Carpets give additional designs and ornaments, especially in our living room where we welcome our guests. Being exposed to sunlight and different people make it dull and need cleaning once in a while too. And the truth is, if you don’t clean your carpet, you are putting it to permanent damage, and damaged carpet calls for replacement and does add to your expenses. Keeping it clean is just as important as cleaning any other furniture, fixtures, and fittings in your home. A carpet without regular cleaning produces unwanted smells and shows visible signs of dirt.

Is it worth getting the carpet cleaned?

Definitely yes. To avail, a carpet cleaning company is worth it. Carpet cleaners are not that cheap but hiring one has several good benefits. Here they are: 

  1. They clean your carpet more thoroughly and deeply than you can. Carpet cleaners are trained and use machines to make your carpet look new.
  2. They will help your carpet last longer which will make you save more money on carpet replacement.
  3. Because of their equipment, they will make your carpet look better and smell cleaner.
  4. You save a lot of time and hassle.

Checking out a carpet cleaning service would be the best option, but if you are too tired to use big machines and appliances, we will give you tips on how to clean your favorite carpet by yourself. 

Here are the easiest and fastest steps to clean carpets:

  1. Use of baking soda. This is the simplest ingredient to clean the carpet. Sprinkle it over the carpet and vacuum thoroughly to remove loose debris. It also works to remove odors from the carpet.
  2. A mixture of shampoo and warm water. Combine two drops of carpet shampoo with warm water in a clean spray bottle. Spray over the carpet slowly to not saturate the fibers.
  3. Use a carpet brush to brush off any trapped dirt.
  4. Soak up the area with dry towels to remove as much moisture as possible.
  5. Fill a clean spray bottle with fresh water and spray on the same area.
  6. Get another set of dry and clean towels to soak up and lift the remaining moisture.
  7. Finish your cleaning by using a carpet grooming brush.

But how often should you clean your carpet? Well, most carpet cleaning services recommend carpets are cleaned every 6-18 months depending on the amount of traffic. If you have young children and pets, it is required to have a more regular deep clean due to the increased amount of dirt and hair that gets into them.
