Preventative Carpet Maintenance
Carpets, despite being somewhat vulnerable to spills and stains, are pretty easy to maintain. By establishing a routine for maintaining your carpet floors, you can help to guarantee that it looks great as the years pass. With upkeep like this, remaining vigilant in relation to cleaning your flooring is essential in keeping it looking its best.
For carpet flooring, vacuuming is the name of the game when it comes to daily upkeep. Investing in a quality vacuum and putting it to use can help to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that are present in the fibers. Debris like this can cause damage to the fibers over time. How often you vacuum your carpet floors will depend on the amount of foot traffic the rooms receive.
You should also always encourage guests to remove their shoes before walking on your carpet and consider placing entry mats near the doors of your home. Limiting the amount of dirt from entering your home is always a best practice.
Dealing With Carpet Spills & Stains
It's no secret that carpet floors are vulnerable to spills and stains. But by addressing messes immediately, you can help to guarantee that no lingering damage will occur.
For liquid spills, start by absorbing the substance with a towel and then blotting repeatedly with another towel submerged in cold water. If this doesn't work, then you can remove the stain by using a recommended cleaning item for your carpet, but be sure and only use manufacturer-approved cleaning solutions. Be sure to pretest any new substance before trying them on your carpet floors. For solid messes, use your vacuum cleaner.
