White carpet looks certainly clean and fresh when first installed but it can easily attract unsightly dirt and stains over time, making it less than presentable. However, the good news is white or light colored carpets can actually show less dirt than darker shades as specks of dust are naturally more visible to dark colored carpets. There is a caveat though – regular vacuuming is required and any spills or marks must be attended to. Having pristine white carpet in your home doesn’t have to be a dreaded nightmare. As long as you perform some regular maintenance, remove stains immediately and hire professional carpet cleaners for deep steam cleaning; you carpet can remain white!
DIY Carpet Maintenance Tips
It is important to vacuum as often as possible with a high quality vacuum. Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists suggests once or twice a week and daily if their are pets or allergy sufferers in the home. Vacuuming is especially critical in high traffic areas where the white carpet experiences a lot of use. Vacuuming can lift a lot of the surface dirt before it has a chance to fall down deep in the carpet fibers where it will act like sandpaper causing premature wear. Vacuums with HEPA filters are the best. Remember to change or empty the vacuum bag often and change filters as needed. It is also crucial to set the vacuum height at the correct level so that it gives slight resistance as you push it over the carpet. Another key to maintaining white carpet is to ask family and other guests to remove their shoes before walking on the carpet. This will prevent them treading in dark dust, dirt and debris from outside. Ideally, wearing socks is best as the natural oils deposited on your white carpet from bare feet attracts dirt and will cause your white carpet to become discolored.
