Beautiful carpet flooring can be one of the most inviting features in your home, especially with the proper treatment and care. Here are three ways you can keep your carpets looking and feeling splendid.
Choose your vacuum cleaner wisely.
All vacuums are not created equal. When purchasing a vacuum, review its setting features to ensure it’s designed for optimal performance for your type of carpet. If you have plush carpet, you will need a vacuum with strong suction, versus short, textured carpet fibers like Concerto, By Mohawk.
Maintain a regular care routine.
Creating and maintaining a consistent carpet care routine is essential to keeping your carpets clean and inviting. For example, if your carpet is in a low traffic area, consider vacuuming twice weekly. If your carpets are in high traffic areas, consider vacuuming 3-5 times a week. This keeps dust, dirt, and outside debris from settling into your carpet. If this happens, it’s much harder to vacuum out of your carpet and would require deep cleaning.
Deep clean your carpet.
Did you know that most carpet warranties require deep cleaning care? When purchasing your flooring, always review your warranty to become aware of your flooring’s protection. Although deep cleaning frequency can vary depending on your specific circumstances, The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends a professional cleaning of carpets every 12-18 months. Adhering to this timeline will keep your flooring fresh and clear from harmful bacteria and germs.
