Back to Basics: How to Keep Carpet Clean in Your Home

2015 is here, and CRI is here with some carpet cleaning tips for your home’s carpet in the New Year.

Keeping carpet clean is an easy way to add to the overall appearance of your home and these tips will help you keep carpet fresh, clean and lasting, especially with Seal of Approval-certified products.

The following tips cover the different aspects of how to keep you carpet looking great all year.

1.      Vacuuming

Vacuuming is the simplest and easiest way to keep carpet clean and lasting. Regular vacuuming, at least once a week, is imperative to the life and beauty of your home’s carpet. However, the more foot traffic, the more you will need to vacuum. Be sure to use a Seal of Approval-certified vacuum.

2.      Deep Cleaning

You may know deep cleaning by a number of different names (i.e. hot-water extraction, steam cleaning), but deep cleaning is vital to the life of carpet. CRI recommends a deep cleaning every 12-18 months to refresh carpet and remove the deepest dirt.

3.      Spot Removal

Spots and stains can happen anywhere and anytime, but the most important thing you can do is treat the stain as soon as it happens. This will dramatically reduce the chance of the spot or stain resoiling. SOA Solutions are tested and certified for their ability to effectively remove stains and minimize resoiling.

Follow these tips to keep your home’s carpet beautiful throughout the New Year.
