The New Homeowner’s Guide To Carpet Care

Congratulations on your new home!  You’ve just started an exciting chapter in your life.  Now that you own your own home, you’ll want to do everything you can to take care of it.  One of the best things that you can do for your home is to take care of its carpet.  By this point, you know that carpet is expensive.  It’s definitely an investment, and you want to make that investment last as long as possible. Here are a few carpet care tips that can help.

Know Your Materials

When it comes to carpet care, the first thing you should do is figure out what material your carpet is made of.  For example, most carpet these days is made of either nylon or polyester.  If you have an especially soft or shiny carpet, it may be polyester.  Wool carpet is a great organic option.  All these carpet materials have different levels of durability, stain resistance, and care needs.  If you don’t know what your carpet is made of, take some time to do a little research. Once you’ve figured it out, look up care instructions for those specific materials. It can make all the difference in making your carpets last.

Vacuum Weekly

Dirt and grime can get embedded deeply into your carpet. That’s why one of your most important carpet care tools is your vacuum cleaner. Vacuum your carpets about once a week. For high-traffic areas, you can vacuum twice a week. Take extra time on softer carpet and carpet with long fibers.  It can be tougher to get the soil out of them.

Know an Excellent Carpet Cleaner

Now is a great time to find a professional carpet cleaner.  You’ll want to have your carpet cleaned once or twice a year.  However, if you have kids or pets, you may want to have your carpet cleaned more often than that.  A professional cleaning service can go way beyond vacuum cleaning.  Regular cleaning from a pro will keep your carpet clean, safe, and healthy.  Expert Carpet Care would be happy to help.  We offer in home services while the Rug Spa takes care of their specialty.
