4 handy ideas to keep your carpet clean

carpet3Healthy homes start with the floor up. Keeping your carpet clean is more than just having a healthy home.

By keeping your floors clean you will:

  • Extend the life of your carpet
  • Protects indoor air quality
  • Prevents build up of bacteria and mould
  • Improve the appearance of your home and create a nice ambience
  • Help keep your children healthy

Here are some handy ideas to keep your carpet clean:

  1. Clean spills immediately. If you deal with any spills immediately they will be much easier to stop. They are less likely to create stains and spread in your carpet. Dab, do not rub the spill or it will scatter throughout the area.
  1. Vacuum your carpet regularly. Vacuum at least once a week and more often if needed. By removing dirt and dust through vacuuming you will prevent it from spreading throughout your house and working its way to the bottom of the carpet where it is hard to get out
  1. Preventative is better than cure. Get your family and guests to remove their shoes before entering your home, less dirt, dust, sand etc will be walked in.
  1. Mats. Use mats in front of all your outside doors, especially your front door. Mats are also great in high traffic areas like your hallway. When vacuuming remember to take your mats outside and put them in the sun, then give them a good bang out before a final vacuum before returning them to their place.

Follow these simple tips and this will help to keep your carpets much cleaner. For the ultimate healthy carpet, get it professionally steam cleaned once a year.
