How to Properly Maintain Your Carpeted Floors

Carpets are a significant investment, so many people are concerned about keeping them clean and ensuring they last as long as possible. To properly maintain your carpet and knowing when to bring in a pro will ensure it lasts.

With kids, pets, and family gatherings, carpets often get put on the back burner when it comes to maintaining them.

Fortunately, there are a variety of methods you can use to maintain your carpets without causing you inconvenience. For the beginner, let’s start with the basics: the best way to keep your carpet looking fresh and clean is to vacuum it frequently, and not just a quick, two-minute vacuum, but take your time and be thorough. The trick is to slow down a bit when you vacuum higher traffic areas. Fast cleaning won’t remove enough dirt, and you’ll leave some things behind. It saves both time and money to not need a deep clean every few months.

It is crucial to perform a deep clean at least once a year, but maintaining between cleans is equally vital.

Another trick to keep your carpets clean longer is to take off your shoes whenever you enter your home. If you must wear shoes inside the house, consider wearing socks or slippers instead. House shoes dragged in from the outside can enrich your carpet with extra dirt that seeps into the carpet. It is not a good idea to let dirt get on your carpet. 

Manufacturers advise professional carpet cleaning every 12 to 24 months to maintain your carpet for a longer lifespan.

Keeping your carpet clean is crucial to preserving its beauty. Having an active lifestyle and family often means that our carpets are more likely to get dirty, and that’s okay. 

Regardless of your family’s lifestyle, there are small things you can do to prevent huge mishaps and keep your carpets looking good.
