Keep Your Carpet Beautiful with These Six Tips

Why is it important to keep your carpet clean? 

A clean carpet is a significant factor in determining how liveable your space is. Aside from being one of the most reliable ways to protect flooring, carpets can instantly add more life and vibrancy to a room. Decorative or practical, carpets are a common sight in a lot of households and establishments. However, they’re also one of the dirtiest. 

It is important therefore to keep your carpet clean and ensure that it is free of dirt, dust, bacteria and mites; as well as prolong the lifespan of your carpet in general and prevent any damages. 

Here are six ways to keep your carpet looking spick and span:
 
1. Vacuum regularly
Investing in a good vacuum that can be used at least once a week in high traffic areas in your home will establish a well-kept carpet. A good vacuum will be able to pull out any grime, bacteria, dust and abrasive particles that may have gotten indoors and lodged in your carpet.  Vacuuming regularly will enable a cleaner, more hygienic environment and help prevent sicknesses or dust induced fevers or sinus problems. Equipping proper vacuuming techniques is a major part of this, as ensuring you take your time with it, manoeuvring the vacuum in a criss-cross manner will give you the best results. Additionally, sprinkling baking soda on your carpet pre-vacuuming will help absorb odours and help keep your carpet looking and smelling fresh.

  1. No shoe indoors policy
    It's no secret that shoes bring in a whole lot of dirt and grime into the house. Especially in carpeted rooms where the dirt then gets lodged and continues to deteriorate the condition of the carpet. Investing in a good doormat and ensuring that you rub off your shoes thoroughly before entering the house will minimise the dust and dirt that comes in with you, however a better way to eliminate dirt and grime from shoes fully is to establish a shone indoor policy- requiring those who live there as well as guests to take off their shoes at the entrance to minimize any dirt entering the home at all.

    3.Treat stains immediately
    It is important to treat stains right away before they get a chance to seep into your carpet.
    Some basics include- blotting, with a clean paper towel or cloth, the stain. Letting the cloth or paper absorb the moisture (Do not scrub as it will only spread the stain further). White vinegar and bi-carb soda also remove stains and is an easy, accessible alternative to carpet cleaning solutions.
