5 Ways to Protect Your Carpet Cleaning

Carpet looks great in our homes and offices, but it definitely requires some TLC on the regular to keep it looking great! Below you’ll find several tips on keeping your carpet safe and protected. The Steam Team has been cleaning rugs in Austin for over 40 years. Call us today at 512-451-8326.


Utilize Door Mats


Door mats were invented for a very great purpose! They help catch dirt from the outside and on our shoes, and prevent it from reaching our beautiful carpet. Keep a door mat at each entrance to your home and you’ll be surprised at the impact it makes (just don’t forget to clean the mat itself every once in awhile)!


Remove Shoes at the Door


An impressive amount of dirt, dust, and debris cling to our shoes as we walk about. All of that debris can really take a toll on our carpet- if we let it. Another option is to leave our filthy shoes at the entrances to our homes, so that it doesn’t even have a chance to reach our carpet!


Vacuum Frequently


We simply can’t get around vacuuming and sweeping our floor! It has to be done at least once a week, depending on the amount of traffic your carpet experiences. If you have pets or children, expect to clean a little bit more frequently.


Use a Carpet Protector


Carpet protection works by repelling dirt, and by protecting it from spills and stains. It also helps to prevent wear and tear on your carpet and increases its longevity!
