Keep Your Carpets Clean and Neat
Having carpeted floors is one of the trendiest floor decorating ideas. And it is becoming more and more popular due to the large number of benefits they have. But maintaining those floors can be a tricky task if you don’t know exactly what to do. Check out below to see what are the tips you should follow to keep your carets as good as new every day.
Keep Your Shoes Off Your Carpet
One of the very easy things you can do at home to keep your floors clean is keeping the shoes away from them. This mean you will have to take them off when you are walking on the carpet floors. You can easily practice this habit by having a shoe rack at the entrance to the house so everyone can store their shoes without making a mess in the living room. This practice will ensure that no additional dirt, mud or dust will get on the carpet or stain it.
Vacuuming is one of the easiest ways to give your carpets a good clean. Vacuuming make sure to remove not only the sort and dust that has collected but also can remove small rocks or grit. If you have kids who tend to get their feet very dirty when they are running about and having fun or pets that shed a lot of hair, try vacuuming at least twice a week to keep them free of any dirt. If not, you can try cleaning them once a week.
This is another cleaning method you should try if you want to keep your floors squeaky clean. At least once a year, get your carpets steam cleaned by one of the professional carpet cleaners. This method is a lot more thorough than vacuuming as it penetrates deep into the fibres and deep clean them. Steam cleaning is one of the most effective ways to preserve the good quality of a carpet.
We know that colour matter a lot when picking items to a home. This goes out for carpets too. If you have kids or pets at home, picking a shade that is white or close to it is not the best choice to make. Stay away from lighter shades that can get dirty soon and instead choose colours that can last a good few day without being dirty and decolouring. Don’t go for jet black either because that too tend to show dirt like animal hair. So instead pick a more neutral colour that is subtler.
Rugs and Mats
If you are worried about the condition of your flooring and is worried about n0t being able to clean them as often as you should, you can always use a rug or a mat over it. Especially in the parts of your room where there is high traffic or where you move around/ keep your feet a lot, a mat or a rug will be a worthy investment. For example, around a couch in the living room or doorways a mat or a rug can be placed to save the flooring materials from wear and tear.
Good maintenance is a great way to add more years to any product. So, follow these tips and watch your flooring stay good and new for an extra couple of years.
