Cleaning Your Carpets After Winter
Now is the time of year you want to start thinking about the carpet in your home for the warm weather months. “Carpets get a lot of abuse during the winter months. With dirt brought in from snow and outdoor debris now is the time to give them some attention before the spring cleaning bug hits. The first step to good cleaning is frequent and thorough vacuuming. “Frequent” means at least once a week. “Thorough” means going back and forth six to eight times on each section of the carpet.
If the carpet is left untreated, dusty airborne particles can dull the colors. Fortunately, the original color is usually under the soil, but if left untreated for a long time, soil is absorbed into the fibers causing a yellow cast that can be difficult if not impossible to remove.”
