Are You Properly Maintaining Your Carpet?


If you’re looking to extend the lifespan of your carpeting, the one thing you need to focus on while maintaining it is the high foot traffic areas. Not removing the soil on a regular basis will cause your carpeting to wear excessively since the dirt is extremely abrasive to the fibers. The next thing you always need to focus on is stains. If you don’t treat some stains immediately, they’ll cause permanent damage to the carpet, so should you get a stain from,

  • Red Beverages (juice or wine)
  • Blood
  • Urine
  • Thick Foods

You need to act immediately so you can keep your carpet well-maintained. Now if you have a stain warranty on your carpeting, know that they range anywhere from five to 20 years. However, if you DO have a stain resistant warranty, they usually require that you regularly clean your carpeting and act immediate with spot removal. Basically, the effort needs to be there.

Vacuuming Your Carpeting

At least once or twice a week, you need to vacuum the carpet in your home. In the high foot traffic areas, regular vacuuming will pick up the sharp soil that’s been dragged in your house, the same type of soil that can severe damage to the carpet fibers.

Professional Carpet Cleaning

While you don’t need to hire professional carpet cleaners every week, you should have them come at least once a year, but if you have a lot of high traffic areas, you may need them to come more frequently. There are some stain resistant warranties that require professional carpet cleaning be done on the carpeting every two years. When you hire a reliable carpet cleaning service like us at A1A Extreme Green, our equipment will be able to pick up the grime that your standard vacuum can’t achieve.

Protective Carpet Coating

There is a protective coating available that some newer carpeting comes installed with. However, this coating will wear off every two to three years, so you’ll want to have your professional carpet cleaning service reapply it to ensure that it’s done properly. Common carpet coatings include 3M Scotchgard, and Dupont Teflon. Both of them are soil resistors that will make it easier for vacuums to pick up dirt.
