect more dirt and overlap your strokes as you cover the carpet.

Why Dry Carpet Cleaning is Better For Berber

Berber  or looped pile carpets  have previously had a reputation for being “difficult to clean”  but here we explain why  dry carpet cleaning is better andmake caring for berber carpets very easy.

Berber Carpeting is one of the most popular carpet choices for modern homes and that’s because it has so many advantages.

Dry carpet cleaning is better for manchesterIt looks attractive and comes in a wider range of styles but its most important advantage is that it  wears extremely well. Berber’s durability comes from the way it is constructed. Unlike pile carpet which has individual fibres attached to a backing material, berber carpeting is composed of one long strand of fibre that loops through the backing.

Dry carpet cleaning is better in ChorltonThese loops are usually tightly packed to give the carpet a  resistance to wear. A berber carpet stands up to high traffic very well and is a great choice for areas that receive lots of wear and tear such as hallways and stairs and for families with a busy lifestyle or children it is an excellent choice. The tightly  looped construction of a berber carpet also allows a natural stain resistance. The fibres are individually twisted and then looped through the backing and they are less absorbent than the fibres of a pile carpet.

Caring for your berber carpet.

The qualities that make berber very attractive as a carpet choice have however a downside, they require careful cleaning and maintenance. If loose soil and dirt is not removed quickly from the surface of a berber carpet it sinks into the loops and is then difficult to extract with your vacuum cleaner.

Vacuuming your Berber Carpet

dry carpet cleaning for Stockport Vacuum regularly to pick up loose soil and dirt. Don’t use a vacuum cleaner with a beater bar because it may cause snagging and pulls. Make sure the suction on your vacuum is as strong as possible. Ensure the bag or dirt collection cup  is empty. A full bag will reduce the suction on your vacuum. Change the filter on your vacuum to prevent it being clogged with dust and dirt and reducing suction.

Vacuum efficiently – use a forward push and a slow back pull for each stroke when you are vacuuming. Take your time because the machine will collect more dirt if you go slowly and use overlapping strokes.

Stain removal on a Berber Carpet

Dry carpet cleaning for Salford Tackle every day stains and spots as quickly as possible. It is always easier to remove a stain when it is fresh and before any colouring in the stain bonds with the carpet fibres. When a stain has dried onto carpet it can dye the fibres permanently.

If you have spots and stains on your berber carpet don’t use a detergent solution to try and remove them. Detergent in solution is very difficult to remove from the berber loops and when dried it will cause a slight stickiness that will actually attract dirt. Over time this causes a dirty patch to form… you will wonder where this type of stain came from!

  • Use a spray bottle of luke warm water to tackle stains. Don’t rub or scrub the carpet
  • Tamp or blot the area after you lightly spray the stain with water
  • Repeat these actions until most of the stain has been removed
  • Then if any stain remains use a Q- Tip to apply a solution of Hydrogen Peroxide in water
  • Leave 5 minutes and blot with a clean dry towel or micro fibre cloth.

Professional Carpet Cleaning for Berber Carpets

Dry Carpet Cleaning is Better for Your Berber Carpet

Traditional carpet cleaning is not the best way to clean berber carpet. Steam cleaning or systems that use water can cause problems.

The looped construction of berber are difficult to dry when saturated with water, as they dry any dirt in solution will be deposited at the top of the loop as the water evaporates. This is why stains in berber carpet “come back “ when they are wet cleaned. And if the carpet is not dried very quickly mildew and mould can form in the backing area, dust mites populations can explode because of the additional humidity. Wet cleaning is really not the best option for berber carpets.

Use a Dry Carpet Cleaning service such as Deluxe Dry Carpet Cleaning. This system of cleaning is very low moisture and will clean a  berber carpet  without saturating it. The carpet will be dry and ready for immediate use as soon as the cleaning is finished. The dry carpet cleaning will restore the pile if it is flattened. Dry  carpet cleaning is better because it  deep cleans each loop  and between each loop down to the carpet backing without overwetting.

The Spots and stains that are treated by dry carpet cleaning will be removed for good, stains will not return because there is no wick back from within the pile. Dry Carpet cleaning is better because the carpet stays dry

Regular dry carpet cleaning is better with Deluxe Dry carpet cleaning and is convenient and easy. There is no need to move heavy furniture and no risk of overwetting  or causing wet damage to hard wood floors or expensive furnishings there is no risk  of rusting, dye run or water marking .

or Deluxe Dry Carpet Cleaning in Stockport

Dry carpet cleaning is better, it keeps a berber carpet looking its best and keeps its natural stain resistance properties.
