Make vacuuming a habit
Vacuuming at least once a week is essential for removing dirt, dust, and pet hair from your carpet. If you have pets that shed a lot, you may need to vacuum more frequently. When vacuuming, be sure to go slowly and steadily, taking the time to suction up dirt and dust that has accumulated on your carpet. Don’t forget to pay extra attention to corners and crevices, and make sure to empty or replace your vacuum bag before it becomes full.
Act fast with spills & accidents
If a spill or accident occurs, it’s important to act quickly to prevent it from setting in. Blot up any liquids with a clean cloth or paper towel, and avoid rubbing or scrubbing the affected area. If there are any solid particles involved in the accident, scoop them up and then finish by vacuuming the area. Once you’ve done this, call a professional carpet cleaner to remove stains. We know accidents happen, but we want you to have peace of mind, so we provide carpet stain protectant.
There are a few simple things you can do to help prevent dirt and grime from getting into your carpet in the first place. Use two doormats – one outside and one inside – to trap dirt and debris before it can track into your home. You can also implement a no-shoes policy in your home, which can help to keep your carpet cleaner.
Schedule reoccurring professional carpet cleaning
Even with regular vacuuming, it’s important to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year. This will help to remove deep-seated dirt and grime that can’t be removed with a vacuum cleaner. Professional carpet cleaning can also help to restore your carpet’s color and vibrancy. Chem-Dry carpet cleaning in Fort Smith has been tested and proven to remove 98.1%* of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery.
By following these simple tips, you can help to keep your carpet looking and feeling great for years to come.
