Ah… keeping carpet clean. The struggle! It’s not easy, especially if there are pets or children in the home. Or if you’re just clumsy and prone to spilling food and drinks! But don’t worry, if ever you’re in a true pickle with your carpet, you can always call in the professionals, like The Steam Team! We have plenty of experience and expertise when it comes to keeping carpet clean. But until we arrive, follow these 5 guidelines:
Place Doormats at Entrances and Exits
Placing doormats at the entrances and exits of your home will help catch dirt and dust before it reaches your carpet. Isn’t that a handy trick? It’ll save you time and inconvenience when vacuuming, too!
Remove Shoes at the Door
Like the doormats, removing shoes at your door will keep dirt off of carpet. Encourage every member of the household to do this, especially children (their shoes are always the muddiest!).
Carpet should be vacuumed at least weekly to keep up with dirt and dust around the home. It also prevents carpet fibers from becoming matted down, which is very unsightly. Keep your carpet clean and soft by vacuuming on the regular.
Clean Up Spills and Stains Immediately
This is rule #1 to carpet cleaning! As soon as an accident happens, clean it up! Letting liquids and spills sit on the floor increases their chances of staining your carpet!
Call the Professionals Periodically
It’s wise to occasionally call in the professionals for a deep cleaning! Sometimes, there’s only so much we can do for our carpet, and we need to let the pro’s step in.
Following these five simple “rules,” will help your carpet stay clean and looking great! And as always, don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call when you need assistance. We’re your #1 option for professional cleaning and restoration; let us prove it to you.
