Top Tips to Maintain Carpet Cleanliness

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

The carpets in your house are one of the huge initial investments as a new homeowner. Due to the hefty price tag attached to purchasing a carpet, you would wish to steer clear from replacing the carpet too frequently. The key to this would be maintaining a good level of carpet cleanliness on a frequent basis. The cleanliness levels of your carpet depend on the rules that you set out in your household and with a few simple tweaks in your behavior, maintaining carpet cleanliness will be easier than ever! Read on to find out our top tips that will prevent your carpets from getting too much dirt on them.

No Shoes indoors

Shoes not only bring in dirt but also germs, toxins, and other bacteria. You can make it a rule for both your family members and your guests to remove their shoes at the door. This prevents the dirt on their shoes from getting transferred onto carpets. For individuals who are less comfortable with this idea, you can also designate house shoes and slippers for them. 

Getting Good Doormats

However, if implementing the no shoes rule is something you struggle with, another alternative would be to get good doormats for your home. Doormats help to cut down on a lot of the dirt that can be brought back into your home. It’s essential that you clean out your doormats too, though! A dirty doormat won’t be able to get the dirt off well from your shoes and might end up serving no real purpose.

Cleaning Stains Immediately

Have you ever accidentally spilled a glass of apple juice onto your carpet, only to dab it with tissues and never think about the stain again? That is the total opposite of what you should be doing! Spills and stains are one of the fastest ways to age your carpets and cause severe damage to them. For most types of stains, simply using tissues on them is insufficient. Often, you should be employing other cleaning agents to really get the stain out.

Getting A Good Vacuum

You may be vacuuming your home on a regular basis but the type of vacuum that you are using can play a big role in determining how clean your carpets get. A good vacuum can really help to suck up all the small particles that sweeping using a broom is unable to do so. Certain vacuums are also specially built for cleaning carpets and different vacuums are built with different filtration capabilities, which affects their performance.

Getting Professional Cleaning

The professionals know best. Professional carpet cleaning entails a good, deep cleaning of your carpets. Although you may be cleaning your own carpets on a regular basis, professional cleaning is often more thorough and can aid in removing the dirt that you may have previously missed.
