Damaged rug or carpet from bugs / wear

Is your carpet or rug being damaged by bugs ? Is your carpet or rug wearing out ?

What ever fiber you buy to cover your floor it will encounter wear and tear. There will be different effects from local conditions and how you use your home. Ask yourself is your home or work space affected by the following :

- Fumes from traffic / pollution / cooking in the kitchen( do you use alot of oil to cook)
- Are there plants that shed leaves / berries / fruits.
- A bitumen footpath
- Beach sand
- Dusty soil
- Heavy traffic wheel chairs , trolleys , many people 
- Coffee/Tea spills  
any many more.
These are walked onto the carpets and rugs and create challenges to maintain.  The fiber assets needs to be assessed to work out a correct maintenance procedure to reduce soil stains and repairs. If the fibers are not looked after then the fiber life is reduced and inevitably you will be replacing more often.

Can Rust be removed from carpet rug or upholstery ? Do you have a rust stain in your home ?

Have you tried to remove rust from your carpet rug chair ?

Rust : We must define what rust is :
Oxford Dictionary

 Noun A reddish- or yellowish-brown flaking coating of iron oxide that is formed on iron or steel by oxidation, especially in the presence of moisture:

So for rust to form on our precious fibers there needs to be moisture and a iron or steel to create and iron oxide. Carpet and rugs are usually effected by a chair,table or furniture tip rusting. These tips are insterted into the legs to protect the furniture and can rust when moisture is present.
Rust stains come from many sources
Water heater
 Pot Plant

Blood Stain
All these can treated and removed in most cases. The key to the removal is the time the stain has been on the fiber and what has been the previous treatment. Call Able Carpet Care 9562-7565 to treat adnd remove these stains from your carpet rug or upholstery

How do your rugs and carpets become soiled ? Do you Know? Have a look at this video

We have all purchased rugs and carpets to make our home or office reflect who we are and the colours we like in our home/office. 

There are 5 main things that effect your carpet or rug.

* What are they made from and how are they made. A cheap rug or carpet is machine made with the aim to make as much carpet or as many rugs as possible. The focus is on  volume not how long will the rug last.
* What colour! A lighter colour will not last as long as a darker colour, the rug/ carpet  will need more maintenance to look after it to ensure a long life.
* How are they used? A rug used in a high traffic area will fill with soil much faster than a rug in a light soiled areas such as a study. The soil filters through the fibre  and of left in the rug or carpet the soil will cut the fibres reducing the rug or carpets life considerably.

* How do you maintain the rug or carpet? Both need regular vacuuming , spot cleaning , dusting and restoration cleaning. Vacuuming must be with an agitating head vacuum to remove the most soil particles. Spot cleaning must be with approved spotter so the fibre is not damaged by the chemicial.
Restoration clean can be do by a professional - Able Carpet Care 03 95627565. They will vacuum, dust and clean your rugs and carpets. 

* Finally rotate your rugs or move the furniture on your carpet so the traffic is not in the one spot all the time. You may only need to replace carpet once in your life time.
