KEEPING YOUR CARPET LOOKING AS GOOD AS THE DAY IT WAS INSTALLED
Any home renovation project comes with some degree of suspense, anticipation, and excitement as the final reveal comes closer and closer. When it comes to brand-new carpets, when all is said and done, it can be hard to resist the urge to slip into your fuzzy socks, shuffle your feet, and “static shock” your family members, not to mention the urge to run barefoot on the new fluffy carpet right along with your kids. As time goes on, it’s normal for carpets to exhibit usual signs of wear-and-tear, like slight discoloration/bleaching from the sunlight, dust accumulation, and the fibers becoming slightly matted.
Here are three key concepts you need to learn in order to develop good techniques to care for your carpet and extend its lifetime as long as possible.
Sounds obvious right? After all, nobody plans of spilling wine all over the white carpet.
If you can prevent spills and stains from occurring, you’ll be much better off than if you have to remove them yourself. Some good tips for you to practice that will help your carpet as long as possible include enforcing as best as possible a no-shoes, no-food rule on the carpet area. Shoes will track in mud, dirt, and dust, while food poses the risk of spills and stains. On a similar note, it’s a good idea to make sure that any pets (or small children!) are trained properly to avoid particularly unpleasant messes.
It’s important to vacuum your entire carpet thoroughly and regularly, spending extra time on areas that are most commonly walked on. This will remove the dust and dirt from the carpet that accumulates naturally over time. Too much dust or grit in your carpet will not only distort the coloration but can even pose a threat to your family’s respiratory systems. Lastly, some carpet experts claim it’s a good idea to rearrange your furniture every six months. This will prevent those unsightly indentations from forming as a result of the prolonged weight of the furniture concentrated in a small area on the carpet. However, plenty of other people swear that this doesn’t matter, they can’t be bothered to completely redesign their home every six months, and that those dents in the carpet are hidden by the feet of the furniture anyway, so ultimately it’s up to you what you want to do.
Whether it’s a little nail polish or a wine stain or something much more drastic, there’s no need to panic!
