How To Keep Your Professionally Cleaned Carpets Clean Indeed...

When you get your carpet professionally steam cleaned, keeping it clean becomes a potential issue. Consider these tips to keep your carpet clean after a professional carpet cleaning.

Tip #1 Wait Before Walking

Never walk across wet carpeting. Allow carpets to dry completely first, whether you clean up a small spill or after a professional cleaning. Remember, the drying time for carpet can vary between 2-24 hours, depending on the air flow in the room, humidity, as well as carpet type.

Tip #2 Remove Shoes But Not Barefoot

It turns out that walking barefoot across your professionally cleaned carpet is not such a good idea after all. Natural oils in your skin can potentially leave oily residue behind. This oily residue can leave your freshly cleaned carpets with a dirty look and can attract dirt. Instead of going completely barefoot, walk on your carpet while wearing socks or slippers that you do not wear outdoors.

Tip #3 Clean Stains And Spills Immediately

Always clean all spills and stains immediately. The longer a spill remains on carpeting, the harder it is to remove it. Learn more about how to remove ink stains or pet stains from our blog.

Tip #4 Blot Only

Instead, blot spills or stains. Blotting soaks up the spill, whereas rubbing causes it to soak into carpet fibers. Better yet, think about investing in a small carpet cleaning machine such as this one to extract the stain, this is especially important if the stain is a pet accident or liquid based spill. Before trying any products...try water first to clean the spill. Use a clean white towel or paper towels. We recommend against using harsh chemicals, advising that if water does not work, try a small amount of dish detergent such as Dawn. If this does not work, contact Clean Indeed for more help.

Tip #5 Vacuum Regularly

Do you vacuum only when your carpet looks like it needs vacuuming? Keep carpet looking clean longer after a professional carpet cleaning by vacuuming regularly, whether you think the carpet needs it or not. Vacuuming removes dirt and particles you may not see. Vacuuming regularly also helps remove pollutants carried inside. Find out how often to vacuum here.
