Purchasing a carpet is usually a large investment for any homeowner, and with a little tender loving care your carpet can continue to look good for years to come. Carpets act similar to an air conditioner filter: the fibers trap and hold onto dirt, dander, soil, oils, grime and even odors. If you wait for the carpets to look soiled, you’ve waited too long. Soil and dirt are very abrasive and actually act like sandpaper which can scratch and etch the carpet fibers. Each time we walk on the carpet, the dirt in the carpet grinds on the fibers.
How can I make my carpet last longer?
Vacuuming your carpet regularly is the key to prolonging the life of your carpet. Vacuuming removes 79% of loose soil from the carpet fibers. Ensure that your vacuum is performing efficiently by following your vacuum cleaner instruction manual. Ensure lasting beauty and healthy carpets by vacuuming weekly for the number of occupants. For example, if there are 2 adults, 3 children and 2 pets, you should vacuum high use areas 7 times a week.
Blot spills quickly. We all get those unexpected spills from time to time, so try to keep white terry towels close for quick clean ups. By placing clean towels under couch cushions they’re always in easy reach. Blot spots–NEVER rub and scrub.
