Forum Title: Carpet Care Tips
First of all, what carpet care has to be applied depends on what kind of carpet you have got and the material it is made of. It is an interesting fact that the natural material in old carpets require much less care than the modern ones. It is so because they were handmade and tested, washed, dried and pre-shrunk during this process. But for all types of carpets there is one major universal method of care: cleaning. Even though, as I have mentioned, cleaning methods also vary depending on the quality and material of the carpet you got, no carpet can go on for years or even months without a good cleaning. Sometimes when a carpet has no stains on it and its color looks bright, as if it were brand new, one may think there is no need for carpet washing or cleaning. It is a commonly made mistake. All sort of carpets accumulate certain measure of dust and moisture in them, which becomes a good dwelling place for bacteria and mold. These things can ruin your carpet from inside out as well as your health. So, a good remedy especially for natural fabric carpets, such as wool, would be light dust beating given it every few months. It is best to take your carpet outside, turn it the other way around and lightly beat on it. Ground or snow is the best option for such beating. Try to avoid hanging your carpet on a fence, because this way you overstretch and overstrain its grains of fabric and ruin it. If you feel like your carpet color is growing dim, but you cannot give it such a carpet care as outdoor washing or cleaning, you can clean and restore its color right in your living room without using any chemical detergents for it.

Top Carpet Care Tips 1. Keep your carpet clean. Sand and dirt act like thousands of little razor blades that cut carpet fibers. Damaged carpet stains more easily, and it's harder to remove the stains from it as well. Vacuum often to remove dirt, and your carpet will last longer. 2. Use rugs. Put rugs outside and inside the front door, and any other entrances. They can catch much of the dirt that people bring in on their feet. That means less vacuuming and longer carpet life. 3. Remove shoes. This is a sure way to make carpet last longer. If you have a nice home with nice carpet, people usually aren't offended by this policy. 4. Clean stains quickly and properly. If using a cleaning solvent other than water, apply it to a cloth first, and work it in from the outside of the stain to the center, so you don't spread the spot. Apply the cleaner, extract (blot), rinse, extract, and repeat until you can't get more of the stain out. Extract solvents completely, and dry the carpet quickly when you're done. If there is any stain remaining deeper down in the carpet, quick drying prevents it from wicking up to the surface. 5. Use a shop-vac. It's a great help when cleaning stains. You can't just suck out the stain, but you can repeatedly wash and rinse the area, and suck the solution out each time. It's more effective than blotting up the water with cloth, mostly because you won't have the patience to wash, rinse and extract enough times if you're using paper towels or cloth. 6. Vacuum before cleaning. If you use a portable machine, at least get the water as hot as you can, and dry the carpet quickly, using fans to move the air around. You won't match the results of a good truck-mount hot water extraction unit. However, if you want to save money, doing your own cleaning can lengthen the time between expensive professional cleanings. Want carpet clean enough for the kids to play on? Do you want it to last for years longer than normal? Just use these basic carpet care tips.
