Carpet Cleaning The Easy Way!

By Roni Cohen

The look of our carpets affects the image and atmosphere of our homes, as well as making lasting impressions on visitors. In this article you will find topics on tips for carpet cleaning, how to deal with molds and mildew and how to keep your carpets protected so you won’t have to bury it in rugs.

The best form of carpet cleaning is always prevention. Taking proper care and maintaining your carpet will save you money from having to buy expensive cleaning products. Never rub rashly and carelessly at a carpet stain, this may only cause it to smear and become permanent. Also, doing this will weaken the fiber causing your carpet to wear out quicker. Stains that are not treated well often reappear at the surface of your carpet. You may have thought you’ve cleaned the stain, but soon after you’ll see the same making its way to the surface of your rug. To prevent this, cover the stain with a thick cloth and weigh down with something heavy overnight, allowing the cloth to absorb the stain, then, clean as usual. Never use an iron or a hair dryer to dry a carpet stain; this will only seal the stain permanently on your rug.

Steam cleaning your carpet is a task that is often overlooked. Paying an affordable price for a professional cleaner to clean your carpet is often better than spending a large sum of money to replace the whole carpet once it is filthy. Steam cleaning should be done regularly depending on how heavy the traffic is in your home and whether or not you own pets. You can also steam clean your own carpet by renting a carpet cleaning machine from Home Depot or a grocery store like Ralph’s Grocery that has them. The advantage of a professional carpet cleaner would be a more thorough cleaning due to stronger equipment, a choice of detergents, and no blistered hands.


A clean carpet is one that is taken care of. Take the time to vacuum often enough and make sure to do it correctly. That means going over the floor in several directions to allow the vacuum to pick up all the debris it can. A high quality vacuum is the best choice. Make sure to use it correctly as you are directed by the manufacturer. Also, make sure to keep the bags or containers empty and filters clean as well. As much as possible, use the mildest cleaning products available in the market on your carpet. Use only harsher ones with stubborn stains and certain spillages. Mild carpet shampoos are still always the best solution. When using a cleaning product, the trick is “read the label and follow the manufacturer’s instruction” if not sure check the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)

An entrance mat is good tool to keep dirt outside where it belongs! Friends and visitors no doubt will use it to brush off their shoes before they step into your clean home. One important factor about entrance rugs, is to have one outside and one inside the doorway because dirt never comes completely off with one shake outside. The outside mat will remove chunky dirt and the inside mat will catch the finer particles. They key to having mats perform the best for you is giving them a regular shake to rid it of all the loose dirt. Once a mat reaches the point of saturation for dirt particles it cannot do its intended job. Even though you are very efficient in protective maintenance, dirt still get in. An idea is to designate a spot near the door for shoes so that anyone entering is only wear socks or barefoot. Last but not least, vacuum.

Keeping your carpet clean is more than trying to stay healthy. It prolongs the life of your carpets and gives your home an atmosphere of comfort. If you have recently installed new carpet, you realize the expense involved in doing so. Think of your savings with regular maintenance and the benefits of keeping your carpet clean! You can add value to your home as well as impress your friends. Your family will also enjoy a cleaner, healthier living space. Enjoy the results of a little extra work by taking the time to protect and preserve your carpets.
