Mark It Clean always recommends that you have your carpets routinely cleaned 6-12 Months a year.

The sand, dirt, pet hair, and spills your kids may have can really damage your carpets and if you don’t have a professional carpet cleaner come in with professional carpet cleaning equipment to come in to rid those carpets of stains and deep clean your carpet won’t last long.
Routinely vacuuming and professionally carpet cleaning will make those carpets last a lot longer.
1. Taking Off Shoes:
It’s good to consider how much your carpet is seeing foot traffic. If you have a larger family you may want to consider everyone taking off their shoes before they come into the home. Shoes will bring in lots of dirt and dander which will ultimately damage your carpet fiber. The more you walk over areas the more you are damaging the surface of the carpet. When kids or you run in when it’s raining or snowing and you bring in the moisture you will actually damage the carpet more because you are getting the carpet wet.
2. Keep Carpet Dry
After a cleaning or if the carpet is wet it’s ok to turn up your heat or open windows if it’s nice out. Heat always makes carpets dry faster which will prevent bacteria growth, mold growth, mildew etc. You always want to get moisture out of the carpet as quickly as possible. The longer water sits in carpet the more likely it will go deep into the carpet pad and mold and mildew will grow. The smell of mold and mildew is awful and it can cause more problems where you have to remove carpet and sometimes
flooring depending on the spread.
3. Sometimes it’s a good idea to use things under furniture to prevent it making indentations in the
You can do various things like moving furniture around to help prevent carpet losing life because of furniture. If you have your carpets professionally cleaned it’s wise to wait until the carpet is completely dry before moving furniture back onto the carpet.
4. Using Rugs
If you have problem areas or certain places on the carpet that just get a lot of wear and tear it’s ok to protect those areas with a rug. Rugs help to protect areas from getting more dirt pounded on them. They protect the carpet from losing color and falling apart.
5. Spills & Stains
You always want to clean up spills as soon as they happen. Even if you can’t get it completely out it helps when you have your carpets professionally cleaned. Use dish soap, baking soda, and simple non- toxic agents on the spills. Then you want to blot the spot – do not rub it. When a Mark It Clean
technicians comes to clean your carpets point out those spots so we can use a pre-treatment in those areas to ensure we get it out.
Stay away from toxic chemicals like bleach because you will ultimately destroy your carpet. Give Mark It Clean a call for a professionally deep cleaning. Call 562-726-292 for a free estimate and we can schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
