Carpet Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Carpets are a big part of any home. They are a lot of work to keep clean since carpet is a surface that everyone loves to walk on! It can also be a real pain if there is a spill that you can’t clean yourself and therefore needs to be looked at by a professional like ADC Carpet Cleaning Specialists. One way to keep your carpets always looking their best is to use a professional carpet cleaner on a regular basis. Having your carpets cleaned every three months is a great way to have them looking their best. However, there is still the time in between that may need some attention.
ADC Carpet Cleaning Specialists have prepared the following tips and tricks that you can try until your next professional cleaning.
1. Make your own spot remover. If you have a spill that needs your attention and you are out of store bought cleaner, you can make your own by mixing ¼ teaspoon of liquid detergent with a cup of cold water. You can use this with a soft cloth to clean off a stain.
2. Stain Resistance doesn’t last forever. After you have your carpets professionally installed, then are often scotch guarded for your protection. You will notice that spills bead up on top of the carpet and are easy to absorb with a cloth. However as you, your family and your pets repeatedly walk on your carpets, slowly the stain resistance begins to break down. One way to be sure that your carpet stays more stain resistant is to add carpet protection to your professional cleaning service.
3. One way that dirt and dust could be distributed onto your carpet is from the furniture in your home. Just like carpets and clothes, furniture can collect dust and dirt and as you move around on them they can fall off onto the carpets. Fabric upholstery furniture like sofas, couches and chairs can be cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner, just like your carpets.
4. Vacuuming can help keep your carpets lasting longer. Your carpet can collect dirt, dust and other contaminants from the outside world. It can also collect hair and skin flakes that can begin to make your carpets looking uneven and dingy. Taking time to vacuum and keeping your carpets cleaned up in between professional cleaning will help make the carpets look great and last much longer.
5. Never over wet carpet. Did you know that if you try to soak too much cleaner or water on a stain it can get into the foam padding under the carpet. Once it soaks into the padding it can be hard to get out and it could lead to mold and mildew.
