Tips on how to clean your carpet and keep it looking wonderful!

Carpets make up so much of the atmosphere of your home, so it’s important to keep them looking and smelling fresh. Cleaning your carpet in an efficient way means it will last longer and feel newer. Here at Tech Flooring, we want to help you keep your carpet looking great so we’ve compiled these tips on how to clean your carpet.

Sort the room out first

 Before you start cleaning it’s important to make sure the room is ready and the carpet is clear. Often if you’re in a hurry it’s easy to hoover around furniture instead of fully under it but this can cause an uneven finish on your carpet and mean parts of it stay dirty. To ensure your carpet is properly cleaned, move the furniture off the carpet. Another tip is to open the windows and ventilate the room first, giving surface level dust the chance to leave.

Keeping your carpet clean is important

Blot don’t scrub!

This is an important tip for effectively removing carpet stains. Blotting instead of scrubbing helps remove the stain without pushing it further into the carpet. Place a kitchen cloth in the centre of the stain and soak it up. Then, carefully dry/blot with another cloth working from the outside in. Rinse thoroughly with hot water and blot again. Remember- scrubbing can ruin your carpet fibres. Blotting a stain away helps keep your carpet fresh.

Deep clean twice a year

Making sure your carpets stay clean and fresh is super important. It’s a good idea to give them a deep cleaning at least twice a year. You can do it yourself over the weekend by renting a carpet cleaner or, if you prefer, you can hire professionals to handle it for you. And hey, if you’re also looking for awesome people to help with your carpets, we’re here for you!

Hoover effectively

To make sure your hoover is working at its best, replace the hoover bag and filter regularly. This means your hoover is ready to tackle your carpet and won’t be too full to take in dust and dirt. This may seem obvious but checking your hoover is on the right setting for carpet is really important. If your hoover is on a hardwood floor setting it can actually end up damaging your carpet by being too forceful. Vacuuming at least once a week is a must to keep your carpet looking fresh.

Using a lint roller is a great way to pick up crumbs and surface level dirt before going in with your hoover.

Watch out for shoes

It is surprising how much damage shoes can cause to carpets. Leaving shoes on when walking across carpeted areas can track mud, dirt and leaves into the carpet. The shoes themselves can press and wear down carpets as well. Taking your shoes off at the door means your carpets can be lower maintenance and last for longer.

By following these helpful tips, your carpet can maintain that brand-new look for years! Considering a new carpet installation? Connect with us today at Tech Flooring to request a sample for your home or to obtain a complimentary quote.
