How to Keep your carpets cleaner between professional cleanings

10/27/2014 (Permalink)

Your Carpets should be cleaned a minium of once a year, but while you are waiting for your next cleaning here are some tips on keeping your carpet new looking and in great condition. 

  • Vacuum Often:  Frequent vacuuming of at least twice wekly will keep soil from building up. 
  • Vacuum slowly:  Make one slow pass ove low traffic areas.  Make two slow passes over high traffic areas.
  • Clean Stains right away:  If the stain is allowed to set in the harder it is to remove. 
  • Straight away on stain cleaning:  If the stain is allowed to set in, it is harder and more costly to remove. 
  • No harsh chemicals:  Try a white/vinegar (equal amounts) solution instead of the harsher chemicals which can damage the carpet fibers.
  • Treat your vacuum nice:  Keep up with filter cleanings and replacements.  It is easier to get the dirt up if your vacuum is not being overworked.
  • Wipe yours paws:  When your beloved pet is ready to come back in from playing, wipe their paws as to not bring in what they were paying in.
  • No shoes allowed:  Make a place to take off shoes by the entrance ways.
  • Use area rugs and runners:  In high traffic areas, use rugs to save your carpet.
  • Just say not to carpet powders:  These may make the house smell great, but they can leave a residue behind that you are unable to pick up with your vacuum.
  • When in doubt ask:  If you hae a pesky stain that you just cannot get rid of, call SERVPRO and one of our wonderful technicians would be more than glad to assist you.
