Everyone of us has faced the burdens of cleaning the house and, as everyone knows, it can be stressful, time- and money-consuming experience. Unfortunately, most of the people simply cannot afford to hire a professional company to take care of the cleaning for us every time that it has to be done. So we have to do it ourselves. However, there are many things that can go wrong while cleaning. Many of them just increase the nerves we spend on the activity, while other mistakes can be very dangerous, because if you do not know how to apply the cleaning agents and the disinfecting detergents you may harm the surface that you are cleaning, thus achieving the very opposite of the desired effect. Those mistakes can be so dangerous that they may make the items cleaned unusable. This is true for the carpets. So in this article we will give you several basic tips, which everyone can apply for the cleaning and washing of the carpets.
Even if you clean your house often, you maybe forget about the carpets and rugs. But it is advisable to pay attention to them. They tend to gather lots of dust over the time and this may cause you lung problems, since, after all, you breathe the dust from the carpets. So vacuum them every once and awhile. It is a good idea to do so every week. If you lack the time to do it, you can have them vacuumed two or three times per month. When you vacuum them pay attention to the both sides of the carpet and to the floor beneath them, because it is there where most of the dust gathers.
When you clean your carpets there are some things that you should not do. One of them is to apply cleaning shampoos and strong detergents to non-synthetic matters. This will harm your woolen carpet. The shampoos can permanently damage its colours and you do not want to waste money on another one just because of this simple mistake.
There are things which you cannot achieve with your vacuum cleaner. One of them is to extract the tiniest bits of dust from your carpet. So you will have to hire a professional company to have them washed for you. They use very effective techniques and will manage to wash them perfectly. It is a good idea to have your carpets washed at least two times a year. This will make them more beautiful and your house – much cleaner. It will save you time, as well – it takes between 15 and 25 minutes per carpet when it is treated by a professional.
