Keeping your house clean can be a difficult, if not a frustrating, process for many homeowners. There are all kinds of wear and tear that can happen to furniture, plumbing, and more, and cleaning up (and keeping these items in good shape) when you already have a full plate (family, job, etc.) only makes the cleaning job worse. But if you take the process slow and tackle tasks in small doses, you don’t have to feel overwhelmed or give up. When it comes to your carpeting, how can you make sure it stays in good shape during the spring? What do you need to keep in mind, and why is professional carpet cleaning worth looking into, even if it’s just you in the home? Here are some care tips.
Keep Your Porch Clean
This doesn’t occur to many people, but if you want to keep your carpeting clean this spring, you need to make sure the outside of your home is clean as well. This doesn’t mean you have to sweep your driveway or wipe down every surface of your yard, but if dirt or mud is on your porch, someone could easily bring it into your home. If you see a dirt issue, clean it right away if possible.
Pay Attention to Pets
We love our pets, but they can get a little messy. Muddy paw prints, shedded fur, spilled food or water, and more can lead to a dirty carpet. Clean up pet messes as soon as possible, and hire a professional carpet cleaning company once or twice a year to help you keep your house in order, and you’re good to go.
Use Rugs and Mats Where Possible
Give people a place to put their shoes and it’s less likely you will need to constantly vacuum or clean your carpeting. Don’t use Oriental rugs for this or it could lead to Oriental rug cleaning or irreparable damage.
