Carpet is one of the home supplies that provide different values in a room. Carpets are usually easy to absorb water, dirt, dust, animal hair, even fleas or mites, so the carpet requires special care. Aside from that, you should call the if your carpet has been damaged due to water leakage at your home.

The following are some tips for caring for your carpet:

1. Maintaining Carpet Cleanliness

Clean the carpet with a dust cleaner or vacuum cleaner at least once a week. Dirt and dust are usually very easy to stick to the carpet and if left too long it will accumulate and have a negative impact on cleanliness and health. Perform cleaning with a vacuum cleaner slowly because the vacuum cleaner also requires time to clean the dust.

If there is a spill of water or drink on the carpet, clean it immediately, because if it is left too long the spill will dry up and damage the carpet. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb the spill, then pour baking soda over the area and leave it for 15 minutes. When the spill is completely dry, you can clean it with a vacuum cleaner.

If you have difficulty removing stains, use a spray bottle filled with vinegar to spray a little stained area then wipe with a cloth. Don’t worry that your house will smell like vinegar because the smell will disappear in 24 hours. Just make sure your carpet is not moisturized for too long.

2. Do not walk with bare feet

We recommend using socks or slippers when walking on the carpet because the feet naturally produce sweat and oil and when they land on the carpet, they stick to it and those sweat and oil may cause dirt and dust to stick a lot easier on the carpet.

3. Avoid washing it by using a detergent

Avoid washing carpets with soap, because the foam produced by soap will leave residual remnants that will actually tie more dust to the carpet. In addition, the residual soap that is still on the carpet may also weaken its fibers, making the carpet vulnerable to rip and tear.
