Soil particles, silica and sand can damage carpet fibres through abrasion, wear and discolouration. Soiling is a cumulative process which, if left unaddressed, cannot easily be reversed.

Vacuum Flotex Carpet Tiles

Frequent and thorough vacuuming with the right vacuum cleaner for the floor type is the most important component of a comprehensive carpet maintenance program, as it is the most effective way to minimise soiling, prolongs the life, enhances the appearance of the carpet and improves carpet hygiene.
Vacuuming should encompass slow, deliberate passes in length and width for maximum effectiveness. The slow movement will allow time for air to circulate through the carpet and extract soil. Several passes should be made over each area to ensure effective removal of soiling material, particularly in heavy traffic areas.
Vacuum cleaning should be carried out in accordance with the procedures given in AS/NZS 3733
