One of the best parts of Christmas is the holiday parties and meals with loved ones and friends. If you hosted a Christmas party in your home, you may have noticed the impact on your floors. With festive parties comes more foot traffic and higher possibility of spills, in fact, spills on the floor are almost a guarantee (Oh and let’s not forget about Christmas tree needles!) Here are some things you can do to help your carpet recoup as we start the new year.

Do a walkthrough of your party space, maybe even the entire house (because you never know if you had some wandering party guests) and pick up any rubbish, dirt, large food crumbs or anything else left behind on the carpet. This might seem obvious but you would be surprised at the things that can go unnoticed!
Walk back through the house looking for any spills that have not been noticed and therefore not received any attention. Use a clean white cloth to blot up any spills. For a list of carpet cleaning secrets read our knowledge centre page here. For a gentle all-purpose cleaner mix a small amount of mild dish soap with some cold water. Always be sure to blot, never rub and get the spot as dry as possible.
If those holiday candles dripped wax on the floor take the blunt side of a butter knife or a spoon and scrape as much off the carpet as possible. Then lay a clean cloth or several paper towels on top of the affected area and iron the spot with your iron on a low setting. This should transfer the wax out of the carpet and into the cloth.
When large items and spills have been cleaned it is now time to vacuum your carpets. Vacuuming is the easiest and best way to maintain your carpets look. Read our article on the benfits of clean carpets in the winter and also our article on the health benefits of clean carpets. Remember though, vacuuming alone isn't enough to keep your carpets clean. Read our article on why regular carpet cleaning is necessary.
After the holiday parties have come and gone, January is a great time to do your yearly professional deep carpet cleaning. Most carpet manufacturers recommend you have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months. Read our article on how often you should have your carpets cleaned. What better time to have your carpets professionally cleaned than January?
