Nothing looks better than a fresh clean carpet. And nothing looks worse than an old, dirty one! So the big question on any carpet owner’s mind is, how do I keep my carpet looking fresh and clean for as long as possible?
We compiled a list of the best ways to keep your carpet clean. If you do these things, you’re guaranteed to drastically improve the life of your carpet and keep it looking and smelling clean for much much longer.
So without further ado, let’s jump into it with 4 ways to keep your carpet clean.
Ditch the Shoes
We know this is an inconvenience at first but please hear us out. There is nothing worse for your floor than your shoes. The outside floor is filthy and tracking dirt onto a new floor will cause its to deteriorate rapidly.
Shoes also have a much harder, more abrasive surface than slippers, and definitely more than bare feet. If you make it a habit to take your shoes off at the door and encourage guests to do so as well, you will immediately see how much easier it is to clean your floor and how much cleaner it looks.
Take Care of Stains Right Away
Stains are the curse of carpets, but they can be dealt with. If you want to keep your carpet looking fresh, any and all stains need to be handled as soon as possible. The longer it stays there, the deeper it will seep into that carpet. It won’t be long then until the stain is permanent.
You want to vacuum your carpet pretty regularly to keep it as dirt-free as possible. Just vacuuming a little bit every night will help keep your floors looking constantly fresh and clean. You can also add baking soda to the floor before you vacuum to help it smell better too.
Deep Clean at Least Twice a Year
Deep cleaning your carpet is part of regular maintenance. If you want it to last a while, you have to do it at least twice a year. It’s much better for you to schedule it in and prepare for it than to wait as long as you can before the carpet’s practically destroyed.
Having a carpet can be very nice for your home, but it requires maintenance. Be sure to put in the work necessary to keep it looking good. Not only will your home look nice, it will also keep the value of your home high.
