Simple and easy is the way to take care of your carpets. Certain proven methods can help maintain your carpet’s appearance and life expectancy. There are several ways to maintain the appearance and lifespan of your carpet.
Do not carpet areas with high traffic
Consider the foot traffic in each area of your house when choosing which flooring to use. The front entryways are the most common. Avoid covering these areas with carpet. The carpet is best for bedrooms, living rooms and dens as they are warm and cozy. But it’s not the right choice for entryways to front doors as dirt and mud can be found there.
Removing your Shoes and wiping Your Feet
To minimize dirt and mud from coming into contact with your carpets, you can ask family members and visitors to remove their shoes before entering. By placing a mat indoors and out, you can reduce dirt that is on your guests’ feet. As well as placing doormats in every entrance, you should also get into the habit to remove your shoes before entering your house. You will be reducing dirt and dust that gets tracked inside and onto the carpet. Keep a shoe shelf and a collection of colorful flip-flops, slippers or other footwear near the entrance to your home to help remind people to take off their shoes.
The Stains that Appear and How to Remove them
It doesn’t matter how much you protect your rug, it will still get soiled and stained. The removal of carpet stains is not an urgent task, but the quicker you remove the stain, it will aid in carpet restoration. To begin with, blot up the liquid spill. Rubbing a stain removes the fabric, and sets the stain. Continue to blot the affected area until almost completely dry, and then vacuum it. The water left on carpets from incorrect blotting may lead to the formation of carpet mould.
Regularly cleaning your carpet will save you money. Be sure to test any stain or spot removers before you apply them to areas that are highly visible.
Using baking soda before vacuuming
Not only should the carpet be cleaned, it also needs to smell great. It is easy to keep carpets smelling good by spritzing baking soda over them before vacuuming. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on your carpet. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes before vacuuming as usual.
Carpets need to be regularly vacuumed
Although you may be diligent in asking guests and members of your family to remove shoes before entering and to wipe their soles, the dirt will still find its way into your room.
Carpet vacuuming regularly will help to prolong the life of your rug and make it look great throughout the year. Vacuuming removes dirt and crumbs from your carpet, helps minimize the effects of foot traffic on it, and removes allergens. It also reduces its dullness. Vacuuming your carpet more frequently will make it look better. Set your calendar so that you vacuum areas with heavy foot traffic 2-3 times a weeks, and other sections less frequently used once a month.
Regularly replace filters and bags
No matter if your vacuum is an upright model or a canister one, or filtered, or a bagless version, it needs to be in top working order. Your carpets will stay cleaner longer if you do this. Regularly change the filter or bag. Your vacuum may lose its suction power and not pick up the dirt on your carpet.
Deep Clean twice a Year
There is nothing better than a thorough carpet deep clean to protect your carpets, and keep them looking as good as new. Do not wait until the carpet is dirty to do a deep cleaning. Instead, schedule it twice annually in your planner. Hire a carpet-cleaner for the weekend to save time, or hire professionals for the best results.
