The holidays are a great time to get together with family and friends, but they can also be a lot of work. If you’re hosting guests in your home, you want to make sure everything is sparkling clean. That includes your carpets! Carpet cleaning might seem like a daunting task, but we’re here to help. Read on for our top tips on how to get your carpets looking their best this holiday season.
Deep clean your carpets before the holidays. This means having professionals, like Peerless, come out clean all the past year’s dirt and debris from your carpets. If you have any stubborn stains, this is the time to have those taken care of.
Prevent stains by being proactive. Make sure everyone is taking their shoes off in your home, use coasters or place drinks in an area where they won’t spill onto the carpet. If you have young children or pets, use rugs at all the entrances to your home so they don’t track in too much dirt and mud. Don’t worry, we clean those too!
Clean up spills immediately. As soon as something is spilled on the carpet, blot it up with a clean cloth or paper towel. Don’t rub the spill, as this will only spread it around and make it harder to clean up. Once you’ve blotted up as much of the spill as possible, treat the area with a carpet stain remover and let it sit for a few minutes before blotting it away. You may need to repeat this process a few times before the stain is completely gone. If you can’t remove the stain or don’t want to try it yourself, give us a call.
This should go without saying, but vacuuming your carpets regularly is one of the best ways to keep them looking their best. If possible, vacuum every day or at least once a week during high traffic periods like the holidays. Pay special attention to areas where people tend to congregate, like in front of the fireplace or near the dining table during holiday parties. A little extra vacuuming now will save you a lot of work later!
Keeping your carpet clean might seem like a daunting task, especially with all that is happening during the holidays, but it doesn’t have to be! By following these simple tips, you can get your carpets looking their best this holiday season. Deep clean your carpets before guests arrive, prevent stains by being proactive, and clean up spills immediately. And don’t forget, Peerless is always here to assist with your carpet cleaning needs, your carpets will thank you for it!
