Did you just have your carpets cleaned by a professional carpet cleaning service? If so, your carpet just had a good deep cleaning and you enjoyed a fresh clean carpet with a pleasant scent. With freshly cleaned carpet you may be wondering what you can do to help keep your carpet clean. There are a number of steps you can take to help prolong your recent professional cleaning. Heart of Texas Chem-Dry will share what you can do to help prolong your recent carpet cleaning.
Don’t Wear Shoes on Your House Carpet
Shoes should not be worn just after the carpet has been cleaned. One of the first steps the household can take to keep the carpets clean is to not wear shoes in the home or on the carpets. Shoes bring in dirt that causes soiling stains on the carpets. To help prolong professional carpet cleaning, make sure to enforce a “no shoes rule” on the carpets. To help encourage no shoes inside the home, place a shoe rack or shelf at the primary entrance to help remind household members to take off their shoes.
Keep Dogs & Cats Clean
For those with pets such as dogs and cats, work to keep your pets clean. Bathe dogs every six months and cats once a year to keep them clean and dirt free. Also brush your pets once a week to help keep loose hair and dirt off of the carpet. Especially the dogs and cats that can freely go outside will bring in more dirt into the home. Keeping your pets clean will help keep your carpets clean as well.
Vacuum the Carpet Daily or Weekly?
Another essential step to prolong a carpet cleaning is vacuuming the carpets weekly or more often if needed. Households with a larger family and pets it doesn’t hurt to vacuum the carpet every other day to help clean the carpet clean and free of dirt. When vacuuming carpet make sure to use good carpet cleaning techniques. When vacuuming the carpet, go in multiple directions. With this method you will remove more dirt out of the carpet.
Clean Stains from Carpet Right Away
Stains and spills always seem to occur on freshly cleaned carpets. The best way to keep carpets clean is to clean spills or stains as soon as they occur. Once stains have time to seep into the carpet they become harder to clean and will of course, ruin your clean carpets. When you want to keep the carpet clean, use a dry cloth and blot at the stain to absorb the moisture up and out of the carpets and into the cloth. Then you can use water with a little bit of liquid dish soap and blot the stain until it is clean. It is also recommended to keep carpet stain removers and cleaners on hand.
