How to Keep Your Carpets Fresh and Clean

Ahh…fresh and clean carpets! They’re wonderful, aren’t they? As wonderful as they are, it can be quite a challenge to keep them fresh and clean between professional cleanings. Follow these 5 simple tips on how to keep your carpets fresh and clean!

Stop Wearing Shoes in Your House

If you regularly read our blogs, you know that one of the best things you can do to keep your carpet in great shape is to stop wearing shoes in your house! According to a study done at the University of Utah, bacteria is transferred from your shoes into your home at a rate of 90 to 99 percent. Yuck! Leave that at the door and keep your carpet germ free.

Add ScotchgardTM

We highly rec

ommend adding a carpet protector to your freshly cleaned carpets, such as Scotchgard™, to protect them from spots, spills, and stains. Applying Scotchgard™ will not change the look or feel of your carpeting from what you know and love. It simply helps to prevent stains when they happen (and we know they’re going to happen).

Plus, with each application, we also provide a free 6-month spot and spill warranty. So, if a new spot or stain surfaces on an area treated with Scotchgard™, we will clean it for free.

Vacuum Weekly

Vacuuming is very important when it comes to keeping your carpet fresh and clean. When you vacuum weekly, you’re regularly pulling at the pile of the carpeting. By doing this you not only get the pile to stand straight up, but you’re also removing the top layer of dust and dirt. If you wait an extended period of time between vacuuming, then dust and dirt will settle deeper into your carpet.

Professionally Clean Yearly

There are 4 main reasons why you should have your carpets professionally cleaned:

  1. Health Benefits
  2. Preventative Benefits
  3. Increased Longevity
  4. Appealing to the Eye & Fresh Scent

In addition to these added benefits, you’ll also maintain the integrity of your carpet’s manufacturer warranty. If you need to schedule your yearly cleaning, submit a form online or call us at 314-227-3932 today!

Attack Stains Right Away

Getting to a stain while it’s still wet will increase the odds of completely removing the stain altogether. If you allow the stain to dry, it most likely will reach the roots of your carpet and soak into your carpet pad. This is one of the reasons the main reasons why stains resurface.
