You know the struggle it can sometimes be to keep carpet clean. You knew it before you got into it. But you can’t help but fall in love with it’s soft, cushiony side, can you? We can’t! So instead of feeling frustrated over your flooring, here are five ways you can help keep your carpet clean!
It can’t be avoided, friends! Your carpet must be vacuumed at least once a week with a quality vacuum cleaner (to avoid the hassle, of course). However, if you carpet experiences more foot traffic on a regular basis, you may need to increase the vacuuming. But don’t worry; it isn’t that strenuous!
House Training: Do it Right
Pet owners, we’re looking at you! If you have a pet, make sure they’re housebroken properly. Do your research and don’t skip any steps! If you have a cat, make sure they have full access to a clean litter box at all times. Make sure Fido is walked first thing in the morning. There are so many things you can do to prevent pet stains and odors!
Utilize Rugs and Runners
Rugs and runners are a great way to spice up your living space, and also help protect carpet! If you have a stubborn stain you can try to hide it with a rug as well, but we always recommend calling in the professionals for those types of stains!
Treat Stains Immediately
Ah, this one… This one, we can’t say enough! When a spill or accident happens, treat the stain immediately! Keep proper cleaning solutions on hand and stocked up, and of course make sure you have plenty of towels or paper towels, whichever you prefer. Remember friends: the quicker you treat a stain, the more likely it is to come up!
