One of the best feelings in the world is having a clean home. In fact, researchers at Princeton University conducted a study in 2011 that found clutter can make it difficult to concentrate on a specific task. This all but proves that a clean home equals a clearer mind! If you have growing children or pets, then you know all too well how difficult it can be to keep up with day-to-day cleanliness. Having clean floors and maintaining them can be especially challenging, unless you have an amazing carpet cleaning company to help you combat the mess. Laurelwood Carpet Cleaning is here with a few helpful tips to help you keep your carpets cleaner for longer.

Treat Carpet Stains ASAP

If you see a stain or notice a spill on your carpets, treat the stain right away before it gets set in. We have many helpful resources for different types of stain removal in our prior blog posts. Always remember, when treating a stain, always blot the affected area, never rub! Rubbing will push the stain deeper into the carpet fibers making it harder or even impossible to remove.

Vacuum Carpet Often

If you have a home that experiences a lot of traffic, then we recommend vacuuming daily, for homes with less traffic, at least 3x weekly. Even if your carpets don’t appear to be dirty, they are harboring more than what meets the eye. We live in a giant dustbowl here in the valley. The average homes collects around 40 pound of dust a year, guess where the majority of that dust ends up? You guessed it! Your carpets! By vacuuming daily, you can greatly reduce the number of contaminants hiding in your carpets.

Carpet Odor Removal Treatment

Sprinkle baking soda on your carpets a few times a month before vacuuming. This will help to absorb any unpleasant odors in the fibers of your carpets and will leave them smelling fresh. Avoid using carpet powders, they leave a residue on your carpet that can make them stain quicker.

Keep Food & Drink Off of Carpeted Areas

We know, we know. Kids have a mind of their own and don’t always follow the rules. But by implementing a no food/drinks allowed policy you can eliminate a major factor in the staining on your carpets.

Use Rugs & Runners

We recommend placing runners and rugs in any high traffic areas and under your coffee or end tables. This will allow the rugs to take more of a beating than your carpet does and intercept those unwanted and unsightly black traffic marks down the hall or in the entry way.

Professional Steam Carpet Cleaning

Choose a good quality carpet cleaning company to deep clean your carpets 1-2x yearly- Beware of discount carpet cleaners. You will benefit greatly from choosing a high-quality, reputable carpet cleaning company with powerful, truck mounted equipment. These powerful machines will give you a truly deep clean and extract most of the water from your carpets, which will cut drying time in half and eliminate the risk of growing mildew or harmful mold in your carpets.
