As we’ve discussed in previous posts, it is crucial for aesthetics and health to keep your carpets clean and fresh. And, while we are always here to offer top-quality professional carpet cleaning in the Treasure Valley, there are some simple yet effective steps you can take to maintain carpets between professional carpet cleaning visits.  

Maintain Carpets by Regular Vacuuming

Vacuuming is critical to maintain carpets. Not only does it remove surface dirt and debris, but it also helps to keep your carpets looking plush and inviting. Make it a habit to vacuum high-traffic areas at least twice a week and less frequented areas once a week. This will prevent dirt from settling into the carpet fibers and prolong the life of your carpets. For our part, we use heavy-duty vacuums which pick up the dirt and debris that household models miss. 

Welcome Doormats

The humble doormat is your first line of defense against dirt and moisture. Placing doormats at entryways helps trap dirt and prevents it from being tracked onto your carpets. Encourage family members and guests to wipe their feet before entering to minimize the amount of dirt brought indoors. Another option is to ask guests to shed their footwear before entering your abode. However, not everyone is on board with such a request. 

Act Fast on Stains

Spills are inevitable, but quick action can prevent them from becoming permanent stains. And this helps maintain carpets. As soon as a spill occurs, cover the area with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb the liquid. Then, give us a call. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can cause it to spread. We were recently called on the scene when someone’s pet bled on their carpets after surgery. Wisely, the client called us to the scene, so we could take care of the stains before they set. (By the way, the pet is fine.) 

Rotate Furniture to Maintain Carpets

Heavy furniture leaves indentations on your carpets over time. To prevent this, rotate your furniture periodically to distribute the weight more evenly. You can also use furniture coasters or pads under the legs to minimize pressure on the carpet fibers and prevent damage.

Regular TLC

Show your carpets some love with regular maintenance. Using a carpet rake or brush can help to lift and fluff up flattened fibers, keeping your carpets looking fresh and revitalized. Make it a part of your weekly routine, especially in high-traffic areas where carpets tend to get more wear and tear.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your carpets looking their best between professional cleanings. And remember, if you ever need assistance or have any questions, contact Kung Fu Carpets & Cleaning Co. We are here to help you maintain clean and healthy carpets for years to come!
