Ways to Extend the Life of Your Carpet

Your carpet is very important. Keeping it looking as good as it was when you first installed it is important. When you have beautiful carpet even throughout the years it means that your carpet is going to last longer. As the years go on wear and tear is going to happen, but it doesn’t mean that it has to happen at an exponential rate. If it does then it obviously means the life expectancy of your carpet is going to be short. However, the reverse is also true. Elite Carpet Cleaning and Repair know the best carpet cleaning techniques to be able to make sure that your carpet lasts as long as it can. We want to be able to help you extend the life expectancy of your carpet, the number one way being carpet cleaning and here is why.

Carpet cleaning is important to the life of your carpet. There are some essential routine functions that must take place when you get your carpets cleaned. One of those is vacuuming. Vacuuming will extend the life of your carpet if you take care to do it once a week, even more if you can. This will help to take the dirt and dust out of the carpet preserving it and extending its life. If a simple vacuuming can do that then what happens when you have your carpets cleaned by a professional. As professional carpet cleaners we use very strong vacuums before preforming any carpet cleaning work to make sure that we pick up the most dirt, dust, and particles that we can.

Certainly, it depends on their process and the cleaning agents that they use as to how clean your carpet will get. Some carpet cleaners will leave a residue which can leave you worse off than you began with, although it looks better. So, what is the deal? Carpet cleaning can make the life expectance longer if it is done right. Using hot water extraction can be very beneficial to your carpet. The cleaning agent is what makes the difference though as to if a residue will be left. This is very different from steam cleaning. In truth there is no steam about it when it comes to hot water extraction, but it is exactly what it says it is, hot water. With a mixture of both hot water and a cleaning agent, it is injected into the carpet fabric. This breaks up the dirt and grim that has settled at the bottom of it of the carpet fibers. All the while it is vacuuming up the water from your carpet as well. This makes the fibers in your carpet clean and in turn last longer. Soft fibrous carpet that was worn down from high traffic areas is what you want. It means that there is still life in your carpet. By cleaning it at least once a year to every 6 months you can keep the fiber of your carpet in good health.

This helps not just in high traffic areas but also with potential stains. Stains become stubborn when they have a lot of dirt and dust to grab onto in the fiber. When you take the dirt, dust, oil, and grime out of the picture though you have easy to clean spills that can happen from time to time. If you have pets then you can expect even more dirt, grime and the like being embedded into your carpet. They carry many things in from outside that settle into your carpet. You can understand then that your carpet can look fine but in actuality is very unhealthy.
