The holidays are the perfect time to think about how clean your carpets are. Did you get them professionally cleaned before your Thanksgiving guests arrived? If yes, than you probably want to keep them clean all the way through New Year’s Eve.
Here are 3 tips for keeping your carpets looking and feeling clean in between professional cleanings:
Although vacuuming does not equal cleaning, it’s what you need to do regularly to keep your carpets looking and feeling clean. Dirt and debris work their way down into the fibers of your carpet, making them feel dirty, and even worse, taking a toll on the carpet itself, wearing it out before its time. Regular vacuuming at least once a week will help keep the dirt, dust, debris, and pet hair out of there.
Don’t let spills sit on your carpet. The fastest way to attract more dirt is with something sticky, greasy, or wet. If something spills, clean it up as soon as you notice it. Use a cloth to blot up the moisture, then a damp cloth to gently scrub the area. Getting the gunk out now will prevent more gunk from settling into your carpet.
The best way to keep your carpets clean is to clean them. Regularly. Don’t let them get overly dirty before calling in the pros. Routine cleaning will keep your carpet beautiful longer, and protect your carpet, ensuring a longer life.
Keep your carpets maintained in between cleaning appointments, but don’t wait to get your carpets professionally cleaned. When it’s time for a professional visit, make an appointment with Whitehall Carpet Cleaners today.
