Top 4 Carpet Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

Testimonials

We needed one room carpeted. Checked this place out and liked it! Price was highly competitive.

Ordered the carpet on a Wednesday and they came out the following Monday to do the install. The installation crew did a great job!

Very pleased & would highly recommend to anyone needing a remnant or wall to wall carpeting. They sell more than just remnants. Very simple process!

Don't waste your time at the big box stores or with gimmicky carpet sales people.

Top 4 Carpet Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

carpet cleaning tips

When it comes to housework, carpet cleaning has earned a permanent spot on the weekend to-do list. Whether you have young children, pets, or high foot traffic, dirt and stains will inevitably show up on your carpet. These stains are ugly and possibly odorous, and many homeowners agree that removing carpet stains is anything but easy.

At Remnant King Carpets, we understand carpet cleaning issues. Over the last thirty years of working in the carpet industry, we have answered countless questions regarding home carpet cleaning and the most stain resistant flooring styles. With these questions in mind, we have compiled a few of the best carpet cleaning tips. In addition, we have included some of the best carpet styles for resisting stain and wear for your future flooring purchases.

Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming may seem obvious, but many homeowners don’t know how often they should break out the trusty Hoover. Generally, you should vacuum at least once a week. This will prevent particle build-up that cuts into the carpet fibers, ultimately extending the life of your carpet. If your vacuum has a crevice tool attachment, remember to use it on the hard-to-reach sections of carpet, such as stair edges and around baseboards. Also, don’t neglect areas of the carpet where people frequently sit or stand. The heavy traffic areas will take more time and effort to clean effectively.

Clean Stains Immediately

If someone spills a drink or walks on your floor with muddy shoes, do not hesitate to clean up the stain. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to clean the stain. Make sure that the cleaning solution will not cause a stain of its own or damage the carpet. It is a good idea to double check the cleaning agent’s website to ensure its effectiveness on your carpet style. After you apply the cleaner, be sure to blot the stain, not rub. Rubbing may cause the stain to become worse or spread.

Deep Clean Your Carpet

Eventually, time will take its toll and you will have to deep clean your carpet. While some homeowners choose to hire a professional for this task, there are rental cleaners for DUI enthusiasts. If you prefer DUI methods, there are a few things to keep in mind before and during a deep carpet clean. First, as with spot stain solutions, make sure that the cleaning agent you’re using will not harm your carpet. Test it out on a hidden patch to make sure. Next, remove as much furniture as you can and vacuum well before shampooing. Finally, using single, light strokes, use the machine to clean your carpet.

Note: Be sure to read the instructions that come with the machine rental! The last thing you want is damaged carpet.

Purchase a Stain Resistant Carpet

The best way to keep your carpets clean is to install a durable, stain resistant carpet style. After all, preparation and foresight are always better than repair. The best carpet style for preventing stains is wool. It is effective in the battle against both liquids and oils, and it will look great long after other carpets succumb to wear and stain. Nylon carpet is another good choice, though it is not as resistant to oils as wool.
