As your Anchorage upholstery care providers and carpet cleaners, we at Warren & Son Carpet Cleaning want you to know that having a clean carpet isn’t solely about making sure that your home looks great. Many people actually don’t know that if you have a dirty carpet, you’re more likely to develop an illness. Due to mold that can fester in uncleaned carpets, a person can potentially be affected with asthma, allergies, skin problems and many other illnesses. To help prevent these illnesses, we’ve provided you with a list of things to do to help keep your carpet clean and keep you from getting sick.
Use a Doormat
One of the simplest and easiest ways to help prevent acquiring any illnesses from your carpet is by using a doormat. By placing doormats at the entrances of your home, they’ll be able to keep dirt from getting tracked into your home and all over your carpet.
Clean Up Spills Immediately
If you happen to spill something on your carpet, clean up the stain as soon as possible. This will make the stain less likely to sink into your carpet and it will reduce the bacteria that will accumulate. Also, make sure that when you clean the stain up, blot it out instead of rubbing it in; just place a bit of pressure on the stain so that the towel or napkin will soak up the stain.
One of the most vital things you can do for your carpet is to vacuum it often. While the frequency recommended varies among professionals, vacuuming twice a week is generally considered an acceptable amount. When you vacuum, you should also use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. These HEPA filters are much better at removing dirt from carpets.
Get Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned
No matter how often you vacuum your carpet, it’s important for you to get it professionally cleaned once every year as well. A professional carpet cleaner will be able to deliver better results that you just won’t get from a traditional vacuum cleaner. At Warren & Son Carpet Cleaning, our Anchorage carpet cleaning will touch up and even fix and repair your carpet to ensure that it will last as long as possible.
