One of the concerns some people have about installing carpet involves the risk of spills and stains on such a flooring surface. This is especially true for those with small children and pets as families want to be able to enjoy their home together without being too restrictive, so it can seem that alternative flooring options would be better suited.
However, whilst tiles and wooden or laminate flooring may seem like a good idea for some rooms, it is nice to have the option of a carpeted room as it offers a cosy feeling and can help insulate the room, making it perfect for the UK’s harsh winters.
The solution to this issue is to install a bleachable carpet. The bleach proof properties of carpets in this range enable you to clean your carpet without affecting the appearance of it, so that when accidents happen, there’s no need to worry about it leaving a permanent mark.
Whether red wine, coffee, or mud, these bleach resistant carpets will be the answer to your prayers. Usually manufactured from a specially developed high-quality polypropylene fibre, these carpets help to repel any spills, as the liquid sits on top of the fibres, giving you time to clean it up.
If any of the liquid or mud does get into the carpet fibres, you can use bleach to clean it up, using a mixture that is 50% bleach and 50% water. Liquid spills should be blotted straight away, and never rubbed, whilst solids should be scraped away before vacuuming. Any excess marks should be cleared away easily with bleach or a specific carpet cleaning product.
Once dry, your bleachable carpet will be back to being soft, comfortable and clean. Here at Flooring Direct, we have an extensive range of bleachable carpets, meaning that you don’t have to be restrictive with your design ideas and you’re sure to find something to suit you.
