Keeping your carpet clean can be a tall task between snack time, tracking-salt-from-the-winter-roads-indoors time, and glass-of-wine-once-the-kids-are-in-bed time. Here are some of our favorite ways to keep your carpet clean every day of the year.
Think of your home’s carpet like a big air filter that collects all of the various dirt, dust particles, and debris that floats around. All of those things can slowly wear down your carpet fibers as they are repeatedly ground down into the surface by feet and furniture. You don’t need to break out the vacuum and take care of your whole home every day. Instead, vacuum high traffic areas like entryways, living rooms, and any other areas with heavy use at least once a week. Getting dirt and dust up from the carpet frequently will ensure that heavy foot traffic won’t ruin your carpet.
Take Care of Stains Right Away
Stain rhymes with pain for a reason, and that’s because they are a huge pain to get out of carpeting once they set. While most modern carpeting is designed to be stain resistant, that doesn’t mean stain-proof. When you have a spill on your carpet, take action immediately to blot away the excess liquid and get out the stain. Use natural home remedies like soda water or a carpet cleaner designed for use with your carpet fibers.
Don’t Be Afraid to Go Pro
No, we don’t mean the camera, we mean hiring a professional to deep clean your carpet. If you really want to protect the investment that you made in your beautiful carpet flooring, have your carpet professionally cleaned one or two times a year. You will feel better about leaving the job to a professional and you will enjoy better results.
