3 Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Carpets Clean, Barnesville, Ohio

Installing carpet can make homes cozier and office spaces more inviting. With daily wear, the surfaces are bound to get dingy and matted. Investing as much care into carpeting as any other flooring material will extend its lifespan while removing harmful pollutants that could make you sick. Below is some maintenance advice to help carpeting retain its fresh appearance and feel. 

3 Effective Cleaning Tips for Carpets

1. Blot Stains, Don’t Rub

carpetFrom beverage spills to pet accidents, there are numerous ways a brand-new carpet can quickly become filled with stains. Although addressing issues immediately reduces the chances of blotches becoming permanent, more often than not, faint carpet discoloration is left behind. The trick to retaining carpet color, while removing stains entirely, is to dab the area. Rubbing only embeds liquid and dirt deeper into carpet fibers, breaking them down over time. To remove stains, pour a cleaning solution on the area and dab with a paper towel or sponge.

2. Use Clean Vacuum Bags or Filters

If the vacuum cleaner bag is filled with dust and dirt, equipment can’t circulate air as well as it should. When you use the vacuum, it won’t be able to generate enough power to suction grime off the floors. With bag-free models, the same thing happens when filters are dirty. So the vacuum is as powerful as possible, remember to use clean bags or filters. 

3. Invest in Professional Carpet Cleaning

Although regular vacuuming will pick up dirt particles on the carpet surface, many consumer products can’t access hard-to-reach oil, grease, and additional debris lurking deep down in the fibers. Professional carpet cleaners use commercial-grade steam cleaners and additional products that do a much better job. To prevent grime buildup and extend the lifespan of the carpet, invest in professional cleaning every six months.
