How to Keep your Carpet Clean

Written by 

Regular carpet cleaning should be done because its fibers have been designed in a way that can hide soil and also can reflect light. The ability of carpet fiber to hide soil is a common feature among most carpets however this is not the only agent affecting the cleanliness of the carpet. Soil is the common agent affecting the cleanliness of the carpet and if allowed to pile up then it can damage the fibers.

Cleaning a carpet extends its life and also improves its appearance.

One of the best methods to clean carpets is by the use of vacuum cleaning. This involves the use of a vacuum to remove dust from the carpet. It effectively removes soil particles and also reduces the dust generating from the filter and around the machine into a smaller fraction hence keeping your carpet in a good condition and also looking good. Vacuuming however does not remove the stubborn or embedded soil particles and therefore restorative cleaning must be done to control these stubborn stains.

In order to have a good control of your carpet condition then professional services should be done before the carpet get dirty or begin to show soil.

Cleaning methods varies depending on the type of fiber used to design a carpet. For synthetic fiber, cleaning agents are used especially for strain-resistant carpet and directions for dilution and application should be followed strictly for better results. For natural fibers, they require specialized cleaning and this depends on the carpet manufacturer’s recommendations for good performance.

Wool fibers should be cleaned with neutral detergents having a pH of 5.0 to 8.0. This is because wool is easily damaged by alkalis and bleaches. Carpet made of silk fiber should be cleaned using a drying process. This is because these fibers are damaged by a high pH (>9), high temperatures and sunlight. For better performance and appearance of a carpet then regular cleaning should be done.
