Maintaining and properly cleaning your carpet in Ontario will make it last twice as long. If you have carpet in your home or business then you know how tough it can be to keep it clean. Especially challenging are those high traffic areas such as a business with customers in and out all day everyday. For homeowners, high traffic areas may include the hallway, the front entrance and to a lesser degree, every room entrance. Let Professional Carpet Systems alleviate the stress of cleaning your carpets. We have a professionally trained team that can get the job done right!
Professional Carpet Systems would like to give you a few tips on how to make your carpets last longer.
One especially helpful tip is to vacuum the carpet as much as possible. Vacuum in different directions all over the home for maximum pick up. This is particularly helpful to pull out deep embedded soils that are hard to get to. Make a habit of vacuuming as often as possible to avoid any soils to settle into the threads. This can eventually stain and discolor the carpet if not addressed regularly.
Take Care of Spills Immediately!
When spills happen, the best thing to do is to clean them up right away. Never take your time cleaning up a spill as it can stain the carpet permanently. Plain water should do the trick by dabbing the spill with a wet cloth. Do not rub it back and forth as this will only cause more widespread staining. If the water doesn’t do the job, call Professional Carpet Systems, we will get your carpets back to their pristine condition!
For high traffic areas it is helpful to use rugs or carpet runners so that the high amount of traffic doesn’t destroy or flatten the carpet being walked on. Too much pressure on one area of carpet can be stressful to the fibers causing the carpet to sink, flatten and ultimately wear out. This makes carpet look dull and worn. These areas should be protected and given TLC to lengthen the life of the carpet. Often it’s the small things that count. With some extra care, carpet can stay looking new and clean for a long time. Placing a shoe mat at the front entrance comes in handy so that people can wipe their shoes before entering, eliminating the possibility for loose soils to be embedded into the carpet.
On a yearly basis, it is recommended you have your carpets cleaned professionally. If done regularly this will not only brighten the carpet and bring it back to life, but it will also bring out any deeply embedded soils that have gotten trapped deep down in the fibers. This is definitely the way to keep the carpet in tip top shape, giving you the comfortable feel of a clean carpet with a nice look.
