How To Keep Carpets Clean
How To Keep Carpets Clean After A Professional Carpet CleaningSo, you got a cleaning. Now, keep it as clean as you can with these tips. The most obvious tip is to stay on top of vacuuming. If you let dirt, hair, and dust buildup, you will need cleanings more often than you otherwise would. We recommend vacuuming at least twice per week or more, depending on the volume of traffic on the carpets. There’s often dirt and dust the human eye cannot see. So, vacuuming at least 1 to 2 times per week will keep those carpets looking fresh!
Clean up stains as soon as possible. It’s no secret that leaving stains to stew in your carpet isn’t a great idea. Blot the stain, don’t rub. Also, since we’re all about natural cleaning solutions, we recommend doing the same. You can use boiling water on a stain to help dilute it and then soak it up. Great things to have on hand in order to avoid using harsh chemicals: baking soda, dish soap, and vinegar.
Remove shoes before walking on carpets. This is another common tip that can sometimes slip through the cracks. Some people may do this for a few days after a cleaning but forget to enforce it. Then, the carpets get dingy and dirty again. Along with removing your shoes, you can get a doormat. Doormats are a great way to make sure you wipe off your feet and remove your shoes before coming inside.
Use an eco-friendly carpet protectant. Carpet protectants are a great way to prevent stains and soil buildup. They’re usually water repellent and provide a barrier against most stains.
Finally, the last thing you can do to keep your carpets looking like new is to perform regular maintenance with a professional service. We suggest having carpets professionally cleaned every 3 to 5 years for the best results and maintenance of your carpeted surfaces.
