Winters are a great time to stay warm inside. Families usually spend more time indoors during the cold months, which can increase the chances of staining or damaging your carpet. By following a few simple cleaning tips, you can keep your carpets clean during the winter months.
Hire a Professional Carpet Cleaner
The best way to clean your carpet completely is by hiring a professional. Having your carpets professionally cleaned in the winter has its advantages. Obviously you can do it yourself. But a huge mistake made is over wetting the carpet. Carpets do not dry as fast in the winter, so it is very important to not apply too much water when cleaning carpet.
Vacuum and Spot Clean More Often
We recommend that you vacuum at least once a day, but we know vacuuming can become tiring. Vacuuming 3-4 times a week is acceptable. When you notice a stain in the carpet, make sure you clean it up before it becomes a bigger problem. Vacuuming dirt away will guard against ground-in stains, and regular spot-cleaning will keep stains from setting in.
Protect your Carpet from Future Stains
- Set up a shoe rack at your front door and ask that family members and guests remove their shoes at the door
- Invest in two welcome mats–one to stomp on outside and remove as much snow as possible and one inside to stand on while removing shoes.
- Put a pen around your pet door so pets can come inside, but can’t leave a rug-covered area until you get the chance to wipe their paws.
