Tips to Help Keep Your Carpets Clean This Winter

If the winter generally means more stains in your carpet, the information in this post can help your fight those stains and keep your carpets cleaner all season long.

Add Extra Protection to Your Carpets

The winter season is full of festive decorations and holiday cheer. While all this may be tons of fun, it can also mean trouble for your carpets. To keep your carpets from developing new stains while maintaining your holiday cheer, look for simple ways to keep your carpets protected. For example, to keep tree sap and other elements from your natural Christmas tree from ending up in your carpet, use a tree skirt. If you're having family and friends over for a holiday celebration, place area rugs in spaces where drinking and eating may occur over your carpets. Festive area rugs will add to the festive feel while catching any stains that may end up in your carpet.

Watch Your Pets

Most pets are happy to come and go as they please, but during the winter this can mean added trouble for your carpets. Rain, snow, and mud can all end up on your carpet after your pet heads outdoors for some fresh air. If your pet gets their paws into some mud while outside, they most likely won't let you know when they head back inside. Because of situations like this, it's best that you keep an eye on your pets and be aware of when they step outside. You can head out with them or keep a close eye on them so that you know when they wander back inside. Either way, be sure to give them a clean down before they're allowed back on your carpet. To make this easier, keep some clean washcloths by the door and even some water to clean off your pet's coat and paws after an outdoor break.

Build a Mudroom

If your town experiences harsh weather regularly, a mudroom is a great investment. A mudroom is a space at the entryway that serves as a barrier between the outdoors and your home's interior. The flooring is generally tile or some other non-porous flooring that won't absorb moisture. You can place a bench and shoe rack in this area to make changing into indoor shoes much easier. If you have pets, having this space will also make cleaning them off after an outdoor adventure much easier. Not only can your change your shoes in this area, you can also include a coat rack or coat hooks to hang wet and dirty items that can also cause carpet and upholstery stains. Don't put off getting your carpets cleaned any longer! Contact Fairbanks Cleanpro for the best carpet cleaning service in Fairbanks. Give them a call at (907) 388- 7768 to learn more about their patented CLEANPRO Carpet Cleaning System.

Invest in Doormats

If you don't have enough space for a mudroom in your home, placing doormats at main entryways is a great way to create another barrier between the outdoors and your carpets. An outdoor doormat will help you dry wet shoes and scrape off built on debris so that it doesn't get dragged into your home and onto your carpets. Even if you don't notice dirt on your shoes, a doormat can help trap dirt that would otherwise make its way into you carpet fibers. There are many types of doormats that serve different functions, so be sure to purchase the right one for your needs.

Vacuum More Regularly

Because of the inclement weather and general outdoor conditions, your carpet may benefit from more frequent vacuuming. Your shoes may be dragging in more moisture and dirt than normal, causing issues for your carpet. Vacuuming more often can help remove dirt left on the surface of your carpet and mold spores under the carpet's surface. If your vacuum doesn't have the same suction power it once did, consider investing in a new model that will help keep your carpet cleaner.

Have Your Carpets Cleaned

Professional carpet cleanings are recommended at least twice a year. If your carpet looks or smells like it could use some help, now is the perfect time to get your carpet professionally cleaned. Whether you want to fix it up before hosting a holiday party or if a holiday party left behind more stains than expected, a carpet cleaning service will have your carpets looking great in no time!
