Changing leaves, changing temperatures, and perhaps a little precipitation are welcome signs that Autumn has arrived. Many people love the red, orange, and yellow colors. Others enjoy the sound of wood burning in fireplaces or the cherished scents of cinnamon and nutmeg. A few look forward to cuddling up with a good book or movie next to a hot cup of tea, cider, or chocolate during the longer nights. Others scurry around to get things ready for the holidays.
Despite these familiar habits, COVID still creates behavioral divisions. Many of us are still a little hesitant to gather in groups, whereas others are more than happy to bring back the festivities and make up for lost time. In either of these circumstances, carpet maintenance plays an important role in keeping our homes healthy and good looking. Clean carpets provide ambiance, are a comfortable place to lay down before the fire, and they soften the paths we tread while keeping our feet protected from cold floors. To make sure our carpets do their job this season while making us and any guests happy, it’s important to keep them clean.
Don’t Let Minor Stains Set
If we do have visitors, we are far more likely to see stains on our carpet afterwards. Let’s face it, extra feet, extra dinner plates, extra desserts and wine glasses and coffee — that usually translates into more stains than usual. Any spill on your carpet – even just water – has the potential to become a stain. The longer stains stay in place, the more difficult they are to remove. Spills and stains also recruit accomplices like germs, odors, and allergens if not cleaned promptly, so cleaning them up as quickly as possible is the best way to keep your carpet doing its job right. Our intermittent series, The Bane of Stains, discusses what to do with many different types of stains so they do not impede on autumn activities.
