Today Carpet Care 2000 will offer helpful tips on how to keep your carpets clean during the winter. This way you can help eliminate some of the problems that come with cold weather and spending more time indoors.
Clean Outdoor Space Clean
You should make sure that your porch, patio, garage, or any area that you come into your home from the outside is cleaned. You should sweep or shovel the leaves or snow away from the doors of your home. This will help prevent dirt, mud, debris, and leaves from getting inside. If the place by your doors is messy you will quickly realize that the inside of your house and your carpet can get dirty quickly also.
Take Shoes Off Inside House
The best thing to keep your home and your carpet cleaner are to remove your shoes. When outside all that mud and dirt can get on your shoes and you may not even realize that your shoes are dirty. When you walk inside your home without taking your shoes off all of that mud and dirt will rub onto the carpet making the carpet dirty and adding extra wear and tear.
Door Mats Help Keep Dirt Out
Inside and outside mats can help reduce the amount of mud and dirt that gets in your home. Make sure you wipe your feet and encourage anyone who enters your home to wipe their feet on the mat outside and the one inside before coming in and going onto your carpet. It will also be helpful if you have hallways or any area of your home that is high traffic to put runners down. This will help the wear and tear on your carpet.
Vacuum Carpet Often
Vacuuming your carpets often in the winter can help keep them clean. Once a week depending on what type of home you have. If you have kids and pets you may want to vacuum more frequently. In the winter it is cold, so most people don’t go outside as often. This means there is more dead skin, more dust, more grime, and more dirt coming into your home than before. Frequently vacuuming can help keep these things limited and your carpets cleaner.
Spot Clean Carpet Stains
If you have kids or pets, you know stains can happen on your carpet. Because it is winter time and you are staying inside more those stains can be more frequent. If there is a spill try to clean it up immediately it will help prevent stains from happening. If you do find a stain you can try and clean it. Often when things are spilled, they can be sticky which means all of that dirt or mud that can get in your home can stick to that sticky stain on your carpet.
