Sure, carpeted floors look fancy, but cleaning them is a proper headache. Most of the time after a party or a family gathering, carpets are left with the stains that are there to stay. Carpets demand to be cleaned on a daily basis and if you are a clumsy person, there must be a lot of stains which are stubborn and won’t leave no matter how hard you try to clean it. Just one small spill and your carpet will start looking like an old rug. Instead of wasting money on the carpeting every year you can make them look fresher for a longer period.
Here are some tips for you to make your carpets look cleaner each day.
1. In case of a spill, clean immediately
Never leave stains for the longer period of time. Otherwise, they will stick to the carpet for forever. Basically, some liquids are absorbed by the small pores of carpets resulting in long-lasting stains. Always keep a spray bottle and small brush in your cleaning bucket. In case of emergency spilling, just grab it and clean it immediately. Some stains are a little tough than the other ones; you can use warm water to remove them.
2. Use vacuum cleaner
No matter how busy you are, try to clean your carpet every day. The dust particles get clogged in the small pores and if they are not cleaned everyday layers of dirt will be stuck under the carpet. Excessive dirt can cause allergies to people breathing in that air and worsen the situation for the ones who are already suffering from one. Usually, people think that they need bigger and the expensive vacuum cleaners for having better cleaning. Well! What they don’t know is that the regular ones can perform a better job, with much lesser cost. Some of the vacuums under 100 are:
- Numatic James JVP180
- Vax U90-MA-Re Air Reach
- Black + Decker Lithium Compact Pivot
- Vax Energise Tempo Pet U86-E1-PE
3. Do not use every product you see
There are so many products available in the market that claim to work like a charm and remove any kind of stain. That does not mean you should be using them. They use highly reactive chemicals, which will remove the stains as well as the original color of the carpets. Most of the carpets result in discoloration because of the use of such chemicals. Before you buy any product, do some brief searching and check the reviews of the products. Check the covering of the product too, chemicals used inside the solution are also mentioned there.
we all have that one box in our house which is full of the things that are basically never used but we are too reluctant to throw it away. In case of any problem, you can use things from your box too. For example, you can use the old nail polish which matches the color of your carpet to cover up the stains.
