Carpet Care Tips

1. First and foremost keep your carpet clean. Sand and dirt particles can act like hundreded of tiny razor blades that cut your carpet fibers. Damaged carpet stains more easily, and it's harder to remove the set in stains from as well. Vacuuming your carpet often to remove dirt, and your carpet will last longer.

2. Use of rugs. Put rugs outside and inside the front door, and other entryways of your home. They will catch alot of the dirt that people bring in on their feet. That will mean you will do less vacuuming and prolong your carpets life.

3. Remove shoes when entering your home. This is a great way to make your carpet last longer. If you have a nice home with nice carpet, people usually won't take offense to your use of this method.

4. Clean all stains quickly and properly. If you are using a cleaning solution other than water, apply it to a cloth first, and work it in from the outside of the stain toward the center, so you will not spread the spot. Apply the cleaner, extract (blot), rinse, extract, and repeat until you are unable to get more of the stain out. Extract solvents completely, and dry your carpet quickly once you're done. If there is any stain remaining deeper down in the carpet, quick drying will prevent it from wicking its way up to the surface.

5. Use a shop-vac. It's a great tool to help when cleaning tough stains. You can't just suck out the stain, but you can wash and rinse the area repeatedly , and suck the solution out each time. This tends to be more effective than blotting up the water with a cloth, mainly because you won't have the patience to wash, rinse and extract repeatedly if you're using paper towels or cloth.



6. Vacuum before cleaning your carpet. If you use a portable machine, at least get the water as hot as you can, and dry the carpet quickly, using fans to move the air around. You won't match the results of a professional carpet cleaning service. However, if you want to save some money, doing your own cleaning can lengthen the time between professional cleanings.
