Try To Keep Dirt Out
It is quite challenging to clean carpets. These soft fibres can easily become contaminated with all sorts of dirt and pests like dust mites and mould growth can easily infest your carpets. Preventative measures will keep your carpets cleaner so you won’t have to get extensive carpet cleaning quite as often and can prevent permanent damage caused by dirt. Try to follow good measures such as taking off your shoes when entering your home, keeping pets off your carpet areas and keeping the windows closed to reduce dust.
It is important to vacuum carpets often and frequently in order to remove dirt. To extend the life of your carpet you can vacuum 2 – 4 times a week. Vacuuming removes dirt and grime and keeps those carpet fibres nice and soft.
Spot Clean Immediately
Don’t wait for spills to dry before you start to treat these messes. If you can clean messes up immediately you could prevent these messes from soaking into the fibers and can prevent your carpet from getting stained. You might want to find out more about the best methods to treat different types of spills so you can apply the right treatment the moment the accident happens.
Get Professional Cleaning On a Regular Basis
Professional deep carpet cleaning is important for maintaining hygiene and to keep your carpets looking fresh and vibrant. You should hire a professional carpet cleaner like Complete Carpet Restoration every 1 to 2 years and get all of your carpets professionally treated. Regular deep cleaning will preserve your carpets and can save you a lot of money in the long run.
Rearrange Furniture Periodically
Furniture that sits in the same spot year in and out will make dent marks in your carpets and the longer these furniture pieces remain in the same spot the more extensive these dents become. When furniture pieces are logged in the same place all the time, it also creates an ideal environment for insects to dwell and these areas can become pretty messy and stained.
It is important to move your furniture around from time to time and to move your furniture every time you clean the room or carpets. This movement will create new traffic paths on your carpets which can also prevent flattened paths on your beautiful rugs.
