We provide in-depth industry knowledge with unparalleled service and gentle, environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. In this article, we will walk you through five ways to maintain your carpets after a professional carpet cleaning.

Be Patient, Let The Carpets Dry

The first step to maintaining your carpets after professional carpet cleaning services is to be patient. When your carpet cleaning service tells you how long it will take for the carpets to dry, they mean it. Do not walk on the carpets or move the furniture back before the recommended drying period. This can cause immediate damage and soil your carpets up by collecting all the debris through the leftover moisture. Always allow the carpet to fully dry before trying to move anything across it. 

Remove Your Outside Shoes and Use House Shoes, Socks, or Slippers

One of the fastest ways to ruin a carpet is to walk across it with the shoes that you wear outside – for obvious reasons. Not only can you pick up dirt or mud, but your shoes can also carry other contaminants from outside that you might not even be aware of. Removing your outside shoes at the door is a must for maintaining a professionally cleaned appearance of your carpets longer. 

This does not mean that it is ideal to go barefoot either. Did you know that the oils from your skin can also cause significant wear to the carpet and make it wear down faster? To avoid this problem, use house shoes, slippers, or wear socks. This will ensure that your feet are happy and your carpets stay clear and clean as long as possible. 

Use Door Mats

We understand that it is not always possible to avoid walking across the floor with shoes on completely, especially in carpeted entrances. This is where doormats come in handy. If you have a carpeted entrance or simply a high traffic area that you notice a lot of wear and tear in, doormats can save your carpets from a lot of unnecessary damage. 

Address Accidents Immediately

Accidents happen but not all accidents require a carpet cleaning service to maintain. For simple spills, address the accident immediately. Start by blotting the area with a dry towel, then apply a carpet cleaner and follow the instructions appropriately. This can help your carpets stay looking fresh and stain-free. 

Vacuum Regularly

Finally, vacuum regularly. It is recommended that carpets be vacuumed at least once a week to maintain a healthy and beautiful environment. 

With these five tips, you are sure to have a professional carpet cleaning last you all year long.
