Best Ways To Keep Your Carpet Healthy & Clean

If your home has wall-to-wall carpeting, you are probably aware of the enormous financial hit it caused when it was placed. It makes sense to take care of and protect it, just like any significant purchase, to preserve its exquisite appearance and the cosy, warm atmosphere it creates in your home.

Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum!

The most crucial aspect of carpet cleaning is to vacuum as frequently as possible – once a day if possible, but at least once a week.

Vacuuming eliminates the grit that gets tracked in on the bottoms of shoes. It keeps it from settling in the fibres. If you’ve ever wondered why a carpet falls flat, it’s because foot traffic brings dirt and grit into the carpet, which destroys the fibres and causes them to be sliced or cut. Additionally, regular vacuuming helps remove pet hair, sand, small insects, and skin flakes that collect at the bottom of your carpet. You may not realise it, but your carpet is a filter, catching all the microscopic particles in the air.

Spills Should Be Cleaned Up Right Away

Accidents happen; when they do, they must be cleaned up quickly. Allowing the spots or stains to sit will cause them to become permanent and challenging, if not impossible, to remove. Attempt to remove stains or spills with clean, cold water. First and foremost, never rub the stain as this will spread it—Blot instead with a white paper towel or cloth. If your pet accidentally poops on your carpet, contacting our specialists at Dream Flooring is preferable. We have the chemicals and cleaning processes needed to eliminate the odour.

Schedule a Professional Carpet Cleaning

Many individuals underestimate the value of hiring a professional like Dream Flooring’s trained and competent cleaners to clean their carpets. Most carpet manufacturers advocate hot water extraction at least once a year. If you wait until your carpet is soiled, you have waited too long!

After Cleaning, Reapply Carpet Protector

Many carpets these days are pre-treated with a stain-resistant protective coating. The protective coating comes off over time due to chemicals used in cleaning or regular wear and tear. This will make your carpet more vulnerable to permanent stains. Inquire with your carpet cleaner about applying a protective layer for you. It may be expensive, but it is money well spent.
