In Columbia, South Carolina, the weather can be unpredictable. One minute the sun is shining and the next the rain is pouring down. Over time, you have probably gotten used to the sporadic change in weather and if you have children or pets running in and out during the chaos, you probably don’t appreciate the mess it can cause on your carpets. Dirt and grime collect in the fibers of your carpets and when you mix that with water from the rain you have a serious mess. No matter how hard you try to keep your carpets spotless and stain-free, life happens and it usually shows up on that carpet.
Here are some tips on how you can extend the life of your carpets even with the chaotic weather patterns we have in Columbia:
Vacuuming is not enough.
We vacuum every day and still, there is ground-in dirt on our carpets. When we walk across the carpet, the dirt can grind together causing damage to the carpet fibers. It is important to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year, then when needed you can have just the high traffic and stained areas cleaned when needed. Carpet cleaning can help extend the life of your carpeting, reduce dust mites and allergens that are trapped in our carpets.
Spot clean immediately to avoid stains.
Spills happen, but the sooner you react to the spot the less likely there will be a stain. Clean up any solid items and blot up any liquid left behind. If the spill has the chance to soak into the carp and carpet padding it will be increasingly more difficult to remove the stain completely.
