Carpet Cleaning Guidelines

Do you want to put a good carpet cleaning program into place? The first step is to take a good look at the equipment you use to clean your carpets. As an example, you can’t do a good job of cleaning your carpets if your vacuum cleaner isn’t up to the task. Our recommendation is to research and buy a quality vacuum cleaner with a powerful engine. Some very high-end vacuums, such as Kirby vacuums, can cost over a thousand dollars and even several thousand.


It would be nice if we could all afford to pay that kind of price for our vacuum cleaners; however, most of us will be better off if we buy one of the reasonably priced high-quality vacuum cleaners available on the market today.

The following prevention idea is great for preventing premature wear and tear on your carpets and helps them stay clean longer. Place carpet runners in the areas of your home that get the most traffic. You’re probably familiar with this type of small rugs that are usually rectangle-shaped and come in different widths, patterns, and colors. Figure out where you need them and then buy runners of the appropriate length. Because the runner will wear out, and not your carpet, this idea is one of the best to protect your carpet from premature wear down in high-traffic areas. Do you already see signs of wear and tear in the heavy traffic areas of your carpet? This may occur in your halls and around the front door. Since this is a good way to protect your main carpet, you should seriously consider using carpet runners.

Dealing With Stains

Urine stains from house pets are one of the most challenging cleaning problems that occur. Fast action is the key to the 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. It’s not hard to find products that are effective in cleaning up pet stains and the ones that have proved the most popular are those that are enzyme-based. On the internet are some good home remedies and the one that a lot of people like uses peroxide and baking soda.

Carpets deserve good care; however, many people don’t think carpet care is a serious matter. The cleanliness of your carpets can impact your overall health, so they should be kept clean. Maybe at times you look at it and deem it looks all right and then forget about running the vacuum cleaner. That is actually not the best approach because you do not see just about any of the dirt that is laying on or on your carpet. People in general have a habit of judging things by how they look. If our carpets don’t appear to be dirty, we simply decide to skip the vacuuming. Keep to your schedule of vacuuming once or twice a week even if, at first glance, your carpet appears to be clean.

Protect yourself and your friends and family from allergies by keeping to a regular carpet cleaning schedule. When you are tempted to skip vacuuming, keep this fact in mind. It’s really a no-brainer. You set up a simple schedule for vacuuming and shampooing and you stick to it. You can safeguard your health, and prolong the life of your carpets, if you maintain good carpet cleaning maintenance procedures.
