Become a Lean, Mean, Green, Steam-Cleaning Machine
Periodically you’re going to need to call in the steam cleaning professionals (hopefully K&M), but in the meantime, there’s plenty you can do to keep your carpet looking fresh. So let’s talk carpet maintenance and best practices. And while we’re at it, let’s be conscious of the effect certain cleaning products have on the earth and on your carpet. “Going Green” isn’t a marketing angle. It’s a legitimate concern for homeowners…
How often do you vacuum?
If you said, “I don’t know, maybe once or twice a month,” then you’re probably not doing it enough. Vacuuming is a typically a weekly job. Any part of your house that gets trampled on on a daily basis is going to get pretty dirty after a week. Especially if you have pets or rugrats (why do you think they call kids that?). But luckily, once they hit a certain age, kids LOVE to vacuum. And by “love,” of course we mean, will do it for the right amount of allowance.
What kind of carpet cleaning products do you use?
If you said, “Powders and spot removers and pet sprays or pretty much that says ‘Bleach’ or ‘Extreme’,” then you may be doing more harm than good. Try using plain old baking soda as an alternative to carpet deodorizers and powders. And water or club soda should be sufficient for picking up stains if you act fast.
Are you doing the obvious?
Remember how all the cool moms would make you take off your shoes before coming in the house? That was cool, right? Well, there’s no shame in asking adults and kids alike to go shoeless after they cross the threshold. A doormat is a good first step, but barefoot is where it’s at. Have you ever seen a dirty carpet in Japan? Didn’t think so.
That’s a good start. Check back soon for more Austin carpet cleaning tips and tricks from the folks at K&M Steam Cleaning.
