Spring is a wonderful time of year, isn’t it? The weather gets warmer, the flowers come to life, and it’s finally warm enough to start spending time outdoors. While all of these activities are great, they are catalysts for carpet dirt and stains to build up. So, we are here to offer you a few tips on how you can keep your carpet clean this spring.
The golden rule to remember with carpet cleaning is that prevention is the best method. Therefore, encourage any guests to take their shoes off before they step foot on your carpet, or at the very least, make sure they wipe their feet on your doormat. Dirt can cake up on their shoes, which will transfer onto your carpet should they walk on it.
If you have pets, make sure that they too take care to wipe their paws after being outside. A wet paper towels will do wonders on a muddy paw, and you’ll be able to stop the stain before it starts.
However, even with prevention, make sure that you vacuum regularly; people can carry in pollen and dust particles that may end up on your carpet. At the very least, do a pass once per week, but feel free to do as many as you see fit, especially if you have an active family.
Spring carpet cleaning, at the end of it, is all about prevention and upkeep. These tips may seem incredibly simple, but these simple steps are all you need to prevent a carpet catastrophe.
