Caring for your carpeting isn’t as straightforward as simply vacuuming every week. If you want your carpeting to look its best as long as possible, it’s important to follow proper maintenance practices.

The carpet cleaning professionals at On The Spot Chem-Dry in Santa Rosa, CA have compiled a list of steps to follow to properly care for your carpets and ensure they remain in great condition for years to come.

Step 1: Vacuum regularly.

Vacuuming at least once a week is essential for maintaining the appearance and freshness of your carpet. Start at the edge of your carpet and vacuum both forward and backward over each area for a deeper clean. Keep in mind that high-traffic areas may require extra attention. When vacuuming, be sure to go slowly and steadily, taking the time to suction up dirt and dust that has accumulated on your carpet. Don’t forget to pay extra attention to corners and crevices, and make sure to empty or replace your vacuum bag before it becomes full.

Step 2: Deal with spills and accidents immediately.

If you want to prevent deep stains, it’s crucial to take quick action when spills or accidents occur. Keep a white cloth or paper towels nearby to blot liquids before they soak into the carpet fibers. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the affected area, and instead gently pat it until it’s mostly dry. If there are any solid particles involved in the accident, scoop them up and then finish by vacuuming the area. Once you’ve done this, call our professional carpet cleaners in Santa Rosa to remove any remaining stains.

Step 3: Take preventative measures.

There are simple preventative measures you can take to reduce the amount of dirt and grime that is tracked into your home and onto your carpet. One option is to use two doormats – one outside and one inside – to trap dirt at the door. Another solution is to implement a no-shoes policy in your home, which can help prevent outside contaminants from coming in.

As another preventative measure, our carpet cleaners can apply a protective stain repellant to your carpets. This solution will coat carpet fibers with a professionally developed formula that gives you more time to absorb the stain-causing liquid before it can start to damage your carpet.

Step 4: Get regular professional carpet cleaning

If you want to properly maintain your carpets, it’s important to hire professional carpet cleaners. These professionals use advanced techniques to remove dirt and grime that has gotten deep into your carpet, which prevents it from becoming compacted over time.

Our Hot Carbonating Extraction process can remove traffic patterns and stains, giving your carpet a fresh look and feel and protecting its lifespan by removing the dust and dander that can wear down its fibers. We recommend having your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year, or every 6 months if you have kids or pets.
