What is Involved in the Upkeep of Carpet?

As with anything, there is always upkeep and maintenance that comes along with any item you own. This is no different with the carpet in your home. And in all honesty, it is one of those things that should get a little bit more attention than most people give it. Carpet is fibrous and that means that it grabs onto any allergens and particles that you have coming in from outside, on your feet or the dog’s feet. When you think about all the things that dog step on just to find the perfect spot you understand that your carpet may not be as healthy or as clean as you think. So, what is involved in making sure that your carpets are healthy?

Regularly Vacuum

The best way to keep your carpet in good shape is to vacuum them regularly. This means no less than once a week. And yes, we mean all of your carpets. The carpet that is in a location that gets more traffic, you may want to vacuum even more than once a week. This will help to keep as much dust and dirt out of it as possible. As a result of this, when spills happen, they are less likely to become stains because they have nothing to hold onto.
