Motivating people to keep their carpets well-preserved, people investing in high-quality carpets need to take some maintenance steps that extend beyond the basics. Not only will well cared for carpets look beautiful for a long time but keeping the carpets well-maintained impacts the rest of the house’s integrity, such as the indoor air quality for example. Going being occasional vacuuming, carpet care involves more to keep them healthy, in good condition, and ensuring they last. Considering this, we at Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists would like to expound on carpet care maintenance and its importance.
Vacuuming Daily or Often
Carpets need to be vacuumed as frequently as possible, daily is optimal, but we know that not everybody can afford the time so be sure you vacuum at least once a week. Carpets that see little foot traffic, and don’t seem dirty should still be vacuumed at least once a week as well. At the least, dirt and dust will settle on the carpets surface, but it will likely be dragged in on the bottom of shoes and paws. The dirt particulates are a natural abrasive. Add traction from the effects of walking and a sandpaper like effect is produced, which accelerates the deterioration of the carpets. Not only causing damage, but the dirt left to accumulate makes the carpets look dingy, full and will even matte the fibers. Regularly vacuuming removes the majority of the dirt, preserving the health, beauty, and longevity of your carpets. For an added bonus, avoid wearing shoes on the carpets to reduce the wear.
Avoid Sun Damage to Carpet
Long term exposure of direct sunlight takes a toll on carpets. The UV rays will result in color fading and dries out the carpets. To prevent the direct sun light’s exposure, be sure to keep blinds, curtains, and drapes closed during peak hours. Invest in UV film can help you protect the carpets if you like to saturate your home with natural sunlight. Re-arranging the furniture every 6 months or so can help even out wear caused from some light and foot traffic as well.
Professional Deep Steam Carpet Cleaning
Industry professionals agree, that carpets need to be deep cleaned every 6-12 months. The better you care for your carpets the longer you can go in between, even the carpets seem clean, be sure do schedule a deep cleaning with a professional at least once a year. With some warranties, they are only valid with documented proof of professional cleaning. The dry soil that escaped vacuuming settles below the surface and will continue to buildup. Professional deep cleaning extracts the dirt before it gets out of hand as well as neutralize any developing odors and eliminates the spots and stains.
