If you’ve bought a home or a business and replaced the carpeting, you’re probably aware that the average life span of carpeting is about 10 years. With the substantial investment you’ve made it only makes sense to stretch it as far as possible! Each home or business will find the time for replacement varies with the amount of foot traffic and other factors such as pets, small children, or smokers in the home. With regularly scheduled carpet cleaning services, your Aurora, CO, home or business can keep the carpet looking newer longer.
Tips on how to keep that carpet protected and looking great between professional carpet cleanings include:
- Door Mats or Entry Mats – The simplest and most effective way to keep entry ways, common areas, or high traffic areas clean are mats placed in each area. A good rule of thumb is that a mat should be about three strides long to capture dirt and moisture
- Vacuuming – One of the most important and overlooked chores is regular vacuuming. Did you know each manufacturer of carpeting has recommended times on how often you should be vacuuming per week? Most of the major brands recommend 2 times per week, but that should be increased if you have small children, pets, or smokers in the home. A human sheds 1 million skin cells per hour. Combine that with soil, dust, and insects. The buildup in your carpeting can be adding up! You sure don’t want to be walking on, laying on, or breathing that in daily! Make sure you’re using a vacuum with up-to-date HEPA filters, and don’t forget to clean the baseboard area
- Spot Cleaning – Removing spills and spots as quickly as possible helps prevent them from setting into the fibers. It shouldn’t be an alternative to professional carpet cleaning, but a measure to keep the carpet from developing discoloration or even worse, having to replace the entire carpeted area
- Restorative Deep Carpet Cleaning – Our deep cleaning systems use equipment and solutions that extract residues, soils, and allergens. With our hot water extraction methods, we draw out dirt, oils, and other filth from your carpeting, leaving it restored and refreshed. Depending on the size of your home or building, we can customize a plan for carpeting cleaning that’s right for you
