Carpet & Rug cleaning tips. By Choicecare Carpet

I have been in the carpet business for over twenty years.  In that time, I've learned that carpet cleaning is the subject of much confusion.  In fact, people have so many misconceptions about carpet cleaning that I decided to offer a few tips.  Misconception # 1:  You should wait as long as possible before cleaning your carpet.  No!  Dirt is abrasive like sandpaper.  Every time you step on the carpet, you grind dirt into the carpet fibers.  This cuts your carpet, just as a knife would, causing it to wear faster.  A dirty carpet will not last as long as clean carpets.  Vacuuming does helps, by itself, it's simply not enough.  The longer you wait to have your carpets cleaned, the more damage you do to your carpets and the faster it can wear out.  Spotting Hints:  Someone just spilled a cup of hot coffee on your white carpet.  Do not Panic!  Coffee can be easily gotten out by doing the following:  take a white terry cloth or towel that as been moistened with hot water.  Place the towel over the spot, do a little " Indian" dance, and walk away.  Do not move the towel for at least 8-10 hours.  Do not even peak!!  As the towel dries, the coffee will soak into the towel, leaving your carpets spot free. It just that simple.  For more tips about carpet cleaning, please visit our website @ or call us at 912-354-3067. Savannah GA  ChoiceCare Carpet Cleaning
