Sometimes an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. That’s certainly true when it comes to your carpets. While it’s always a good idea to have your carpets professionally cleaned on a regular basis, there are things you can do to keep them looking good between cleanings.
1. Wipe your feet – There’s no doubt you heard your mother tell you this time and again when you were younger. Well, she was right. If you have an outdoor and indoor mat that you and others can wipe their feet before entering the rest of the house, your carpet will stay and look cleaner. In fact, 90 percent of the dirt that comes into your home comes from your shoes, and this happens in the very first step.
2. Clean up spots right away – People are busy in today’s fast-paced world, but the truth is, you need to clean up a spill right away. The sooner you do so, the more likely you will be able to get all of the spot up. If you wait because you’re too busy to do it right now, the stain can set, and it may be impossible to get it up later without a professional cleaning.
3. Change your air filters – You may not connect the air filters in your heating system and your carpets, but they are more closely related than you realize. Carpets will attract and hold on to all sorts of dust and dirt particles. If your filers are not changed on a regular basis, the particles that they would normally remove from your home will end up in your carpet.
