Protecting your carpet is becoming more of a necessity every day. Carpet is a significant investment, so ensuring it lasts as long as possible is a worthwhile endeavor. If you want your carpet to have a lengthy life, cleaning and caring for it is essential. Here are simple steps from your trusted Dazzle CC team you can take to keep your carpet clean and looking pristine throughout its lifetime.
Use Mats or Carpet Covers. Your home sees a lot of foot traffic over its time and unfortunately, heavy foot traffic can wear down the carpet in your office even faster than the carpet in your home. Any dirt that you bring in can sink into the carpet and grind down the fibres, giving the carpet a more worn-out and less vibrant look. Shoes don’t just bring in dirt; they also track in bacteria and toxins. Using mats and carpet covers in entry ways and hallways can go a long way in protecting your carpet. They trap bacteria and allergens and not spread them further into the rest of your home.
Vacuum regularly. Vacuuming is a simple but important step in protecting your carpet and keeping your home clean. That’s because carpet serves as a trap for whatever is circulating in the air – it may contain contaminates such as dirt, dust mites, pollen grains, dead skin cells, and pet hair. In order to minimize the amount of these contaminants and the damage they may do to the carpet, vacuum light-traffic areas once a week and medium-traffic areas at least twice a week. Vacuum high-traffic areas and areas pets use daily or as often as required.
Be cautious with cheap carpet cleaners. While saving money is a good goal, sometimes short-term saving techniques can cause you to spend more money in the future. Cheap carpet cleaners won’t remove as much gunk as professional cleaners. They can expand on stains and spills and penetrate bacteria and dirt deeper into your carpet fibres. It can also leave your carpets wet for a longer time period, which increases the chance that mold will begin to grow in your carpet. Make the investment to professionally clean your carpets with your local Dazzle CC team.
Have your carpet professionally cleaned. Vacuuming your carpet doesn’t remove everything. Dirt, pollens, germs and other things you don’t want in your home will stubbornly take root in your carpet. To keep your carpets much cleaner and healthier, improving the health of your home, contact us today!
