Getting Your Carpet Clean

Jan 12, 2008
While some people go for hardwood floors, many people will tell you that the way to go is to get carpeting in your home. Getting up on cold winter mornings to the comfort of a carpeted floor is a great thing, and many people enjoy it. However, there is one drawback - having to clean those carpets.

Good vacuums are the first step to having really clean carpets. Most of the dirt and other filth that is on your carpet is actually just on the surface, and is dry. A vacuum can often take these dirt and dust particles off of the surface before they float down to the bottom, causing later trouble.

Vacuums vary depending on the size of your house, and you should choose the one that will work for you. If you have pets, and a large sized house, perhaps a central vacuum system is the right choice for your house. These systems allow you to plug in your vacuum head in any room and use the system.

Other house sizes don't need a vacuum that is quite this complex. Canister vacuums are often the way to go for these households, and HEPA filtration systems can be a boost to any of these vacuums. If you have trouble with pet dander and allergies, HEPA filtration will help you out immensely.

But vacuums aren't the last stand in cleaning your carpet. Sometimes, the mess on your carpet isn't dry at all. Mud can get tracked in from outside, for example, or a cup of liquid can be spilled onto the carpet by children or even by adults. These kinds of messes require more than just a simple vacuum.

A home carpet cleaning system can often clean up these small messes, especially if you have a small home. You can clean your carpet by yourself, without having to hire additional help. Or, if you have a lot of dirt to be cleaned, you can hire someone to steam clean your carpets for you.

Carpet cleaners that are meant to be used at home are great for small areas, or for cleaning up little wet messes that occur. If you have pets that have accidents on the rug, or kids that spill grape juice, this type of cleaner works. But it isn't really good for a deep down clean on all areas.

Carpet services that clean your carpets with steam cleaners can really get your carpets their very cleanest. They are great for bigger houses and work quickly to get the job done. But services are expensive and aren't always there when a mess or spill occurs and you need to clean it up.

Choosing which method of cleaning your carpet can be difficult - but it must be done if you want a clean carpet. You do want a clean carpet, because you want to make that carpet last as long as possible, and have it stay in good shape. So take care of your carpet with regular vacuuming and cleaning.
