Is your house riddled with stubborn spots and stains? Start thinking about carpet protection before you have a guest spill a glass of red wine on your carpet or your kids drop a slice of pizza on the sofa. You’ve invested a lot into your home and no one likes to see a beloved piece of furniture go because it got a difficult stain. Over the years we have compiled some tips to help prevent stains, we hope that they can help you maintain a clean and healthy home.
Leave Your Shoes Outside
Dirty shoes are one of the most common ways that a home gets dirty. While the effects of dirty shoes typically aren’t noticed immediately, the dirt and grime gets embedded into your carpet and quickly takes away the value you have built into your home. By simply removing your shoes before entering your home you can dramatically reduce the amount of stains you will encounter.
Prepare for a Defensive Attack
Carpet stain protection is made easy with carpet protectant. If you have never used carpet protectant, you are wasting way too much time and energy removing spots and stains. Carpet protectant temporarily shields your carpet fibers from stains and spots, giving you more time to clean them. It works to reduce the effects of stains and can dramatically increase the life of your carpet and furniture. Most carpets are sold with a mild protectant on it, but it doesn’t last long. We recommend getting protectant reapplied at least every six months in order to keep your home looking its best.
Clean Regularly with Vacuuming
Vacuuming is a great way to prevent stains and maintain a healthy home. If built-up dirt is allowed to remain on the carpet, it easily becomes embedded in the fabric and will be much more difficult to remove. By maintaining a routine vacuuming schedule you will be able to get rid of the hair, dirt, and dust. Overall, by following this tip you will be able to preserve your carpet and furniture and save money in the long run.
