After a Professional Carpet Cleaning how do I maintain my carpet?

When your carpets are professionally cleaned, keeping them clean becomes a potential issue. These tips will keep your carpets clean after a professional carpet cleaning.

Walking Before Dry

 You should never walk across wet carpeting. Allow carpet to completely dry first, whether is a small spill or a professional cleaning.

Do Not Go Barefoot But, Remove Shoes

Walking barefoot on your professionally cleaned carpet is not a good idea. The natural oils in your skin leave an oily residue behind. This oily residue can leave your carpet with a dirty look and it attracts dirt. Instead of going barefoot, wear socks or slippers that you do not wear outdoors to walk on your carpet.

Immediately Clean Stains and Spills

 The longer a spill remains on your carpet, the harder it is to remove. Clean spills and stains immediately.

Only Blot

Blot your spills or stains. Blotting soaks up the spill, as opposed to rubbing which causes it to soak into the carpet fibers. First try water to clean the spill. Use paper towels or a clean white towel. Using a spot cleaner or stain remover is recommended by some sources. Angie’s List recommends against using harsh chemicals. If water does not work, use a small amount of dish detergent. Contact your professional carpet cleaner for help if this does not work.

Regularly Vacuum

 Do you only vacuum when your carpet looks dirty? Whether you think it needs it or not, vacuum regularly to keep your carpet looking clean longer after a professional cleaning. Vacuuming removes dirt and particles you don’t see. Vacuuming regularly helps remove pollutants that are carried inside.
