It’s time for that annual spring-cleaning spree! Before you dive right in, let’s take a look at those springing cleaning chores one by one, starting with your area rugs and carpets. Thanks to their everyday use, they are prone to serious wear and tear. With proper care, however, you can keep your carpets looking fresh and beautiful for years!
Some Basic Facts
According to Tidy Mom, approximately 80% of the dirt attracted in your house comes from… feet. Bacteria are able to live after four weeks on the carpet, so your carpets may be seven times dirtier than a city street! With that being said, you definitely want to consider vacuuming at least once a week. In areas of your house where traffic is heavy, you should vacuum more frequently. Check out Tidy Mom’s website for a perfect spring cleaning checklist. You need to be sure you tend to your carpet’s stains as soon as possible in order to keep the stains from sticking to your rug’s fibers.

Professional cleaning types
Which detergent is right for your carpet cleaning will depend on the type of carpet you have in your home. Consult with a registered professional beforehand, as one wrong detergent can ruin your carpets.
2. Steam Cleaning
This is the most effective form of deep cleaning out there. Mist is sprayed on your carpet in sections, loosening the dirt. After that, an immediate vacuum over the section should take place; this prevents over-wetting and the carpet will dry quickly.
3. Dry Cleaning
This type of cleaning also requires a professional consultation. While a dry absorbent is worked into your carpet using a machine, attracting and absorbing the dirt, you should check to make sure which cleaning compound is better suited for your carpet.
