How to take care of your carpet
A high-quality carpet can last for years or even decades if you take good care of it. You won’t be able to maintain a beautiful carpet all on your own that’s why you’ll need the help of professionals like Reddeer Carpet Cleaner.
However, carpet maintenance doesn’t end with your regularly scheduled cleaning. You also have to do your share of cleaning responsibilities in between the cleaning schedule.
Here are some of the carpet maintenance tips you need to know to keep your carpet in pristine condition:
Invest in a good vacuum
Dirt and dust can easily accumulate on your carpet and sweeping won’t help you keep your carpet clean. A good vacuum can help remove dirt and debris from the carpet. You should at least vacuum it once a week to keep it clean and beautiful.
Keep in mind that you need a vacuum that can easily be customized to fit the needs of your carpet. Moreover, it should also have efficient airflow and large wheels so you can utilize it more on your carpet.
Spills are your enemy
One of the banes of having a carpet is fearing any accidents involving beverages. When a drink spills from your hand to the carpet, it’ll be a disaster because it’s going to stain. These accidents can’t be avoided and they’ll happen even if you’re careful.
Once a carpet stains, you’ll have to address it immediately. The longer it sits on the carpet, the harder it’ll be to remove. Scoop or blot the spilt area with paper towels to remove moisture from the carpet. If there are still stain residues on the carpet, add small amounts of water and blot it again with a paper towel.
It’s best to avoid using stain remover as much as possible because it can damage the carpet. Only use this product when the stain causes too much discoloration on the area.
Address furniture dents
Although this doesn’t really damage the carpet, it can still be noticeable especially when moving around the furniture in your home. You can address this by rubbing the dent with a coin so that the fibres would stand up again. The friction’s static energy can encourage the fibres to go back in their original form thus removing the dented area.
