Spruce things up for Spring

Spring has arrived and it’s the perfect time to get your home ready for the months ahead of entertaining.

  • You know the feeling. You’re having a party and with only a few days to go, all you can see are the areas that you still haven’t cleaned! In an ideal world our houses would always be ‘party prepared’ but who has the time? You can see the areas that need cleaned….but what about the hidden dirt and dust!
  • While you might vacuum your carpets and rugs regularly and think they are spotless, did you know that the fabric may actually be hiding up to 5kgs of dirt per square metre. Apart from making them look grimy, this trapped dirt slowly cuts away at the base fibres drastically reducing the life of the material. Vacuuming helps get rid of the surface grit but the only way to give it a deep clean is using hot water extraction with a machine like a Britex carpet cleaner, that you can hire from a local supermarket and do yourself easily and efficiently.

  • Britex Carpet Care is Australia’s largest provider of DIY rental carpet cleaning machines with over 30 years of trusted service. The Britex machines provide a wet clean which, unlike steam cleaning, gets right down to the fibres of the carpet giving it a deeper clean. The hot water extraction method removes the toughest dirt from carpets safely and gently. It works by injecting hot water, combined with special cleaning products, deep into the carpet fibres. Powerful suction then removes the water and engrained dirt, dust and allergens. You are left with clean, rejuvenated and fresher carpet.

  • To make your Spring spruce up easier, work from the top down. Dust and clean with a long-handled brush or vacuum attachment. Don’t forget about the layer of dust on the ceiling fan! Place old sheets over your sofas and chairs to catch the falling dust. Write down a plan of attack. Having a list keeps you on track and it feels good to tick off your jobs! Take it one room at a time. Seeing the finished results in one room will inspire you to keep going.
  • So, all that’s left to do is vacuum your clean, fresh carpets and you’re ready to party. Just return the Britex machine, throw on your party dress and pop a cork!
