There is no other flooring material available that provides the comfort and warmth that carpet does. Carpet is an excellent option for almost every room in your home, but, without proper care, it can become dirty and dingy quickly. By taking just a few preventative measures, you can keep your carpet looking clean and beautiful for decades.
Vacuuming regularly is one of the most important ways you can care for your carpet and prevent serious damage. Dirt, dust, dander, food particles, and other allergens are constantly building up on your floor, and if they’re not removed regularly, they can easily get pushed down into the fibers of the carpet and become difficult, if not impossible, to remove. Soiled carpet can make even the most beautifully decorated room look gross.
Determining the frequency you should be vacuuming depends completely on the traffic you have moving through your house. While a house with pets and kids will require almost daily vacuuming, a person living alone or just with their spouse may only need to vacuum once or twice a week. When you do vacuum, be sure to do a thorough job, moving the vacuum slowly back and forth across the carpet, and utilizing the attachments meant for baseboards to clean the hard-to-reach places in your rooms.
2. Spot Cleaning
Spot cleaning is another important part of the carpet cleaning regimen. Stains and other spots should be treated as soon as they are identified to prevent them from causing permanent damage to the carpet. When your carpet is free from spots and stains, it holds up better and looks nicer, allowing it to last for much longer than it otherwise would.
3. Interim Cleaning
While it’s not always possible to have a professional clean your carpets as much as you might like, you can achieve a similar clean with interim cleanings. Whether you own a carpet cleaner or rent one from the store, it is recommended that you clean your carpets yourself in between professional cleanings to decrease the amount of buildup within the carpet fibers. Interim cleaning allows you to remove the stains that spot treating can’t quite get out, making your carpet look cleaner longer.
4. Restorative Cleaning
Restorative cleaning is best performed by a professional who has access to the tools and cleaners needed to properly clean your carpet. While the above-mentioned cleanings keep your carpet looking nice, restorative cleanings are the only way you can truly extend the life of your carpet. With the help of a professional, you can rest assured knowing that your carpets are sanitized and restored to pristine condition.
