Preparing your carpet for cleaning
There are several steps you can take when preparing your carpet for cleaning. A lot depends on how dirty it is or how big the spills, spots or stains are. This will determine what techniques to use or procedures to abide by. Here are some helpful tips on taking care of your carpet and preparing it for cleaning.
1. Prevention is the best preparation so make sure you have your guest, family and yourself remove your shoes once you enter your house. If your carpet reaches your front door or any other place in your house that tends to have a lot of traffic, put rugs by those areas or plastic protector mats.
2. You should vacuum two or three times a week and if you have pets such as dogs or cats, everyday. Not only does vacuuming keep your carpet looking good but it also keeps it fresh and clean. Don’t rush while vacuuming. Take your time to make sure you’ve hit all of the spots.
3. If you’re preparing your carpet for a cleaning company, move any furniture or other items that you would like them to clean up under. Be sure to vacuum prior to them arriving and point out any stains or spills once they are there so they can apply pre-treatment and clean it thoroughly.
4. Lastly, spills aren’t pleasant. If a spill happens on your carpet, don’t just let it sit there…clean it up right away. Some suggestions of cleaning materials are baking powder, club soda, vinegar, lemon, salt or even carpet cleaner. When using the baking soda, let it sit for about 15 minutes to dry before you vacuum it up.
