3 important tips to maintain your carpet’s appearance
Take Shoes Off when entering your home
The habit of removing your shoes before entering your home can help save your room carpeted. Shoes can drag in all sorts of dirty things. Placing a door mat hold them can help remind you. Get some slippers that can only be worn inside the house.
Vacuum your carpets at least twice a month or even more often if the room gets a lot of foot traffic. Your vacuum is the best defense against dirt, dust and other things and it helps keeping it maintained. Change the bag or empty the canister before it gets full, remove the debris from the brushes and wipe the vacuum to keep it dust free.
Include lint-free rags that can be slightly dampened to blot spills. A bottle of carpet cleaner is a must. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for use. The best bet is to let it set, and then remove as much cleaner as you can with a plastic scraper. Scrape away as much of the cleaner as possible without rubbing it into the carpet fibers. Once that’s done, blot away the rest. The last item in the kit should be a soft-bristle brush to brush the fibers of the carpet back into shape.
