You might see carpet as a material that takes a lot of work. Hardwood or tile seems like the better option, as you can sweep up messes easily and immediately. However, there are downsides that come with hard floor surfaces, such as the need for refinishing and the risk of scratches or stains. Carpet, though harder to deeply clean, is far less maintenance-heavy. But if you’re going to make it last a lifetime, you’ll need to take the proper steps to prolong its longevity.
It’s a weekly cleaning chore–and, if your vacuum is subpar, this can be a torturous task. But there are ways to make this easier on yourself, and it greatly increases the lifespan of your carpet. Carpet fibers are delicate, and when dirt and hair settle into the synthetic material, it can cause wear and tear. Investing in a high quality vacuum can make this job much easier.
It’s worth the effort. Not only will this help your carpet to last longer, it also brightens the surface and makes it look factory-fresh once again. Some dirt and dust is so embedded in your carpet can’t be removed by a simple weekly vacuum routine. In order to make sure your carpet is completely clean, you’ll need a professional cleaning service about once a year, especially if you have any pets.
Dirty air ducts and dusty surfaces can cause damage to your carpet, because the particles fall and embed themselves in the fibers. Have your air ducts cleaned and your surfaces dusted on a regular basis, to make sure you aren’t allowing any unneeded dirt to penetrate your carpet.
