5 Professional Carpet Cleaning Maintenance Tips
- Apply a Carpet Protector Spray
These sprays lengthen the life of your carpet by increasing their durability. A carpet protector spray builds a bond around the fibers of a carpet; repelling dirt, food, water and other unwanted bacteria. It also improves at-home cleaning tremendously. Vacuuming and cleaning up spills become easier and more effective due to the new fiber bonds.
- Keep Your Pet’s Paws Clean
There is no doubt that we love our furry family members, but it’s hard not to get upset with them when they track in dirt and other grime. An easy way to prevent this is to wipe your pet’s paws when they come inside. Keep a spray bottle and towel handy by the door. A quick wipe down helps prevent them from tracking dirt around the house.
- Vacuum, Vacuum and Vacuum Again
Vacuuming at least once a week has a huge impact on cutting down the amount of dirt that can get trapped in your carpets. If you have pets or kids, consider vacuuming high-traffic areas every few days. Doing this helps prevent dirt from sitting on your carpet and getting pushed deeper into the fibers. If your carpet hosts dirt for a long period of time, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria and actually break down the fibers of your carpet. Vacuuming regularly helps extend your carpet’s life.
- Clean Spills Immediately
Even though it can be tempting to throw a towel over the mess and tell yourself you’ll clean it better later, DON’T! The longer a spill sits, the harder it becomes to properly clean. Properly cleaning spills prevents the odor and stain from bonding to your carpet fibers. You also want to make sure that you are blotting the area, and not rubbing it with a towel. Rubbing can actually push the mess deeper into the fibers, making the area harder to clean.
- Invest In Good Doormats
Placing a doormat at all your entrances will have a huge impact on extending the life of your carpet. Doormats provide an area for people to wipe their shoes and remove outside debris. This will greatly cut down on the amount of dirt that is tracked inside.
