At Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring, our Huntington Beach and Los Alamitos, CA showroom professionals answer a great many questions regarding how to prolong the life of soft surfacing, and without a doubt, at the top of the list, is carpet cleaning. Huntington Beach and Orange County homeowners need to be especially vigilant because of dry, dusty weather conditions, something that can be quite problematic. But, don’t worry, with the following few suggestions, we’ll help you protect your investment, and keep that soft surfacing in tip top shape!
Maintain a Regular Carpet Cleaning Schedule
First, if you have soft surfacing, it’s very important to maintain a regular vacuuming schedule, regardless of how old the fibers may be. Now, that doesn’t mean that you’ll be sticking to the same schedule for the entire house. Basically, keep track of foot traffic for every section of your home, and vacuum accordingly. So, for example, your entryway and halls may need vacuuming 2-3 times of week, since it gets a lot of walk-through, while your bedroom may only need to be addressed once a week.
Aside from vacuuming, it’s essential to take care of liquid and food spills immediately, so they don’t set in and turn into stains. However, should a stain occur, do take the time to use an appropriate product for your surfacing to eliminate it. Whatever you do, don’t try to hide the stain by placing furniture or a potted plant over it, that won’t solve your problem! In fact, it can make the matter worse as your actions may result in the growth of mold, then you’ll have a serious problem on your hands.
Keep Orange County Carpets Fresh, Call the Experts!
And of course, if you have soft surfacing, make sure to call in the experts for a deep shampoo and professional extraction, to ensure the fibers are thoroughly dried 2-3 times a year. Again, if you have a busy household with pets and kids that run around and tend to make a mess, then you’ll likely need a professional team 3-4 times a year.
