A bit of care and attention is required to keep your carpets in tip-top condition. Here are some tips to keeping your carpet looking and smelling great.
A beautiful carpet adds an air of elegance and style to any space. However, it will require some care and attention to maintain its appearance and quality. Thankfully, it’s never been easier to look after this flooring option. Below are a few tips to help you care for and maintain your own.
Keeping outside mats at every outside entrance can work wonders when it comes to reducing or preventing mud and dirt from being tracked onto your carpets. Make it a rule that all family members and visitors to your home need to wipe off their shoes before entering. You could also create a personal habit of not wearing shoes in rooms such as the bedroom.
In addition to regular vacuuming, you’ll need to invest in a good quality carpet cleaner to deal with spills or stains. Don’t waste money on multiple products that don’t work – instead invest in one proven, quality product.
Take immediate action when a spill occurs to avoid it becoming a stain. A good idea is to keep an emergency kit with stain removers and other tools close at hand. That way there’s no time wasted trying to get everything together. The quicker the spill is dealt with, the less the risk of staining.
A good tip to get carpets smelling fresh is using baking soda. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up space and is also non-toxic for children and pets. Sprinkle a bit of baking soda over an area, leave it for a few minutes, then vacuum the space.
Enlist the services of a professional cleaning company to deep clean your carpets at least every two years. Even if your carpet seems fine, a deep clean will remove hard to reach dirt, keeping it clean, hygienic and smelling good for longer.
