Synthetic fiber carpets have been popular for many years due to their practicality. They are wear-resistant, retain an attractive appearance for a long time, and are easily cleaned from visible contaminants. Therefore, carpets of this type are widely used in offices, public institutions, shopping centers. Many homeowners also prefer artificial fiber rugs as they are easier to care for than natural-material rugs.

Despite the relative ease of care, carpets made of synthetic fibers need both daily household cleaning and regular professional washing using chemicals. This is determined by the characteristics of artificial materials.

What to do with stains? 

The secret to stain-free carpets is simple - get rid of them immediately. The advice is relevant for carpets made of any type of fiber. Synthetics are even easier. Stains can be removed with a cloth and soapy water. It is prepared from laundry soap or washing powder. We recommend soap as a more environmentally friendly option. With a clean cloth, apply foam to the stain, gently rub the pile. Repeat the procedure until the stain disappears. Try not to wet the pile and the base abundantly so that they dry quickly and completely.
