Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.
IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
- Regular vacuuming
- Spot removal
- Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
- Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
- Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet
Doing these things will help to expand the life of your carpet and also help it stay clean in between carpet cleanings. When your ready for a carpet cleaning, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood at 636-537-5400.
