5 Top Tips for Your Pre-Christmas Clean

Tags: ,

Christmas is just around the corner, meaning it’s that time of year when you are likely to have a few more guests than usual. Before friends and family pay a visit over the festive season, you might want to consider cleaning your carpets to make sure they are looking and smelling fresh when your visitors arrive.

Using a Vax carpet cleaner like the Platinum Power Max is a great way to clean deep down in the fibres of your carpet, allowing you to achieve superb carpet cleaning results and impress your guests when they come over. Not only that, it is a handy tool to have when you need to clean up accidents and spills – which are bound to happen over the Christmas period!

Take a look at our top carpet cleaning tips below, and get the most out of your carpet cleaner while getting your home ready for Christmas…

Prepare your carpets

First, clear the area as much as possible so that you can navigate quickly and easily around the room. Remove any large obstacles and plan your route ahead of time. Make sure you start cleaning your carpets in the far corner and work your way back to the door.

Vacuum first!

You should always give your carpets a thorough vacuum before you use a carpet cleaner. This should lift the majority of large dirt and debris trapped within the carpet pile and prevent your carpet cleaner from getting clogged.

Target high traffic areas

Where in your home gets trampled on the most? Perhaps it’s the hallway entrance or maybe your living room. Target these areas first with our pre-treatment solution and pre-treatment wand included with the Vax Platinum Power Max Carpet Cleaner. Spray the concentrated solution on the affected areas, let it sit for roughly 30 minutes and then clean with a carpet cleaner. This will lift your carpet pile and any embedded, discoloured stains.

Use the best cleaning solution for the ultimate clean

We recommend using Vax’s Platinum Professional solution, our best performing solution which deep cleans your carpets, removes tough stains and neutralises bad odours. It’s the perfect solution to use alongside your carpet cleaner, if you want to guarantee the best results from your pre-Christmas clean.

Don’t forget to clean upholstery, stairs and mattresses

If you’ve chosen a machine with an upholstery tool, then take advantage of all it has to offer – especially if you will be having people stay over the festive period. You can clean stairs (a high traffic area), sofas, and mattresses using the stretch hose and attachment. This way you gain a total home clean and get professional results all around your home, not just beneath your feet.

Now all you have to do is sit back, enjoy the festivities and have a very Merry Christmas!
