Clean Quickly and Easily

It is always a good idea to take care of your carpet and the areas where you place furniture and other items that will wear out quickly. However, there are some simple steps you can take on a weekly basis to keep your carpets looking fresh and new. With just a little attention it will make a difference in how your carpet looks and feels for many years to come.

The first step in cleaning your carpet is to get it thoroughly vacuumed and dried. This will prevent any stains from spreading. If you have children, it is a good idea to get the kids involved in the cleaning process as well. This can be done by using a steamer to get the dust and dirt out.

After vacuuming the carpet you will want to use stain removal products to get rid of the marks or stains that may have set in. You will want to be sure that you do not over apply any stain removal product as this could cause your carpet to become discolored. If the stain removal product does not remove the stain completely, you will want to use an even stronger solution.

Once you have cleaned the carpet, you will want to use a cleaner to give it a good shine. A great cleaner to use is a steam cleaner that is usually made for carpet and can work well in most carpet cleaners available. When using a steam cleaner to clean your carpet, you are not only cleaning the area and removing the stain but you are also getting rid of all the odors that were trapped within the carpet.

After you have finished with the carpet cleaning and stain removal, you will want to use water to rinse the area so that you are not leaving anything behind that can be re-soiled. You can use a garden hose to rinse the carpet as well. Always make sure you rinse the area completely as if you don’t you may end up with a sticky residue that can re-soil the area.

As you can see there are many ways you can clean your carpet if you put the time and effort into it. Even a small amount of time spent cleaning your carpet each week will help to maintain the cleanliness of your home as well as the area around it. If you use these simple steps every week, your carpet will look as good as new for many years to come.
