Carpet cleaning begins with vacuuming the carpet. This should be done once a week. It could be frequent depending on how the carpet is used. Vacuuming your carpet will make sure that it last longer. It eliminates accumulation of debris on the carpet which can damage the tone of the fibres. Clean the baseboard using a crevice tool. Pay attention as well to the radiators. Don’t forget the hard-to-reach areas.
Partition a wall-to-wall carpet into sections before vacuum cleaning the carpet. Clean each quadrant before cleaning a different area. Do not clean a carpet in a hurry. Dedicate your time in cleaning a carpet which could be logged with dirt. One way carpet cleaning is not enough. Clean an area several times. The cleaning should be done slowly to allow the vacuum cleaner to suck all the dust on the carpet surface.
Clean properly the areas with a lot of movements and where a person sits. These areas accumulate a lot of dirt. Crisscross the vacuum cleaner on these areas. Make sure that the crisscrosses of the strokes overlap on one another. You may apply soil retardants on the surfaces of a new carpet or just washed rug.
Strictly adhere to the manufacturers standards of cleaning a carpet. Use the recommended machines when cleaning a carpet. Remove bad smell in the vacuum cleaner by adding a teaspoon of baking powder in a vacuum cleaner bag. The baking powder will not remove stains on your carpet.
