Clean Carpet Series - Banishing Dirt - Carpet Cleaning Utica NY and Rome NY

Dirt is like millions of small shrapnel that destroy carpet fibers. When we walk across a dirty carpet, we grind sharp blades of dirt particles against the fibers, making tiny cuts in the fibers. All that puffy mess mixed in with the dirt in your vacuum cleaner is your beautiful (expensive) carpet headed to the garbage one bag at a time. When dirt scratches the yarn, it dulls the color, which is why traffic areas appear duller than the rest of the carpet. Over time, abrasive dirt wears away the fibers too, which mats them down and makes them more susceptible to stains. Follow these DIY tips to keep your carpet as dirt-free as possible.

Vacuum, Vacuum, VACUUM!
To keep your carpet protected, make sure you vacuum entrance areas and high-traffic areas at least twice a week and the rest of your carpeting a weekly. Oily dirt attracts oily dirt, and frequent vacuuming will reduce dirt buildup.

Start with a clean bag or filter
A dirty bag, cup or filter will reduce your vacuums efficiency by 50%. The main reason a bagless vacuum will stop working is because filters aren’t changed or cleaned often enough. Replace or wash (if possible) the filters on bagless vacuums every other time you vacuum.  Replace vacuum bags when they’re about three-quarters full.

Vacuum at the right speed
Vacuum sssslllowlyyyy  and thoroughly to get out as much dirt as possible. Make a quick pass over low-traffic areas and two r three slow passes over high-traffic areas. Two or three slow passes removes ground-in dirt more effectively than several fast passes.

Use walk-off mats
Using walk-off mats inside and outside will help keep dirt off the carpeting.  The coarse-textured mats outside your doors will help remove soil and water-absorbent mats inside will prevent wet shoes on the carpeting.

These 4 things plus having your carpets professionally cleaned every year to 6 months will insure your carpets remain beautiful for years to come!  Rely on Celestial Clean for all your carpet cleaning needs in Utica NY and Rome NY www.CelestialClean.com , info@celestialclean.com  or call 315-570-3510.
