If you want to keep your carpets and area rugs looking new and fresh, you must make an effort to maintain them on a regular basis. Here are five suggestions to help you keep your carpets and rugs looking great.
Tip #1 - Vacuum regularly:
Using a vacuum cleaner on a regular basis is the most effective approach to remove dirt and debris from your carpets. Vacuum at least once a week, and more often if you have a lot of foot traffic or pets.
Tip #2 - Use doormats and implement a no-shoes policy:
Doormats are a good way to catch dirt and moisture before it gets tracked onto your carpets. Install entrance mats to encourage visitors to wipe their feet before entering your home. Shoes can bring a lot of filth, grime, and even external contaminants into your house. Consider instituting a no-shoes policy to reduce the amount of dirt tracked onto your carpets. Provide a shoe storage area for your family and guests when they enter your home.
Tip #3 - Clean up spills immediately:
To avoid stains, clean up spills on your carpet as quickly as possible. Clean the spill with a clean, white cloth, then apply the recommended amount of carpet cleaning solution according to the manufacturer's recommendations.
Tip #4 - Protect your carpets from furniture:
Furniture can damage carpets, especially if it is heavy or has sharp edges. To protect your carpets from scratches and dents, place felt pads beneath the legs of your furniture. Over time, heavy furniture can cause indents in your carpets. To minimize lasting indentations in your carpets and prevent uneven wear and tear, rearrange your furniture or rotate heavy pieces on a regular basis.
Tip #5 – Schedule professional cleanings:
While regular vacuuming and spot cleaning are crucial, professional carpet cleanings should be scheduled at least once or twice a year.
