Tips to take care of your Carpet Flooring daily
Hiring professional carpet and floor cleaners will ensure complete cleaning, but that is not enough. Regular care is critical to maintain the durability and look of your carpet flooring. In addition, routine maintenance will avoid discolouration and degradation.
Dirty, damp carpet flooring will end up demeaning the entire home decor. To avoid such a situation, you must take care and maintain your carpet floor regularly!
Tips for caring for and maintaining your carpet flooring:
Vacuum the loose particles of soil and dust that are impossible to remove with our bare hands from the carpet. Dirt in minuscule powdered form can cause damage to the carpet and to our health that can be irreversible.
Act fast on spills
Often, your drink/food might contain alcohol, citric acid and oil; spilling these will damage the quality of the carpet flooring. However, the restoration industry believes that if the spill is immediately cleared, the carpet floor can be saved with minor damage.
As the daylight starts beaming brightly on our carpets regularly, it causes the colours to fade.
Foot traffic and heavy furniture
The number of people walking in and out on the carpet can get the carpet muddy. Avoid unwanted dirt on your carpet flooring by simply adding doormats!
While moving heavy furniture, you should either use the help of people and carry it or place small cloth/ rubber/ wheels under your table before moving it. Do not drag your heavy furniture over your carpet directly; it can tear and ruin your carpet.
If a foul smell or food material has been deeply embedded in your carpet floor for an extended period, it can make your carpet smell bad. To eliminate the odour:
- Keep the humidity in the house in control.
- Don’t let mildew settle on your carpet.
- Keep your home properly ventilated.
