Are you concerned with the look of your carpet? You should know that the elegance as well as life of your carpet solely depends on how well you maintain it (of course, assuming it is a quality carpet). Carpet that is regularly maintained can and should last for about 10 to 15 years (some even longer). Proper cleaning will not only prolong the life of your carpet and protect your wallet as you will not need to replace it before its time, but will also keep it looking fresh, new and comfy. A carpet cleaning accents the room and adds warmth and comfort to the entire home.
Especially vulnerable to wear and stubborn stains are carpets exposed to high traffic areas such as living room, home office area and bedrooms. To prevent early wear, clean the carpets in these rooms with utmost care. Vacuum at least 2-3 times a week and occasionally move the furniture around. Once a week refresh carpets with this easy to make solutions with the ingredients you have in your pantry. Apple vinegar and baking soda are perfect for removing any odor and stains. Let’s start with apple vinegar which super great for water damage. Mix a cup of apple vinegar with one liter of water (if you want to add fresh lemon juice or few drops of essential oil to minimize the smell of vinegar). Spray and gently rub the solution with a cotton cloth, let it sit for 15-30 minutes and then vacuum.
Another way to quickly refresh your carpets is by using the good old baking soda. Perfect for cakes and teeth whitening, this universal ingredient will do wonders for your carpets as it will deodorize and super clean them at the same time. Sprinkle baking soda over your carpet, let it sit for about 15 minutes (leave on for about half an hour if you have pets) and then vacuum thoroughly. Maintaining your carpets is not as hard as you thought. All it takes are a quality vacuum and few cleaning solutions which you can either buy in a store or prepare at home. Try to opt for more Eco-friendly solutions to minimize the presence of hazardous chemicals in your home. Of course, for stubborn stains use a quality cleaning solution which is specifically designed to break any hard soil buildup or hire carpet cleaning company. Their technicians are trained and have all required expertise to handle even the most hard-to-clean stains.
