December is a wonderful time of year - social calendars get booked up, there is a party pretty much every day, food and drink flows in abundance and festive cheer is in the air.
However, once the parties have finished and the last mince pie has gone, a lot of people sober up to the reality that their beautiful carpets now carry the scars of the past season. Brie and cranberry canapés are trodden into the floor, wine spillages have set and taken shape and those fluorescent shots that someone couldn’t quite handle have embedded their way deep into the cream carpet fibres of function room floors across the UK.
To help prevent these post-Christmas blues we’ve put together our top recommendations of essential products for clean carpets this Christmas.
