You just put new carpet in your home, and you’re enjoying the way it looks, feels, and functions. However, the prospect of keeping your carpet looking like this long-term is weighing on you, and you want to know exactly how to keep your flooring looking like new. To do this, at Giant Carpet Flooring Centre, we recommend:
- Using area rugs and runners—If you want to avoid your carpet becoming worn down and soiled in high-traffic areas, place area rugs and runners down on top of your carpet. We encourage you to check out our online area rug store if you’re looking for a great place to buy a new rug.
- Vacuuming regularly—By vacuuming, you eliminate dirt that has accumulated in the strands of your carpet. When dirt and dust are allowed to sit in your carpet, they can damage the carpet strands and change the way the carpet reflects light.
Avoiding carpet powder products—Powder cleaning products are a popular way to eliminate odour from carpet. However, especially if they are overused, they can leave traces of powder residue in your carpet. The next time you have your carpet shampooed or steamed, this leftover powder will turn into a white, sticky film.
- Investing in regular cleanings—If you’re like many people, you might wait until your carpet is extremely dirty to have it professionally cleaned. However, investing in professional cleaning before your carpet starts to look dingy can prevent permanent damage.
