Carpet Care Tips
Prolonging the life of your carpet is as simple as following a few important suggestions. Below are a couple of things you can do to keep your carpet healthy and looking great for many years.
One of the most essential things you can do to keep your carpet clean and looking great is to vacuum thoroughly. Vacuuming your carpet removes dry particulate soil that works itself deep into your carpet and is abrasive and damaging to the the fibers of your carpet. This wear and tear causes traffic patterns to develop and can result in carpet that looks dull and worn. Removing this soil through frequent vacuuming protects your carpet fibers from this abrasion and keeps your carpet from wearing down and keeps it looking new.
No-Residue Carpet Cleaning
While the removal of dry soil from your carpet is important, oily buildup and other spills need to be thoroughly flushed from your carpet on occasion through the use of deep truck-mounted steam cleaning that doesn’t leave a residue in your carpet. Avoid cheap carpet cleaners who may not provide a “no-residue carpet cleaning” About every 12 months you should have a professional with powerful equipment clean your carpet deep-down to remove this oily buildup and sticky residue from your carpet. After your carpet is thoroughly cleaned, having a carpet protector applied can help protect your carpet from future wear and tear by providing a protective layer to your carpet fibers that keep the fibers from being scratched by soil abrasion and foot traffic.
