7 Steps To Save Your Carpet

7 Steps To Save Your Carpet

Overall I am not a fan of carpet.  My preferance is always hard surfaces such as wood and tile.  Be that as it may, carpet is a viable flooring option.  It is something that I recommend for rental properties.  Carpet is relatively easy to replace for an investment that doesn't make your heart stop the way an invoice for hardwood floors will.

Here are a few tips for carpet owners:

  1. Like relationships, addressing problems immediately is best.  Keep a long healthy relationship with your carpet by cleaning spills and stains up right away.

  2. Use a vacuum cleaner that hits or pulls the carpet to loosen dirt.  The suction is important.  Surface vacuums are not useful for long term carpet care.

  3. Visit your local supermarket or CostCo to rent a wet vacuum system.

  4. Periodically spring for a professional cleaning service.

  5. Vacuum heavy traffic areas at least twice a week.  

  6. Vacuum light traffic areas once weekly.

  7. Ideally do not wear shoes in the household.  Bare feet or feet in slippers are cleaner and easier on your flooring.

Enjoy the warmth of the carpet beneath your feet on cool mornings.  It is lovely to pop out of bed in bare feet and feel the carpet.  There are somethings about carpet that I do like.
