Surrey Carpet Cleaning Company – Purpose of Maintaining Carpets Year Round

Sep 26th, 2017 | by Angelo |    0   

Carpeting remains a popular choice for many homes today. Solid, yet soft and comfy to stand on, it infuses the home with warmth and beauty. Today, with an array of textures, patterns, and colours available, carpeting has become a focal point of interior design—and this is often reflected in the cost. After making such an investment, you’ll want to ensure that it remains a great looking feature of your home—and this is where carpet cleaning comes in.

Carpet cleaning is the single most important factor in prolonging the life of your carpets. The good news is that Angelo, of Angelo's Area Rug Cleaning & Carpet Cleaning Company in Surrey , says this can mostly be handled at home and has provided some tips based on years of industry experience.

Vacuuming

Vacuuming is the number one way to keep your carpets clean. As a professional carpet cleaner, Angelo suggests vacuuming a minimum of once or twice a week—although he adds that it might need to be more frequent in a high-traffic household with pets and children. Frequent vacuuming will prevent the build-up of dust and debris, which can wear down carpet fibres, causing the fabric to fray and dull. To deodorize, a simple carpet cleaning powder can help keep a room fresh between professional carpet cleanings.

Stain Removal

There’s nothing worse than spills, splotches, and unsightly stains to ruin the aesthetic of a room. If the rug or carpet is an heirloom or particularly expensive, it’s important to call a professional carpet cleaner who can look at the composition of the carpet/rug and determine the best way to manage the stain. For everything else, try simple old fashioned shaving cream. Never rub at a stain as this will push into the fibres. Blot up as much of the mess as possible. Then apply the shaving cream and wait about 20 minutes, then blot away the cream using a simple mixture of white vinegar and club soda.

Professional Carpet Cleaning

All rugs and carpets require a professional carpet cleaning at least once a year. Basically, this is washing the rug, which removes the deep ground-in dirt that vacuums just can’t reach. It’s possible to rent carpet cleaning equipment, and this can work well. However, these machines generally don’t compare to professional carpet cleaners, who have better equipment and cleaning solvents. Even if you do occasionally use DIY solutions, hiring a professional carpet cleaner at least once a year is generally advisable for optimal results.

With a little know-how and assistance, you can help prolong the life and beauty of your carpets. For carpet cleaning services around the Lower Mainland, contact Angelo's Carpet Cleaning at 604.421.1855.
