Are you one of the thousands of people who have decided to welcome a soft surface flooring into your home? If so, you'll want to read through our Bixby Plaza Carpets and Flooring cleaning advice guide for soft surface fibers, to make sure your flooring stays as lovely as the day it was brought through your front door. In Orange County, carpet cleaning is a must, assuming you want to keep your indoor environment healthy and clean! Without further ado, let's check out these handy tips, brought to you by our on-site Huntington Beach and Los Alamitos showroom experts:
Opt for Fibers That Don't Attract Dust
Some materials attract dust, while others repel it. When you're choosing the right flooring, consider picking a surface that's not such a dust magnet. All-natural wool is a great option, for example. Also, keep in mind that the higher the pile, the more dust, mites, and allergens it will entrap. Yuck!
Vacuum Once a Week
With soft surfacing, you'll need to vacuum at least once a week, even more often if you have pets. Between deep steam carpet cleanings, Orange County folks should stick to a strict schedule to avoid an unhealthy indoor environment, especially if some household members suffer from asthma or allergies. In high-traffic areas, or places where pets frequent, increase the amounts of vacuuming to eliminate the presence of abrasive dust particles and allergens.
Here's a tip straight from the soft flooring experts: Vacuum slowly. Often, people want to get the whole vacuuming thing out of the way because, really, who actually enjoys vacuuming? However, when you move around too fast, you're not letting the machine work optimally. Slow down, allow the vacuum to vibrate on the surfacing to loosen trapped particles for maximum suction efficiency.
Steam Clean Once or Twice a Year
Typically, the minimum amount of deep steam cleaning for Orange County carpets is once a year, though the recommended amount is twice a year. Again, your goal should be to reduce allergens inside the home, because you want to keep the quality of air as clean and healthy as possible.
