It’s impossible to keep your floors from gathering some sort of contamination over time, but with proper care you can greatly reduce the amount of contaminants for a cleaner and longer lasting carpet. Here are a few tips.
Heavy traffic areas
Identify the heavy traffic areas of your carpet. Vacuum these areas often. Regular vacuuming with a quality vacuum prevents the accumulation of grit dust particles that damage carpet fibers. Dirt particles can work their way down deep into carpet fibers. Friction from walking on the dirty fibers causes unnecessary wear to the carpet. Vacuuming should be done at least once per week.
Use a protectant such as Scotchguard
Protectant such as Scotchgard is readily available at stores and can be applied to newly cleaned carpets easily. Scotchgard returns the stain resistant properties to your carpets, putting a barrier between your fabrics and potentially damaging spills and debris. Carpets, rugs, and upholstery that’s Scotchguard treated also cleans up faster and easier. A Plus uses a commercial grade Scotchguard that is heavily concentrated, safe for all fabrics, and safe for people and pets. If you don’t have the equipment to apply the protectant yourself, then call A Plus Carpet Cleaning, Redding Ca.
A little more attention to doors & windows
The doors & windows of room are one of the main sources of dust & dirt particles. Do not keep the doors & windows open for long time. You would be amazed how much pollen and dust can enter a house with 24 hours through an open window. Once you start paying attention to this, you can feel the difference in a day or two. This is one of the simplest steps that will help you keep your carpet cleaner for long time.
Remove as you see
The stains will become stubborn as the time passes. So, remove the stains as you see. Do not wait for long. Use wet cloth to absorb the stains immediately after spill. Do Not Rub; this is very vicious to carpet. Paying regular attention to the accidental stains will surely keep your carpet cleaner for long time.
Remove your shoes when entering the home and place floor mats down at entry points.
Something as simple as removing your shoes can as years of life to your carpet. Everything on your shoes is brought into the home where eventually the debris is deposited into your carpet. Would you lay in the street and roll around? Probably not. Then why would you lay on your carpet after your shoes have treaded everywhere? If removing your shoe isn’t feasible a good place to start is by placing floor mats are each door. Floor mats are extremely effective at catching dirt, mud, and grease. They are also easily cleaned and replaced.
