Carpet cleaning is a subject that is often overlooked in order to ensure a good looking and comfortable home. With a new tenant moving in every few months, the chances of dust and dirt settling on the carpet is high.
Cleaning your carpet once or twice a year will ensure that it looks great and stays that way. Most people tend to forget about cleaning their carpets until they see small patches of dirt around their carpet in areas where a vacuum can’t reach. These can be relatively small and as long as you take care of the problem they should disappear.
The biggest thing you need to remember is to think about the source of the dirt. Is it a dog that has been running around in the house all day? Is it a friend who leaves pet food out after eating it?
Whatever the reason is for the dirt, the best way to know if it’s caused by the carpet or something else is to look at the texture of the soil. Dirt that’s hard or gritty on the carpet will cause it to be easier to clean and get out. Dirt that’s soft and squishy on the carpet will create a hard mess that will have a hard time getting off.
Cleaning your carpet with an ultrasonic cleaner is one of the simplest and most simple steps you can take to keep it clean. It’s best to use an ultrasonic cleaner that uses power and not one that uses water to clean your carpet. Water only cleans the top layer of soil, and often times with a powerful machine it can leave behind nasty residue.
If you aren’t sure how to use an ultrasonic cleaner, just remember that you simply run it over the carpet and let it do its job. Make sure you don’t leave it on the carpet too long because this can cause damage.
Before you clean your carpet, make sure you have a clean vacuum cleaner that doesn’t make a mess on the carpet. This is a sure fire way to get dirt, leaves, and even pet hair into the carpet.
You can’t go wrong with carpet cleaning, it’s a fairly simple process and the results are well worth the money. Hopefully these tips will help you keep your carpet looking new, smelling good, and ready to be enjoyed for years to come.
