Keeping Your Carpets Clean
Carpets absorb different amounts of dirt and grime, depending on their type, and therefore require being shampooed more often than others. Most professional commercial carpet cleaners and local carpet dealers recommend having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. One of the main factors which impact the frequency of carpet shampooing is the number of family members living in the home. Determining the frequency that the carpet needs to be shampooed also affects its cost.
The number of times
that a carpet is cleaned also determines its quality. Shampooed carpets tend to last longer, but they do not show off as much dust or allergens. Steam cleaning is said to be the best method for cleaning carpets, as it destroys all allergens and helps restore the air quality of the room.
Carpets can also be vacuumed at least three times each week.
Be sure to only vacuum the area directly below the rugs. Do not vacuum from above or towards the rugs as the suction may damage the carpets. Vacuuming all the time keeps the carpet clean and the suction improves its condition. Vacuuming can also improve the flooring’s condition by removing all dust and dirt that collects under it.
If you want your carpets cleaned regularly
then consider having them steamed cleaned first. Steam cleaning helps remove stains and allergens, as well as removing pet odors. Steam cleaning should be done on hot water and in a well-ventilated area. You should consider hiring a professional steam cleaner as the process might damage the carpets if it is not performed correctly.
There are other ways of getting your carpet needs cleaned.
You can use a wet/dry as for hard-to-reach areas such as the baseboards and stairs. A steam cleaner is recommended for heavily soiled areas as well as stains and spills that cannot be removed with a wet vacuum. Maintaining the carpet is a tedious job. It requires diligence, as it needs to be vacuumed and shampooed regularly. You should also have it professionally shampooed once every six months to a year depending on how often you have visitors in your home.
Carpets can add beauty
to your home and your everyday life. Carpets make homes look very attractive and give them a comfortable feel. However, they can become dirty very fast when they are left uncleaned. This can be avoided by following the above tips and having your carpet professionally cleaned regularly. Many people prefer to take their carpeting outside to have it cleaned by professionals. This helps them save time and money and allows them to enjoy their investment in their carpet.
