The ABCs Of Carpet Maintenance


If you’re looking to declutter your mind and your space, you may want to start thinking about hiring a service that will clean your home.

Carpet is real struggle to take care of, especially if you have pets. If not cleaned properly, fibers start to mat, color fades, and an unpleasant odor emulates and moves through your entire home. A dirty carpet is very noticeable. You don’t want guests greeted with a foul smell, rough, itchy fibers beneath their feet, and obvious stains littering the floor. As a homeowner, maintaining your investment yields higher profits in the long run. You don’t want to get stuck needing to replace your entire carpet! Learning how to properly clean carpeting keeps guests returning, the value of your home secure, and your living space clutter free! Educating yourself is the first step to making necessary changes a reality.

What Materials Are You Working With

To clean carpets effectively, you’ll need to know the material it’s is made from. Some materials, such as leather or suede, don’t react well to a simple soap and water solution. This information can usually be found on the instructions tag if you’re cleaning an area rug. If fluffy flooring is throughout the entire home, you may need to do some research. Most carpeting is synthetic fibers made from polyester, polypropylene, or nylon. They require frequent vacuuming and stain removal. Do not assume your carpet can handle this. It’s always best to know the material you’re cleaning so isn’t ruined.

Preventing Foot Traffic

Using doormats is a great way to prevent foot traffic from trapping dirt in the fibers. Too much dirt accumulation will cause tangling and eventually,  affect may be irreversible if neglected for too long. Investing in a textured surface to put in front of each doorway will keep that filth outside!

Vacuuming And Grooming

Vacuuming daily is important. Getting rid of embedded dirt, sand, pet dander and debris keeps those fibers detangled and soft. Being able to glide your feet smoothly over your carpets, feeling their cushy coziness will leave you satisfied from a job well done. You need to make sure you’re cleaning up spills immediately. We understand that accidents happen! You’re getting a little too friendly with your favorite bottle of wine and regrettably spill an entire glass on your prized hand-woven, Turkish rug. Not only will a quick clean reduce the rate of absorption, but it also helps eliminate bacteria. Don’t let food and drink rot beneath the surface of your feet! Take care of it as soon as possible.
