Measures to be taken to maintain your Carpet

Carpets make a home look presentable and beautiful. However if proper measures are not taken to maintain them, the life of the carpet will be short lived. There are certain ways and methods you can use to keep your carpet well maintained. These particular methods can help your favorite carpet be around for a long time.

Use doormats, not carpets – A main reason why carpets get worn off quickly are because people make use of the carpets like doormats. Carpets should not be used to wipe your feet, instead make use of the doormat before steeping foot on the carpet. This way you help prevent dust and dirt from settling on your carpet.

Vacuum Regularly – The best way to maintain your carpet is to vacuum it regularly. Mostly carpets get worn off because they have a tendency to gather a lot of dust and dirt. This dust and dirt cause it to deteriorate faster. However vacuuming can help prolong the life of your carpets if you Vacuuming daily

Prevent dropping Drinks and Eatables on the Carpet – Prevent eating or drinking near your carpet. This can lead to accidents like dropping your wine glass or a cup of tea on the carpet and end up dealing with an irritating stain. However if you happen to create a stain by dropping your coffee or wine glass, make sure you clean the stain as soon as possible, or it might end up leaving a permanent stain.

Keep Carpets Fresh and Deodorized – If your carpet looks clean, make sure it smells good too. If your carpet looks clean doesn't mean they are as clean as you think. The carpet can be carrying a batch of harmful bacteria that can be causing your carpet to stink.  Hence it is very important to deodorize and freshen the smell of carpets to prevent the growth of these harmful bacteria.

Here are 8 reasons why you should choose Professional Carpet Cleaning

Most people assume that they do not need skilled carpet cleaners. That’s where we are wrong. There are numerous reasons why people should get their carpets cleaned by skilled cleaners. Let’s have a look at eight different ways to get them cleaned for a start. If any of these apply to you, then you might want to consider getting professional carpet cleaning for your home.
  1. When you have children, who are adorable little mess-makers, they track mud on your floors, dribble paint, drop food, and do a whole lot of additional things that can be devastating to the overall appearance of your carpets. They have a tendency to make a lot more ‘foot traffic’ than anything else.
  2. Little toddlers, pets who make a lot of mess, drool, soil the place and leave horrible little ‘surprises’ on your carpets.
  3. If you have tough stains in your carpets and have tried to clean it on your own, a professional service can assist you to get the job done. They have specialized tools that can certainly make what you envisage without a solution - very plausible.
  4. If you are hosting an event, it’s pretty obvious you would want your entire house to look wonderful. Of course, this includes your carpets. If you want to really astonish your guests, get your carpets cleaned a day or two before the big event.
  5. In the last few years, if you have not had your carpet cleaned, it is advisable that you get it done as soon as possible. This should be done at least once in a year, with minor additional cleaning in between, as required.
  6. If your house is the central hub for everything, or if you have a large amount of people visiting your home on a regular basis, you will probably need to have your carpets professionally cleaned. The more people moving about your house, the more dirt gets deposited onto your carpets. It’s as simple as that.
  7. You want your carpets to appear brand new every time. Moderately get them cleaned now and then.
  8. You want your carpets to “fresh” on a day-to-day basis. Carpets that have been professionally cleaned will be easier to maintain for quite a while in the future as well.

How to Remove Pet Stains and Odors

Well! As we all know, the minute we turn our back, our pet realizes that the new carpet is just the right place to relieve itself.

Even after multiple cleaning attempts, it’s extremely hard to get rid of that smell & stain. In such a case, what could you possibly do?

Find out where it happened
  • Find out which areas are dirty.
  • Train your pet once again to avoid targeting those areas.
  • Outline the stained areas with a chalk.
  • Rinse the "stained area" thoroughly with clean, cool water. After rinsing, remove excess water by blotting.

As long as your pet can smell his own scent, he will continue to return to the "stained area." Even if you aren't able to smell traces of pet urine, your pet surely can.
Make the "stained area" uninviting and unavailable to your pet. Then use positive reinforcement techniques to show him the appropriate place to relieve himself. The re-training period may take a week or more. Remember, it took him time to build the bad habit, and it will take time to replace that habit with a new behavior. So treat your pet with patience and encourage him!

If you are still unable to clean your carpet thoroughly, feel free to call our experts at Classique ChemDry at 1800 213 006. Visit our website for more information -
