Caring For Your Home Smart Carpet
Having brand new carpeting put in your home by Smart Carpet or a similar company is a major investment, whether it is the entire house or just one room. Without a doubt, you would like to do everything possible to have your carpet last for many years to come and look fantastic for your family, friends, and guests who come to visit you. Even if you purchase the very best carpet available, however, it will begin to wear down the day after it is installed and eventually will get stained and worn. But there are several simple ways that you can prevent your new flooring from becoming stained, worn down, and otherwise damaged before it has to.
Taking care of your carpet and vacuuming it on a regular basis is an easy – and extremely effective – way to keep it looking great. Smart Carpet recommends that you vacuum over the high traffic parts of your home every day; those would include doorways, hallways, and any entrances to a porch or garage. The carpet in other sections of the home can be properly maintained if it is vacuumed at least once a week, though vacuuming twice a week when you notice dirt buildup is never a bad idea. Today’s vacuums are designed to bring nearly 100% of the dirt and debris trapped in carpet fibers up and out of the flooring, so consider investing in one of these advanced models.
One of the saddest ways that Smart Carpet gets damaged is through accidental food spills that leave permanent stains. You can do a few simple things, however, to help you always be prepared to handle spills quickly so that they do not turn into stains but are instead lifted out of the carpet right away. The best line of defense for stains is a good offense, which means purchasing a spot removal cleaner or preparing your own using basic home cleaning solutions and keeping it in an easy to find place so it can be used on spills immediately.
Preventing stains and dirt buildup is even more efficient than vacuuming and smart stain removal when it comes to maintaining your carpet. All you need to do is put doormats at every entrance to the house so that dirty shoes can be wiped off and removed before entering the home; carpet runners will protect hallway carpets too.
New flooring from Smart Carpet and other installers updates the style of your home and also increases its worth. Cleaning your carpeting on a regular basis, treating spills quickly, and preventing dirt buildup will keep it looking great.
