Home Carpet Cleaning Tips To Make Your Carpet Sparkle

If you’ve lived in your home for more than a year, you’ve probably started to notice that the carpet isn’t as clean as it once was. Perhaps it looks dingy in high traffic areas. Perhaps children and pets have left it stained. Or maybe it just lacks that new carpet "sparkle" it had when you first moved in. A few home carpet cleaning tips can help you to restore some of the beauty to your floor.

You’ll also need a special carpet cleaning solution that can be purchased at the supermarket. Make sure to get one that is specially formulated for your particular problems – pet stains, high traffic dirt, or food stains.

To select the machine, you can find carpet cleaning recommendations online, or talk to someone at your local vacuum store. You will want to select a machine that can clean low-pile carpets, high-pile carpets, and hard floors. It is also nice to have a machine with a spot treatment device to deal with those pesky pet or spill stains.

Some home carpet cleaning tips are simple and can make a big differenc. First, pre-treat high traffic areas and stains. Second, tackle the remainder of the carpet, making sure to use the correct setting and cleaning solution for your carpet. Finally – the most important of our home carpet cleaning tips – go back over the high traffic areas and stains a second and third time.

Another of our cleaning tips is to make sure the carpet dries for about 24 to 48 hours after you have cleaned your it thoroughly. If possible you may want to leave some windows open so you can get some air flowing through your home to speed up the drying process. Try not to walk on the carpet while it dries – use area rugs to get from one area of the house to another. It may be inconvenient, but it will prevent pile crushing.

For more tips and info on cleaning a carpet, you can look at home cleaning sites online, or call your local vacuum or carpet store. Always make sure to consult the manufacturer of your carpet before beginning to clean, in case it needs special treatment, professional cleaning, or a more thorough drying time.
