Taking Care of Your Carpet

carpet careThere are many ways in which you can concentrate on the cleaning of your carpets and floors. They are supposed to be the major investments in your house. Cleaning your carpet regularly is a great way to improve on the condition of your house.

You should vacuum the carpet regularly especially once a week if your house is located just on the main road because of the high pollution that enters your house. Dirty carpet makes the rooms look more gloomy and dull. Dirt gets into the corners of the carpet and scratches or cuts them down and it loses its newness. You must place walk off mats at the entrance of every door so that when people enter they leave maximum dirt outside the house. If placed at proper places it helps to keep your carpet clean. You must make sure that whatever foods and beverages you have must be kept off the carpet. If they accidentally spill on it especially for sticky drinks like soda, milk, juices then it becomes very difficult to get rid of them. In case this happens, you must immediately dilute the spills with plain water, then take a clean towel and try soaking the entire liquid completely so that no traces of it is left. If this is especially not taken care off then it tends to give out an unpleasant odor that is very difficult to remove.

If you see that the carpet has started to wear out then you should make sure that you immediately take care of it and get it repaired. You must also get your carpet cleaned once by a professional. Professionals advice to give it a hot water soaks without any detergent. Any pinch of detergent left behind acts like a dirt magnet and attracts more dirt. Rust spots can be removed with the help of vinegar which must be kept on the spot at least for 30 minutes. Then you must wash and dry it completely.
