To clean the carpet, we’d recommend using an upright or quality barrel vacuum cleaner fitted with a power-driven rotating brush. Alternatively, you could use a combination beater or brush bar that moves around the carpet pile and mechanically loosens dirt to be removed by the vacuum. This is best suited for low cut pile carpet. To prevent excess fuzzing turn the brush off or change the head when vacuuming loop pile, cut and loop or Berber carpet.
Yes, this carpet is suitable for use with castor chairs. However, the use of castor chair protection mats is recommended for all textile floor coverings.
You do not need to use underlay with Universal Plus Impervious Foam-backed carpet as it has an impervious backing and can be stuck directly to the sub-floor. However, if you want to put underlay down, you should use a double-stick underlay without gripper rods as this will put holes into the backing which will void the backing guarantee.
The Universal Plus carpet can technically be cleaned with a bleach solution as it is a solution-dyed product, meaning it will retain its colour as the dye goes all the way through the yarn. However, we would advise against this as bleach can damage the backing and subfloor and be harmful to the environment.
