Do your carpets have stains or spots on them that are an eyesore? Do you struggle to keep them looking and smelling fresh, but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for a professional carpet cleaner?

If you’re wondering how to keep your carpet looking clean and new, you’ve reached the right place. Here are some tips on keeping your carpet clean.

  1. Carpet Protection

If your carpet tends to get a lot of foot traffic, you should consider adding extra carpet protection, like an attractive rug. You will still have to regularly clean and maintain the rug itself, but cleaning a rug is a heck of a lot easier (and cheaper!) than deep cleaning your carpet.

  1. No Shoes!

Make it a habit in your home to take off your shoes as soon as you walk through the door. When people wear shoes in a home, it brings dirt into the home that ruins carpets and makes it wear faster.

  1. Vacuum Regularly

Vacuuming regularly is a great way to make sure that your carpets stay fresh and clean. It also extends a carpet’s life. We recommend that you vacuum three times a week. While vacuuming, go slowly. This will make it easier for the vacuum to easily pick up dirt and debris.

  1. Use Baking Soda Before You Vacuum

You want your carpet to look fresh and clean, but don’t you want it to smell fresh and clean as well? Here’s a pro tip: if you sprinkle a little bit of baking soda over your carpet before vacuuming and let it settle, it will help keep your carpet smelling much fresher for much longer.

  1. Deep Clean 2 Times a Year

A deep clean protects your carpets and removes odors. It is best to do it twice a year. Don’t just wait until your carpet develops stains to do a deep clean. You can call a professional to do it, or if you want to save money, you can also do it yourself.

  1. Clean Stains Right Away

As soon as a stain happens, clean it right away. The longer a stain sits, the harder it is to get it out. When cleaning stains, you should blot rather than scrub, as scrubbing can make the stain go in deeper. If the stain is a solid like mud or even food, scrape it off using a dull knife. Always deal with spills, stains, dirt as soon as they happen!
