Benefits of Vacuuming for Your Carpets

There’s nothing more important than vacuuming for maintaining beautiful, long-lasting carpet. That’s because dry soil is abrasive and can actually damage carpet fibers, causing accelerated wear and tear. In addition to causing a poor, dingy appearance, this wear will also diminish the effective of any strain-resistant protective coating. You should vacuum at least once a week, doing so more frequently for every person living in your household. A vacuum with a beater bar will give you the best results. Remember, too, that vacuum bags should be changed when they’re ⅔ full so they don’t lose effectiveness.

Carpet & Fabric Protection

A fabric protector is the perfect solution for protecting your carpets and upholstery from soil and stains. It also helps to extend the life of your carpets and upholstery by making the removal of dirt easier and by helping restore stain blocking performance for easier food and spot removal.

Professional Cleaning

Periodically, have your carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned. Most carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction cleaning as a warranty requirement. Do not use do-it-yourself wet shampooing or dry cleaning methods on carpets. They can leave a soap residue, which actually attracts and hold dirt.

Spot Removal

When removing spots, always pre-test the spot remover you plan to use on a hidden area of your carpet or fabric. Do this by applying a small amount and then blotting it with a clean white cloth. If any color appears on the white cloth, or you see a change in color on the fabric, do not use the spot remover. After pre-testing shows that the spot remover is safe to use, apply it to your cloth and blot it on the spot you want removed. Repeat until the spot is gone. Next, rinse the area by wetting the cloth with water and blotting it onto the area. Hot water will help with this process. Finally, take a clean, dry cloth and blot the area dry.
