One of the trickiest things for homeowners with kids is managing to keep the carpet clean. In this blog we will give some advice you might like to follow to ensure your carpets stay as clean as possible:

  1. Baking Soda before turning on the Vacuum

Baking Soda is one the cheapest ways we can clean around the home. All you need to do is simply sprinkle a bit of baking soda around the carpet, particularly in the problem areas and the baking soda will do its thing as an odour eater and help your room to get the freshness back!

  1. Treat any stains right away

The key here is not letting the stain really soak into the carpet. Act fast but do not rub, as this will really engrain the stain in the carpet. Here the trick is simply to blot with a netural coloured paper towel or similar. The reason we use a neutral colour is to ensure that no dye is transferred, which would only compound the issue.

This needs to be continued until the stain is basically dry before it can be vacuumed. The process of vacuuming will thoroughly dry the area and also help to ensure no mould or bacteria issues.

  1. The most effective Stain Remover

Here the key is to select the most effective stain removal tool for the job. So for example you might use baking soda for tea or coffee stains, many would advise using salt for a mud stain etc etc. So a bit of research before attacking a stain really can go a long way!

  1. Get the professionals in from time to time

One of the tricks to keeping a carpet super clean, is to occasionally get the professionals in to bring it back to life. Hiring a carpet cleaning company is not cheap, but it can really work wonders for your carpet.

  1. Use Rugs

One of the benefits of a rug is that it really can be a carpet saver, as well as making the room feel more homely and warm. The placement of the rug is key though. By positioning the rug in a place that is likely to get the most issues with stains, you really can prolong the life of your carpet.

Put simply, a rug can be changed in 5 minutes, whereas a carpet is an entirely different story!
