Keep the Dirt Out
Having a clean carpet is important. A dirty carpet can have thousands of dust mites living in the carpet dust, and pounds of soil can accumulate underneath it every year. Carpets can contain several indoor contaminations and promote the growth of mold in damp areas which often cause allergies in children. Because it can be a health hazard, it is important to keep the carpets always clean.
Dirt causes a lot of damage to the carpet, it grates against the yarn, making scratches in the fibers and taking away the luster. Dirt trapped into the carpet eventually go down to the carpet backing and scrapes away the fibers, wearing them out. High-traffic areas will look dull and faded compared to the rest of the carpet.
As a good measure, take your shoes off when entering your home, to leave the dirt outside. When you remove your shoes, the carpets don’t get dirty very quickly so you can vacuum less often, thereby also extending the lifespan of your carpets.
If taking the shoes off is hard to implement in your home, at least keep the walkways leading to your house clean and lay down a heavy-duty doormat so that the dirt is left outside. This will cut down on the amount of dirt that gets into your house.
Hire a Professional Cleaner Regularly
Most carpet requires professional cleaning every one or two years. This is the same as regularly changing the oil in your car. Maintenance is important to make things last longer; it also applies to carpets.
Don’t do it yourself; call in the professionals. You should get the services of a reliable carpet cleaning company to service your carpets regularly.
Doing it yourself in order to save money might cost you more in the end and might not even accomplish what you wanted.🙂
