Keeping Your Carpet Looking Great

Written by 

Carpet CleanerDirty floors unfortunately tend to grab someone’s attention, so keeping the floors—and especially, your carpets—looking great will boost your home’s overall appeal.

If you’re in need of a good carpet cleaning, check with local housekeeping services to see what they offer in addition to regular maintenance cleaning. If you just need to maintain between cleanings, here are a few carpet maintenance tips:

Vacuum Often

Carpets are magnets for dirt, dust, crumbs, lint, and even germs. To be sure your carpets are clean and healthy, vacuum once a week. If you have an area that sees frequent spills and crumbs, such as a carpeted dining room, vacuum those crumbs any time you see them to prevent them from getting ground further into the carpet.

Handling High-Traffic Areas

High-traffic areas are any places that are walked over frequently. Some high-traffic areas in your home include entryways, hallways, and the floor in front of furniture.

These areas need some extra care. Vacuum these spots two or three times a week, and vacuum in several directions. Overlap your strokes any time you vacuum, but especially in high traffic areas to get even dirt that has fallen deep into the carpet loose.

Dealing with Stains

Spills are unavoidable; there will always be that one cup that falls over unexpectedly. The key to keeping stains under control is to act as quickly as possible. Start with a clean cloth dabbing from the outside of the stain and moving in towards the middle. Once the stain has been mostly dried, use a clean, damp cloth to “rinse” the stain, then blot dry.

Carpet cleaning is part of any maid services, and they can handle the weekly maintenance for you. A little bit of care can make your carpet last for years.
