Proper carpet cleaning will not only keep it clean, but will keep it looking new. Regular carpet cleaning can reduce stains, odors, germs and allergens found in your carpet.
Carpet cleaning is a necessity because our feet and shoes both carry oil, dirt and other substances that can leave stains on our carpet.
Vacuuming is the most common form of carpet cleaning. Vacuuming your carpet regularly can remove any loose dirt or other dry debris resting in the carpet fibers. Carpets should be vacuumed at least once a week. If your carpet is used to heavy traffic (family, friends, kids, pets etc.), it should be vacuumed more than once per week. Vacuuming your carpet regularly will prolong its life cycle.
Regular carpet cleaning will prolong the life of your carpet because it prevents the buildup of small dirt and grit particles. A buildup of dirt on your carpet can lead to carpet stains. In addition, a buildup of dirt on your carpet can create allergens and germs that can seep into the aim or on your body or clothing (feet, shoes, socks etc.).
Gritty particles deposited by your shoes onto your carpet can tear your carpet fibers. Carpets that are repeatedly exposed to gritty particles can get worn and appear faded. If your carpet is exposed to heavy traffic, gritty particles can leave certain parts of your carpet faded, while others will look newer.
When you are vacuuming your carpet, it is very important to pick all dirt and debris up. Most vacuums have a tool that will let you vacuum up any dirt and debris stuck in the different crevices around your home (stairs, corners etc.). Use your crevice tool on your vacuum to clean dirt and debris around any hard-to-reach places.
When you are carpet cleaning , divide your carpet into quadrants. Vacuum one quadrant at a time, making sure to pick up any loose debris deposited on your carpet. Make sure to use your crevice to get around any hard-to-reach places like corners and baseboards.
Separating your carpet in to quadrants and vacuuming will do best for rooms in your home with wall-to-wall carpeting. Make sure that when you are vacuuming wall-to-wall carpeting, you vacuum the entire quadrant, and then move on to the next. This will ensure that you pay attention to each section of your carpet.
Make sure that you take your time when you are carpet cleaning. When vacuuming your carpet, make more than one pass over each section.
You want to make sure that you get any dirt and debris that may be embedded within the carpet fibers.
