You have probably experienced the following scenario: You just installed your beautiful white carpeting yesterday. Unfortunately, it rained recently and your dog tracked mud all over your new carpeting. Now, your brand new white carpet looks old and will never look the same.
This can be a harrowing experience for any homeowner. Luckily, with a little foresight, you can keep for carpeting looking brand new for years, if not decades.
Most homeowners believe that the day their residential carpeting is cleanest is the day it is installed. However, with a few precautions, homeowners could keep their carpets looking fresh and clean year-round. It is simply a matter of knowing what conditions lead to a stained carpet, and how to reduce the impact of stains when they occur.
Ensure Your Children and Pets Are Clean
Once spring starts, your children and pets will be spending most of their time outdoors. While this is great for their personal mental and physical development, it may not be so great for your residential carpeting. Mud and grime can be tracked through your house and on your carpets, leaving them looking unsightly and messy. The last thing you need is extra work, especially with a fixture as hard to clean as carpeting.
By putting a nylon mat at each door, you can ensure your children will wipe their feet and take off their shoes before entering the house. You can wipe your pet’s feet as well, since pets do not follow directions as well as children. This simple step will ensure your bright carpets remain looking fabulous, regardless of the weather outside.
Clean Your Carpets When They Are Soiled
This tip is paramount when reducing the amount of dirt and discoloration your residential carpeting receives after being soiled. Nothing looks worse when your bright white carpets become brown with dirt streaks! It can really look out of place when you consider how your carpeting will look against the pristine condition of your furniture and walls. A dirty carpet can make your whole interior design look bad.
Although carpet tiles are easier to clean, since they can be removed and scrubbed with more pressure, all residential and commercial carpeting can be cleaned.
First, you should sweep your carpets to remove any loose dirt. Then, vacuum your carpets to remove any dirt you were not able to remove with your broom. After you have sufficiently vacuumed your carpets, use carpet stain cleaner as directed, to clean your carpets. Any carpeting supplier has cleaner in stock and you should inquire with them for the best products for your carpet cleaning needs.
Use Carpet Tiles to Ensure Cleanliness Year Round
Although not all homeowners use carpet tiles, since they are relatively new, others do. However, while they may be newer than traditional commercial or residential carpeting, carpet tiles do have one main advantage. They can be installed, removed, and replaced quite easily. This is a great benefit for homeowners who desire to keep their carpets clean year-round, regardless of the weather outside.
If, unfortunately, your carpets become stained, each individual carpet tile that is stained can be replaced. If you are interested, first and foremost, on keeping your carpets clean, consider purchasing carpet tiles today.
