The term frieze carpet applies to any deep pile rug where the fibres are long and durable. While deep pile rugs are famed for being soft, luxurious, and comforting to walk on, they can be a nightmare to clean if you don’t know what you’re doing. Let’s take a closer look at why this is…
If you were to take a closer look at a frieze carpet you’d notice that this type of carpet contains long fibres which are naturally twisted. Not only this, but the fibres also lie on their side. This creates a hard-wearing carpet that’s designed to conceal any solid debris. This means that any dust, dirt, pet hair, and insect particles can hide deep within this fibrous forest and entangle themselves. But that’s not all!
Because the fibres of a frieze carpet extend in all directions liquid and food stains are also difficult to treat. So why is this? With short pile carpets you have fibres that stand straight. This means that when any liquid is spilt it will react in a certain way. It spreads out in a predictable pattern making cleaning relatively easy. Conversely when liquid is spilt on a frieze carpet the outcome is far less predictable because the residue will always rest in a random state. This makes cleaning problematic and as a result, permanent discolouration or fibre damage is commonplace.
Regular vacuuming is a must
While regular vacuuming is recommended for all carpets, it needs to be carried out more frequently with long fibre textiles. This is because vacuuming only ever removes the top layer of dust or dirt particles. As long as they sit on the surface of your carpet then this is fine. However when particles are allowed to sink into the fibres, no amount of vacuuming will remove them. As the carpet is then walked on these particles are ground down. When this happens they act like sandpaper and slowly rub against the carpet fibres causing damage.
Call in the professionals to clean your Frieze Carpet
For the reasons listed above it pays to get your carpets professionally cleaned. Professionals have years of experience in the industry and know how to clean problematic carpets such as the Frieze. They have carpet beaters which agitate the fibres loosening any attached debris. This can then be removed leaving your carpet deep down-clean. In addition any stained or discoloured areas are treated in a thorough but sympathetic way leaving your carpet looking, smelling, and feeling like new. For best results and to prolong the life of your frieze carpet this should be carried out at least once a year.
