Having carpet in your home creates a cozy ambience and offers a nice decorative appeal. The different hues and patterns of carpet can add a splash of texture and color to your room. It also helps insulate your home, by not allowing air to enter and escape through your floors.

Carpet is a great addition to a home, but its downside is that it can be difficult to keep clean. Carpet traps dirt and allergens that are both harmful to your health and unattractive to look at. The key to keeping carpet a positive element of your house and not a detriment is to regularly clean them.

Here are a few tips for cleaning your carpets:

  • Steam clean them. This is one of the most effective way to thoroughly clean your carpets. You need to have a steam cleaner to do so. However, you can hire a professional to do it for you especially if you have loads of carpet to clean.
  • Choose mild products. Harsh products can easily damage the look of your carpet and will cause it to easily wear and tear. Mild products, on the other hand, are gentle on your carpet and clean away dirt without damaging the texture or material.
  • Look for easy stain removers. These days, there are many products out there that make it easy to remove stains from your carpet, but there are also many home rememdies. Some of these include club soda, shaving cream, and even your dishwashing agent. It can be cost-effective when you multi-purpose items and cleaners around your home
  • Vacuum them. If your carpets only need regular freshening up, vacuuming is the best way to go. It removes dirt and dust without causing any damage on your carpet materials. Avoid too much washing of your carpets.
  • Hire a cleaning pro. If you cannot thoroughly clean your carpets to your liking, then hire a carpet cleaning expert to do it for you. Most of us have very limited time to clean our homes, so hiring a pro for the big jobs can alleviate a huge cleaning burden for you.
  • Always spot clean your carpet. Any time you see a spill or a noticeable stain, clean it separately before you clean the carpet as a whole. Use a good carpet cleaner that is mild, but effective.
