How to Properly Maintain Your Carpeted Floors


Carpets are a BIG investment, so keeping them clean and ensuring they last as long as possible is a huge concern for many people. 

Preserving out carpets though is often the last thing on our minds when it comes to everyday life, kids, pets, family gatherings; carpets get put on the backburner, and rightfully so. 

But there are many ways to properly maintain your carpets that won’t impede on your life. For starters, let’s start with the basics, the best way to keep your carpet looking fresh and clean is to vacuum it often, and not just a quick, two-minute vacuum but take your time and be thorough. The trick is to slow down a bit when you vacuum higher traffic areas. Trying to vacuum too fast will not pick up enough dirt, and things will get left behind. This will save you time and money by not having to spend money on a deep clean every few months.

While a deep clean is advised at least once a year, maintaining in between is important. 

Another trick to keep your carpets clean longer is to take off your shoes whenever you enter your home. If you must wear your shoes inside the house, think instead to wear socks or slippers. Do not wear house shoes outside dragging in extra dirt from the outside that seeps into your carpet and lives beneath the surface. It is not a good idea to let dirt get on your carpet. 

Keeping your carpet clean is crucial to preserving its beauty. Having an active lifestyle and family often means that our carpets are more likely to get dirty, and that’s okay. 

Regardless of your family’s lifestyle, there are small things you can do to prevent huge mishaps and keep your carpets looking good.
