Top Tips for Your New Carpet

When you get a new carpet for your home, it is important that you make the most of your new carpet. With these easy tips from Joe Walker’s Flooring, you can ensure that your carpet truly completes your home.

Is it Normal for Your New Carpet to Shed?

When your new carpet is first laid, it is completely normal to see some fluffing or shedding from your carpet. This tends to happen as any loose fibres trapped during the weaving process work towards the surface. This is completely normal and is certainly nothing to worry about. Regularly vacuuming your carpet for the first few weeks will pick up any of the fibres your carpet has shed, and after a few weeks the shedding will settle.

Footprints in Your Carpet

Carpets made up of extra-long, super-soft or pile carpets are very soft and comfortable underfoot as your feet sink into the carpet. These deep-pile carpets have a tendency to show footprints and may appear different shades in areas due to the longer and deeper fibres and the way they catch the light. Again, this is nothing to worry about and adds to the beauty of your new carpet.

Unusual Smell After Fitting

Once your new carpet has been fitted, you may experience a slight odour in the room. This may be caused by the carpet, the underlay or any adhesive which may have been used. This is nothing to be concerned about and by ventilating the room, the smell should vanish in no time at all. Check out our last post for more ideas on how to revamp your home in 2017.
