How To Make Your Carpets Last Longer


Warm and fuzzy on the feet, carpets are an incredible flooring option. However, if they are in a high traffic area of your house, they may be subjected to severe thrashing, especially with kids and pets.

Carpets are expensive. You want to keep them in great shape for a long period of time. Here are some ways you can do that:

Vacuum Regularly

To remove visible and non-visible dry soils, pet hair, and similar contaminants from your house, it is best to vacuum your carpet twice or three times a week depending on the activities going on in there. Make sure that you use a high-quality vacuum cleaner and that it is in perfect working condition. For instance, check if the belt that moves the brushes is tight and the brushes are not cluttered with dirt. Clean the carpet thoroughly each time. To clean the edges or areas where it does not reach, use the extension with a crack and crevice tool.

Keep Your Boots Out

Well, this one’s pretty obvious. With each shoe comes a lot of dirt and foreign filth that makes a carpet really dirty. If a carpet’s life is to improve, shoes can’t come in – it’s as simple as that.

Put up a polite sign indicating ‘no shoes entry inside’ to avoid this uncomfortable conversation with your guests. Also, make sure that you have a defined area outside the room where other shoes are kept so that the visitors get their cue.

Have a Door Mat

Sometimes, it will be impossible for you to prevent people from entering with their shoes on. Having an  high-quality door mat will ensure that if people do enter with their shoes, they are doing it after wiping them. With a rubber material that has looped fibers, your door mat will trap as much dirt and dust as possible, ensuring that your carpet bears minimum of torment.

Remove Spills Proactively

When it comes to carpets, spills are really unavoidable. They are bound to happen. However, when that happens, make sure you clean them IMMEDIATELY.

If a spill is allowed to remain on a carpet for too long, it can convert into stains (spots that will be very difficult to remove). Whether you use over-the-counter carpet cleaning products or homemade items, such as baking soda, make sure you do not rub the cloth as it will push the stain deeper into the fabric of the carpet.

Hire Professional Service Regularly

This is one way that surely makes the life of your carpet longer. No matter how well you clean your carpets, it is highly recommended that you hire the services of experienced carpet cleaners at least two times a year. Using the latest methodology in carpet cleaning, such as hot water extraction, and the most effective cleaning tools, they ensure that each and every part of your carpet is free of any dust specks or stains.
