In one of our previous blogs we talked about how the trend for ‘soft carpets’ has brought a new dimension to home interiors and shows no signs of waning with consumers.
But with a ‘new’ product comes new issues and in this instance, super soft carpets – while snuggly and cosy – can be harder to vacuum. And here’s why...
Soft carpets are made with a finer denser fibre count than traditional low pile carpets which is why they have a thicker, luxurious feel and a deeper pile. However, this means that a normal, high suction vacuum won’t work as well on this type of carpet as it’s difficult to push through and manoeuvre it.
But don’t worry, you can still vacuum your soft carpet! Just look out for a couple of features to make sure the vacuum is suitable for your carpet, making it easy to care for.
Buying a new carpet is a big investment for your home so it’s important to speak to your retailer regarding care and maintenance to keep your carpet looking its best.
