How to Clean Carpet – the right way!
Purchasing flooring is an investment. We believe that your flooring should keep up with the way you live your life. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of tips on how to clean carpet which is essential to prolonging the life of your carpet.
One of the most important steps in how to clean carpet s simply to vacuum regularly. When vacuuming wall-to-wall carpet you should divide the floor into sections and focus on one area at a time. If you have plush carpet, you will need to devote more time to each section. Make two to three passes with the cleaner moving slowly in order to remove deep dirt.
Areas that experience high foot traffic need to be vacuumed more frequently. Move your cleaner in a crisscross pattern across these areas. Every carpet owner should have a crevice tool. Use this tool, and a little elbow grease, monthly to remove dirty buildup around baseboards and doorways. Have pet odors? No worries. Adding a little baking soda to your vacuum cleaner’s bag can help remove those pesky odors.
Spills and spots happen. The best way to prevent those spills and spots from turning into stains is to clean them immediately. Do not rub the carpet. Blot up as much of the spills as you can before using any spot cleaners. Any spot cleaners that you plan to use should be tested on a small swatch of carpet to make certain that the cleaner will not discolor your flooring. After cleaning, use a bath towel to pat the area dry.
