The Do's and Don'ts of Carpet Cleaning

To help you keep your carpets at their best between carpet cleanings, Fairbanks Cleanpro has these simple to follow tips.

What to Do to Keep Your Carpet Clean

Follow these simple tips to help you keep your carpet at its best all year long.

Do Place a Barrier Between the Outdoors and Your Carpet

When outdoor elements such as dirt, mud, water, and grass enter your home they can spell trouble for your carpet. To prevent these items from staining your carpet, create a barrier between the outdoors and your carpet. The easiest way to do this is by placing doormats at every entryway. This is a great way for your family members and even your guests to clean of their shoes before stepping onto your carpets. Other ideas that can reduce the amount of dirt in your home include placing a shoe rack at the entryway where you can leave your outdoor shoes or creating a mud room that gives you enough space to change your shoes and remove soiled items.

Do Vacuum Properly and Often

Carpets need to be vacuumed at least a couple times a week in order to ensure they stay clean. Properly vacuuming will help remove dirt and other debris on the surface of your carpet. Not only will this keep your carpet cleaner, it will also contribute to a nicer carpet. To get the best results, invest in a good vacuum. Most newer vacuums are equipped with great suction technology and accessories to help you reach any corner of your home. Do remember to change your vacuum's bag often or empty the dust bin regularly for the best results. When removing the dust bin or changing the bag, be sure to take care of this outdoors in order to prevent dust from flying back into your carpet.

Do Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaning Service

Although many carpet owners may not know it, professional carpet cleanings should be taken care of at least twice a year. While most associate carpet cleanings with an improved appearance, professional carpet cleaning services go beyond that. A professional service will help remove dander, allergens, and even mold spores hiding deep in your carpet fibers. Not only will this contribute to a better looking carpet, it will also help keep you carpets cleaner and safer for all in your home. Keep in mind that a cleaner carpet can contribute to cleaner air and a reduction in breathing issues, such as asthma.

What Not to Do When Trying to Keep Your Carpet at Its Best

To keep your carpet at its best, avoid doing these things:

Don't Leave Furniture in One Spot

Leaving heavy furniture in one spot for long periods of time can cause your carpet fibers to get crushed and damaged. If you notice unsightly indentations in your carpet after moving furniture around, this can be a sign of damage. While there are things you can do to get rid of the indentations, it's best that you rearrange your furniture every so often in order to prevent this wear. Keep in mind that rearranging furniture can also help cover areas that have seen a lot of foot traffic and expose those that have been hidden, reducing heavier wear in often exposed areas.

Don't Trust Any Carpet Cleaning Solution

Since all carpets are not the same, they will not have the same reaction to all carpet cleaning products. Before picking up a carpet treatment at the local grocery store, be sure it's suitable for your carpet type. Even if it's meant for use on your carpet, be sure to test it on an inconspicuous spot to avoid causing damage to an exposed part of your carpet.

Don't Let Stains Set

Spills and accidents are bound to happen on carpeting. Instead of having a meltdown, the best thing you can do is treat the stain right away. Allowing the stain to dry and set will only make removing it much harder. If you don't have a cleaning solution at home, there are plenty of items in your home that you can use to remove a stain. If the stain is caused by a liquid, start by blotting up the excess liquid with a clean washcloth. Most stains can be treated with solutions made up of dish soap, laundry detergent, or vinegar mixed with water. Quickly look up the stain and treat it promptly to avoid permanent stains in your carpet.
