Carpet and Carpet Maintenance
Carpet Maintenance helps provide long-lasting wear for your home and enhances appearance. Check out my radio interview with Jo Garner of Evolve Mortgage. Jo is the founder of Talk Shoppe , a local networking group that meets each week and allows professionals to mingle and become educated in many topics affecting real estate.
Carpet construction and carpet cleaning methods have been the subject of my presentations at Talk Shoppe. You can see my videos at floorcoveringmemphis.com.
Carpet can maintain its beauty and value over a long period of time by simple steps of keeping the carpet fibers clean. When dirt particles are allowed to stay in the carpet fiber they will grate and grind down the fibers’ integrity. The carpet fiber structure is compromised and the carpet begins to look dirty and look mashed down because the dirt particles are settled down in the carpet fiber.
With regular cleaning and carpet maintenance, these conditions may be easily avoided and eliminated.
Carpet Maintenance Eliminates Walk Patterns
Stains can develop into walk patterns where you actually see a trail of discoloration in your carpet. This not only looks awful but is destroying your carpet fiber!
To alleviate this problem you just have to use a good vacuum cleaner with a beater bar to pull up these dirt particles. You also need to have your carpet professionally cleaned every eighteen months by water extraction (steam cleaning) to remove that staining that occurs in every day living on your carpet.
Consider making a carpet maintenance schedule and post in your Outlook calendar or on the wall in your utility or laundry room to serve as a reminder for you to maintain it.
Check the internet, yellow pages to find reputable carpet cleaners to help you maintain your carpet for long lasting wear and enjoyment.
A proactive tip in maintaining your carpet is to purchase a high quality grade of carpet in the beginning. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. High quality carpets like Stainmaster carpets will wear longer and better.
The more durable the construction and fibers the less problems you’ll have with maintenance. It does means that you can eliminate carpet maintenance altogether, but the enhance quality will make the task easier and more gratifying.
