Professional cleaning is a must; in fact, many warranties stipulate that it needs to be done at least every 12 to 18 months. That is not to say, however, that you don’t need to do anything in between professional treatments!
Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring of Orange County will give you some suggestions on keeping your carpets in tip-top shape for a long time.
First, say the experts at Bixby, understand that carpet cleaning is especially important when you think of lifestyle.
Here, it’s athletic so you’ll hike, bike and play sports, such as volleyball on the beach. Orange County is also near water, so it’s easy to track in moisture from wet dirt on the soles of your shoes.
Not only that, but you need to think about air pollution from those all-so-well-known California wildfires.
Now for That Checklist
Here’s what to do between professional carpet cleanings, Orange County.
●Don’t let dirt in! Ask people to remove their shoes before entering the house.
In fact, some homes even set up a special area where people can keep footwear outside, such as on a mat, or in a mudroom, laundry or porch.
Sand and dirt won’t just dull your carpet, but might also tear the fibers; sand is sharp, and acts like little razor blades.
●Vacuum at least once a week, but more if possible, especially in high-traffic areas. Don’t skip this step of carpet cleaning, because it gets rid of the surface dirt. That’s even more important in a place like Huntington Beach, which is known for their surf beaches.
●Spot clean. Sometimes spills or pet accidents will happen. Wipe them up immediately!
If you allow it to sit until you have it professionally cleaned, the stain can oxidize into a permanent one.
●Move furniture around. This will keep dirt from always going into the same area, so change up your layout every so often,--maybe every six months or so. Your rug will appreciate the break, and it will be a nice change of scenery for you.
