Maybe you call Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond for regular carpet cleaning, and you might think that’s good enough. However, your Edmond carpet cleaning experts want you to know that your carpets might need a little more care if you want to keep them clean and in good shape.
Plus, thorough carpet care will not only keep your home looking great, but will also help boost indoor air quality, making your living space healthier and more comfortable. It’s also worth pointing out that caring for your carpet can prevent you from having to invest in a new carpet sooner than you’d like.
Try These 4 Tips from Our Carpet Cleaners
Much like anything else in life, the secret to maintaining your carpet is to develop a good routine. Carpet cleaning isn’t something you only need to think about when you call your local Edmond carpet cleaners once or twice a year. Instead, carpet care should be a routine part of your everyday life.
Wondering what types of activities should be included in your routine? Review the following four tips from our carpet cleaners and consider implementing them into your normal cleaning process.
Tip #1: Vacuum Frequently
Many people only vacuum when their carpets are visibly dirty. However, It’s important to avoid waiting to vacuum until your carpet is showing signs of dirt accumulation and traffic patterns. Vacuuming on the regular can keep these telltale signs from ever appearing.
It will also ensure dirt on the surface doesn’t find its way down to the backing pad of the carpet, where it is harder to remove on your own. Once the dirt has settled into your carpet, it can even wear down the fiber of your carpet, destroying it. Regular vacuuming prevents this build-up you can’t even see.
At a bare minimum, you should vacuum every week. If you have kids or pets, you may want to up that to several times a week or even every day, depending on the use your carpets get.
Tip #2: Take Care of Stains Right Away
We all try to spill on our carpets, but sometimes it happens. What matters is that you treat spills as soon as they occur. Do your best to avoid ever allowing stains to set on your carpet. Instead, absorb any excess pigment with a white cloth by carefully dabbing the affected area. What happens next depends on the severity of the stain. For some spills, just dabbing water on the area is effective. Other stains can be removed with your can of Chem-Dry Spot Remover. For more stubborn stains, give your Edmond carpet cleaning experts a call.
Tip #3: Keep Dirt From Entering Your Home
The less dirt that enters your home in the first place, the cleaner your carpets will be. Having a “no shoes in the house” policy is a simple yet effective way to limit the amount of dirt and grime your carpet is exposed to in the first place. If you’re having trouble making this policy stick, at the very least use doormats both inside and outside your home and teach your kids to wipe their feet. We’ve even seen pets trained to wipe off their paws every time they come inside. Any little bit to reduce dirt in your home makes a difference.
Tip #4: Reach Out to Our Professional Carpet Cleaners
And of course, even with all of your best care, carpets still need to be professionally cleaned every six months to a year. When you call Chem-Dry of OKC/Edmond, you can have your carpets carefully cleaned without excess water, meaning they’ll be quick to dry.
Plus, our expert carpet cleaners work with a cleaning solution based on nature’s chemistry rather than harsh, soapy detergents that leave behind a dirt-attracting residue. As a result, we won’t just get your carpet cleaner than before. We’ll also help it stay cleaner for longer, making your carpet care routine that much easier.
