New Carpets, To Vacuum or not to Vacuum ?


Have you heard the common myth that you should let a new carpet “settle in” for a week or so?

In fact, the exact opposite is true.

Most new carpets will shed a small amount of loose fibres and these should be removed by vacuuming.

If left the fibres will be walked back into the carpet and can cause a matted appearance or even a Pilling effect similar to that found on a sweater.
