Carpets and rugs instantly elevate the decor of a house. An expert says that clean off the stains, keep moisture away from them and store them well to keep your carpet and rugs clean and long-lasting. Here are some basic carpet cleaning tips from professionals at Monster Steamer.
Regular vacuuming helps you to keep the carpet clean. Loop carpets are more delicate and you should vacuum them without a brush. Do not pull if some loose threads come over the surface, cut with scissors. To extend the life of your carpet, vacuum entrance areas and high-traffic areas twice a week and the rest of the carpeting at least weekly. Oily soils attract oily soils, and frequent vacuuming will reduce soil buildup.
In case you drop something or spillage happens on the carpet then absorb it immediately with a blotting paper or paper towel. Press the spot from the sides for maximum removal and minimum absorption in pile. Clean remaining spots, if any, using solvent or spirit.
If you get to a clean stain immediately, there is a 99 percent chance you can remove it. The longer a stain reacts chemically with the carpeting, the harder it is to remove. On tough spots, contact professional carpet cleaner.
Do not try washing at home. If you try to wash your carpet, you will likely damage it. Therefore, contact the professional for the washing. They know the correct procedure and formula to wash the carpet gently.
Avoid dust, dirt, and moisture:
If the backing and pad get wet, it is very difficult to dry them. Wet carpet leads to mold and mildew growth. Wet wool starts rotting and produces a bad odor. Damp carpet starts attracting dust, dirt, and soil. As a result, it will create health problems for you and your family.
If you predict any moisture, dry the carpet in the sun or ensure proper ventilation.
Store in a dry and well-ventilated area. Do not fold your rug; keep it rolled with a few pouches of silica gel to absorb any residual moisture. This helps to prolong the life of rugs and carpet.
