Avoid Getting Dirt on Your Carpets

Getting a bit of dirt in your home is inevitable, but too much dirt can cause some unfortunate issues. Removing dirt from hard surfaces is easy enough, but when it comes to carpeting, it can be a bit tougher. It is important that you act quickly to clean it up because it can cause permanent stains, unpleasant odors and mold growth. Here at Fairbanks Cleanpro, we have some suggestions to help keep dirt away from your carpets.

Pets and Small Children on Your Carpet

You may be very careful when stepping onto your carpet, but others might not. Pets and small children most likely don't notice when they're taking dirt into the house. The best way to avoid a mess is by stopping it before it happens. Be aware of when your pets are outdoors and make sure their paws are clean when they head back inside. Create a space between your front door and the carpeted areas of your home. Something like a mud room can give your children a space to clean their shoes or change out of their outdoor shoes into clean indoor ones.

Create Some Barriers Between the Outdoors and Your Carpet

Dirt not only sticks to the soles of your shoes, it can also fly right into your home. Prevent tracking dirt onto your carpets by making them shoe-free zones. Be sure to check out some recommendations if you choose to make it a shoe-free zone. You can also use doormats to clean dirt off your shoes before entering the house. Floor mats in high traffic areas of your home are also a good idea to reduce wear and prevent dirt buildup. Make sure your doors and windows stay closed if it's windy out. Dirt can be very sneaky and find its way in through any open area.

Dealing with Dirt on Your Carpet

Vacuum your carpets regularly in order to get rid of any dirt that may have found its way into your home. If you find a mud stain, treat it as soon as possible. Get rid of any excess dirt on the surface with a vacuum. Next, dip a clean washcloth in detergent and warm water and blot the affected area. Blot the area with a clean washcloth and rinse the spot with warm water. Blot one last time to remove any leftover liquid and let the area dry completely.
