How to Clean and Maintain a Carpet

Carpet Cleaner

Carpeting is a popular option for many homes and offices due to its elegant and cosy appearance. Yet without proper maintenance, it can accumulate dust and dirt and affect the lifespan of the carpet. This blog will discuss how to keep a carpet clean and in good condition.

Regular Vacuuming

The best way to keep a carpet clean is to vacuum it often. The frequency with which you should do this will depend on the amount of traffic the carpet receives. For a low-traffic carpet, we recommend vacuuming it at least once a week. For a high-traffic carpet or if you have pets, we recommend vacuuming two-to-three times per week.

When vacuuming a carpet, make sure to do it in all directions to lift the most dust and dirt.

Clean Stains Immediately

Stains can be a common problem on carpets. It is important to clean stains immediately to prevent them from drying and becoming permanent. Use absorbent paper or a clean towel to remove excess liquid. Avoid rubbing too hard as this can damage the carpet fibre.

If the stain persists, use a specific carpet cleaner, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Be sure to test the cleaner on a less visible area before using it on the stain to avoid damaging the carpet.

Deep Cleaning

It is important to perform a deep cleaning of the carpet every year or two, depending on the traffic it receives. This involves a machine that uses hot water and cleaning products. 

If you do not have access to a carpet cleaning machine, you can hire a professional to do it for you.

Special Care

Another tip to extend the life of your carpet would be to remove shoes before walking on it. This will prevent dragging in dust and dirt from the bottom of your shoes. 

If you have heavy furniture on your carpet, it may cause dents. Place protectors under the furniture legs to help distribute the weight.


By following these simple maintenance tips, you can keep your carpet clean and in good condition for a long time.
