While yes, those who keep the house (wives, husbands or children) should have the carpets cleaned more often than just before the holiday season, it’s by far the most popular time to call on carpet cleaning in Torrance. The house is about to be on display to family and friends, so it’s only natural to want to put your best floor forward. To achieve the best professional results, it’s important to take some care of the carpet during the rest of the year as well. Take note of the following tips when it comes to caring for your carpet.
Is Your Vacuum Set At the Appropriate Level?
It’s tempting to set the vacuum cleaner to its lowest point, allowing it to suck up as much dirt as possible, but doing this is likely to end up damaging the machine. If the cleaner is set on too low of a setting, the carpet can be damaged, not to mention the roller brush and the drive belt. On the other hand, when set at too high of a setting, the dirt will just sit there. Here’s a tip on finding the right setting: start at the highest level, turning it on and lowering it until you can feel the tug of the vacuum wanting to go forward.
How Often Should I Vacuum?
No, every day is not the correct answer here. Ideally, however, twice a week is best, especially in the high traffic areas. The rest of the floors can be pushed back to once a week. The point here is to remove soil stains before they become stains requiring a professional carpet cleaning in Torrance. Instead, do like Barney Fife and nip it in the bud. But, before you do, make sure you’re starting with a clean bag or filter. Dirty bags or filters can cut the suction power in half!
If you do these things on a regular basis, it’s possible to get away with only calling the carpet cleaners before major get-togethers. But, whenever there is a job too big for you and your vacuum, contact us for the muscles behind a clean carpet.
