Vacuum from the very first day

This ensures that any residual fibres, dust and dirt from the laying process are removed.

Vacuum regularly – using a hard nozzle

Vacuum cleaning is the most common way of cleaning carpets, allowing for the removal of dust and dry dirt.
Efficient vacuum cleaning is about both suction power and the shape of the nozzle in relation to the type of flooring. For carpets containing wool and natural fibres, you should always use a smooth nozzle without brushes.

Remove spots immediately

The sooner you remove a stain, the easier it is to take if off. You will also reduce the risk of it spreading to a larger area. Generally, using a dry, colourless cloth is the best way to remove spilt liquids; do not rub the spot, but work from outer to inner edges.

See tips in our guide to removing stains

Use the correct stain removal product

There are many effective stain removal products on the market. Contact your local danfloor distributor for advice and guidance on the most suitable product for taking care of your carpet.
Test the product on a remnant or an unobtrusive place to be sure of the result. Remember to apply the correct dose, so that you will avoid leaving any product in the carpet itself.
