There’s often a debate about if a carpet or hardwood floor is the better flooring option. Some homeowners put area rugs over their hardwood floors to get the best of both worlds. Either way, regardless of the types of flooring you have, it takes maintenance to keep them looking their best. If you have carpet floors in your home, you’ll appreciate these cleaning tips. Here are four mistakes that we suggest you avoid when cleaning your carpet.
Scrubbing Your Carpet With a Lot of Pressure
When you scrub a carpet vigorously, you can damage its fibers by twisting them and causing them to fray. The scrubbing method is ineffective because what you’re doing is pushing the stain deeper into the floor. The blotting technique works more often than not.
Allowing a Stain to Sit There
Removing a stain involves quick action. You never want the stain to settle because it will be harder to clean. What’s worse is that not cleaning a stain fast can cause the liquid to move inside the surface of the carpet, and thus, cause mold growth.
Using the Incorrect Cleaning Product
Using the wrong product can lead to permanent damage and discoloration. Before buying and using a cleaning solution on any of your floors, always do your research. You also want to follow the guidelines or instructions on the cleaning product to avoiding making a mistake and ruining your floor.
Oversaturating Your Carpet
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was an architect who coined the term “less is more” This time-honored and valuable phrase applies to so many situations, including cleaning your home. Using more of a product doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get a better clean. Using too many harsh chemicals, or chemicals, in general, can cause damage as well as create a buildup of residue that attracts dirt.
