Carpets are some of the most expensive floor solutions in a home. They need to be well taken care of to serve you well. The best way to do this is by cleaning them often. The National Carpet Cleaners Association (NCCA) recommends cleaning carpets at least once a year. This helps protect carpets from stains, moths, and even fleas (a problem nobody wants).

Is It Worth Getting Carpets Cleaned?

It is worth getting your carpets cleaned. Dirty carpets are home to harmful bacteria and pests that may affect you, your family, and your pets' health. Cleaning elongates the time you get to use and enjoy your carpet. Wool carpets, especially, are prone to moths. Moth-proof cleaning ingredients are applied to them when new. However, over time, the moth-proof application needs to be reapplied after a year.

Getting a professional with a good carpet cleaning machine will not only get the stains but also save you in carpet replacement costs.

How Do I Clean My Carpet Myself?

If it's for spot cleaning, apply a mixture of baking soda, salt, vinegar, and shampoo and scrub with a brush until you get the stain off.

However, get a lint roller for deep cleaning to get rid of pet hairs, if any. Then vacuum to get rid of dust particles. Finally, apply a vinegar and baking soda mixture in larger quantities and then clean with a steam cleaner. After you are done, vacuum the carpet. This will remove debris, stains, and grime with ease.

How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?

It's best to clean carpets at least once a year, according to the NCCA. However, experts at EaseFix advise doing a deep clean at least twice a year and vacuuming at least once a week to avoid dealing with accumulated dust, debris, and stains.

How Long Does It Take for Carpet to Dry After Cleaning?

Carpets often take six to ten hours to dry, depending on the weather, time of year, air circulation, temperature, and humidity in your home. It's advisable to wait up to 24hrs before you step on the carpet so as not to stain it again.
The best way to hurry the drying process is by switching on the humidifier and fan.

How Can I Make My Carpet Look New Again?

The best way to make a carpet look new is to use the right cleaning products and vacuum regularly. It's best to use runners or rugs in high-traffic areas to avoid getting persistent stains. For pet owners, it's better to groom your pets regularly.
Finally, do not step on a carpet you have washed for at least 24 hours to avoid staining it.
