How to clean all carpet types?
Your carpet is completely sucked with a powerful knock vacuum cleaner in the run-up to cleaning and freed from loose dust and sand.
Subsequently, the carpet is cleaned with a counter rotating three-disc machine using the proven VORWERK-TAPISAN method. Special stain removals are just as much a part of carpet cleaning as the dressing of the laying material. In this way, we protect your carpet from rapid re-pollution.
After the carpet cleaning, the floor is thoroughly sucked again and the crystallized cleaning substances are removed. Afterwards, the carpet is brushed with a special carpet broom, so that the carpet remains fine-floored again and in a visually first-class condition.
Some advices about wool carpet cleaning.
Clean wool carpet properly:
Yes, you can also clean a wool carpet with home remedies. However, you should be careful and have the right instructions at hand. Even an older wool carpet can become radiantly clean again and remind us of old times.
Water and wool detergent:
On the Internet, it is often left that you should not clean a wool carpet wet. Dry cleaners are often recommended, which usually only clean the surface of the carpet. If you want to clean a wool carpet thoroughly, you can’t avoid a wet cleaning. Of course, the wool carpet must not be flooded, but let it in touch with water, so that no damage is caused.
Important: Wool carpets or wool in general, do not tolerate sharp or acidic cleaners. We can only advise against so-called household insider tips such as sauerkraut, or bleach. Also, no chemical detergents should be used when cleaning a wool carpet. Therefore, you should spend a little more money on a good wool detergent, so that the wool carpet gets its shine again. Good wool detergents give a regressing effect, which is supposed to protect against new contamination.
Tip: Small wool carpets can also be washed comfortably in the washing machine as long as a wool washing program is available. Of course, the right wool detergent should be used.

Cleaning carpet: first aid for stains
Cleaning carpet: Red wine stains must be treated quickly
Some stains are particularly stubborn and can often be removed with difficulty. However, those who are fast and treat the stains immediately after they are formed will have less difficulty in removing stains. In advance, it is important to check exactly what kind of stain it is – because different home remedies are suitable for stain removal for different stains.
Red wine stains
A brief carelessness and it has already happened: the glass is overturned and the wine on the carpet – now you should act quickly! Add enough table salt to the still fresh stain. The salt absorbs the moisture and brightens the stain. Then suck the affected area once. If necessary, repeat and, if necessary, moisten the stain with sparkling water.
Coffee stains can be removed relatively easily with baking powder and mineral water. Simply add some baking powder to the stain, fry the water and wait. If the stain is dried, suck everything once, loosen it with a carpet brush if necessary.
Chocolate stains can be easily removed from the freezer with a cooling battery. To do this, place the cooling battery on the chocolate stain so that the chocolate freezes. It can then be easily removed from the carpet.
Prices for laying carpets on stairs
Prices for laying carpets on stairs are divided into materail and labour costs. The basis for calculating material costs must be best carpet for stairs which are not available in the most favourable price ranges. Labour costs are strongly influenced by the shape of the stairs.
How to install your carpet?
By checking the construction floor surface eliminates irregularities, you should bend and remove extra objects such as oil, paint, wax. After that measure the inner floor area to attach the carpet tile to determine the amount and shape of the carpet tile to be attached by measuring. In order to check the horizontal and to minimum the number of carpets to be constructed, the center line is displayed by eating the floor by four lanterns or chalk. While considering the working speed on one side of the quadrant area with a centerline installation is applied to the adhesive. At the time the adhesive becomes transparent, attach the carpet tiles from the baseline. In addition, press the joints with a special squeezer to prevent the display. The damaged carpet tiles are covered after considering the color of the surrounding carpet. Carpet tiles to be constructed at the edges or edges are also cut to a certain size using a ruler and a cut knife. Then press the carpet tiles attached to the hand roller so that there is no excitement along the middle class of the carpet, or clean the construction floor surface with a neutral detergent, and polish with water-soluble wax when completely dried. If you move heavy objects after construction, cover the protective material to protect the carpet.
Tie the thread out of the edge to prevent the carpet edges from getting tangled. Lace to the length of the carpet and sew the sewing machine. They also sew the edges without lace to prevent the carpet edges from loosening.
Polyester or wool carpets?
One of the most common plastic fibres is polypropylene, which is also traded as synthetic wool. Polypropylene is particularly soft and charges relatively little electrostatically. Polypropylene is a lightweight plastic fibre that is also traded as the most environmentally friendly synthetic fibre in the carpet sector. Since the moisture-repellent synthetic fibre has to be nuzzled, it achieves a particularly high light resistance and color fastness. Synthetic fibre carpets made of polypropylene have high impact sound and thermal insulation. Last, it is distinguished for the use of under floor heating. Polypropylene is a particularly inexpensive synthetic fibre and is increasingly used in today’s carpet production.
If you are toying with the idea of prostliciting synthetic fibre carpet from polypropylene, then they should take into account that polypropylism is sensitive to machine load and quickly flattens. This stand-off can be decisive, especially in the case of high-flower carpets.
The synthetic fibre derived from cellulose is also often referred to as artificial silk. Its velvety brilliance gives it a noble character. In carpet making, viscose is often used to highlight details and give the carpet a graceful touch. Compared to silk, the synthetic fibre impresses above all with its low price. Unfortunately, viscose also pollutes much faster. In its properties, viscose resembles cotton. It feels softer and more velvety, but cannot achieve the strength of the natural fiber. Since viscose has a high absorbency, the synthetic fiber can be dyed particularly well. However, it is also the high absorbency that makes viscose difficult and slow to dry. Plastic fibre carpets made of viscose can still be moist after a carpet cleaning without feeling like this or looking like this.
As a wool-like synthetic fibre, polyacrylic is one of the most common synthetic fibres. Its soft and elastic structure makes it a sought-after wool substitute in the carpet industry. Even wetness and cold can do nothing to polyacrylic. It dries quickly, is very easy to care for, dirt-repellent and rot-resistant. The durable synthetic fibre also has good light resistance and colour fastness. Sounds almost as good as the original? Yes, but only almost. Unfortunately, you have to do without the room-air-regulating property of real wool when purchasing a polyacrylic carpet.
Polyester is used as a collective term for various synthetic plastics. Polyethylene terephthalate, also better known as PET, is most common. From it, new mixtures such as organza, pannesamt and satin emerge. Polyester has excellent tear resistance and durability properties. The high light resistance and colour brilliance make polyester a sought-after carpet fibre. In addition, polyester fibres are stable in shape. This is why they are often used for second backs in carpets. Due to the moisture-repellent and quick-drying properties of polyester, the synthetic fibre is also often used in bath mats and for kitchen carpets. Visually, polyester impresses with its silky shine.
All synthetic fibres have in common that they have a high electrostatic charge compared to natural fibers. Overall, however, it is resistant and easier to care for than natural fibres. Last but not least, carpets made of synthetic fibre are often a good deal cheaper.
That is all. Thank you all for your attention! Stay tuned!
