In the summer, carpets get quite dirty from all the activities going on such as:
- Family Visits
- Children home from School all day
Luckily professional Carpet Cleaning from Zen Carpet Cleaning can help keep those carpets looking like new, no matter what all your carpet may go through.
Here are also some great tips to help keep the carpet as clean as possible:
An easy way to help keep dirt off your indoor carpets is by asking all family members and visitors to remove their shoes as they enter your home.
Most people know what a drag it is getting your carpet all dirty so they usually do not mind when you ask them to do so.
Area Rugs and Mats
If you do not feel comfortable asking your house guests to remove their shoes, another great way to keep your carpet clean is by putting down Area Rugs in places that you know will contain heavy traffic such as the living room.
Also by putting down a doormat at the entrance of your home will give visitors a place to wipe off the dirt that may be stuck on the bottom of their shoes before entering your home.
Vacuuming at least once a week (twice if you entertain more often) will help keep dust, dirt and allergens from settling into your carpet and prevent excessive wear and tear damage to the fibers.
Also try sprinkling some baking soda on the carpet before vacuuming to help absorb odors.
