The carpet in your home plays a significant part in daily life, and was surely a significant investment. As such you no doubt want to keep them in the best condition as possible and want them to last as long as possible. Not only so that your home stays looking clean, nice and inviting, but also because properly maintained carpets can improve the air quality in your home. They trap dust and air pollutants keeping them from entering your respiratory system. So what is required to maintain clean long lasting carpets? Not too much thankfully, here are a few main points to keep in mind.
- Avoid rubbing stains immediately. This can cause it to smear and become irreversible. The rubbing action can also deteriorate the fiber causing your own carpet to wear out quicker.
- Take the time to vacuum often enough and thoroughly, meaning going over the carpet from several directions this allows the vacuum to suck up all the debris and soil it can.
- Manufacturers also recommend a professional cleaning every six months to a year (depending on if you live with pets and or children) to keep your carpets in the best condition possible. So be sure to give us a call!
