The carpet in your home is a big investment. Most homeowners will do anything to extend its life and avoid shelling out that amount of money again any time soon. There are several steps you can take to help your carpet last as long as possible. ADC Carpet Cleaning is here to share some tips that will help you extend the life of your carpet and keep it looking new longer.
Please Remove Shoes Before Walking on Carpet
This will sound like a “no-brainer,” but it is one of the best ways to keep your carpets in like new condition. Have guests and those that live in your home remove their shoes before walking on the carpet. Your shoes are covered with dirt and other debris will slowly work to break down the fibers of your carpet. By simply removing them before entering, you will find that your carpet will last longer and your home will appear to be cleaner as well. It’s a win, win situation.
Vacuum Your Flooring Often
The vacuum will help keep your carpet in good condition as well. Your vacuum works to remove all that fine dirt and dust that accumulates in the fibers of your carpet and causes them to break down prematurely. You should be vacuuming your carpet a couple times a week to keep it nice. When you are vacuuming, don’t be in a hurry and vacuum it in different directions for best results.
Remove Small Carpet Stains Right Away
You will inevitably have small spots and stains that accumulate on your carpet. The sooner you work to remove them, the better off your carpet will be. These stains will be more permanent the longer they sit on the fibers of your carpet. As soon as you notice a spill, you want to get to work removing it. When removing small stains, you should always blot rather than scrub to avoid unraveling the carpet fibers. You should also use a clean white cloth to spot clean your carpet as well to avoid any color transfer.
Rotate the Furniture on Carpet
When you rotate your furniture in the room it immediately changes the traffic patterns of the room. This will help your carpet to wear evenly and avoid heavy traffic patterns throughout the carpet. You should be rearranging your furniture about every 6 months for best results.
