Carpet Cleaning Tips to Keep Their Beauty

Most people want their carpets to last long and look good throughout their home. In order to achieve this, you should take certain steps to ensure that your carpet looks good even after years and years of wear and tear. In order to extend the life of your carpet follow a few of these simple carpet cleaning tips.

Regular vacuuming is the most important thing to do if you want your carpet cleaner. Contrary to popular belief, regular vacuuming will extend and not decrease the life of your carpet. Friction caused by embedded dust and grime is responsible for breaking down the fibers in your carpet and for carpets losing their color and sheen. Vacuum your carpet at least every other day to keep it clean from carpet killing dust.

One of the largest investments you make inside your home is what you choose for your flooring. The most common choice as a floor covering is carpeting and the reasons for their popularity are both practical and aesthetic. Unlike other types of flooring, carpet is a natural insulator, providing warmth in winter and keeping cool air trapped during summer months. It reduces the noise level by eliminating or muffling the clatter of different sounds. It is also soft underfoot, providing a comfortable walking surface and reducing fatigue.
The beauty of carpet is evident in the overwhelming selection of styles, patterns and colours in which it is offered. Before choosing a particular style you should consider how much use the areas to be carpeted will receive and whether you will be able to keep the carpet cleaner. It is always best to balance the elegance of your carpets with the areas they are to be used. Entrance-ways, halls and stairways should have carpets that will not show wear and tear because these areas are usually subject to heavy traffic and the carpet cleaning is generally more difficult. Rooms which are favorite play areas for children, such as family rooms, also take a lot of punishment, so make sure durability is a consideration.

Friction caused by embedded dust and grime is responsible for breaking down the fibers in your carpet and for carpets losing their color and sheen. Vacuum your carpet at least every other day to keep it clean from carpet killing dust.
Another major enemy of carpets and their life are moisture and stains. Apart from having carpet cleaning products for all kinds of stains on hand, it is important to get your carpet coated with an anti stain finish like Scotchgard. While this does not mean that your carpet will become stain proof, it will definitely become stain resistant. Any extra protection that you add to your carpet can only make it easier to keep your carpet cleaner.
Wear and tear is another issue that you need to tackle, especially for high quality carpets. Generally, carpets get worn out at certain places while other areas keep looking like new. If we are looking at wall to wall carpeting, then you should consider using area rugs or entrance mats at high traffic places like corridors, in front of doors and near tables to save your carpet from getting worn out. This will prolong the life of your carpet for many years.
The use of carpet padding is extremely important to save your carpet from uneven wear and tear. Put plastic foam carpet padding under all your area rugs and carpets to ensure that they get evenly worn out. Another thing that you should make it a point to do is to rotate the furniture that is kept on your carpet regularly so that your carpet does not get permanently depressed at certain places where furniture has been placed for a long time.
Apart from cleaning your carpet at home by vacuuming, you should also get them professionally cleaned at least once a year. This will help in taking out embedded dust particles from carpet fibers, bringing back its sheen and give it a soft hand. After getting your carpets cleaned, get them coated with carpet protection finish.

Thoroughly vacuum your carpet once a week with a good quality vacuum cleaner. Frequent vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet by preventing a buildup of gritty particles that can cut carpet fibers. Use a rental cleaner recommended by the carpet manufacturer or have it professionally cleaned. If you choose a wet extraction method, make sure the carpet dries completely within 24 hours to prevent mold or mildew growth in the carpet or padding and to stop moisture from damaging the floor underneath.

Dilute coffee spills right away using cool water then blot with clean rags or paper towels. If stain is not removed after drying, spray on glass cleaner. Soak the part with spill, wait for 5 minutes and then blot. Glass cleaner can clean upholstery and carpeting without soapy residues, unlike traditional carpet cleansers.

To clean fast the vinyl seats, wipe them using baking soda with a damp rag. Rinse well with clean water and dishwashing cleanser. For vinyl, it is gentler to apply baking soda instead of oil-based detergent which only hardens the vinyl.

Hairspray lifts out stain from pen ink. If you have this kind of stain on upholstery and carpet, just simply use hairspray. Salt has also the same cleaning effect. Let it sit until stain gets absorbed and then brush it off. Do the same procedure as needed.

To deal with upholstery and carpet stains, use a gallon of warm water, dish washing detergent, and white vinegar. Get a brush with hard bristle to stir the mixture completely on the carpet fibers. Allow it to sit for half an hour. Blot the stain with dry, white towel or thick porous rags. Similarly, this procedure is effective for pet urine and stains.

To cheer up the faded carpet, first is to vacuum it and use a sponge mop in applying mixture of clear ammonia to one pint of liquid water. Evaluate the mixture by testing it on hidden parts. For caution, never use ammonia if your carpets are made of wool.

If carpet has a foul smell, you can generously sprinkle team borax. Allow it to remain untouched within an hour prior to vacuuming the unpleasant odour and dirt. If you travel with your dog pet, it makes you happy to learn that the next borax application kills fleas, including their eggs.
Are the edges of your carpet beginning to fray? Paint the carpet edges and layers using liquid resin. They can be purchased from fabric and craft shops to keep the fibers in right place.

Before carpets appear to be worn out, they need to be vacuumed as you would to a home carpet. It restores the fibers quality and counteracts the dirt effects pounded on it. If the condition is not good, it is better to rent a machine cleaner available in the shops. When using this machine, be sure to remove the water when you are finished. To step on carpets that are wet only damages the sensitive fibers.

To spray a combination of 1 part of fabric softener and 4 parts of water on carpet will reduce the static state of the carpet. It removes the light shock which happens when touching metal objects.
To keep your car mats like brand new ones, wax and polish them with shoe wax. Also, it makes your mats a lot easier to rinse.

Your carís carpet is probably one of the most unclean parts of your car. Just consider the amount of dirt, dust, and grime each time you get into the car and step on the carpet. This is true especially during rainy and winter season. The good thing is car carpets are very easy to clean with the above tips.

I agree that keeping a carpet clean will extend it's life. I actually vacuum almost everyday. I think allot will depend upon the actual traffic and if your household has young ones.

With people coming in and out all day long, small sand, clay and dust particles are being shipped constantly inside your home.



The small particles of dust, sand and clay settle deep inside the fibers of the carpet. Later, when someone walks on the carpet, these particles rub against each other like sand paper, severely damaging the fabric. This problem can be solved to an extent with help of vacuuming on a regular basis. Vacuuming removes allergens and pollutants from your carpet, thus creates a healthier environment for you and your family.

We recommend carpet cleaning every 6-9 months to help extend the life of the carpet. Learned it from a friend who installs carpeting for a living, that's what the manufacturer recommends.

Carpets are one of the best decors any home can have. Being the best decors, they have to be cleaned properly.

To keep them clean, a person has to vacuum their carpets regularly, when getting rid of the stains, don’t rub them but blot them.

People can also clean their carpets with steam or dry cleaning.
