Take Care to Make Carpets Last
Your home or business’s carpets provide a soft, durable surface for your daily activities. Of course, they can also represent a significant economic investment in your property. Taking good care of your carpets is essential to getting the best out of them in terms of wear, durability and longevity. The better you care for your carpets, the more they’ll contribute to the comfort and aesthetic beauty of your space.
How Carpeting Type, Color & Pattern Impacts Care Needs
Before you tackle your carpet needs, it’s essential to consider how carpet type, color and pattern will impact cleaning and care. Remember that it’s essential to determine what type of carpeting is installed in your home or business so that you can adjust your vacuum cleaner properly. It’s also important to keep in mind that lighter carpets tend to need more attention than darker or patterned carpets.
If you have specific questions about your carpet type and its care demands, please contact the flooring pros at S&G Carpet and More so we can help you.
Basic Carpet Care 101
Taking good care of your carpets doesn’t have to be physically strenuous or time consuming. In fact, you need only follow three simple steps in order to keep your carpets in tip-top shape. Keeping up with these tasks helps to ensure that your carpets look good and provide for the longest service life possible.
The first step in great carpet care is preventing problems before they start. One of the easiest ways to do this is to keep dirt, mud and rainwater from getting onto your carpets. Make sure that window and door screens are in good condition and that screens are closed whenever doors or windows are open. It’s also a good idea to place throw rugs at the entrances to carpeted rooms.
Encourage your friends and family members to wipe their feet on rugs before walking on carpeting. Create a space in a non-carpeted room to store rain boots and other shoes that might make messy tracks on carpets.
While it’s possible to prevent much of the dirt buildup that makes carpeting look old and dingy, you simply can’t avoid all stains. The key to dealing with stains is to treat them as quickly as possible. Many home and business owners find that simple stains can be tackled by sprinkling baking soda on the area and then pouring on a small amount of household vinegar over the soda.
On some occasions, you may need to use specialty cleaners to lift out tough stains. At S&G Carpet and More, we can help you choose the right cleaning products for all of your stains.
Of course, vacuuming your carpets regularly and choosing professional cleaning when needed is also essential to keeping your carpets in good shape. Set a vacuuming schedule that takes into account how much traffic your carpets see on a daily basis. Be sure that your vacuum is set according to carpet type or height. If it’s time for your carpets to be steam cleaned, choose professionals who can take care of difficult stain removal and cleaning without damaging your carpets or rugs.
