There are many house cleaning issues faced by households all of the world. In many homes, the carpet comprises most of the residence with the exception of the kitchen and most bathrooms. Therefore it is important to keep the carpet clean for both aesthetic and sanitary value. When hosting guests, it is embarrassing to have stains or other unsightly marks on the carpeting. Also, carpets hold bacteria which can transfer to you and your family.

Common Carpet Treatment Methods

Carpet cleaning unfortunately requires regular maintenance, especially if children live in the residence. To keep carpets sanitary, there are a few common treatment methods you can follow. These include:

• Vacuuming regularly
• Using dust mats
• Treating spills

Vacuuming Regularly

Although this is not an ancient remedy, homeowners still tend to forget to complete this task on a regular basis. They simply wait for a spill or until the carpet looks bad. By vacuuming regularly, you are sucking up almost all the dirt, grime, dust and bacteria that leave within the strands. This will help you keep the carpet looking good and sanitary at all times. To help you stay on track with carpet maintenance, its advantageous to create a cleaning schedule that includes how often you plan to vacuum, your treatment system and who will be completing the task.

Using Dust Mats

A less common method of keeping the carpets tidy is to place a dust mat at entrances to all carpeted rooms. This will capture any excess dust from the feet of those entering thus making your routine vacuuming much easier and keeping the carpet looking presentable at all times.

Treating Spills

Once a spill occurs, it is beneficial to remove it immediately. First soak up the spill with a paper towel or rag (do not grind into the carpet). Next, dampen the carpet with a wet rag and spray or sprinkle carpet treatment on the stain. Then let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes and vacuum it up. Then rinse and repeat until it disappears. The longer you let it sit, the more difficult it will be to remove from the carpet.

Cleaning Systems

There are two primary carpet treatment systems that will help you cleanse your carpet more effectively and in a shorter amount of time: steam treatments and dry carpet washing. When performed properly, each of these will effectively remove grease, oils, dirt and whatever else stains the carpet.

Treating the carpet on a regular basis is an essential aspect of house cleaning. Creating a schedule will help you fall into a routine and be diligent with this chore. Also, using dust mats is a great way to drag less scum onto the carpet. Finally, removing spills immediately after they occur will leave less of a stain after. Carpet treatment can be a daunting task but having a plan will make it much more streamlined.
