Carpets make a big difference on the look and feel of your home. They make your home comfier, while being a cost-effective flooring option.
If you’re not careful with your carpets, however, it won’t be long before they get damaged beyond repair. Maintaining your home’s carpets to keep them brand new isn’t as complex as you thought.
Here are some easy ways to keep them clean and looking its best:
A ‘no-shoe’ policy
Get all your family members to keep their shoes at the door before they come in. Walking around with shoes on carpets makes them dirtier and damages the fibers quicker. Encourage visitors to take off their shoes as well. Some people offer spare slippers to their guests too!
Walking in with your shoes every day brings in a lot of dirt, grime, bacteria, moisture, into your home. Not only will this make your carpets visibly dirty, but also causes allergens and germs to enter your home. This can cause respiratory issues, allergy flare-ups, skin infections, irritated eyes, and many more health issues.
Shoes also have a harder tread than slippers and can affect the fibers of your carpet as well as its foundation. Walking on the carpet with shoes frequently will cause bald spots on the carpet and if anyone walks on them with heels, it could cause tears.
Carpet protection in high traffic areas
Who said you can’t protect your carpets from damage? Add attractive rugs in your home. Especially in areas of that have high traffic. Since rugs are smaller, they are cheaper than having carpets repaired or even replaced. Place decorative rugs on top of your home’s carpets will protect them. It also prevents dirt build up from getting to the carpet installed in your home.
Deep clean twice a year
It’s true that no one can clean the carpet better than professionals. Not only do they get the dirt out, they also restore its original color and make them smell amazing. Our technicians also condition the carpet to maintain its fibers and feel. Having professionals deep clean your home’s carpets twice a year is enough to make them last many years.
