Whether it’s snow, rain or hail winter comes with a lot of wetness and when this is brought into your home on shoes or on the bottom of your pet’s feet the water will settle into the fibres of your carpet. Wet carpets can lead to a lot of problems which include creating an environment which will allow the rapid growth of bacteria or mould. If you notice that this is the case in your home if your home starts to develop an unpleasant odour coming from your carpet.
Not only does snow and rain make your carpet wet, but dirt and debris might be tracked in as well as salt and other chemicals are used at this time of year to help melt ice and snow on roads and pavements. When this is brought into your home it can cause staining and discolouration.
One of the best ways to combat these issues is to make people take their shoes off before coming into your home or walking onto the carpet. Placing shoes in a rubber or plastic tray will ensure that water and other outdoor elements are contained which will also make for easier clean-up. It will also reduce the amount of dirt, water and debris that gets into your carpets.
It is also a good idea to vacuum your more often to remove salt, dirt and other debris. You might also consider getting your carpet professionally cleaned. This will remove any dirt and debris that may be tracked into your home. Getting your carpet professionally cleaned will get your carpet looking like brand new and extend its life. Calling in the professionals to help with carpet cleaning is extremely beneficial, as the right tools and supplies will be used to clean the floor properly and efficiently.
Because of the holidays, you are more than likely going to have more friends and family visiting than usual, which means your carpet will be being used a lot more than usual. With more feet going over the carpet, this could lead to fibres that get smooshed down or carpets can even be pulled back from the tack strips. When you notice these issues with your carpets, the best course of action to take is to call Wrennalls carpet cleaners to keep your carpet looking as good as new.
