Carpet maintenance is essential every certain period of time. We can do it by our own selves. We can also ask someone else like particular service to do it for us. If we want to do it by our own selves, we need to learn t do it perfectly. This can be challenging sometimes, and we may bear the risk of ruining the carpet. There are major things we need to remember before we do the maintenance or cleaning. Here are the important things.
1. Test the Cleaning Solution
Many things should be tested especially if you are about cleaning by yourself. Check if colourfastness is fine on your carpet, and if it will not damage the carpet look and condition. Read the ingredients too.
2. Read the Manufacturer Guide
Most manufacturers give guide label for carpet so you can find suggested cleaning and maintenance methods for your carpet. Do as it say, and don’t be too experimental to prevent damage and colour shifting as well.
3. Study Your Carpet Set
Each carpet is made differently and each of them has unique setting. Look on the back side and check it. Make sure the hired service know how to handle such construction. Cleaning and maintaining against it will ruin the carpet.
4. Find Stains
If you want to clean it, spot the entire stains it has. You may need to apply special solutions for it and you do not need to touch the other parts as it is not necessary.
5. Carpet Material
Read the labels and find out about your carpet material. Every percentage will define and lead into different kind of cleaning and maintenance action. Give the information to your hired service as well.
6. Service Quality Check
If you hire special service to clean it, you need to check on the service quality. Do they apply the same method and strategy to clean and maintain? If they do, forget it. Find other alternatives.
7. Carpet Condition
If your carpet is on good condition, it can take all needed procedures. However, older carpet may need additional consideration and help. Check on it and see if the needed procedures will be the appropriate one for it.
Now, you already know the entire important things you need to always remember before you start cleaning or giving maintenance to your carpets and rugs. This will apply for all carpets and area rugs, and you may add more things for special cases and occasions.
