3 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Carpet
Now, with a title like 3 ways to extend the life of your carpet, I have little doubt that readers will be stumbling over themselves to click the button to read this article. Afterall who couldn’t stand to extend the life of anything in their home, or really just about anything at all? Alright, so I know carpet cleaning may not be the most electric of topics, but it is still worthy of our attention. So, let’s give it some attention by giving attention to your carpets. I hope that makes sense!
The first tip we are going to look at is age-old, and honestly one of my favourites!
1. Vacuum your carpet!
A lot may be said about whether or not you like or love to vacuum your carpets. The fact of the matter is that I kind of like it. I understand that I may not be in the majority of people there, but so be it. We all have our peculiar likes and dislikes. But here’s why everyone should vacuum (REGULARLY):
Vacuuming your carpet cleans up dust, tiny dirt particles, vegetable fibres, etc. First of all these nasty particles can cause allergic reactions and can actually reduce the quality of your (and your family’s) wellbeing! That’s just true. Secondly, if you wait too long, those particles will sift their way down through your carpet to the base, where they will get stuck. If you ask me, that basically means that they will permanently damage your carpet. So, just vacuum it at least once a week!
2. Spot cleaning
I doubt that there is anyone, but those unconcerned with ever having guests, who don’t care about stains on their carpets. They look terrible, and make you look like you won’t be able to afford dinner tomorrow night! The rule here is really quite simple: try to take care of stains and tough spots ASAP. Don’t save that for tomorrow. Remember to blot before your rub or scrub and consider getting a good carpet cleaning product to help with the spill.
3. Get a professional to come in sometimes.
I don’t know about you but I am big on professionals! There are some people in this world who are experts at certain things. I say let them do their job! So, it’s a good idea to hire a professional to come and clean your carpet every so often. I would say once a year, but the final call is up to you. This will ensure that your carpet lasts longer and looks a little nicer for your guests.
