Carpet / April 14, 2018 / Anita Griffith
Once you have the machine of your choice, there are some cleaning tips you should be sure to follow. Before using the machine you will want to move out all the furniture and do a thorough vacuuming. It is a good idea to also spot clean any stains that might be present. Once you have cleaned the room you don't want anyone walking on the floor until it is fully dry, which will take a number of hours, so plan accordingly. After you have finished, make sure to vacuum regularly and treat spots as soon as they occur to keep the carpet in good condition.
Prevention. First of all, you should try your level best to prevent problems from arising in the first place. For instance, if it is an area rug, make sure you and your kids remove their boots prior to stepping on it. Aside from this, food and drinks should also be kept away from the rug area if possible. Usually pets love to sleep on doormats, but make sure they do not. Instead, you should train your pets to make use of cats/dogs beds. Moreover, if your rug is expensive or decorative, it's not a good idea to spread it around an area where there is a lot of traffic. Ideally, you can place it in a doorway that people don't use very often. Make sure you don't put them in the main gate as this area gets a lot of traffic.
