The Vacuum Cleaner

Why Is The Routine Maintenance Of A Carpet Important?

Sand and dirt are nothing more that very tiny rocks. These rocks along with foot traffic will cut and break down carpet fibres and upholstery fibres – much like sandpaper. This breakdown of the carpet and upholstery fibres will result in premature wear. If the dry gritty soil is not removed frequently, the carpet or upholstery becomes permanently damaged before it wears out.

Because of every day time constraints most carpets are NOT vacuumed effectively, people adopt the ‘cherry picking’ approach.

Over 80% of dirt within the carpet fibres is loose and can be vacuumed away providing the job is carried out well. That means vacuuming across the pile East to West AND down the pile North to South

Tips For Effective Vacuuming:

The Frequency:

  • Heavy traffic areas – vacuum daily
  • Medium traffic areas – vacuum two or three times a week
  • Light traffic areas – vacuum once or twice a week
  • Upholstery – vacuum once a week.

Having The Right ‘100% Functioning’ Vacuum:

  • Suitable for the specific area
  • Powerful suction and proper filtration
  • Properly maintained

Inspect The Vacuum Periodically:

  • Keep the brushes clean and replace them when they are worn
  • Keep the hoses and attachments free of obstructions
  • Inspect the vacuum for rough edges that may damage your carpet or soft furnishings
  • Inspect the belts frequently to make sure that they are working properly
  • Keep a spare belt for replacement if needed

Filter Bags:

  • When a vacuum bag is more than two thirds full, the efficiency of the vacuum decreases
  • It is important to check filter bags every time the vacuum is used
  • In high traffic conditions, vacuuming should be carried out daily

Regular cleaning and checking of the equipment maintains the suction and prolongs the life of the filter and vacuum cleaner. It also results in more effective vacuuming and ensures a healthier and more comfortable environment.

We recently purchased a new sofa and wanted to protect it from any potential spills. I rang Aqua-Dry, the very helpful Hannah explained the process and cost structure and was able to book me in the next day. I would highly recommend the excellent professional services of Aqua-Dry. The coating is applied there were no strong smells and no disruption. They are helpful, efficient and very courteous. The company comes recommended by both Frank McGowan Furniture and Arnotts Department Store and us! Thank you Tom!

I had a bit of a crisis involving spilled paint on carpet. Aqua-Dry Carpet Cleaners came to my rescue! They were finishing a job nearby and were able to get to me within a half hour. They told me to keep the carpet wet while I waited for them to arrive. When they got here they got to work right away and they were able to get all the paint up! After they left they called and told me to watch out for any paint that may come up from the concrete and to call if I noticed anything and they will come back out. I'm really impressed at how quickly they responded to my call and how professional they were. The price was extremely affordable. I would use them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone needing their carpets cleaned.

I have used many different companies, primarily because I never found one worth to have back. The others weren't bad, they just didn't give me a reason to hire them again. Not the case here. Aqua-Dry Carpet Cleaners could not be more professional. Arrived on-time and did a fantastic job! My carpets were clean fresh and looked like new.

I was delighted with Aqua-Dry services. What a great work they did on my rug. I am thrilled to see the refreshed, totally clean and looking like new rug. Although it takes quite a long time to get your item back and it is not a cheap service, it totally worth waiting and paying. I would definitely recommend Aqua-Dry and will be using them again.

Just had Tom and his son cleaning my carpets. What a terrific job they did, they told me I had moths in my sitting room eating merrily away at my carpet but were very reassuring that they could deal efficiently with the problem and advised me how to avoid it in the future. My carpets came up like new especially the stairs which is down for about 14 years. I would highly recommend Aqua-Dry and will certainly use them exclusively in the future. Thanks a million

Delighted with our rugs! We've just moved back into our house after three long months out for repairs and wanted to make the most of this opportunity by freshening everything up. Aqua-Dry took away all our rugs for cleaning and stored them for us until we got back and they were like new on return. We have a few Oriental rugs which need to be cleaned by hand and I don't trust these to just anyone. Thank you for a very professional service and for going that extra mile.

After a bug passing through the house I needed the carpetes cleaned. Aqua dry were quick to respond. Tony did a super job on the bedroom carpets and a few spots along the way. He was prompt, efficient, friendly and a pleasure to have around. Will defiantly be calling on aqua dry again. Thanks guys.

I honestly couldn't be happier with the service. Tom collected and returned the rug when he said he would and it came back looking so much better. We got it cleaned because our cat had peed on it a few times last year but I didn't realise how much everyday dust and dirt had built up in it over 10 years even though it's vacuumed every week. It came back looking noticeably brighter and the wool had its lovely lustre back. The pile was also fuller and softer. I hadn't appreciated how flattened down it had become. I'll definitely be recommending Aqua-Dry to anyone I know who needs their rug cleaned.
