When you enter a home, the first thing that you notice is how clean the place is. You may not have a huge flat screen TV, luxurious couch or super-expensive décor items to glam up your home, but you can still create a lasting impression by just keeping your home clean. When you get down to do the dirty work, a right place for you to start would be the carpet. Your carpet is a comfortable place for bacteria, crowding with millions of viruses that will take you down if you don’t clean it first. Here are some of the most fool-proof ways to give your carpet a long life:
Take preventive steps
Rather than breaking your back cleaning the carpet it pays to be a little careful and save yourself the hard work later. Here is are the best practices you need to consider: Avoid wearing shoes indoors, vacuum your carpet regularly and in the case of stains clean it up immediately. Invest in good door mats, so that people can scrub clean the dirt off of their boots before they enter. This way, you can reduce the rate at which your carpet gets dirty, hence prevent the need to keep on cleaning it now and then. Besides, this way, your carpet can stay longer, as you won’t damage the fibre by scrubbing your carpet now and then.
