Hints and Tips

Prolong the Life of Your Carpets
A carpet is an investment that adds beauty and comfort to your home. Here are some basic tips that can help you prolong the life of your carpets and keep them looking great.

Make sure everyone removes their shoes before walking on your carpet. If you do allow people to wear shoes when walking on your carpet, make sure the bottoms of shoes are checked for dirt and grime before entering the house.

Vacuum your carpets regularly to remove dust and dirt. Make sure you do not allow your vacuum bags to become too full and always keep them changed regularly to ensure maximum efficiency.

Remove spills and spots from your carpets as soon as they occur. For many types of spills, a simple solution of white vinegar and water, or a little club soda, can easily and economically do the job. Simply dampen the stained area with the cleaner and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Then, gently blot the area until almost dry. If any stain remains, simply repeat.

After the carpet is dry, vacuum the area. For stubborn stains, you can purchase a commercial spot cleaner such to eradicate spots quickly and easily. You can also find home steam cleaners that can be used to remove basic everyday stains and spots.

No matter how vigilant you are in taking care of your carpets, you will need to have them deep cleaned about once a year.

When deep cleaning your carpets, always remove all furniture from the area. You don't want your pieces to become damaged from moisture or accidentally scratched while using the cleaning equipment. Never saturate your carpet when steaming or shampooing, as too much water can cause mold and mildew to form on your carpet and its under padding.

You can choose a company to come in and perform the deep cleaning for you. How much this will cost will depend on the size of the carpet being cleaned and the company doing the job. Or you can opt to deep clean your carpets yourself. To achieve this, you will need a professional grade carpet shampooer or steam cleaner which can be rented from your local hire centre or purchased.

Whilst it's cheaper to deep clean the carpets yourself, it is hard work and time consuming. You also have to taken into account that you have to hire the carpet cleaner (or buy one) anyway and it is unlikely that you will be able to do as thorough a job on your own as a professional company would since they have the man power and better equipment.

No matter how you choose to clean your carpets, a little regular care goes a long way in prolonging the beauty and life of your carpets.
