With spring right around the corner, many families are focused on how they can improve their homes with spring cleaning. If you want to help your carpets look better this spring, here are some tips for how to keep your indoor carpets from attracting dirt.
Don’t Wear Shoes Indoors
If your family has a habit of wearing shoes indoors, this spring is the season to break that habit. Wearing shoes in the house can track dirt indoors, which then spreads across your flooring and carpet. Dirt buildup in your carpet not only impacts the appearance, but it also impacts the quality of your carpet and its longevity. Set-in dirt can weaken the fibers of your carpet, wearing it down over time and with repeated instances of dirt buildup. If protecting your carpet’s appearance isn’t enough, you also have to clean it more often when you wear shoes on your carpet. Spring means more time outdoors, so now is the perfect time to start breaking this habit.
Regular vacuuming is one of the best ways to keep dirt from becoming a set-in stain in your carpet. Vacuuming often allows you to act fast and clear your carpet of dust, dirt, and other debris that might make its way into your carpet fibers over time. Just remember to replace your vacuuming filter or bag regularly. If the bag is full or your filter gets clogged, vacuuming will become useless, as your machine won’t be able to pick up any additional dirt.
Schedule a Professional Carpet Cleaning
Scheduling a professional carpet cleaning can also help you prevent dirt and stains from becoming set-in stains on your carpet. If you catch stains and dirt early enough with carpet treatment, you can remove them like nothing ever happened; this is just one benefit of a professional carpet cleaning service. You’ll also have peace of mind that your home is cleaner and healthier. This is because professional carpet cleaners help remove allergens from carpet that a vacuum doesn’t pick up.
We hope these tips for keeping your indoor carpets from attracting dirt help bolster your spring cleaning efforts this year. Protect your home’s appearance and health with these simple tips along the way this spring.
