During the winter, mud and dirt were mainly contained under a prison of snow and ice. Spring rains have released them, and not for “good behavior.” That mud and dirt is now getting tracked into your home or business and onto your carpeting. An easy way to ward off layers of undesirable mud on your carpets is to use doormats & hallway rugs to catch any errant dirt before it gets tracked onto the carpet.
Exposing your carpet to too much humidity and heat can cause odors and stains to set in deeper than they would in drier conditions. Maintain a proper air flow around your carpet. Use air conditioning or open windows to create air currents that can dry carpets.
It seems silly to say it, but regular vacuuming is healthy for a carpet. Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean that vacuuming isn’t a good idea. Muster up the energy to beat the heat, and your carpet will thank you for it!
