Carpets give you the makings of a true home because they are such a long term purchase. For that reason, we’re giving you four carpet cleaning hacks to keep your carpets in pristine condition.
Make sure that you get a deep carpet cleaning as often as needed. To achieve a dirt free carpet, you’ll need to have it cleaned by a professional. A thorough cleaning is usually needed every six months or so.
Keep your eye out for spills so that you can get to them before they have a chance to become a part of your carpet. Simply using water on a spill can help in some cases. If that doesn’t work then you will need several products out there on the market that can help you get rid of spills quickly. The products range in use and can be helpful when matching them with different types of spills. You can also use a mixture of water and vinegar to help remove some stains. However, some stains can be more difficult to remove. For these the best course of action is to hire a professional.
A clean carpet is a carpet that has been taken care of very well. You should always take the time to vacuum your carpet often and make sure you do a good job. This means going over the floor in several directions to allow the vacuum time to pick up all it can. High quality vacuums are the best choice, as they can get up the most debris when you are carpet cleaning.
By using a door mat you can help make it easy for people entering your home to clean their shoes before they track soil onto your carpet. Place a mat at every entrance to your home from the outside and make sure that anyone who enters your home uses these mats. You can also take off your shoes and request that guests do the same, prior to entering your home. Around 80% of the soils that enter a building or home are dry. The remaining 20% are greases, oils, and starches. The dry soil types are easily removed by vacuuming. As long as they are removed on a daily basis, it will help to minimize damage to your carpet.
Maintaining and keeping a clean carpet is more than just healthy, as it can also help to prolong the life of the carpet. If you have just laid the carpet, you are already aware of the expenses involved with doing so. Even if you haven’t had this done, you probably know the benefits of keeping a clean carpet. A clean carpet will add value to your home as long as it is well maintained. It will also help to keep your home free from odors.
