How can I remove stains from my carpet?
Prompt and immediate attention to any spillages or stains is paramount to avoid the penetration of a stain into the carpet fibres. Liquids (particularly hot liquids) must be attended to immediately. If allowed to cool or dry, the stain will be almost impossible to remove. Immediately remove as much of the spill as possible.Most common household food and beverage stains (not including stains containing strong dyes or substances which destroy or change the colour of carpet) need to be treated solely with cold water (for triexta, solution dyed nylon, polyester & polypropylene carpets) or warm water (for wool and wool blend carpets) immediately applied to the stained area. Read more about removing stains in our Care & Maintenance Guide.

What underlay should I use?
Carpet should always be installed with new, quality underlay. Underlay and carpet are designed to work together as a complete flooring system and underlay should always be used. Quality underlay will provide better comfort and resilience while extending the life of your carpet. Ask your retailer to match a quality underlay with the quality and proposed use of your carpet.
What vacuum cleaner should I used on my carpet?
Consider your carpet type when selecting a vacuum. Adjustable height and suction are important features as they enable your vacuum to be used on a wide variety of carpet constructions.Luxuriously thick, soft cut pile carpets: Use a high height setting so any beater bar/rotating brush just lightly touches the carpet surface. Use a suction level that allows the vacuum to move easily whilst lifting dirt and other foreign matter. Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suctions. Large wheels will ensure the vacuum glides easily across the carpet.Loop pile or long pile carpets (including cut loop and berber): Vacuum with suction only. Vacuum powerheads, beater bars and rotating brushes should never be used as they may cause excessive fuzzing of the pile surface.Other carpet constructions: Use a vacuum with a beater bar to agitate the pile and loosen any foreign matter in the pile
