Over time your carpets and rugs appearance deteriorates and becomes less attractive. This is due to abrasive soils becoming imbedded in your carpet or rug, which can cause damage to the fibers and reduce the carpet or rug’s life.
Therefore, vacuum frequently and thoroughly. Most wear is caused by dirt. Oily soils attract more oily soil and frequent vacuuming will reduce soil buildup. Vacuum high-traffic areas daily, less-traveled areas at least twice a week.
Institute a no-dirt policy. A no-shoes rule is always effective, but can be difficult to implement. However, you should definitely make sure there are doormats at each entrance to your home. Clean the mats regularly so they don’t become sources of soil themselves.
If furniture rests on the carpet, be sure it gets moved occasionally and use coasters under the furniture’s legs.
Address stains quickly: the longer a stain chemically reacts with the carpet or rug the harder it will be to remove it. Common stains usually don’t require any liquid cleaners stronger than water. Use as little water as possible and blot them clean instead of rubbing or brushing.
Bring professional cleaners in regularly. The commercial grade equipment gets the deeply imbedded dirt out and will make your carpet last longer. The frequency of commercial cleaning will vary based on living conditions. However, for homes with children or active families, it is a good practice to have them cleaned at least once a year.
