EFFECTIVE CARPET CLEANING TIPS

Introduction

One of the most used items in our household is Carpets. It has the highest amount of traffic in our home, and cleaning your carpet is one of the most tiresome jobs when it comes to cleaning. Whether you have your whole home carpeted or you have got just a few rugs around your house, your carpets require a beating over time. We walk on our carpets daily, spill some food or drinks over them, and don’t vacuum them very often because it gets filthy. Plus, rugs are made of fibers and porous because they absorb and trap dirt and foul smell. Having clean carpets at home brings such satisfaction. A clean carpet keeps your house dust and smells free, which helps you to improve your physical and mental health.

The most common question which we get from our customers is how can they prolong their carpet life. And the answer to this question is to clean your carpets regularly and keep them dust-free. If not routinely cleaned, the dust that gets trapped in your carpet can shorten your carpet life and make it look shabby and will also be very unhealthy for you and your family.

Professional cleaning is one of the best and safest options if you want your carpets to be cleaned thoroughly; cleaners will take good care of your carpets and won’t let the quality of the carpets degrade. But if you have some spare time and want to save some bucks, we have got some affordable house cleaning tips for you.

Tips To Clean Your Carpet

Dust is one of the worst enemies of your carpet. It makes your carpet look shabby and dirty, and it also damages the carpet inside out as time goes by. Dusty carpets can also affect our health. Inhaling dust can cause or aggravate the symptoms of respiratory diseases like bronchitis or asthma. Even if you don’t suffer from respiratory disease, the accumulated dust can still go into your respiratory system and can be proved harmful to you. So, it’s better to keep your carpets dust-free. Here are some tips for the same

1. Make your house a Shoe Free Zone

This method helps to bring down the dust level in your home. This may sound strange to you, but if you remove your shoes as soon as you enter your home, you lower the amount of dust that enters your home and will keep the dirt and dust away from your rugs and carpets. You can also keep a spare pair of footwear for your home, which you will not wear outside.

2. Buy Dirt-Repelling Rugs and Carpets

There are different varieties of carpets available in the market. First, try buying dirt repelling or stain-resistant carpets, which will make your life easier. These rugs are designed in such a way that it keeps the dirt out of the fibers. Second, if you plan to buy a carpet for a high traffic area, you can buy a loop pile. Loop pile carpets are durable, high impact, and the loop weave helps prevent dust and dirt from getting in.

3. Dust Before Vacuum

Don’t do dusting after you have already vacuumed your rugs. If you dust after you have vacuumed your rugs and carpets, the dirt after the dusting will again settle back on your carpets, making them dirty again. Before you start dusting, make sure fans are turned off because if the fans are kept on while dusting, the dust will be scattered in the air, and there will be no benefit of dusting. After you are done with dusting, it’s time for you to vacuum your carpets and pull off the dirt which has been settled there.

4. Vacuum Under the Furniture Too

When it’s time for you to vacuum the carpet, make sure you move the furniture around. The dust tends to settle in tight spots(generally under or behind the furniture), which you don’t usually reach while cleaning. In addition, you can find a high concentration of dust under the furniture as many people don’t bother cleaning it for a long time. So, that’s why it is essential to clean every inch of your carpet thoroughly, so you should make sure to move the furniture around when vacuuming, and you can avoid permanent damage to the rug.

5. Remove Greasy Stains From your Carpet

Greasy stains are the most challenging stains to remove, but they can be removed using baking soda. Start by vacuuming your carpet; If you don’t remove the dirt from the carpet before cleaning, it can further damage your carpet. Take a tissue paper or a paper towel to soak as much grease as possible. Don’t rub or scrub the stain. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on top of the stain and use a brush to rub the soda into the fibers. Let it sit overnight so that it can be more efficient. After you have let it sit for a while, vacuum up the baking soda. If you can still see the stain put a drop of dish soap on the top of the stain mixed with some water. Repeat the steps if necessary

6. Remove Non-Greasy Stains From your Carpet

Before starting with any cleaning process, always remember to vacuum first, as if you don’t remove the dirt first, you can damage the carpet, and you can also risk causing even more stains. After eliminating the dirt from the carpet, it’s time to bring in our superstar, baking soda. Sprinkle some baking soda over the stain and sprinkle hot water over the baking soda. Let the mixture sit over the stain for some time, preferably overnight. After you have let the mixture sit over the stain for a while, it’s time for you to vacuum up the baking soda. Repeat the steps if necessary.
