Caring for your Saxony carpet
Often used in living rooms or bedrooms, the Saxony has a dense, cut pile and is made with longer tufts than the other styles of carpet.
With the dense pile in mind you might need to move your furniture on a regular basis. Don’t worry – we’re not suggesting you rearrange the whole room every week – it’s just that because the longer, dense pile can show footprints and signs of heavy objects – it’s best to move the feet of your furniture a couple of inches to the side now and then to let the pile ‘breathe.’
As with most carpets, regular vacuuming is important. But as some Saxony’s will not only show footprints but vacuum marks too, we recommend that you don’t use the beater bar function and go for higher frequency, quick vacuuming rather than a more laboured approach.
Please see our Care and Maintenance section for our cleaning recommendations but also, in the case your beloved Saxony it’s well worth getting it professionally cleaned at least once, and preferably twice a year. And as we’re talking about a thicker pile carpet here which can harbour more than meets the eye, it’s not only an investment in your home’s beauty, but also your family’s health.
You can of course, deep clean your Saxony yourself. If you’re hiring professional equipment to clean your carpet yourself, we’d recommend a machine with a smooth wand or rotating brush attachment if using a spray extraction method or, if shampooing or foaming, use a cylindrical brush. If in doubt, ask the advice of the people you’re renting from or please ask us at Carpetright about cleaning your Saxony.
