Carpet manufacturers recommend you get the carpets professionally cleaned 1-2 times a year in conjunction with your carpet care, routine vacuuming, and spot cleaning. Carpets should be cleaned every 6 months when they are exposed to a lot of foot traffic and dustier climates as well as homeowners with asthma and allergy tendencies and with indoor pets. You generally want to extend that beautiful carpet glow as long as possible when you do dedicate the time and money into getting the carpet professionally cleaned. We at Steam Magic Carpet Cleaning have compiled some pointers on how you keep the professional clean for your carpets longer to help you in your efforts.
Let Carpet Dry After Carpet Cleaning
The technicians will use powerful extraction equipment to circulate water, push the detergent through the carpet in order to pull out the deep-rooted soil, stains, and odors during a professional cleaning. The carpets are left vibrant, fresh, and slightly damp at the conclusion of the service. Before they leave including the general time the carpets will take to fully dry, the specialist will often leave directions. Depending on climate and weather conditions and other factors, dry time varies. Ensure they are completely dry before you let the household start walking on the carpet in any case. Same rule applies if you treat spills and stains as well.
Wear Socks or Indoor Slippers on Carpets
Too much filth will be tracked in to mar the carpets, so do not track worn shoes over freshly cleaned carpets. Because the natural oil skin produces will smear on the carpet’s surface where dust will settle, it is best to avoid bare feet too. Commit to wearing socks or slipper that is exclusively worn indoors.
Clean Up Carpet Spills Right Away
Potentially leaving a stain is any substances that fall onto carpets. The harder they are to remove, the longer they sit. It is best to immediately treat any spills. First try using pure water, avoid using hot water when treating spills and spots. Do not skip the patch test performed test in an inconspicuous area to ensure the color or fibers will not be compromised, in the event water is not enough, no matter if you prefer carpet cleaners or homemade solutions. Make sure you practice blotting to absorb it into the sponge or rag instead since carpet fibers will soak up substances with rubbing techniques. Only use white paper towels, cloths, and towels, never use implements that have dyes or prints as they can potentially be transferred to the carpet when treating the spills.
Properly Vacuum Carpet
You should vacuum 2-3 times a day and you cannot damage the carpets with excessive vacuuming contrary to popular myth. The carpets have dirt, pollutants, contaminates, allergens, and debris that will contribute to damage if not removed, whether they look like they need it or not. Make certain to vacuum as frequently as possible to help keep the carpets looking immaculate after a professional cleaning.
