How To Take Care Of Your Carpet This Fall

Dirt on carpeting is all too common in the fall. Make sure to get your carpeting cleaned before the cold sets in.As the weather begins to change and fall arrives, mud, dirt, and water are much more likely to make their way into your home. Once inside your home, each of these contaminants will inevitably end up in your carpeting. Learn how to protect and take care of your carpet this fall to avoid the high cost of replacing or removing flooring in high-traffic areas throughout your home. 

Create a Mudroom

Create a designated mudroom inside or outside of your home for shoes, jackets, and other outdoor accessories or materials. Mudrooms prevent tracking mud, dirt, water, and other material found in nature into the home. A mudroom will make it much easier to maintain clean carpeting. 

Examine Your Carpet Thoroughly

Over time, carpet changes color and consistency, especially when you have active children and pets that contribute to the traffic in your home. Inspect and examine your carpet thoroughly to determine what the original state of your flooring is by checking underneath furniture and moving items that have covered up your carpet. Take note of the original state of your carpet when planning to stain and deep-clean your rooms. 

Vacuum Frequently

Vacuum at least twice a week and if you have children or pets, once daily in high-traffic areas. Avoid build-up of crumbs, spills, mud, and dirt by vacuuming frequently, especially during the fall and winter seasons. 

Pre-Treat Stains Immediately

Always treat stains and spills immediately after they occur to prevent them from seeping further into your carpet or remaining there permanently. Rid mud, dirt, and debris from outdoors as fast as possible to maintain your carpet's condition and original state. 

Steam or Dry Clean the Carpet

Steaming and dry cleaning your carpet at least once a month is highly advisable when you have a home with high-traffic throughout all seasons. Steaming and washing your carpet preserves its original state while also keeping the air quality in your home healthy.
