You take care of yourself, your body, and your skin. Hopefully, you keep a healthy eating routine, exercise frequently, and follow a skin regime. You keep yourself looking as young as you can. Are you doing the same for your carpets? If you want their good looks to be maintained, you should take the right care of them. Fairbanks Cleanpro has compiled a list of do’s and don’ts when caring and cleaning your carpets.

DON’T...

...use the same method of carpet cleaning in all of them

Not all carpets are created equally, or with the same materials, so don't treat them with the same cleaning method, as it may not work for all of them.

...assume that having the equipment equals good results

Just because the carpet cleaners you hired have the right cleaning equipment for your carpet, doesn’t mean you’ll have good results. They may have the best technology, but maybe not all employees are trained in how to use it. Make sure your cleaners have been certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification; that way you’ll know they can definitely do the job they promised.

...leave the furniture in one place

You need to rearrange your furniture periodically so it doesn’t leave a dent on your rug. Do this especially if your furniture is extra heavy. Try to avoid having direct sunlight hitting on your carpet, because the sun’s rays may deteriorate de color and appearance.

...take care of lose yarns

Carpets with big loops tend to snag, so don’t vacuum over lose yarns or try to pull them out. If you must, carefully cut the yarn with a pair of scissors, avoiding any surrounding loops.

...let stains sit

Dry and clean the stain as fast as you can. The longer you wait to clean it, the more the stain will soak into the fibers. When cleaning something, you should blot the area; rubbing may make the stain bigger and more permanent.

...overwet

Unless you have a wet-vacuum to extract the liquid in the moment, there is no way that you are going to be able to dry any water or cleaning solution that just poured on you carpet. When you pour a big amount of liquid into your carpet, it goes down and it’s absorbed by the carpet backing, and it will constantly rise up ever after repeated cleaning efforts. Don’t pour, dab.

...take forever to clean your carpet

Every time you bring dirt to a carpet, you grind it into the carpet fibers. As you do this, more and more the dirt starts cutting into the rug. You are basically taking the life out of your carpet, making it wear out faster. Sure, you may vacuum it, but that isn’t enough. The longer you wait to have it cleaned, the more damage the dirt gets to do. Better contact the best carpet cleaners in Fairbanks.

DO...

...use mats

Have mats at the entrance of your house or close to your carpets, where people are most probable to drag in dirt. This little investment can save you lots of money, by having people clean off their shoes before they walk on your carpet, you escape that extra dirt that digs into the fibers.

...vacuum regularly

Have a quality vacuum ready to use. A good vacuum cleaner can be the greatest gift you give your carpet. Vacuum regularly to prevent dust, dirt, and pet hair form accumulating.

...install carpet padding

Carpet padding is a layer that goes between the carpet and the floor. It prevents spills from reaching the actual ground and aiding in the creation of mold. It also keeps your carpet from crushing underfoot and it gives it and extra cushiony feel.

...know your carpet

Read whatever material that was provided to you alongside your carpet. Know what it is made of because every fiber material has different care instructions. You don’t want to accidentally ruin your rugs while trying to make them look better.

...blot, blot, blot

When cleaning your carpet, the best thing you can do is blot. When you’re drying a spill, blot; when you are washing a stain with soap, blot; when you are drying what you just cleaned, blot. Scrubbing can damage and untwist carpet fibers or make the stain much larger. Just blot!
