Barrier mats
Barrier mats to help keep your carpet clean. All types of flooring get dirty although some show soiling more than others. Wool rich carpets, because of the nature of the wool fibre, will generally hide soiling better than synthetic products and will also be easier to clean. However it is a good idea to use small mats or an off-cut of your new carpet in kitchen doorways or in other areas where the carpet is next to a hard floor to prevent greasy spots spreading to the carpet. Doorways where there is street access will also benefit from a small off-cut or rug. Please remember to keep these mats clean so that soil does not spread from them to the carpet.The Big Red Carpet Company recommends upright vacuum cleaners or canisters with power brush attachments for cut pile carpets. For loop-pile carpets we recommend a cylinder vacuum cleaner without a brushing action or an upright machine with the brushes raised or turned off.


Vacuuming
Vacuuming is the most important thing you can do to keep your carpet clean. You cannot over-vacuum a carpet! We recommend an upright vacuum cleaner with a cylindrical brushing action or a cylinder vacuum cleaner with a power-brush attachment, for cut-pile carpets. When vacuuming a chunky loop/textured pile carpet, we recommend avoiding an upright vacuum with a beater brush, as this can damage the integrity of the loops and cause them to become fluffy. This is even more important when going for a thicker, chunkier loop.
