Your carpet is an important part of your home. Not only does it add comfort and style, but it also helps to protect your floor from dirt, dust, and other debris. However, carpets can quickly become stained and matted if they are not properly cared for. The key to keeping your carpet looking its best is to develop a regular carpet cleaning routine.
If you’re wondering what types of activities should be included in your routine, the following four tips from our carpet cleaners might help. We recommend implementing them and consider it a great way to maintain cleanliness!
Tip #1: Vacuum Often
Although it may not seem like it, vacuuming is an important part of keeping your carpet clean. Waiting until the carpet is visibly dirty can actually make the problem worse, as dirt and debris will have a chance to work their way into the fabric of the carpet. Regular vacuuming will help to prevent this from happening, as well as keep the surface of the carpet free of dirt. In addition, vacuuming on a regular basis will also help to extend the life of your carpet by preventing dirt and debris from reaching the backing pad, where it can cause more damage. Ultimately, vacuuming is an essential part of keeping your carpet clean and in good condition.
Tip #2: Deal With Stains ASAP
As anyone who has ever dealt with a stained carpet can attest, it is important to act quickly when spills occur. The longer a stain is allowed to sit, the harder it becomes to remove. One way to remove a stain is to absorb any excess pigment with a white cloth. Simply dab the cloth on the affected area until no more color comes off on the cloth. Once the excess color has been removed, you can then call in a professional carpet cleaner. Carpet cleaners have specialized equipment that can remove even the most stubborn stains without spreading them to the surrounding fibers. As a result, they are often the best option for removing tough stains.
Tip #3: Avoid Getting Dirt Into the Home
One simple way to keep your carpet cleaner is to have a “no shoes in the house” policy. This policy will limit the amount of dirt and contaminants your carpet is exposed to in the first place if you’re having trouble making this policy stick, at the very least use doormats both inside and outside your home to limit the amount of dirt from being tracked inside.
