Keeping your home healthy starts with clean carpets. Nobody understands that better than the carpet cleaning experts at your local Chem-Dry!
Professional carpet cleaning plays a big role in maintaining health carpets. But as a homeowner, it’s also important to regularly vacuum and care for carpeting in your home.
Wondering how to keep your carpets cleaner and healthier? Below are some carpet care tips from our experts that you can use between professional cleanings.
Understanding the best way to clean carpets will help you save time and money. Not only will you save time by doing the job right the first time, but you’ll also lessen the risk of damage to your carpets.
When it comes to carpet care tips, homeowners can turn to the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI). The CRI is dedicated to helping you keep your carpets clean, healthy, and in good condition for as long as possible.
Below are three simple steps from the CRI that you can take to maintain your carpets between cleanings:
Vacuum regularly at the right frequency with a CRI Seal of Approval certified vacuum.
Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to re-soil more quickly.
Professionally deep clean your carpets at least every 12 to 18 months to remove deep-down, embedded dirt and grime. For premium cleaning benefits, ask about our 6-month cleaning programs.
To help consumers make informed decisions, The Carpet & Rug Institute also scientifically measures cleaning efficacy. The CRI awards its seal of approval to products and equipment that effectively remove soil without damaging the carpet.
Looking for this seal of approval will not only ensure that you choose methods that will keep your carpet looking great, but also help meet the warranty requirements of most carpet manufacturers.
Preventing dirt and grime from getting on the carpet to begin with goes a long way in helping to keep your carpets clean. These helpful hints can stop dirt at the door:
Use mats: Outdoor and indoor mats or runners can reduce the amount of dirt that enters and spreads in the house.
Take off your shoes: You can prevent added wear and tear on carpet by asking everyone to remove their shoes before entering your home.
Change your air filters: Regularly change the air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended in the manufacturer’s directions. The more efficiently an air filter can remove dust and particles from the air, the less there will be to fall on carpets and other surfaces in your home.
