Proper cleaning and maintenance of your carpet not only adds years of life to it, but also goes a long way in keeping you and your home healthy. We get a lot of questions from our customers and the most common is probably this: Now that my carpet is clean, what can I do to keep it that way?
Most carpet cleaning experts agree that one of the main components of keeping a carpet clean and enhancing its longevity is regular vacuuming. Vacuuming once or twice a week is ok, but more regular vacuuming may be more beneficial from 3 or more times a week in some spots to daily in the heavy traffic areas of your home. Regular vacuuming is important because it removes soil and many other contaminants (such as allergens) before they are ground in to the carpet. Soil is your carpet’s worst enemy, and even bare feet can grind soil and dust from the air in to the carpet. Be sure that your vacuum is clean, inspecting the brushes for lint and string that should be removed. You should also check the suction port and air pathway regularly. A healthy vacuum will go a very long way in keeping your carpet in good condition.
Of course, all the vacuuming in the world won’t get rid of spots on your carpet. Maybe you spilled your evening coffee, or your child rolled their sippy cup through the room. We have seen it all! Most small spot can be removed easily right at home, and without the “revolutionary stain lifters” you can buy in the grocery store. Since most modern carpets are manufactured with stain guard, a clean white cloth, and a small amount of water with a touch of club soda or vinegar will usually do the trick. Rather than saturating the spot, the carpet should be blotted with the damp cloth. More often than not, the spot will come right out.
Following these quick and easy tips is the surefire way to keep your carpet looking great in between cleanings.
