CARPET CLEANING TIPS

Your carpet will last for years, and with the right care and maintenance, you’ll be able to keep it looking new and extend its life.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR CARPET

Cleaning your carpet is easier than you think. All it takes is the right vacuum, cleaning products, and a little know-how. Here are a few tips on removing common stains the right way:

Always treat the affected area immediately. The longer the spill sits there, the harder it’ll be to remove the stain.

For a food spill, gently remove as much solid material as you can with a spoon, or a dull knife. Add water and blot, using detergent sparingly if needed. Then, using the highest suction function, vacuum back and forth, adding more water to the stain as you go until completely clean.

If you need a spot removal solvent, use a product approved by The Carpet. Apply several drops to a clean white cloth and blot the carpet in an inconspicuous area. If you notice a change in the carpet color, contact the carpet cleaning company.

If stains remain after cleaning, moisten tufts in the stained area with 3% hydrogen peroxide and let stand for one hour. Blot and repeat until completely clean.

KEEPING YOUR CARPET BEAUTIFUL

Follow these simple tips to keep your carpet’s color and texture looking fresh.

Vacuum your carpet regularly to prevent soil from embedding itself in the pile.

Depending on the type of carpet you have, you’ll want to use a vacuum with a rotating brush, a beater bar, or suction only (We are experts in Carpet cleaning in Winnipeg with more than a decade experience).

Keeping traffic and other use factors in mind, consider professional carpet cleaning every 12 to18 months.

Use scissors to clip sprouts and snags. Don’t pull on them—you might damage the carpet.

If your carpet is burned, simply remove the tops of the dark, burnt fibers with curved fingernail scissors. If the burn is extensive, you may need to patch or replace it.

Remove heavy furniture dents by stroking the dented area with the edge of a coin. You can also use a hair dryer or a steam iron, but be very careful not to touch the carpet with the iron.

For extensive water damage, consult professional carpet cleaners to dry your carpet from the front and back.

TIPS FOR SOFT CARPET

Adjustable Height – Use the highest setting where appropriate.

Efficient Airflow – Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction.

Large Wheels – A vacuum with large wheels is easier to move across soft carpeting.
