During the summer, carpets can get a bit worn out due to the activities that come with summer fun, such as cookouts, family visits, and school kids being home all day. When the traffic at home is higher than usual, a few tips can help you keep your carpets cleaner between professional cleanings. 

 

Shoes Off Inside

One of the easiest ways to keep your indoor carpets looking their best is by having everyone remove their shoes when they enter the house. This will help prevent dirt and grime from getting tracked into your carpet. If you have a social gathering that's happening indoors, ask everyone to remove their shoes. It will also help keep the environment clean and comfortable.

 

Use Extra Rugs & Mats

When planning a gathering at home, make sure that people wearing shoes can clean their shoes when they enter the house by putting down mats or rugs. Mats can also help prevent dirt from getting on the carpets. In addition, runners in hallways are known to reduce the wear and tear of the carpets. Placing doormats at entrances also allows people to wipe their shoes off.

 

Vacuum Regularly

Regular vacuuming can help remove dirt, dust, and allergens from your carpets and keep them looking their best. Before you start the process, sprinkle baking soda on the carpet to help absorb the odors. It should be done at least once weekly, especially if you've been entertaining recently.

 

Just Spend More Time Outdoors

During the summer, spend some time outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. This will help keep your area rugs looking their best and prevent dirt and foot traffic from getting on them. Children playing in the grass will also keep them busy and away from indoor carpets, which can lead to less risk of spills and stains. 

 

Hire Pros

While you can buy or rent a carpet cleaner for deep cleaning, you might damage the fibers of your carpet by using harsh chemicals. To avoid this, you should always hire a professional to clean the carpet. They can help keep your carpets looking their best and extend their life.

 

Take some time to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather this summer. If you follow these suggestions, you'll get more life out of your carpets between professional cleanings while the kids are home this summer.
