Carpet tiles in Dubai are fast becoming a popular flooring technique as they offer a brilliant, cost-effective alternative for carpeting. Rather than going for a single colored monotonous carpet, you can choose carpet tiles, which come in a variety of patterns and can be mixed and matched to create new designs. Apart from flexibility in designs, they are convenient to maintain and replace also.
But in hotels and guest houses, there is a lot of traffic which causes wear and tear. In such conditions, carpet tiles in Dubai need to be taken care of regularly to ensure their longevity. Following are some easy tips that you can follow to ensure long life of your carpet tiles:
- Vacuuming is essential to any carpet care even carpet tiles. Vacuum regularly, at least twice or thrice a week.
- Spot treatment: What should we do if we have a spot over the carpet tile somewhere around ?
There are several spot cleaning tips for carpet tiles
o Take care when using some solvent and check it first in the dark colored area or a spare tile
o After spotting a stain, don’t pour the cleaning agent directly onto the carpet; apply it on the sponge or the cloth. Then rub this sponge or cloth on the carpet.
o Do not rub the ink stain or blood stain (or blot stain)
o Always treat the spots working from outside to the inwards towards center
o Always rinse thoroughly after treating the spot with water-solvent solvent.
o Dry the spot where the stain was, after cleaning it. You may use hair drier for drying too.
o Some carpet tiles have bitumen on the back side; you can’t use any solvent to clean it. Think twice before using any of them.
o If a tile of a bigger size gets stained, remove it, wash it in the sink, and then simply place it back when cleaned and dried.
- Deep Cleaning: This is a professional process. This cleans the stained carpet tile thoroughly and leaves the carpet tile moisture-less. This should be done after 8-12 months only, depending upon the condition of the carpet tiles. Best methods of deep cleaning are wet extraction or steam cleaning for nylon and polyester tiles and dry cleaning methods for wool fiber tiles. Carpet tiles are widely used throughout the world, but with the extensive use of the Carpet tiles Dubai does, there should be proper attention given to their maintenance.
So, vacuum the tiles yourself few times a week, try to clean the spot yourself if possible, and ultimately, go for the deep cleaning once in 8 months or so. This all will ensure a long life for your carpet tiles in Dubai.
