Carpet functions like a giant air filter, collecting our home’s dirt and dust. Those two Ds act like fine sandpaper, wearing down carpet fibers over time, says Boaz Sawicki, owner of Carpet Cleaning Sydney and an ITI-certified carpet-cleaning technician. Boaz gives the go-ahead for skipping a weekly whole-home vacuum in favour of vacuuming high-traffic areas once a week or more. “By just quickly vacuuming the high-soil areas in the entries and toward the front of your home, you can add years to the life of your carpet. It’s also important to try different angles and corners every time you vacuum your carpet, so that you could reach dirt that is not accessible if you vacuum it a certain way on a regular basis. ” he says.
While vacuuming, take your time and use overlapping strokes. “We train our people to count slowly to three during each forward and backward stroke, to make sure they give the vacuum time to do its work,” Boaz says.
Treat Stains Immediately
Take care of stains as soon as they happen, if possible. Most carpets today are made to resist liquid penetration for a time, so if you simply blot (don’t rub!) it dry with a clean cloth right away, the stain may not have a chance to set. If blotting alone doesn’t do the trick, move on to treating with natural options, such as soda water or borax, or store-bought cleaners. Always follow label directions and use gloves. Then vacuum it an hour later and you will find that the stains and moulds have disappeared.
Is The Room Stinks?
You feel that your room stinks and after thoroughly searching you find that your carpet is the reason? Then you need to freshen it up. If you can’t steam clean your carpet, try this mixture: Baking Soda + cloves + Rosemary + cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture on your carpet and vacuum it off later.
Consider having your carpet professionally steam cleaned once or twice a year. Think about cleaning your carpet a long term investment that will keep your carpet clean, odor-free and mold-free. With these tips your carpet will always look clean and beautiful even if you have it for decades.
While I was sitting here at my desk writing this article, I was wondering to myself what goes through people’s minds when they look at their carpet these days. I came up with a few thoughts; 1) it’s not too bad right now 2) I’ll just use a spot cleaner on it 3) I don’t know any good carpet cleaning company 4) I’d have it cleaned but it cost too much 5) I don’t have the time to clean it myself.
