Carpets are a big investment. If you want to get the most out of the money you spent on yours, follow the tips in this post by Denver Cleanpro in Denver, CO to extend your flooring's lifespan.

How to Extend Your Carpet's Lifespan

Call Denver Cleanpro at 303 903 1261 if you require professional carpet cleaning in Denver, CO to care for your carpet properly.

Set Rules Around It

First things first, you need to set some rules so that you and everybody in your family can take care of your carpeting and work together to extend its lifespan as much as possible. Said rules should include taking shoes off before stepping on the carpeted floors. As you may be aware, dirt, germs, and other filth are carried around on the soles of your shoes. When you step into your carpeting with them on, you deposit all of that gunk into it. Instead, have your family members and guests take their shoes off before they enter. You can even provide slippers for them to walk on the carpeting. Likewise, if you have pets inside your home, you need to potty-train them and keep them clean. This way, they won't damage your carpeted floors when they're inside. Another rule you can establish is to prohibit eating outside of the kitchen or dining room. This way, you can save yourself a lot of spills and accidents that could put your carpet's integrity at risk.

Tend to Spills Promptly

Unfortunately, something that you can count on is that spills will happen in your home and will reach your carpeted floors at some point. Still if you want to make sure that your carpeting will be able to survive these incidents, you need to tend to those spills promptly and adequately. For example, if the spill is of a thick substance, you need to grab a spoon to pick some of it up (careful not to spread it further). Then, you can use a bit of warm water to clean the stain it left behind. Use little moisture and a clean cloth to dab the affected area and lift the residue. Do not scrub, as this will only cause the substance to penetrate more into the  carpeting, which will make it harder to remove.

Get It Professionally Deep Cleaned

Even if you are very careful with your carpeting and you clean it with regularity, you will still need to call in a professional team to deep clean it once a year. A professional team, such as Denver Cleanpro, will be able to completely strip your flooring of any nasty organisms, bad smells, unsightly stains, deep-rooted dust, and other issues, in a completely safe, green, and effective way. This means your carpeting will be sanitary and good as new after their visit. Plus, with Cleanpro's unique and revolutionary carpet cleaning system, you can expect the best results with the use of little moisture, which means it'll dry fast.

Provide Regular Maintenance

Of course, your carpeted floors need to be vacuumed with some regularity, lest you want dust, dead skin, bugs, and other nastiness to live in it and build up on it for a long time. If you aren't sure of how to go about it, however, you should know that you need to vacuum your floors at least once a week (don't vacuum them daily, though, as this may damage their fibers). And when you do, you need to be thorough: vacuum every spot slowly and in different directions. Be sure to use the vacuum's attachments correctly so you can clean every nook and cranny. Once a month, it is recommended that you move the furniture around to clean the carpeting under it.

Keep It Protected

Last but not least, to extend your carpeting's lifespan, you need to keep it protected. For starters, you can make use of a stain repellent that can shield your carpeting and keep spills from leaving lasting stains on it. You can also employ rugs to cover high traffic areas that are more vulnerable to damage (such as the entryway). Lastly, it is a good idea to change the furniture's placement every so often, so that you can allow certain areas of your carpeted floors to 'rest' once in awhile.
