At Zerorez professional carpet cleaning in Las Vegas, NV, we know how to keep carpets clean and looking new. If your carpeting is starting to look a little sad, as in worn and faded, you should know that it may not be the way the carpeting was manufactured. The problem is likely the way you’ve treated your carpeting over the years. Here are 8 things that can ruin the look and feel of your carpets:
1 – Not Maintaining Your Vacuum Cleaner
Vacuum cleaners keep carpets clean by churning up the fibers and sucking dirt into a bag or a collection receptacle. It’s vitally important that you maintain your vacuum cleaner to keep it running optimally because a malfunctioning vacuum means more abrasive debris left on your carpeting. Clean out the collection receptacle after every use or change bags when they’re full. Check the impeller blades for damage and the beater bar for wound-up hair and string that can keep it from turning freely.
2 – Exposing Carpeting To High Traffic
You probably can’t control how many people walk across your carpeting; but you can choose the right kind of carpeting to lay in high-traffic areas. If your carpeting isn’t meant for heavy foot traffic, you can cover it with throw rugs to limit damage rather than completely replacing it.
3 – Tracking Dirt And Debris Onto Carpeting
Placing bristled doormats outside all of your doors and rugs inside thresholds means you’ll trap a good deal of dirt and debris that gets tracked into your home, and, subsequently, tracked onto your carpeting.
4 – Cleaning Spills Too Vigorously
Like most people, you probably clean up messy spills promptly; but are you cleaning them too well? Most spills can and should be blotted up with a damp rag or sponge. Vigorous scrubbing of carpet fibers wears them down and residual soap can attract more dirt than it removes.
5 – Exposing Them To Sunlight
Too much sun is a big problem in Nevada. It’s not only bad for people, it’s also bad for furniture and carpets. Keep your blinds or curtains drawn during the shank of the day when the sunlight is streaming through the windows to keep your carpeting from fading.
6 – Not Moving Furniture Around
If you have heavy furniture that stays in one place all the time, the carpet fibers under them can become permanently damaged. Rotate heavy pieces of furniture from time to time to keep areas from becoming too compressed and to limit damage to fibers.
7 – Over-wetting Carpeting
The way most people over-wet their carpets is by using rented carpet cleaning machines. These machines can put a lot of water into carpeting that usually doesn’t get suctioned out properly. Avoid using rental machines even if you feel your carpet needs a deep-cleaning because the water you don’t remove from your carpeting can cause it to develop mold or mildew.
