With New Year round the corner, it is time to make resolutions. Unfortunately, most resolutions have a sad demise even before January comes to an end. If you have made New Year’s resolutions this year and one of them is carpet cleaning, here are some simple tips that will make this resolution into a reality.
1.Vacuum Clean Your Carpet Regularly
It is important to vacuum your carpet at least weekly to prevent dirt and soil from getting embedded deep into the fibers. Soil and dirt can cause your carpet to wear prematurely.
2.Wipe Up Spills At Once
If you spill something on your carpet, wipe it immediately. Use a kitchen towel to gently blot the spill. Then use a clean rag and water to gently blot the spill away. This will prevent it from turning into a permanent stain.
3.Check Your Carpet’s Warranty
If your carpet is resistant to staining, you will need to clean it regularly and remove spots and spills immediately for the warranty to stay valid.
4.Professional Carpet Cleaning is a Must
Regardless of what you feel and think, a professional carpet cleaning company can thoroughly clean your carpet and restore its look and feel. Get your carpet cleaned at least once every 12 months to maintain it and prevent premature wear.
5.Use a Carpet Protectant
Get the carpet cleaning company to cover the surface of the carpet with a carpet protectant after cleaning. This will prevent the fibers from getting damaged due to foot traffic and also protect it from dirt and stains.
6.Use Walk Off
Place walk off mats outside your front door to keep dirt off your carpet. This will prevent dirt and soil from getting onto your carpet.
