It is essential to carpet cleaning regularly to prevent parasites such as dust mites from taking up residence among the fibers. If someone in your home suffers from allergies, you will also want to get your carpet cleaned regularly, perhaps by a commercial cleaning company, to prevent the build-up of dust which is triggering to allergy and asthma sufferers.

Everyday Cleaning

For everyday cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner to suck up dust, pet hair, and fluff from the carpet. For this process to be effective, you need to remember to change the bag on your vacuum regularly, or use a bagless vacuum cleaner. Vacuuming won’t remove stains or clean the deepest parts of your carpet, but it is helpful to keep your carpet free from dust. It also removes small objects such as crumbs or flecks of mud before they are trodden into the carpet. You should aim to vacuum your carpet at least once a week if possible.

Deeper Cleaning

Occasionally, you might want to give your carpet a deeper clean. Perhaps you accidentally spilled a glass of wine onto your carpet? Do not despair: you can use a stain removal kit to clean away small stains. It is a good idea to do this as quickly as possible as old stains are harder to remove. If the whole carpet is looking a bit grubby, you could hire a carpet shampoo machine to wash the carpet. However, consider the time and cost associated with this carefully. Most hire companies charge depending on how long you keep the machine, so if you are not confident that you can get the job done quickly, it might actually be cheaper to hire the services of a residential cleaning company. These professional cleaners will quickly get to work on your carpet, restoring it to its pristine condition quickly and efficiently. Connecticut has some excellent residential cleaning services; why not make use of them?

Key Takeaways:

  • Carpets should be vacuumed often to keep them free from dust.
  • Stains can be removed using a stain removal kit.
  • You can hire a Connecticut residential cleaning service to deep clean your carpet.
