3 Carpet Cleaning Tips You Should Know

There are many  carpet   cleaning  tips that you should know, but there are five tips that can help keep your  carpet  in good condition and  clean . You need to know about vacuuming, spots and spills, and how to keep the  carpet  fresh smelling.  Cleaning  a  carpet  is not just about vacuuming it. It is about when and how you need to vacuum the  carpet .

How to Vacuum  Carpets 

The  carpets  need to be vacuumed at least once a week, but even more if you have a high traffic area. This will help your  carpet  by prolonging the life of it. You need to move the vacuum slowly over the  carpet  so you can allow the vacuum  cleaner  to suck up all the deep embedded dirt particles. If your  carpet  is plush, you need to take extra time and vacuum the same area a few times before moving onto the next section. If you have some  carpet  odors, you may want to add some baking soda to the bag.

How to  Clean  Spills and Spots

 Carpet   cleaning  tips include how to clean spills and spots. There is always going to be a spill or a spot that you need to give your immediate attention. If you have a spill, carefully blot it with a white towel and then treat the spill with the appropriate treatment. Never rub the spot or it will make the spot increase in size. When you use a cleaning solvent, work from the outside in on the spot. Every spill and spot may require a different type of solution for cleaning it.

If you spill red wine on the  carpet , you need to dilute it with white wine and then cold water and apply a white towel and blot up the spill. If you have a pet urine spot, use some mild detergent with one teaspoon of vinegar in warm water. Apply the solution to the spot and allow it to dry and then vacuum. This also works well for cleaning mud spots after you scrape up the caked part of the mud.

Using a Stream  Cleaner  on  Carpets 

 Carpets  will need a deep  cleaning  over time. However, you do not want to do this very often, especially if you want your  carpet  to say newer looking. Use a mild detergent on the  carpet  and follow the directions on the stream  cleaner . First, you must vacuum the  carpet  thoroughly before deep  cleaning . After you have completed a room, make sure that you have ventilation for drying and do not walk on the wet  carpet . If you must walk on it, bare feet are recommended as long as they are clean.

Your  carpet  is expensive and you want it to stay in good condition for many years. If you take care of the  carpeting  by following these  carpeting   cleaning  tips, your  carpet  should stay  clean  and look great for many years. If you do not take care of your  carpet , it will become worn and tattered looking after a year or so.
