Traditionally hand-spun from wool, early Berber carpets were considered to be a cleaning nightmare. Fortunately, today’s loop-piled floor covering is manufactured using a very durable synthetic weave called Olefin. Since the loop patterns are short, footsteps don’t leave prints and compressed traffic patterns are not a problem. Additionally, the polypropylene thread resists stains, doesn’t allow water to penetrate and more easily releases dirt from its weave. At Fabric & Tile Masters, we have a proven method for Berber carpet cleaning that works.
Regardless of the material used for the weave, good carpet cleaning begins with a thorough vacuuming using a commercial-grade machine with a built-in pile lifter. Next, we use our Cimex machine to provide a deep cleaning during the shampoo and conditioning phase. Unlike many traditional steam cleaning units, our hot water extraction technique effectively removes moisture from dense Berber weave and we use a special chemical that keeps stains from coming back. Just like other types of carpets, Berber cleaning should be performed every 6 to 12 months to prevent stubborn stains from becoming permanent reminders.
Because of its deep weave, Berber carpets should receive routine maintenance before the dirt has a chance to settle into the base. The more powerful the suction of your home vacuum the better.
