Effective Ways to Keep your Carpet Clean
Carpets can get dirty very easily if they are not cleaned regularly. Vacuuming regularly can only get the noticeable dirt off, but what are some good tips to keep them clean all the time? Making a ‘no shoes’ rule can reduce outside contaminants from entering your home. Asking visitors, friends and family to leave their shoes by the front door is a great tip to keep your carpets cleaned, especially during cold winter months. If you have pets and they go to the bathroom on your carpets, treat them immediately, don’t let it sit for a long period of time. Treat any type of stain immediately, that includes food spills and coffee stains. The longer the stains are not treated, the more problematic it is to get out. Another tip on keeping your carpet clean is to protect your floors and carpeting by placing a doormat next to each entrance. During the winter, snow, salt, and slush can get tracked in your home and make a huge mess. Having two doormats (one outside and one inside) can keep your carpets from getting dirty (one outside to wipe your shoes on, one inside to take them off). If you have pets, wiping off their paws from a rainy or snowy day can prevent wet mud from the rain or slush from snow tracking all over your home. Washing your dog on occasion also is an easy way to keep your carpets cleaned. It prevents dirt tracking room to room where your dogs like to play and sleep. Getting your carpets professionally cleaned can remove all of the bacteria, dirt, allergens and dog stains leaving your carpet fresh and clean.
