After reading tons of materials about cleaning and specifically carpet cleaning, i wanted to get it right and not ruin my carpets. When it comes to carpet cleaning, most of us are complete aliens and have no idea just how to deal with this chore that is incredibly important and unbelievable necessary, especially since we all want to live in healthy and sanitary houses that are safe for us and our families.
However, despite that wish that we all have it seems that we are rarely willing to do more than just vacuum our carpets and mop the floors.
If you are one of the people that I’ve mentioned above then you should certainly pay attention and take note of the fact that there are countless unhealthy micro – organisms living inside the fibers of your carpets. These micro – organisms are called dust mites, allergens and bacteria and they are responsible for many health disorders like allergies, respiratory issues and even skin problems.
You will be thrilled to find out that all of these problems can be solved or even avoided if you keep your carpets decently clean and neat and if you take care of them on a regular basis as I read many articles and inquired with a professional Oakville Carpet Cleaning company. So here is what you should do in order to keep your carpets clean.
Step 1: Vacuum
You should vacuum your carpets at least once a day. I feel like vacuuming every other day is too much time where dust mites and allergens can meet up and gather inside your carpets. So vacuuming every day is crucial in keeping your carpets clean and sanitary.
Step 2: Preparing a cleaning solution
There are plenty of cleaning solutions that you can choose in stores but I guarantee that none of them are quite as good as the ones you can make by yourself at home. You basically have a couple of options, depending on the ingredients you have in the pantry.
You can either try a one to one ratio of water and apple cider vinegar or a one to one ratio of lemon juice and water or, if you want to brighten the colors of the carpet and get out nasty stains, you can always choose baking soda with water.
Step 3: Brushing the carpet
Once the cleaning solution is done, all that is left for you to do is use it to brush the carpets. This is the part where you have to get down on all fours and put some elbow grease into it. It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort but in the end it is absolutely worth it. Just keep in mind to use the right rush and for it not to be too hard or to have hard hairs that could potentially damage your carpet. A soft brush will certainly do the trick.
Step 4: Vacuum again
Once the carpet is all brushed and already looking better you absolutely need to brush it again. This is the only way for you to be certain that all the extra dust and grime that has come out of the carpet will go away for good and not go back inside the carpet’s fibers.
