5 ways to protect your carpet and increase lifespan

1.Keep the Dirt Out

1.Having a clean carpet is important. A dirty carpet can have thousands of dust mites living in the carpet dust, and soil can accumulate underneath it every year. Carpets can contain several indoor contamination and promote the growth of mold in damp areas which often cause allergies.  

2.Vacuum the Carpets Frequently and Regularly

Vacuuming your carpet on a frequent and regular basis is another great way to extend the lifespan of your carpet. It will help diminish the accumulation of dirt which is harsh to carpet fibers.

To protect your carpet, vacuum as often as 2-4 times a week especially in high traffic areas. A big part of the soil in carpet is dry and can be removed with the vacuum cleaner. Frequent vacuuming will inhibit the accumulation of dirt and dust into the carpet backing.

3. Spot Clean Stains ASAP

You can't always stop spills from happening, but if you react quickly and immediately clean up anything solid and sop up any excess liquid.

When you don't act immediately to clean a spill, it can soak into the carpet fibers and padding and cause damages. If the spill is given time to dry and set, they can turn into permanent stains, and worse, if the spill is acidic, it may even start to eat away at the fibers. Act quickly to soak up the spill while you can still prevent it from ruining your carpet.

4.Regular Deep Cleaning

A clean carpet is a happy carpet, and regular care from a commercial carpet cleaning company will help extend the life of you carpet and keep it looking newer longer. It is recommended that you should have the entire space cleaned by a professional at least every 12 to 24 months, and high-traffic areas should be done more frequently to preserve and maintain the appearance of the carpet. Manufacturer warranties require this to be done. If you ever have a warranty issue, the first thing the manufacturing inspector will ask for, is for your receipts from a professional carpet cleaning company. Without these, your warranty will be void. They MUST be professional company receipts, renting a machine and doing it yourself is not accepted. It is very much like having to rotate the tires on your car, in order to keep your warranty valid.

5. Mats at Every Door

Every entryway should have mats to catch anything before it makes it too far into the room. Most commercial carpet cleaning company experts estimate that it takes two to three steps for most of the dirt and debris to come off shoes so your mats should be long enough to take a few steps.
