When you walk into someone’s home your eye probably scans the visible parts of the house to see what it looks like. Your eyes will take in the flooring, walls, furniture, lighting, décor, and more. In an ideal world homeowners want to have their home make a good first impression. One thing that helps a home make a statement to your visitors is for it to be nice and clean when they walk in. An important aspect of having your home clean is for your carpet to be nice and clean. Today Eddie & Sons Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning is going to give you some outstanding tips on how to keep your carpet nice and clean.

Vacuum Carpet Floors

The first tip that we have for you is a simple one. Vacuum your floors on a regular basis. We recommend that you vacuum your floors at least a few times a week. Some people choose to vacuum their carpet every day. If you have pets you will want to vacuum your floor more often to help get rid of the pet dander. When you vacuum you should take your time to go up and back each section of carpet so that you do not miss any spots. You will want to make sure that you clean out your vacuum canister or bag regularly to ensure that your vacuum functions properly.

Clean Spills Before they Get Ground In

Next up on our carpet care tip list is to clean up any spills as soon as you see them. When things are spilled onto your carpet you will want to remove it as soon as possible. Leaving the spill on your carpet gives it a chance to sink into your carpet. The longer that the spill sits on your carpet the harder it is to get out. You should teach your family members that it is important to clean up spills when they happen on their own or come and get you to help them if they cannot remove it on their own.

Blot Carpet Stains, Don’t Scrub

When you clean up spills on your carpet you will want to be careful to clean them properly. You never want to scrub the stained area. Scrubbing will only result in the stain going further into the fibers of your carpet. Blotting is the preferred method of removing stains from your flooring. You can research online for tips on how to remove different types of stains from your carpet.
