Carpet Care Tips


No matter how hard you try, the carpet will definitely suffer from spills, drops, accidents and everything that is at the bottom of the shoes of people walking on the carpet. However, there are a few tips that can help you maintain the appearance of your carpet and minimize these occurrences. These tips will not only help you in maintaining the appearance of your carpet but will also help in reducing the time and energy that you generally spend on cleaning it.

Let us have a look at few of the most beneficial ones-

  1. When it comes to choosing a vacuum for your carpet, make sure that you consider the type of carpet you have. You can go with a vacuum that features a beater bar, a rotating brush or one that only offers suction. Make sure that you only choose a vacuum that is approved by CRI as the CRI-approved vacuums function at the correct frequency to prevent damage to the carpet.
  2. Vacuum the carpet on a regular basis without fail. This will allow you to maintain its beauty and enhance its life-expectancy.
  3. If there is a spill on the carpet, make sure that you treat it immediately. The longer the spill will stay on the carpet, the more difficult it will be to remove stains caused by the spill.
  4. Avoid using sticky cleaners as they generally sit on the surface even after the cleaning process and work as dirt-magnet. This will only result in soiling of the carpet.
  5. Never use cleaning products that contain harsh chemicals. These chemicals can damage the fabric of the carpet overtime.
  6. Based on the traffic in your home, it is very important to get the carpet cleaned professional atleast one in 6 months or a year. This will help in eliminating the dirt, grim and other contaminants that are not removed by vacuuming. We at Chem-Dry offer 6-month carpet cleaning program to ensure that your carpet is thorough cleaned at regular intervals.
  7. It is also very important to take measures to prevent dirt and grime to get on your carpet. The dirt and grime can be substantially reduced if the footwear is removed at the door and no one is allowed to walk on the carpet with their footwear.
  8. Runners and mats do an excellent job of reducing the amount of dirt and grime from the bottom of the footwear. Place them strategically indoors as well as outdoors to reduce the amount of dirt and grime that reaches to your carpet.
  9. It is also very important to replace the filters in your HVAC system as they help in reducing the amount of dust and other particles from the air. As a result, lesser amount of these particles will settle on the carpet.
