How to Follow a Carpet Cleaning Schedule

Right When It Happens

To maintain your floors looking great, you need to be very careful and avoid staining them as much as possible. Still, life and accidents happen. If a spill or a spot takes place, you need to act quickly and properly to remove that stain. Keep in mind that the removal method you will use will depend on the substance that was spilled. In any case, be prompt to avoid having a permanent reminder of the mishap.

Every Day

The rule of thumb is that your carpets need to be vacuumed once a week in order to remain sanitary and as free from dust and other damaging agents as possible. Still, if your whole house is carpeted, going through it can be a daunting task. To make it easier, designate one day a week to vacuum one room.  Mondays can be for the living room, and Tuesdays for the office. This way, you'll vacuum a little bit every day.

A clean carpet will remain soft, looking good, and sanitary for longer. Call Walker & Frick Construction Co. at 804 282 128 for professional carpet cleaning and property restoration in Richmond, VA.

Every Week

In the previous paragraph, you learned that to maintain your carpeting properly, you should be vacuuming it once a week (doing it more than two times can damage your carpet). This, of course, should be done ever single week. And when you do vacuum, be sure to be thorough: go over one same area slowly and in different directions. Doing so will allow you to lift the filth in the carpet better.

Once Every Month

While you should be thorough during your regular weekly vacuuming sessions, once every month you should take it a step further and go more in-depth with your carpet cleaning. To go through with it, you will first have to move the furniture around. This way, you'll be able to clean up underneath it. You should also employ the different nozzles and attachments to do as thorough a job as you can.

Every Couple of Months

The further down you go on this post, the deeper you will have to clean your carpet. Every couple of months, you should also make it a point to go even deeper and do an even more thorough clean of your carpeted floors. For one, you can sprinkle baking soda all over them to remove bad odors. Once you do, let it sit for an hour before vacuuming it away. You can also do a spot cleaning sessions with a clean, damp cloth. Just remember to let the floor dry thoroughly to avoid mold.

Once a Year

Last but not least, you should have a professional carpet cleaning company come to your house once a year to have a thorough cleaning session on your floors. They will be able to remove all of the dust, germs, and filth that your vacuum can't get rid of. By the time they leave, you will have a fresh, gorgeous, sanitary, and flawless-looking carpet that will be with you for years to come.
