Carpet Cleaning and the Rain: Just when we thought we were done with all this wet weather, a rainy April day comes along and stops us right in our tracks. Speaking of tracks, this rainy weather can lead to mud and dirt being tracked into your house by our kids, pets, and even sometimes ourselves – oops! But not to fear, we have some tips and tricks for carpet cleaning and the rain. We want to help get you through the end of the rainy season and put the spring back in your step!
No Shoes Rule
If you don’t already, start enforcing a no shoes rule inside your home. Leave a mat by the door and ensure the dirt from outside doesn’t make it into your carpet. If you have kids, you’ll have to lead by example. It only takes one quick traipse across the carpet with muddy shoes to leave stains on your carpet that can turn into permanent discoloration.
When it comes to carpet cleaning and the rain, mud is the enemy. If you do happen to get mud on your carpets the most important thing is to act quickly. Get some clean white rags and begin blotting the mud with a rag. Keep using different areas of the rag so as to not transfer the stain back onto the carpet. Once you’ve absorbed most of the dirt, you can wet a clean rag and start using that to blot the carpet. Wet the carpet lightly with the damp rag and then blot with a dry, continue this process until the stain is fully removed.
Deep Cleans Are Essential
Rainy weather means increased humidity and that can lead to a myriad of problems in the home. If your carpets get and stay damp, you run the risk of mold and mildew growth within the carpet. When it comes to carpet cleaning and the rain, sanitization is an important step of the process. We ensure sanitization of your carpet by using strong botanical based cleaners combined with 230 degree fahrenheit water ensuring your carpets are disinfected and ready to dry completely without the risk of mold and mildew.
