We have to admit that carpet cleaning is something not too many people think about. As a matter of fact, a lot of folks only realize their carpets need attention when they are having a family get-together. This may be only true, of course, only for single men! However, it’s really important to make it a habit to clean your carpets regularly. Now, don’t think it’s necessary to clean your carpets every single month because it isn’t. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to vacuum thoroughly each week. If vacuuming regularly isn’t something you do, then you need to begin – for your health and the cleanliness of your carpets.
No matter what kind of carpet you have, always vacuum very thoroughly before doing any carpet cleaning such as shampooing. If you want to care for your carpet properly, this is the first, most basic step you must take. You will only cause your carpet to be in worse shape when you finish if you don’t take the time to vacuum before you shampoo. The process that shampooers follow to clean your carpet are the reason not vacuuming can cause problems.
The liquid used in your rug shampooer will dissolve this dirt. Some of it will be sucked up with the shampoo, but not all of it. The dissolved dirt, that you won’t get with your shampooer, will dry deep in the pile of your carpet.
Probably one of the biggest headaches related to carpet cleaning is finding a solution for urine-based pet stains. Fast action is the key to successful removal of pet stains to prevent the urine from soaking the carpet fibers and drying. There may be times, however, when your pet has an ‘accident’ on your carpet and you aren’t home to deal with it in a timely manner. The enzyme-based products on the market, designed for removing pet stains and odor, are the ones that people usually prefer and are the most effective. There is a very effective home-remedy you can find online that uses baking soda and peroxide.
Your lifestyle, and who lives in your home, will be determined how to best maintain your floors and how often to clean your rugs. You will have a bigger cleaning job, and will have to clean more often, if your household includes pets such as birds, dogs, or cats. Dander is the problem we run into when we have pets. They all have it, and they leave it everywhere. Allergies can be severely aggravated by the dander that is a part of the coats and feathers of household pets. This dander is similar to dust. With pets, it’s necessary to do things a little differently when you clean your rugs. You can start by vacuuming more often, and it is important to get as much dander as you can. Normally, we recommend vacuuming once a week but, with pets, you may be required to vacuum twice a week or more.
Don’t forget that your consistent cleaning of your carpets could prevent allergic reactions in yourself and others. It’s simple. Vacuum frequently and shampoo regularly. So, set up your schedule, and your health and respiratory system will benefit, as well as your carpets.
