After a professional carpet cleaning, there are a few things you should remember to maintain the new look of your carpet. You should vacuum your carpet at least once a week and avoid walking barefoot on it. You should also apply a carpet protectant once a year.
Vacuum once a week for each person in the home
Vacuuming is an essential step in maintaining carpet cleanliness. Depending on how much traffic a carpet receives, it may require weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly vacuuming. The frequency of vacuuming also depends on whether there are pets in the home. For example, if you live alone, you may only need to vacuum the floor once a week, while if you have a family with children, you may need to vacuum daily.
Vacuuming more often is particularly important in hotter months. Children are known to accumulate more dust and debris than adults. Vacuuming more frequently can also help protect the health of the elderly and sick people living in the home.
Vacuuming is also important for people who suffer from allergies. Dust and allergens settle in carpets and can trigger allergic reactions. People who live in homes with clean environment tend to be healthier and more active. One study conducted by the University of Indiana found that people who kept their homes clean were more likely to exercise regularly. A healthy home is also a cleaner one, which helps prevent illnesses and lower medical expenses.
Avoid walking barefoot on carpets
After professional carpet cleaning, it’s best to avoid walking barefoot on your carpet to prevent the development of stain-causing oils and dirt. The oils from your skin leave residues on the carpet that can attract dirt. Rather than walking barefoot, wear indoor slippers or socks. If you do walk barefoot, be sure to wipe up any spills as soon as possible. The longer you leave them, the more difficult they are to remove.
It’s also a good idea to keep shoes off the carpet. This can help the carpet last longer. It’s also a good idea to have shoe racks or baskets near the door to store indoor shoes. Although it’s okay to wear socks on the carpet, bare feet are more likely to cause staining. Shoes are also a source of abrasive materials that can damage carpeting.
After professional carpet cleaning, it’s best to avoid walking barefoot on the carpet for at least three days. This is to prevent the carpet from being exposed to dirt and grime. Many countries require people to take off their shoes before entering the house. In addition to this, removing your shoes will reduce the risk of the carpet getting soiled or stained.
Apply carpet protectant yearly
Using a carpet protectant after professional carpet cleaning can help to protect your carpet and prevent it from becoming soiled and prone to soiling. It can also help to repel stains and spills. The protector needs to be reapplied annually because it will wear out over time. Ideally, you should have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year.
Some cleaning professionals are skeptical about whether or not to use a carpet protectant after cleaning. However, the carpet cleaning industry has tested the effect of using a carpet protectant on carpets. Professionals applied the product to carpet samples and observed the effect on the carpet after a year. According to the study, there was no difference between the untreated and treated side of the carpet after one year.
Applying a carpet protectant is an integral part of maintaining the carpet and upholstery. Most new carpets are treated with a protectant at the factory. The protectant can help extend the life of the carpet by reducing wear on the fibers.
