Carpet Maintenance Tips

Carpet MaintenanceProper carpet maintenance is important, to help your carpet last.

I have been providing carpet cleaning in the Lexington KY area for years.  I always like to explain the benefits to my clients about the importance of proper carpet maintenance.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, it’s no different when it comes to maintaining the carpeting in your home.  It’s worth a little to take care of your carpet properly, rather than a lot to replace your carpet.

The most important thing you can do to maintain your carpet is to vacuum regularly.  The dirt and soil tracked in on your feet act like sandpaper to the finish of a fine automobile.  Just imagine, if you do not vacuum on a regular basis, what the dry soil will do to your carpet fibers as you and the members of your family repeatedly walk across your carpet.  You won’t be able to immediately notice the damage but eventually you will develop those unsightly traffic patterns and you don’t want those.  It’s a good idea to set up a regular schedule to vacuum your carpet, it will save you money in the long run.  Another thing that is good to do, is to have walk off mats at the entrances and exits of your home, these will help catch some of the dry soil before it is tracked on to your carpet.  Vacuuming and installing walk off mats will help you with carpet maintenance.

Having your carpet professionally cleaned at least once per year is another important factor in proper carpet maintenance.

Even though you have been vacuuming on a regular basis and using walk off mats at the entrances of your home.  Having your carpet professionally cleaned at least once per year is a good idea.  Not only will this help protect the investment of your carpeting, having your carpet professionally cleaned will help rid your carpet of dust and allergens helping to improve your indoor air quality.  Depending on the size of your family and if you have pets– you might want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned twice or three times a year.  It is going to depend on the traffic in your home.  Preventive maintenance, such as vacuuming and carpet cleaning– is much less expensive than total replacement of your carpeting.

Another very important step in proper carpet maintenance, is applying Scotchgard after having your carpet professionally cleaned.
