Fall is upon us. That means cooler weather, falling leaves, and thoughts of the holidays that are ahead. The carpets in your home are bound to take a beating with the increased foot traffic they will receive. Luckily, there are steps you can take to prepare your carpets this fall and get them ready for the holiday season. Orange County Steam Masters list some below.
Carpet Cleaning Under Beds & Furniture
When was the last time you moved the furniture around? It’s easier to just clean around that big sectional, right? While the carpet that lays under your furniture doesn’t see as much dirt and grime as other areas, it will still get dirty over time. It’s important to move the furniture in your home even if seems like a daunting task. Move it so you expose all the carpeting underneath it and then vacuum it with slow, gentle sweeping motions. If you happen to discover any stains, you should remove them with a gentle solution.
Carpet Deodorizer to Neutralize Odors
Does your carpet smell a bit musty? You can get rid of musty odors by sprinkling some baking soda across it and allowing it to soak in the odors for a couple of hours and then vacuum. If that doesn’t work, you will need to call in the professionals. Lingering odors are no match for professional steam cleaning and there are steps that can be taken to eliminate odors that are particularly stubborn.
Area Rugs Carpet Protector
Protective rugs are a great way to prevent added foot traffic from wreaking havoc on your carpets. The best areas to protect are entrances to your home, living rooms, and dining rooms. You should also place protective rugs in any rooms that you anticipate more activity. Your carpets will be easier to clean after the holidays and they’ll last longer too.
Wearing House Shoes or Slippers on Carpet
If you want your guests to remove their shoes you will need to have a convenient place for them to put them when they enter your home. If you don’t mind shoes being worn in your home, you will need to place a thick and abrasive rug at your front door so your guests can brush debris off their shoes before entering your home. This will reduce the amount of stains and damage your carpet will receive.
Schedule Professional Steam Carpet Cleaning Services
Even if your carpet looks clean it might be deceiving you. I mean you’ve been walking around all summer with bare feet. How dirty can they be? Your skin is covered with natural oils that quickly transfer to the carpet fibers. This can lead to discoloration and will attract dirt and grime that can create stains. Schedule cleaning to make your home will be more inviting, and to protect your carpets.
