There are some maintenance steps that extend beyond the basics when it comes to the care of your carpets. Most people become motivated to keep their carpets in great condition for years to come when they invest in high-quality carpeting. The cleanliness of the carpets contributes to the indoor air quality and so much more of the home’s integrity, and the health and condition of the carpets is not necessarily reflected at face value. We at Carpet Dry-Tech would like to share the maintenance and the importance of it.
How Frequent Should You Vacuum?
Ideally, vacuuming the carpets should happen daily, however, we know not everyone has the time or capabilities to get it done that often, but at the very least, they should be vacuumed once a week. Make sure to vacuum the rooms that are seldom walked on at least once a week as well. Whether it is dragged on the bottom of shoes, feet, and paws, or settles on the surface from indoor air, dirt and debris settle on the surface. The deterioration of the carpets is accelerated as the dirt and debris are a natural abrasive, when the traction, or simply walking back and forth, creates a sandpaper-like effect. The dirt buildup makes carpets look dull, matted, dingy, and old as well. The carpets look amazing and well-preserved simply with routine vacuuming as you collect the majority of the dirt and debris.
Protect Carpet from Sun Damage?
It is ideal to prevent over exposure from the sun’s rays to your carpets as a part of care. The carpets will dry out and the color can discolor and fade due to over exposure to direct UV rays. Invest in UV film protectors, blinds, curtains or drapes to cover the windows during peak sunlight exposure, and if you can, rearrange the furniture every 6 months to protect the carpets from the direct sunlight. Also, you can even out the wear on the carpets by rearranging the furniture can also create new walkway paths.
Professional Carpet Cleaning Services
Carpet manufacturers recommend that you routinely book professional cleaning services every 6-12 months. The warranty is only valid with documented proof of professional cleaning in many cases. Expert, deep carpet cleaning is executed by trained and experienced technicians that use powerful equipment and detergents. Carpets are fresh, vibrant, and spotless as professional carpet cleaning dissolves stains, neutralizes odors, and extracts the dirt and debris. The dry soil that escapes settle below the carpet’s surface, and it builds up. You need the professionals to extract the dirt and debris that builds up, even with routinely vacuuming, it will take longer but eventually builds up. The indoor air can be improved between routine vacuuming and regularly scheduled professional cleaning. For those that suffer from frequent asthma or allergies, they can find some relief when the dust and allergens are removed that improves the indoor air quality.
