Benefits of Vacuuming Carpet Daily
Though we understand that busy lifestyle cannot always make it so, it is advisable that the carpets get vacuumed daily. If this is unreachable, be sure to do it as frequently as possible and at the bear minimum, once a week. Vacuum often the carpets that do not look dirty and see little foot traffic. Whether it is dragged on the bottom of shoes, feet, and paws, or settles on the surface from indoor air, the dust and debris simply settle on the surface. A natural abrasive are the particulates of dirt and debris. Traction is caused from simple foot traffic. When these to elements are combined, you create a sandpaper-like affect that expedites the deterioration of your carpet. Not only causing damage, but the dirt building up makes carpet look dingy, dull, old, and will matte the fibers. Routinely vacuuming prevent the majority of dirt and debris from seeping past the surface and reduces the damage while maintaining their vibrancy longer.
Avoid Direct Sunlight that Causes Fading on Carpet
Ideally, preventing over exposure from the sun’s rays to your carpets should be incorporated into your carpet care. The color fades and the carpets dry out with long term UV exposure. If possible, re-arrange the furniture every 6 months or take advantage of window treatments such UV film, curtains, drapes, and/or blinds. Additionally, new walkway paths to even out the wear on the carpets can be beneficial if you re-arrange the furniture.
