Correct Carpet Maintenance

In the Carpets and Textiles industry, we know that the care and maintenance of them is cause for concern, especially for people that do it for a living. We are also interested in new cleaning techniques and always look for new ways to do jobs.

Carpets are made with synthetic fibers: nylon, polypropylene, polyester, Especially, the characteristics and excellent quality of the last two facilitate its cleaning and maintenance.

Maintaining the beauty of carpets and increasing their durability requires a little attention and following simple rules for their care:

Make sure to: Avoid dust or dirt, Aspirate periodically, Remove stains immediately, or as soon as possible, Prevent dust or dirt from accumulating In order to formulate simple maintenance plans. We suggest two ways to take control of the condition of the carpets, according to the intensity of the traffic to which they are subjected and the degree of dirt that they are subjected to.

According to the area

Areas of light traffic: scarce circulation during the day, little space (rooms, dining areas, bedrooms, etc.). Require:
Vacuum: Once a week.
Brush the thread: Every 4 months.
Professional cleaning: Once per year

Medium traffic areas: frequent circulation during the day (bedrooms, offices, etc.). Require:
Vacuum: Twice a week.
Brush the thread: Every two months.
Professional cleaning: Every 6 months or so

Areas of high traffic: very frequent or constant circulation during the day (TV rooms, stairs, corridors, etc.). Require:
Vacuum: Daily.
Brush the thread: Every month.
Professional cleaning: Every 3 months.

Frequency according to amount of dirt

Chase, who owns a carpet cleaning business in Cornelius NC, says that the frequency of vacuuming and professional cleaning depends on the amount of dirt in the area. Below are some rough guidelines to follow.

Light Dirt: start off with a vacuum and then do some thread maintenance.

Moderate dirt: If the carpet shows changes in color, texture, shading of the fiber, or loss of brightness then you have the option to try and deal with it yourself or call in a professional.

Excessive dirt: If the carpet shows obvious changes in color and appearance or there are excessive or intense spots then it may be time to call in a pro.

Everyday maintenance

Stain Removal: Remove substances (solid or liquid) that stick to the fibers of the carpet.

Vacuuming: you must vacuum at least once a week or more depending on the traffic an dirt, as outlined above.
