Clever Carpet Maintenance Tips!
The best ways to clean rugs and upholstery! Additional info below! Find out how to clean rugs, how to protect them from water and the sun, and how to store and maintain them.
How to maintain carpets
The basic rule to keep carpets clean is vacuuming but this is not sufficient for fundamental sanitizing and you will need more drastic measures for home carpet cleaning. If you have Persian rugs, it's good to keep them in the open air for a few hours twice every year and you must never forget mildew inspection. Carpet Cleaning Hollywood recommends stain removal as soon as possible.
How to improve the looks of tiles
Ceramic tile cleaning is a rather easy process because tiles are highly resistant to water. Though, most dirt is gathered in the grouts since they are absorbent and grout cleaning can be really hard. The best solution is sealing grout to keep dirt and moisture from penetrating the material because in sensitive, highly moisturized rooms like kitchens and especially bathrooms you may find mold.
Always remember to vacuum
Carpet owners are advised to vacuum their carpets every now and then to maintain them. Dirt can stick deep into the carpet’s fibers, which will be much harder to remove and can cause damage to the carpet itself. Vacuuming at least twice every week helps remove this dirt before they become a bigger problem.
Avoid bringing food and drinks close to the carpet
Food and drinks are among the top causes of carpet stains. This is why our specialists strongly discourage eating or drinking around carpeted areas, or at least be very careful when going around the carpeted area of your home when you have food and drinks with you.
Run a cleaning-solution test
Never dump a cleaning solution directly on the carpet without running a test first. Not all products in the carpet are safe for you or the carpet, and will likely cause discoloration or thinning of the fibers. So before using a cleaning solution, test it on an inconspicuous area first, one that can be easily covered up should damage occur.
Do not allow the water solution to form pools when cleaning tile floors
When the pools dry, they can leave nasty marks which are challenging to remove. Squeeze the mop sufficiently before mopping. It should not drip. If you notice pools forming, you need to blot the solution right away.
