If you have carpeted flooring in your home, you’re probably also aware how quickly it can get dingy and dirty. Your carpet flooring’s longevity depends a lot on the cleaning methods that you apply on a daily basis which would require doing a lot more than just keeping it looking at its best.
Here are some of the ways to help your carpet look clean for a long time:
Put doormats near every entrance of your home
A good way for protecting your carpet flooring is to ensure that a doormat is placed at every entrance of your home which can be used by both you and your guests to wipe their shoes before walking in. This is a good idea especially for the winter months when snow or slush can make your floor messy.
Clean up the stains right away
Make it a point to clean up any spills or food and pet stains right away, as any delay will make it harder to clean them up later and can even be very damaging to your carpet.
Develop a habit to take your shoes off inside
Form a habit to always take your shoes off when you walk in so that you don’t bring in the debris and dirt from outside.
Make sure that you vacuum clean your carpet frequently, preferably twice a week. Frequency apart, the way you vacuum also matters: pay more attention to vacuum clean those spots that receive higher foot traffic and do it in all directions to remove most of the debris and dirt.
Do the cleaning properly
Apart from cleaning up stains and vacuuming, you can clean your carpet in other ways too. You can use household items like vinegar, baking soda, rubbing alcohol, etc for cleaning your carpet and make it mold-free.
Get your carpet cleaned by a professional annually
To increase the longevity of your carpet by keeping it clean and damage free, get it cleaned by a professional on an annual basis
