At Zerorez carpet cleaning we know that most people think their carpets and floors get the dirtiest in the winter time, when snow, water and mud get tracked into their homes. In reality, summer time can be just as hard on flooring because it’s the season for outdoor activities and what goes out must come in. Dirt, sand, water and more are carried in on flip-flops, sandals, sneakers and paws all summer long. If you’d like to keep your carpets cleaner this summer, here are 5 tips you can use:
1 – Take Your Shoes Off
Ask your family and friends to remove their shoes when they come into your home through any door. Though at first they may think you’re being overly fussy and they’ll grumble about it, they’ll get used to the idea and soon won’t even need to be reminded. If you make it easier for them by providing a stool to sit on while they’re taking their shoes off or a shelf for storing their shoes, they’ll grumble even less. If you don’t want to demand that people take their shoes off, you don’t have to be strict; but if just half of the people who come into your home take their shoes off, you’ll see a significant reduction in the amount of dirt in your carpeting and on your floors.
2 – Put Down Area Rugs
Area rugs aren’t just for bare floors. You can lay rugs on top of your wall-to-wall carpeting in high-traffic areas and put doormats in front of doors, especially when the weather’s bad and you expect mud or water to be tracked in. In addition to absorbing dirt, doormats can also be a reminder to your visitors to remove their shoes.
3 – Vacuum Regularly
Sure, vacuuming isn’t fun, but it can extend the life of your carpeting. Vacuuming gets up all of the loose dirt, grit and gravel that acts as an abrasive on the fibers of your carpets. Vacuuming once a week is a good rule of thumb; and if your carpeting seems smellier than usual, sprinkle a little baking soda first to absorb odors.
4 – Stay Outside
It’s summertime and that means lots of sunshine, sports and cookouts that should keep you out of your house and off your carpeting. At Zerorez carpet cleaning in Henderson, NV, we know that preventing problems with your carpeting is a lot easier than trying to fix them. Staying outside not only decreases the amount of shoe-borne dirt and debris on your carpeting, it also reduces the amount of food and drink spills when you eat meals out of doors.
5 – Hire A Pro for Your Carpet Cleaning in Henderson NV
Though you can rent or even buy a carpet cleaning machine, you run the risk of damaging your carpeting with too many harsh chemicals or too much water. Your best bet is to hire a professional carpet cleaning company that knows the right way to take care of all of your flooring. Twice-a-year cleanings will keep your carpeting looking like new.
