It’s inevitable: over the summer, there will be a long stretch without rain. When this happens, it can take a toll on your carpets. You, your family, and your pets all track in dust and dirt that collects in the fibers of your carpets.
Become A Shoes-Off Home
While it’s impossible to keep dirt from entering your home completely, taking off your shoes before you enter can go a long way. Post a cute reminder sign at the door and have a place for guests to set their shoes. This new habit may take some getting used to, but it’s well worth it for the difference it will make in the cleanliness of your carpets.
Remember, it’s important to take your shoes off whether they’re visibly dirty or not. If you’re not used to walking around your house barefoot, keep some cozy socks or slippers right next to the door.
Vacuum Regularly — And Do It Right
You know that it’s important to vacuum regularly, but the way you vacuum can make a massive difference in the life and cleanliness of your carpets.
Follow these tips to ensure that your carpets are cleaned correctly:
- Clean your vacuum regularly. You don’t have to get in there with a scrub brush, but you’ll want to make sure that the bristles of your vacuum are free of hair, dirt, carpet fibers, and other debris.
- Vacuum in multiple directions. While this increases your vacuuming time slightly, it gets your carpets far cleaner than simply vacuuming in one direction.
- If you have a visible stain on your carpet, don’t wait — take care of it as soon as possible. The longer it sits, the harder it will be to remove.
