Carpets receive constant foot traffic. This is one reason why they go through the most wear and tear over years of use. There are multiple things that can go wrong with carpets, pet paw prints, coffee, and wine spillage, muddy shoes, etc, can deteriorate even the best quality carpets without a professional carpet cleaning service.

Now, you may wonder, why should one buy carpets when they require avid cleaning? Why not stick with plain flooring options? This is because homeowners love the warmth and cosiness that carpets provide relative to the hardwood flooring.

To keep your carpet intact, you need to constantly vacuum and invest in professional deep cleaning. But, even if you hire the best cleaning service in town, your carpet can easily deteriorate with water splashes, wine spillage, and other related accidents.

However, if you follow a good maintenance routine, you do not need to worry about your carpet deteriorating. Here are our pro-tips:

1. Vacuum at least once a week

Even though investing in an expensive, advanced, and high-tech vacuum cleaner is not a complete solution to your carpet maintenance needs, but it can do wonders to extend the carpet’s lifespan. You need to vacuum your carpet at least once every week.

But, make sure you clean and empty out the vacuum’s filters otherwise, the vacuum’s efficiency will severely be hampered.

2. Shake the position of the carpet

Constant foot traffic can at times be a lot for your carpet to handle. Certain positions on the carpet will receive more foot traffic than the other areas. As a result, the stomped areas will begin to appear faded and flattened.

To counteract this, it is smart to regularly shift the orientation and the position of your carpet so that every area on the carpet remains at an equal level. Try adjusting the room’s settings after every four months and do a regular deep carpet cleanup.

3. Clean your carpet using the baking soda

A carpet that always appears fresh is not the goal here. AIt should smell good too. You can do this by spraying baking soda evenly on the surface of your carpet prior to vacuuming it. You will be amazed by how good your carpet will smell.

For rough areas, try leaving the baking soda on your carpet for 15 minutes before vacuuming it.

4. Keep an emergency cleaning kit with you

One of the worse nightmares of any homeowner is carpet stains. If they are not treated immediately, the stains can become permanent and even begin smelling bad after some time.

Always keep a handy stain removing kit or liquid in your house for a quick stain removing solution in case of spillage and accidents. You can even go for home remedies; using baking soda, shaving cream, etc, are also effective in removing stains from carpets.

5. Even your carpet needs trimming

Never pull out any loose fabric or thread ends from your carpet, they may disrupt the entire weaving of your carpet. What you should do instead is trim the loose edges with a pair of scissors rather than pulling them off from the weave.

If you own pets, you must particularly keep an eye out for loose tufts and the claws of the pets that can easily pull out the tufts from the carpet’s weaving.

6. Routine is the key

Once again, we cannot emphasize enough that even with the best cleaning equipment, your carpet will deteriorate over time. One way to handle this is by following a strict routine and not staying away from it.

Once in a while, hire a professional cleaner for a deep carpet cleaning to get rid of all that dirt and grime that gets trapped inside. Such items are hard to remove with a vacuum cleaner and the use of proper equipment can help in this regard.

Bonus Tip: Use shaving cream in case of emergency

Did you know that even the top carpet cleaners say that the best stain remover in the market is the regular shaving cream. Shaving cream can quickly get rid of any type of stain, even the most stubborn ones.

Simply put some shaving cream on the stain and let it stay there for half an hour.  Once the cream hardens, use a clean cloth to wipe it off.  In the end, make a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar and spray it on the affected area for a complete carpet cleanup.
