While there will be times when you will need to enlist in a professional for cleaning services, most of the time the best carpet cleaner could actually be you. We have a few easy practices for you to get in the habit of that will reduce the likelihood of further damage and also maintain your carpet’s appeal. 

Carpet Maintenance Tips

Three Easy Ways to Keep Your Carpet Fresh and Clean 
  1. Against Humidity: Damp and humid weather can cause your carpet to ripple or buckle, leaving an uneven surface. But, when the weather dries up and humidity levels lower, you will see the ripples disappear. However, carpet buckling can also be a result of improper carpet stretching during installation, and this is permanent. In this case, you will need to bring someone in to re-stretch the carpet. 

  2. Against The Hustle and Bustle: High impacts from heavy furniture or lots of foot traffic can crush your carpet’s fibers. While every carpet will crush to a certain degree, there are ways to alleviate this and prevent further damage. When moving furniture around, use cups or gliders underneath it so you can slide the furniture easily. Moving your furniture around will also give heavy traffic areas a break, which will minimize further crushing. 

  3. Against Sunlight: Carpet and the sun are not such good friends. Sunlight can cause a carpet’s color to fade, and once that color is lost, there is no way to revive it. The best thing to do is to try and limit your carpet’s exposure to direct sunlight. You can do this by adding window treatments such as blinds or curtains to a room, and leaving them closed when you are not using the room. This will protect your carpet from ultraviolet light and will keep fading from happening!
