There are a lot of do’s and don’ts when it comes to carpet cleaning. Get one step wrong and you might end up damaging your carpet forever. Ignoring the whole routine of cleaning them might tarnish the entire beauty and the vibe of the space they are placed in. They can become potentially stacked up with dirt, allergens, and microorganisms that can take a toll on the health of your people.
You don’t want that, do you?
Here are some of the methods and procedure on how to clean carpets effectively
Prepare the space around you before you go into your carpet cleaning routine. This would make the whole vacuuming process easier. Pick up all the litter especially tiny scraps of paper or small items like coins which can clog the whole equipment and its mechanism.
It is a best practice to dust and broom your floor, blinds, windows, windowsills, baseboards, and walls before you get down to vacuuming your carpet. This would prevent your carpet from getting dirty again after you’ve cleaned it.
There are different kinds of nozzle attachments that are available in the market these days. Some are specifically designed for cleaning hard-to-reach areas.
Since carpet fibers are usually twisted, you have to vacuum both horizontally and vertically. Through this, you’ll ensure that every part of your fibers is reached. You can ideally go over this routine twice a week or three times to ensure they are on point.
Shampooing is an effective method when it comes to carpet cleaning services. It helps remove tough stains that have traveled all the way to the interiors of the fiber structures. The tuft fibers along the edges can easily go unattended in the vacuuming routine but shampooing them and gently rubbing them would make them shine their best.
A company like JBN Cleaning sticks to using shampoos that are organically made so we don’t harm human health or the environment in the process.
3. Spot cleaning
It is natural that unexpected spillages happen to your carpet resulting in a serious stain. It is our natural first instinct that we immediately try to rub it away. This will only make these stains travel all the way through the interior of the knitted fibers, making them irreversible to wipe off.
You can instead try blotting the stained surface with a cleaning solution. You can do this by using a cloth or sponge. Pay close attention to the direction of blotting too. It is advisable that you blot inwards so that you don’t let the stains spread any further.
4. Lint rollers and squeegee
It’s the simple adaptations that can take your carpet cleaning to the next level. Lint rollers are powerful even than vacuum cleaners since they tend to minute dust particles and crumbs which can penetrate deep into the fiber network of your carpets.
A little elbow grease and the rollers can help you get all these particles out. Squeegee, even when it is predominantly intended for window cleaning, is designed to dislodge all the minute dust particles. Water is down a little and uses it on your carpet once to see the results for yourself.
5. Steam cleaning
Also known as hot water extraction or wet cleaning, steam cleaning is one of the majorly used methods by professional carpet cleaners.
Here vaporized water heated to extreme temperatures is used at high pressures. A suitable cleaning agent is first applied to the surface of the carpet. The carpet is then subjected to extreme agitation with steam that is blown through a piece of equipment that typically looks like a vacuum cleaner. The area is then gently rinsed until the particles fall out. Any accumulated dust at any depth inside the inner fibers will typically be extracted through this.
6. Dry cleaning
`The procedure involves the application of cleaning compounds on the bottom side of the carpet. Through a rotary brush of counter-rotation that is brushed on the upper side, the compounds are whipped to foam and are spread to settle everywhere on the carpet. These are made of biodegradable materials that vaporize easily when exposed to air for too long. One major pro of dry cleaning is that it is suitable to be adapted for any type of carpet. All you need to do is slightly adjust the composition of the chemical compounds that are used to make the whole process feasible.
7. Deep cleaning
A deep cleaning routine is done typically once every few months depending on the traffic that walks in and out of your premises. This typically involves an end-to-end inspection along with added sanitization and disinfection routines. This is usually done by professional carpet cleaning services since they have the complete knowledge that is required.
This ensures that your carpets stay clean on the surface and clear on the interior free from germs and harmful microbes.
8. Going with professionals
Carpet cleaning is a sensitive task and you definitely don’t wanna screw up because the repair and replacement costs are pretty hefty. Relying on an in-house janitorial is also not a great option since you’d have to find the right resources, equipment, and supplies which are extremely expensive than hiring professional cleaners.
The implementation of all the above-described methods might sound easy on paper but there are a lot of technical considerations that are complicated. A professional like JBN Cleaning backed by years of experience will be your best option if you want to make your investment count.
