Best Vacuum for Carpets
If you’re looking for the best vacuum for carpets, you’re probably looking at a Sebo. Let’s take a look at the different types of carpet and the best vacuum for you.
Carpets come in many different styles, materials and colours. They can be made from either wool or artificial fibres such as polyester (nylon). Different types of carpets have their own unique qualities that may suit certain people better than others; for example 100% pure new wool carpets will always produce a softer touch while sisal is more durable with an elastic feel underfoot but doesn’t last nearly so long when compared against other options available on the market today.
It is important that you are aware of the carpet type/s you have, as this can have major implications for care and maintenance.
Cut Pile Carpets
Cut Pile is a type of carpet that has been sheared so that the tips of the fibres form the surface, rather like upright bits of string. There are variations like twist which is the most popular and velvet (or velour).
The popularity of twist pile carpet is probably due to its durability, ease of cleaning and keeping its appearance. This type can be vacuumed by any type of vacuum cleaner but a top-quality upright vacuum such as the Sebo X7 Pet will bring up the pile most effectively. Velvet carpets (and less so Saxony) have a beautiful look, but disadvantages include showing footprints along with tracks left behind from your regular vacuuming routine. However, some people like vacuum lines.
Loop Pile Carpet
Loop Pile is a type of carpet that has loops instead of straight fibres. The appearance can be appealing, but it also requires care and maintenance because these carpets are prone to wear which affects their light reflection properties as well as how easily stains take hold on the surface due to its looped structure.
The most important thing about caring for your wool loop carpet is checking with the manufacturer. This will ensure that you know what steps are safe and appropriate, as brush action can cause pilling or other damage to carpets with wool loops.
If you are looking for a perfect carpet to create that cosy feeling in your home, then consider purchasing one with loop fibres. However, be aware of how often they get fluffy because even the most gentle vacuums can cause damage if used too much or have long-term dirt build up on them which will lead to pilling over time.
If you are considering buying this type of carpet, please establish its suitability for the area to be fitted and the type of vacuum cleaner you want to use. A delicate floor brush roller is available for Sebo uprights which may be more suitable.
But with wool loop carpets, the onus is always on you to read the manufacturer’s data and choose the correct vacuum.
The colour of carpet you choose is very important to achieve the desired look for your home, but the choice of colour can affect care and maintenance. Light-coloured carpets will mark very easily and conversely, fibres will show up on black or very dark carpets. The best colours for long-term appearance are mid to darkish greys, blues and browns or ones with a light pattern.
Looking After New Carpets
With a little care and attention, you will be able to greatly extend the life of your carpet and keep it looking its best. Many people seem to think that when a carpet is new it should not be vacuumed. In fact, there’s no need to wait, you can vacuum straight away if you want. You may be surprised how many fibres are vacuumed out, and your carpet may also shed some fluff for some time after fitting.
The shedding is caused by short lengths of loose fibres left over from the manufacturing process. When a new cut pile carpet is vacuumed, sometimes odd tufts or loose strands stand above the pile. This is called sprouting and is quite normal. Tufts that are longer than the others are compressed in the pile and are lifted up by vacuuming. They should be trimmed off with a pair of scissors if they trouble you rather than pulling them, as you don’t want to damage your carpet.
Why a Good Vacuum is Important
From the outside, dirt and tiny pieces of grit can get trapped in your carpet. This leads to an increased risk for premature wear as it’s walked on as these particles are crushed against the fibres which cause damage over time. Vacuum daily with a good quality vacuum like a Sebo if you have heavily used areas or weekly at most – this will help keep everything looking spic-and-span while reducing wear over time.
Keeping soil and grit away from your carpet is recommended to maintain its appearance and value. Use entrance mats to capture dirt and grit before it comes into the house. This not only keeps your carpet looking better but also helps protect the fibres from abrasion and dulling. Entrance mats need to be large enough that a few steps are taken on them when entering the house. Vacuum them often and consider cleaning them with a product such as SEBO Duo-P to ensure they do not become a source of dirt.
Rugs can be a great way to keep your carpet looking like new. They’re especially useful in areas that receive high levels of wear, such as front porches or living rooms where people spend time sitting on furniture with their feet up while watching TV. The friction from these activities will damage the pile causing flattening and dulling, which is why using a runner or a rug makes sense for you if this sounds familiar.
Do you wear shoes in the house? Wearing slippers means your carpet will not get dirtier or grit from shoes tearing at the pile of your carpet; they’re also harder soled which means that even if you step on some hidden grit while wearing them, it won’t crush against any soft fibres for greater durability.
Beware of sun! The sun’s harmful UV rays can cause discolouration and even damage to your carpet. To protect them, close curtains or place a light-coloured rug over the exposed area of flooring so that you don’t end up with an ugly faded colour in every room!
Choose the Right Carpet
If you’re thinking about getting carpet for your home, it’s important to speak to a carpet shop for advice. There are many different types of carpet available, and not all carpet is suitable for every room. For example, wool loop carpet is often better suited to bedrooms and living rooms, while twist carpet is more durable and therefore ideal for high-traffic areas such as hallways and stairs. The type of carpet you choose should also be determined by the level of foot traffic in the room. Areas with heavy foot traffic will need more durable carpets that can withstand continual wear and tear. By speaking to a carpet shop, you can get expert advice on the best type of carpet for your needs.
