How to clean carpets at home

Carpets encounter countless messy situations, especially in dense traffic areas and busy households. The carpet fibers make it easy for dirt, pet or human hair, soil, and grime to build-up. The most tedious thing to clean up on a carpet is stains from things like wine, pet urine, food, and any other drinks.

Depending on what you’re trying to clean, there are several methods to try. For dirt and hair, you should obviously vacuum regularly at least once a week, or more for heavy trafficked areas. If you’re going to vacuum, make sure that you use a carpet cleaning solution in powder or shampoo form.

Powdered forms are easier to vacuum up, while carpet shampoos may take a while to dry, so they’re not convenient during busy times. However, carpet shampoos can be beneficial, especially if you have stubborn stains to remove. Use a hard-bristle brush to apply shampoo and scrub the areas with the stains.

How often should you clean your carpets?

How often you should clean your carpets, depend on how often they get soiled and which areas you'll need to clean. The living room carpets will get dirty more often, which means you'll need to clean them regularly. The carpets in your bedroom or near the bathroom, kitchen, or dining area should be cleaned often too since these are also high-traffic areas where spillage happens often.

If you only have one or two people in the household and no pets, you can get away with vacuuming heavy-traffic carpet areas 1-2 times a week. If you have children or small animals, you might have to vacuum once every two days or so. In addition to cleaning the carpets yourself, getting them professionally cleaned once in a while is highly recommended.

For carpets with light soiling, it’s good to get them professionally cleaned once every two years and more if there’s heavy soiling. If you’re looking for professional carpet cleaning service in Fullerton, contact us.
