Care for your Carpets
Carpets are a great form of adding value to a room and seem effortless. Though the maintenance of carpets is difficult when compared to normal floors, many people tend to prefer having carpets at their homes. Our homes in Perumbakkam are spacious and designed well to have carpets in the rooms. Here are few tips to keep your carpet fresh and bright this monsoon!
Regular dusting and cleaning of the carpet is very important, to remove shredding dead fibre and flyaway which may cause allergies during rainy season if inhaled.
It is very vital to keep your carpet clean and free from dampness during the monsoon season. Frequent vacuuming, as recurrent as twice a week, is recommended to clean dirt, moulds or any other residual from the carpet.
In case of any accidental spillage or dampness on the rug, to get rid of foul odour and moisture, it’s advisable to spread the carpet under the sun to dry.
Most people avoid using rugs in the monsoon season to prevent any damage altogether. While you’re storing away your carpet for the monsoon, remember to roll it instead of folding, to protect from moisture and spills. Also add silica gel pouches to the stored carpet for absorption of any remaining or existing dampness.
Instead of heavy wool and silk rugs, opt for beautiful alternatives like cotton carpets or durries, which are lightweight and dry quickly leading to less damage or fungus from the rains.
