The Right Way To Clean Carpet Tiles

The Right Way To Clean Carpet Tiles

There are people who prefer carpet tiles over wall to wall carpeting, and you might be one of them. Carpet tiles or squares have a more trendy and modern look. To maintain its appeal longer, you need to keep them clean. Here’s some general carpet cleaning advice which is also true when caring for carpet tiles.

You first have to observe which area gets the most traffic because the carpet tiles in that area have a greater tendency to get stained or easily wear out. Regularly vacuum your carpet, paying close attention to high-traffic areas. Vacuum those every other day, if you can. Clean up spills and stains right away and do not give them time to set in.

The Right Way To Clean Carpet Tiles

Avoid rubbing

Whenever something spills on your carpet tiles, do not make the mistake of rubbing it off. That will only make the stain sink deeper. Blot the area carefully with a clean cloth instead.

Harsh chemicals need to be avoided

Don’t be too quick at grabbing just any cleaning solution to clean the stain after blotting. You can use a small amount of vinegar and water to clean the stain without causing more damage to the carpet. Be sure to pre-test any cleaning solution you’re trying on an inconspicuous part of the carpet first.

One great advantage of carpet tiles

There is one thing that significantly differentiates the carpet tile from a regular carpet. When an area is heavily and permanently soiled, all you need to do is remove the stained tiles and use your spare carpet tiles to replace them. The only thing that might bother you is that the new carpet squares will be more distinct because they look newer than the rest of the carpet tiles. Another option is to take a clean square from an area that is not exposed and use that to change the stained one.
