Tips to Keep Your Carpet Clean All Year Long

Keeping your carpet clean and tidy doesn't have to be difficult. Follow these basic tips to help keep your carpet at its best all your long!

Use Your Vacuum Properly

Vacuuming your carpet regularly is a great way to ensure your carpet stays clean and free of dirt. We have some simple tips to help ensure your vacuuming is as effective as possible.

Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming goes a long way in ensuring dirt and other unsanitary agents are removed from your carpet. However, vacuuming should be done at least a couple times a week in order to ensure your carpet is at its best. If you have pets or small children in your home, vacuuming will need to be done more often. This will help reduce the build up of dirt, pet hair and mold spores that can hide in your carpet fibers.

Get the Most Out of Your Vacuum

Before you star vacuuming, check your vacuum's filter or bag. A dirty filter or bag can cause your vacuum to lose some of its suction power. Replace vacuum bags that are more than halfway full and filters that are visibly very dirty. These simple steps can help ensure your vacuum's suction is at its best and that your carpet is being properly cleaned. Don't forget to vacuum at a slow speed. This will help ensure vacuum passes over carpeted areas are effective and will properly suck up all the dirt in the space. Make one pass over low traffic areas and at least two over areas that experience more foot traffic.

Prevent Stains in High Traffic Areas

While vacuuming can help keep your carpet clean and looking great, you can do more to prevent damage to your carpet. If your vacuuming isn't doing enough to keep the area clean, consider using mats to prevent further damage. Place mats inside and outside your home to prevent dragging in dirt, mud and water. You may also consider having special indoor only shoes for each member of your family. To schedule your next professional carpet cleaning in Allentown, contact Lehigh Cleanpro!

Treat Carpet Stains Right Away

Carpet stains are bound to happen no matter how careful you are. The trick to removing them effectively is usually in treating them as soon as they happen. Use these simple tips to prevent stains from setting in your carpet.

Act Right Away to Prevent Permanent Carpet Stains

No matter the type of stain, do your best to treat it as soon as it happens. If you notice a new stain in your carpet, but don't know when it happened it might prove harder to remove. You should still treat it right away and do your best to remove it.

Avoid Scrubbing Carpet Stains

If you're working on removing a carpet stain, avoid scrubbing or rubbing the stain. These techniques can cause the stain to spread and penetrate deeper into your carpet fibers. Instead, blot the area with a clean washcloth to absorb the staining agent. Start by blotting the outer edge of the stain and work your way to the center.

Use Basic Cleaning Tools for Fresh Carpet Stains

Water is a great tool for removing fresh carpet stains. Use a clean, white washcloth to blot the area and remove as much as the stain as possible. Use a little bit of water to moisten the area and continue absorbing the stain. You'll have to be patient since some stains can be stubborn. Continue adding moisture to the stain and blotting the area until the stain is gone. If the stain is stubborn, you can use a cleaning solution made up of warm water and clear dish soap. Rinse the area with cold water when you're done and dry the area completely before allowing foot traffic to pass through.

Get Your Carpets Professionally Cleaned

Professional carpet cleanings are recommended at least twice a year in order to keep your carpets looking and smelling great. A professional carpet cleaning service will use professional equipment and techniques to extract dirt and other stain causing agents from your carpet. Prepare your home to receive a professional carpet cleaning company and be sure to point out trouble areas. Professional cleaners will know how to treat stains in all types of carpet fibers. Don't be afraid to ask for tips and advice about how to keep your carpets clean between professional cleanings.
