How To Properly Take Care Of My Carpets

What if I told you that there is a secret weapon against wear paths? A weapon so powerful that just by using it, you could extend the life of your carpet by YEARS. A weapon that fights allergies, stains, AND pet hair. Now what if I told you that there is a good chance that you already own this weapon and its sitting in your house right now? What is it, you ask? Your personal household vacuum is your first line of defense.  

According to the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) vacuuming is the easiest and most effective way to keep your carpets clean in the long run. Also, regular vacuuming is the #1 way to keep household allergies to a minimum. Here are just a few simple tips to keeping your vacuum in tip-top shape so it can do what its best at.

#1. The faster you vacuum, the less of a chance you’re giving your vacuum to do its job.  Remember, slow and steady wins the race.

#2.  If the bag is half full, it’s time to go. Most vacuum bags are actually only made to be filled halfway. The fuller the bag, the less suction your vacuum has. The fuller it gets, the greater the risk that dust might seep out, or the vacuum itself won’t be working to its fullest potential.

#3. The hand tool is your friend. Sometimes the vacuum can’t get into hard to reach places or get close enough along the walls or stairs.  The hand tool is perfect for detailing all these trouble areas.

The weapon is in your hands now. And remember with great power, comes great breathing clarity, cleanliness, and overall peace of mind. Of course, you will still need to have your carpets professional cleaned on a regular bases determined by your warranty, usage, and situation.  We will discuss that in a future issue.  

Until Next time, Rugman out!
