If you’ve had carpet in your home for very long at all, then you know they should be professionally cleaned about once every twelve to eighteen months. Busier homes might require more frequent cleanings while homes with less traffic may get by for a bit longer. No matter how often you have your carpets cleaned, however, keeping your professionally cleaned carpet clean is always the most important part.
But how can you accomplish that? We have some tips that might just help, and we’re going to share them with you now.
Professionally Cleaned Carpets Can Stay Cleaner Longer
One of the most common things homeowners can do to keep their professionally cleaned carpets looking and smelling fresh is to purchase a carpet with stain protection built right into the fibers themselves. An alternative plan would be to add some form of stain protection after installation. However, added stain protection can create health hazards, especially if you have people in your home that have asthma or other breathing conditions.
The good news is, you don’t have to go nearly that far to keep your floors looking cleaner longer. Here are some additional tips that are sure to help!
- Runners or areas rugs can go a long way in helping to maintain that fresh clean look and smell after having your floors professionally cleaned. When placed in high traffic areas, or in places where guests come inside from directly outside, they can catch and trap dirt and debris. This keeps that debris from making its way onto your flooring where it can get crushed down into the fibers to create dinginess, stains, and foul odors.
- Immediate spot-cleaning is another way to make sure your carpets don’t get dirty too soon after professional cleaning. If you see a footprint, stain, spill, or any other mess that could potentially cause problems, treat it immediately.
