4 DAILY ACTIVITIES FOR MAINTENANCE OF CARPETS
Carpets come with a set of dos and don’ts. Both the beauty and durability of most fabrics depend on their cleanliness. Cleaning your carpet properly is simpler than you think. It will make it look great for its full lifetime, help improve your indoor air quality and keep your carpet warranties intact.
If you notice that your carpets don’t look clean and fresh, the following tips should help you
maintain your carpets and rugs:
Your vacuum is the best defense against an early retirement for your carpet. Maintaining a routine vacuum schedule helps in keeping a good indoor air quality by removing the buildup of
dust and dirt. Do this once or twice a week. Routine vacuuming removes 90% of all dry soil. Vacuuming should be done in the direction of the pile. Run your hand along the carpet to feel the direction of the pile. If the pile feels nice and smooth, it is in the direction of the pile. If it feels rough and rises; this is against the direction of the pile. For complete cleaning be sure movements are slow and methodical when vacuuming.
• Remove excess moisture using absorbent cloths, towels, etc, and protect the cleaned area until the carpet is completely dry.
• Rub or agitate vigorously as this could distort or damage the pile and create lighter patches on the floor covering.
• Over wet the carpet.
