There are different opinions when it comes to taking care of your carpet at home. Some people tend to stick to their favourite brands of shampoo and even use all-natural products that are both safe and organic. There is also a comparison between the right PH level of cleaning products, the amount of solution used, and the correct temperature. Despite the differences in cleaning strategies, there are certain standards and rules that all professional cleaners have in common. Here’s the carpet cleaning timetable that professionals recommend.
- Clean it everyday. You need to do daily cleaning by vacuuming the carpet. This will clean and remove the dust, soil, and dander found on the surface of the carpet fibres. Vacuuming is also able to get rid of all allergens and particles so that your home will not have any germs or bacteria that can cause health problems in the future.
- Monthly maintenance. Conduct spot cleaning and vacuuming once a month. What makes this different from normal regular cleaning is that spot cleaning needs to be done right after something has spilled on the carpet. When doing routine maintenance, concentrate on taking care of areas with high traffic, old stains that were never cleaned, and bringing back the carpet’s original condition.
- Some household situations require cleaning every six Areas that are regularly subjected to high traffic from frequent guests going in and out of the home should be cleaned every six months. These areas will wear out sooner than other less exposed parts of the house. Homes with pets and children should also be cleaned every six months because of the higher tendency for spills from food and stains from urine, vomit or faeces.
- Professional deep cleaning every year. Yearly maintenance not only focuses on spots that have major problems but covers the whole carpet. Even carpets that do not look very dirty should be cleaned at least once every 12 months. Hot water extraction is the best technique for professional deep cleaning and is highly recommended by carpet manufacturers.
Follow this timetable and your carpet will get the best maintenance. It will have a longer lifespan allowing you to use it for years. For top quality carpet cleaning and stain removal services, call AIM Property Solutions. You can depend on us to give your carpet the finest care and attention.
