Vacuum: Yes, a simple step such as vacuuming can help your carpets last longer. It will remove dirt, dust, and other particles that can accumulate in your carpet, this also includes area rugs. This step will help keep your carpet looking and smelling fresh and can also help to prevent the buildup of allergens that can trigger allergies and asthma. Keep in mind that if you have allergies or asthma, we highly recommend a vacuum with a HEPA filtration system.
Spot cleaning: Did the kids spill juice? By tackling spills and stains immediately, the less chance it will leave a permanent mark on your carpet. The longer a spill or stain sits on your carpet, the harder it will be to remove. Blot spills with a clean, white cloth and clean the area with a mild detergent or a carpet cleaner specifically designed for the type of stain. Preferred Carpet Care can also provide a spot cleaner to keep in hand for those quick spot cleanings.
Doormats: By simply placing a doormat outside your front door will help to keep dirt, dust, and debris from being tracked onto your carpet. Of course, dirt will always find its way to your home and that’s where vacuum cleaners assist the dirt and dust control in your home.
Sunlight: Sunlight can fade your carpet over time. Here in Northern California, we get plenty of sunshine during summer, so consider using window treatments or curtains to avoid direct exposure to sunlight during high temperature days.
