Normally vacuuming is done to remove dust, dirty on day to day basis. Let’s start this article on carpet cleaning tips.
However this is not something this article is going to end on just carpet cleaning.
Lets read all sort of guidelines on how to remove the dust, dirty, removing stains, and dealing with various other problems for your home and office carpet cleaning.
Let’s start with the basics first.
Your carpets should be vacuumed at least every 2 days a week and the high traffic areas should be vacuumed on a daily basis.
Frequent vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet by preventing a buildup of gritty particles that can cut carpet fibers. Use nozzles or hand-tool for the corners, landings, hallways and staircases as this is where the most dust and dirt will built up
Every few weeks, take a little extra time and use your crevice tool for cleaning around baseboards and radiators and in other hard-to-reach places. It is really important as normally these areas get quite dusty a lot and cleaning these areas can help reduce the dust and dirt in your commercial or residential property in general.
To vacuum wall-to-wall carpeting, divide the floor into quadrants and vacuum an entire quadrant before moving on to the next, this normally tip is very handy for mid-sized and large homes as well as office carpets and industrial and commercial units. However not many people or maids or cleaning firms follow these steps and this is why once you clean the carpets, you will normally feel that carpets still look dirty, if you follow the above tip you are going to get most dust sucked and it will help improve and increase the length of your carpets life.
Take your time when you vacuum a carpet, be deep and detailed, especially a plush carpet in which dirt is sure to be deeply embedded, we normally suggest our on-going and regular customers with double-clean. Double clean is an easy process, say vacuum the carpet twice than just once. One pass with a high-powered upright is not enough. Go over each section of carpeting several times, and work slowly to allow the suction to remove all the ground-in dust and dirt.
Pay special attention to the areas where people sit and move their feet say closer to the arm chairs, sofas, rugs etc. This also includes entrance and exit floor matts be it nylon, plastic or carpeted. Vacuum these areas of heavy traffic with a crisscross pattern of overlapping strokes.
Soil retardants or scotch-guard can be applied to new carpets or to newly cleaned carpets. Follow manufacturers’ advice. Apply soil retardants only with professional equipment using the recommended application techniques. Your best bet is either speaking to your carpet manufacturer or the place you bought your carpets from. You can also get in touch with your local carpet cleaning company for free advice and tips
Add baking soda to the bag in your vacuum to fight odours. But before doing so, it is suggested that you check with your carpet manufacturer or read the label on the carpet’s if any.
