Red Deer Carpet Cleaners: How to take care of your carpets
Let’s say you just got your brand new carpeting installed. What’s next? Are you ready to keep it in good condition? To help you maximize your investment, here are some tips to help you take care of your carpets.
- Don’t drag furniture
One of the most avoidable mistakes that people continue to make is dragging furniture instead of carrying them. We all get lazy sometimes where we just want to get a task done. However, this is something that you should exert your effort in.
While dragging furniture is easier and faster, it tends to leave marks or worse, damage your carpet. What you should do instead is carefully lift them and gently put them down in your desired spot. It would also help if you have someone to help you.
- Vacuum regularly
This should go without saying but, you should vacuum your carpets once a week at the very least. Dirt and other particles tend to get stuck on your carpets when it is left there for an extended period.
Also, make sure that you choose the right vacuum and that you know the right setting to use for your carpets. You can always ask your carpet manufacturer about the dos and don’ts of their products.
- Hire a professional carpet cleaner

You won’t have to worry about damage because we are equipped state of the art tools that will leave your carpet in tip-top shape.
- Clean up liquids immediately
Whether it be juice, wine, or dog pee, be sure that you tend to it immediately. These liquids can easily make their way to every fibre of the carpet. The longer you leave it unattended, the harder it will be to clean off.
- Place a water-absorbent mat
Place the mat on the inside of your doorway so that before your guests come in, they can wipe off moisture and dirt from their footwear.
- Cut off snags
Your first instinct when you see a snag might be to pull it. But refrain from doing this because this can just further spread the damage. Instead, cut off the snag using sharp shears.
- Undo furniture dents
Furniture will naturally form dents on carpets because of its weight. What you can do to remove this is to use a bit of science. Rub the edge of a quarter on the dent and watch as it rises back up due to static electricity.
Those are some of the things that you need to keep in mind to help you with your carpet problems. Carpets are an investment and it instantly beautifies your home. Make sure to preserve them as much as you can.
