How to extend the life of your carpet.

Here are a few tips and tricks to extend the life of your carpet. First off, you should regularly vacuum your carpet about 2-3 times a week. There may be different types of dirt and dust in the carpet that you are not aware of and will eventually be a pain to clean if you wait too long the vacuum cleaner itself is not that expensive and it takes about 20 minutes to vacuum a carpet properly. 

Another tip is to place a walk off mat at all the entrances in your home. This will prevent any tracking from dirty shoes onto a clean carpet. 

Always remember to clean up spills the moment they happen. Waiting to clean up a spill may result in color change of the carpet, and can eventually be soaked up permanently into the carpet. The best way to clean up a spill is to blot it with water and a dry cloth. 

One of the best tips we can give is to have your carpet cleaned professionally regularly. In high traffic areas, you should be cleaning your carpets every 3-4 months, and in all other areas about once a year. This removes all the soil that is attached in the carpet fibers and makes it look and smell as if it was bought very recently.
