Anyone can fall victim to stubborn stains and odors in their carpet during the summertime. Warm weather traps odors in and stuffy rooms become a breeding ground for dust mites. If you're looking to entertain guests this summer, or want to maintain your beautiful carpeting without having to recover from bigger carpet problems in the future, practice preventative care and treatment with a few tips from Omega Chem-Dry. Proper carpet care isn’t always easy, but the results are always worth the effort.
Here are three tips from the carpet cleaning experts at Omega Chem-Dry to maintain a clean carpet this summer:
- Stop dirt at the door. During summer months, high traffic in your home for backyard barbecues and family events can also mean trouble for your carpet. This is especially true for rugs and upholstery. The best way to avoid stains and odors from settling in is to vacuum and clean spots and spills right away.
- Maintain proper ventilation and circulation of air. High temperatures can also mean buildup of dust particles in your home. It is especially important to maintain proper ventilation. HVAC systems that are older may need to be tuned up, you may need an air conditioner, or windows can be kept open during the morning and afternoons when it is hotter outside.
- Get a professional cleaner. The best way to maintain a clean carpet is to start with a fresh slate! A professional deep chemical cleaning from Omega Chem-Dry will help to remove embedded dirt in carpets and eliminate grime on stone, tile, and grout.
If you follow these helpful tips, you will be able to stop dirt in its tracks, and maintain a fresh, clean home for a happy summer.
