Try These 4 Tips from Our Carpet Cleaners

Establishing and sticking to a carpet care routine in between carpet cleaning appointments from Clean Nation Chem-Dry will help maintain the carpet’s beauty and comfortable texture for many years to come.

Wondering what types of activities should be included in your routine? Review the following four tips from our carpet cleaners and consider implementing them into your normal cleaning process.


Tip #1: Vacuum Frequently  

Hopefully this comes somewhat as a no-brainer, but we’re here to tell you again. Your carpets trap immense amounts of dirt, dust, and allergens. It can almost be compared to an air filter, helping keep trapped particles from circulating further into your home and into the air that you breathe. Be careful though, once carpets reach a certain threshold of trapped particles, they may lose their filter-like functionality.

You can extract a lot of the dust and dirt from the tops of your carpets before they settle into the backings of the carpet fibers with a good vacuum. You’ll help to retain your carpet’s filter-like functionality and help to mitigate potential traffic lanes from appearing. Try and vacuum carpeted areas on a weekly basis or more depending on the amount of foot traffic that they receive.


Tip #2: Promptly Deal With Stains

Uh-oh, one of your kids just spilled some juice on the carpet. What’s the first thing that you should do? Do your best to avoid ever allowing stains to settle on your carpet. Instead, absorb any excess pigment with a white cloth by carefully dabbing the affected area. Don’t scrub at the stain! This excessive agitation can cause the stain to settle more permanently into the carpet fibers. Once you feel you’ve done your best at cleaning up the stain, call in a professional carpet cleaner who can remove the stain without spreading it to the surrounding carpet fibers.


Tip #3: Keep Dirt From Entering Your Home

It’s almost impossible to prevent even the slightest amount of dirt from entering your house. But there are some measures that you can take to limit the amount of dirt that gets trapped in your carpets. One of these measures is implementing a “no shoes in the house” policy.  If you find that this policy is hard to stick to, at the very least use doormats both inside and outside your home to limit the amount of dirt from being tracked inside.


Tip #4: Reach Out to Our Professional Carpet Cleaners

While the tips that we’ve mentioned so far will do a lot of good for your carpets, there is still some dirt and allergens that get trapped in your carpets that you just can’t get out by yourself. Once every six months to a year, depending on the usage of the carpeted area, you should have your carpets professionally attended to.
