Simple Tips for Cleaner Carpets

Spring cleaning is right around the corner, and ServiceMaster is here to help with their extensive cleaning services. But spring doesn’t have to be the only time of year your carpet looks its best. Try these simple tips to keep your carpet looking great between deep cleans.

  1. Keep It Covered.
    Use mats on high traffic areas such as entryways. This will cut down on the amount of dirt tracked inside and help protect your carpet from wear.
  2. Don’t wait.
    Clean up spills as soon as they happen to prevent staining.
  3. Vacuum.
    Vacuuming high traffic areas on a daily basis will increase the life of your carpet. Less frequented areas should be vacuumed at least twice a week. Protecting your carpet from buildup of dirt and debris will keep it looking better and lasting longer.
  4. Make Yourself at Home.
    Ask your family and guests to take off their shoes upon entering your home. This will eliminate a large amount of dirt that would otherwise be tracked in by shoes.
  5. Common Carpet Catastrophes.
    Avoid keeping certain common household products that contain stain-causing chemicals near your carpet. Some of these carpet culprits include cosmetics, household cleaners and some medications.
