A few tips for easier carpet cleaning
When you have carpet throughout your home, you know the importance of carpet cleaning. Whether doing it yourself, or hiring a professional service to do the cleaning for you, there are some important things to keep in mind to make things go much smoother.
Keep things tidy
The most important thing to keep in mind is to tidy up often. Vacuum at least once a day to remove any dirt, debris or sediment that is tracked into your home. The longer you leave it, the deeper down into your carpet it goes, where it lodges and takes a hold. Depending upon the chemical makeup of the debris, it can sometimes create foul odors that just won’t go away without a deep cleaning.
Some people choose to ask their guests to remove their shoes when coming into their home for this very purpose. However, if you’re not comfortable with doing so, you can also place runners and area rugs in the places that will see the most amount of traffic. This works especially well if placed in areas where guests are coming straight inside from outdoors.
