Having your carpet professionally cleaned is a worthwhile investment. However after you have had your carpets deep and professionally cleaned, it is only natural to want to maintain your carpet’s clean state for as long as possible. For those with a large family, many household members, pets, or children, you might realize how difficult it may be to keep your carpets clean. Ameribest Carpet Cleaning would like to help you with this challenging task and share a few tips on how to can maintain clean carpets until your next deep cleaning.
High traffic areas are the dirtiest areas on our carpet and the areas that get dirty the fastest. To help keep high traffic areas cleaner longer, consider using area rugs. You can use runner rugs, area rugs, or even an entry rug or mat to help prevent bringing dirt onto your newly cleaned carpet. Keep in mind, when using rugs on carpet, they can shift or move around easily. Either get rugs with a back padding or use a separate padding that helps prevent slipping.
Another way to keep carpets cleaner, longer is keeping shoes off the carpet. If one rule should be instilled in every carpeted household, it should be not wearing shoes on the carpet. Shoes are one of the dirtiest objects in every home as they touch everything. Shoes easily leave dirt and bacteria in your carpets. To help maintain clean carpets never allow shoes on them.
Many people love using their carpeted living room as a dinning hall. Eating or drinking on carpet is asking for stains. Another valuable rule for every household is that no one brings foods or drinks around the carpets. Some of the most stubborn stains are from food and liquids.
If you have pets or children, sometimes preventing stains is out of your control. In these situations you will want to clean a stain as it occurs. Regardless as to the type of stain, to maintain clean carpet remember that stains are best removed as soon as they occur. Liquid stains should be pressed gently down with a dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as possible followed up with a spot stain remover so as not to spread it.
