Soils found in carpet are made up of mostly dry and sandy particles, which are gritty and abrasive. If carpet is not vacuumed regularly, these soils will grind against the carpet fibers with every footstep taken – dulling the carpets finish. Over time, soil becomes embedded in the carpet pile and begins to cut into the base of the carpet fibers, leading to premature wear on carpet fibers.
Preventative Care: The most important thing you can do for your carpet is to vacuum regularly. Carpet is designed to hide soils so be sure to vacuum before the carpet appears dirty. Placing mats or rugs at each entry to your home will help trap soils at the door.
Schedule Deep Cleanings: While vacuuming regularly will help reduce the amount of dry soils on the carpets surface, it will not prevent soils from becoming embedded deep in the carpet pile over time. Once soils become embedded in the carpet pile, it will stay trapped until it is removed by professional extraction. Hot water extraction is the most effective carpet cleaning method that is recommended by nearly all carpet manufacturers. It is the only carpet cleaning method that can remove soil and residue from deep down in the fibers. It is also the most effective method in giving restorative deep cleaning results.
