There are few things in your home that you interact with as often as your carpet. Because of that, a clean carpet is an essential part of a healthy and happy home. Here are four best practices to increase the beauty and longevity of your carpet.

Keep The Dirt Out In The First Place: The first step to maintaining clean carpet is having mats at each entrance to your home, and if possible, a no shoe policy. The majority of all carpet stains occur near entrances, so start there. Try a sisal-type mat placed at your main entry door: garage, back door, etc. This type of mat may be a little more expensive, but it is a lot more effective in “brushing” the dirt off of shoes.

Emergency Carpet Stain Kit: We give every customer a free quart bottle of our CitruSpotter, so you don’t have to buy a soapy, foamy spot cleaner. We also recommend keeping a bottle of half white vinegar and water on hand for small stains. Club soda is also a good bet. There is no need to buy expensive soapy chemical cleaners from the grocery store.

Regular Vacuuming: The first part of a clean carpet regiment is regular vacuuming. We recommend a good quality, HEPA vacuum. Vacuuming the rugs and carpet in your home on a regular basis reduces the dust, dust mites, and other particulate pollutants from accumulating in your home.

Professional Cleaning: In order to maintain the health and aesthetics of your carpet and promote its lifespan, it is helpful to invest in professional cleaning services at least once or twice a year. CitruSolution is strong enough to clean those tough spots and spills, but gentle. Did you know among our clients are a Nashville hospital and a Franklin infant through kindergarten day school?
