Carpet Care Tips
Any effort to clean your carpets on your own starts with gathering knowledge – knowledge of the exact material, and knowledge of the correct cleaning methods. Some carpets can endure violent scrubbing and return with a smile, while others are delicate enough to falter under mild exposure to commercial cleaners.
Basic Carpet Care Tips
There's no need to clean a carpet too often and doing so might cause damage. When we say clean, we're referring to an extensive procedure meant to purify the entire carpet. Some people never clean their carpets this way, which is not pleasant to think about.
How often you'll perform a complete cleaning job depends on the amount of traffic and the presence of pets. Since most pets like to run around outside, they have a habit of accumulating dirt on their paws – dirt which they then spread all over your carpet, including those inner layers that are invisible to the eye.
Those of us who only walk over their carpets without shoes, don't eat on them and don't spill anything can get away with cleaning them once every year to year-and-half. Remember that this doesn't refer to vacuuming – you should vacuum as often as possible, and it might not be a bad idea to vacuum several times per week if the carpet attracts a lot of filth.
How you'll clean your carpet depends on the equipment you have access to, the size of the carpet and your preferences. Some like to utilize a commercial steam cleaner, while others prefer soaking the carpet in water.
