How to Effectively Care for Your Carpet At Home

Proper carpet care can make a huge difference when it comes to your carpet's lifespan. To ensure your carpet has a long life, follow these tips from Lehigh Cleanpro in Lehigh Valley.

Create Barriers

To prevent stains from appearing on your carpet you will need to take preventative measures. Creating barriers between your carpets and stain causing agents is one way to stop stains before they have a chance to happen. Using doormats at entryways is an easy way to stop stain causing agents from entering your home. Doormats will help remove dirt, water, and mud from shoes, helping reduce the number of stains your carpet develops. To take this one step further, create a mud room where you can change out of your outdoor shoes and into indoor shoes before stepping onto your carpet. A mud room is also ideal if you have pets who will need their paws cleaned after spending time outdoors. Placing runners and rugs in carpeted areas that experience a lot of foot traffic will help keep these areas stain free and in better shape over time.

Invest in the Proper Cleaning Tools

If you want to keep your carpet looking and feeling its best, using the proper tools for maintenance and cleaning can make a huge difference. Start by investing in a great vacuum that will keep your carpet in top shape. You don't have to spend a ton of money since most newer vacuum models offer great suction, an array of tools, and a decent amount of power. Newer models will make your work easier and more effective, helping to keep your carpet clean while causing you less strain. Investing in the right tools won't be enough. A great vacuum won't do much if you don't use it regularly. To properly care for your vacuum, use it at least a couple times a week and empty the canister or replace the bag before they're full. Be sure to work outdoors when emptying the canister or replacing the bag since dust and other particles can escape and end up back in your carpet or upholstery. If it's time for a professional carpet cleaning, contact Lehigh Cleanpro in Lehigh Valley. Give them a call at (610) 739- 3317 to get your carpet back to its best. Their Cleanpro Carpet Cleaning System is a natural process that is safe for everyone in your home.

Get to Know Your Carpet

It's no secret that all carpets are not the same. Carpets are made of different materials each with their own pile type and length. This means that maintenance tricks used for one carpet may not apply to all other types of carpet. An easy way to understand your carpet and its needs is by reading the manufacturers care manual if you still have it. If you threw it out without giving a read, don't worry, it's quite easy to research carpet types on the internet. Avoid treating your carpet before getting to know what techniques are safe to use.

Get Professional Cleaning Help

No matter how great you are at carpet care and maintenance, you will still need to invest in professional carpet cleaning services at least a couple times a year. A professional carpet cleaning service will help restore your carpet while removing set in stains and getting rid of pesky odors. You may not notice that your carpet needs professional help until you see the results a cleaning service can accomplish. Instead of putting off a professional carpet cleaning, schedule one today!

Treat Carpet Stains Properly

Before treating a stain in your carpet, be sure you're using the proper techniques to get rid of it. Not all stains will be treated using the same technique or products, but there are some basic tips to make the process safer and more effective. Most stains should be treated right away to prevent them from setting. To remove a fresh stain start by blotting away as much of the stain causing agent as possible. Avoid rubbing the stain and instead blot the area with a clean washcloth working your way from the outside of the stain to the center. When treating the stain with a cleaning solution, avoid soaking your carpet and instead gently blot the solution onto the stain. Remember to always test carpet cleaning solutions on a small, hidden part of your carpet before applying them to large areas. This will help prevent potential damage to your carpet.
