Many people are coming into trouble because of an otherwise wonderful trend in carpet – Frieze.
It’s an excellent buy, affordable, modern, and brings back to life all the fond memories of shag carpeting.
What could possibly be the downside?
Well, it’s downright hard to clean.
This textile comes with long fibers that are tightly twisted. In a natural state, these fibers lie on their side. While this reduces wear on the fiber, it also conceals solid debris. Short pile textiles feature fibers that stand straight up. When a person spills food or drink on this type of textile, the fibers absorb the stain in a predictable pattern. The stain spreads down and out in a noticeable path. However, frieze carpet does not react to food or liquid stains in this manner. Instead, the stain spreads out unpredictably, because the fibers rest in a random state. This can make it difficult to properly treat stains, which results in permanent discoloration or damage to the textile.
So how do you deal with a problem like this?
Only one way. You call the professional cleaners at Carpet Cleaning Pro. Our technicians are trained to handle the unique design of this flooring. Their soil extraction equipment usually comes with a beater bar, which agitates the flooring as the vacuum passes over it. Frieze carpet doesn’t hold onto dirt as much as other textiles, but because it is so deep, a beater bar is needed. This shuffles the fibers around as the vacuum passes over, loosening and exposes dirt under the surface of the textile. Thorough soil extraction is the most important part of the process, so professionals will normally cover the area several times with a power vacuum to provide deep removal.
At least once a year, the flooring should be professionally cleaned. This will not only extend the life of the textile, it will make it easier for the homeowner to vacuum up debris in the future.
