One way to keep your home a healthy living space for your family is by keeping your carpet clean and fresh. Effective carpet cleaning can improve not only the appearance of your home, but most importantly, the health of those living in it. Read on for some hints and tips that will help you keep your carpets hygienic and looking good for longer.
Soiling leads to premature wear of the fibre on your carpet. Vacuuming weekly, twice weekly in high-traffic areas, will really help remove abrasive soil
Placing rugs or mats at your front door will help filter the dirt from shoes that would otherwise contribute to the soiling of your home. Rugs and runners in high-traffic areas are also a great way to protect your carpet from wearing and staining, especially in they are placed in areas where people are eating!
Got pets? Similar to a front door mat for us, keeping dog towels near your door to wipe your pets’ paws before they come inside will go a long way to improving the overall health and hygiene of your carpets. Convenience is key – if they’re nearby, you’ll use them.
Staining on carpets immediately ruins their aesthetic appeal. The longer you let a stain sit, the more difficult they are to remove. When attempting to remove stains, make sure that you do not rub it. This can cause the stain to go deeper into the carpet fibres… A simple dabbing motion is best.
There are some trickier stains that require professional assistance to remove – wine, pet mess, etc. – However, removing any excess moisture with a clean cloth is still really important.
Another pro tip, carefully take out the stain with a cloth by working from the fringes towards the centre.
There are some carpet warranties that require some variety of professional cleaning to keep them valid. A deep clean, performed by a professional technician, will remove dirt and soil that your vacuum simply cannot. They will also be able to eliminate tough stains and allergens, improving indoor air quality and protecting your carpet from further deterioration.
Your carpet is an investment. Protect your investment by making sure that it is clean and fresh. This will prolong the life of your carpets and make the home healthier for your family to live in.
