1. Deep clean your carpet as often as it is required. To have a clean carpet, you should have it cleaned by a professional or you must use a deep cleaning machine. In general, a thorough cleaning is needed every 6 months or so.
2. Keep your eye out for spills and clean them in a fast manner. Just using water on a spill will help a good number of them. If that does not work, you must expand your search. You will find a few products available that can help you eliminate spills quickly.
You can also use a mixture of water and vinegar to help you remove stains out. By taking fast action you can prevent spills from becoming stains that leave you with a dirty carpet.
3. You should vacuum your carpet frequently and make sure you do a good job. This means going over the floor in several directions to allow the vacuum to pick up all it can. First-class vacuums are the best option, because they get up the most debris.
4. You should always have entrance mats outside of your doors. Make sure that people who enter your home use the mats to get debris and dirt off of their shoes before they come in.
Approximately 80 percent of the soils that enter a home are dry. The remaining 20 percent are greases, oils, and starches. The dry soil is easily removed by vacuuming. As long as they are removed every day, it will help to minimize the damage to your carpet.
A clean carpet adds value to the home if it is maintained well. It will also help to keep the home free from odors. In addition, it will help to make a comfortable living area for your family and friends.
