Your Carpet: Clean, Fresh, & Looking New

2/6/2018 (Permalink)

Cleaning Your Carpet: Clean, Fresh, & Looking New Carpets tend to "swallow" everything that falls on them and become dirty before you can notice the dirt. That's why you need professional cleaners.

Your carpet looks cleaner than it is. It’s hard to see the dirt, dust, spills, and other debris that gets trapped in your carpet because it sinks toward the carpet bottom. Carpets act like filters. They tend to “swallow” or entrap whatever falls on them. The good news is that simple actions can keep your carpet clean, fresh, and looking new.

How To Make Your Carpet Last Longer

Just about all carpet manufacturers agree on what you can do between carpet cleanings to increase your carpet’s life span and keep it clean, fresh, and good-looking.

You know that vacuuming is a number one component to proper care and maintenance of your carpet. But carpet manufacturers also recommend:


•    Pilating your carpet (this prevents matting)
•    Removing spots
•    Moving furniture to change traffic patterns and even out carpet wear and tear
•    Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto your carpet
•    Hiring a professional cleaner every year or so

SERVPRO of Manchester/Mansfield can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need our professional carpet cleaners service depends on soil build-up, traffic, and the type and color of your carpeting. Most people find it wise to professionally clean their carpet every 12 months.

Clean Before You See The Dirt

One tip is to clean your carpet before you can easily notice any dirt or soiling. People who wait until their carpet looks dirty frequently find they can never restore their carpet to its former appearance.

And did you know that dirt builds up in your carpet in layers? When your carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. Much more dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile. The deeper the dirt, the more the damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.
