Carpet Maintenance Tips
It is a widely and commonly practiced misconception that upholstery shall only be sent for cleaning service when it becomes dull and appears dirty and smelly. If we specifically focus on carpets that constitute as an important part of the upholstery we have at our households and workplaces, there are potential health risks involved with carpets. Carpets are often an ensemble of luxury however many people in Singapore are allergic to the dust and air particles that embed in the carpets. This is what makes the cleaning of carpets of ultra importance.
You can wash and vacuum your carpet at home too but that would not be able to remove dust and dirt piled up in the depths of your carpet thus you would need to go for professional cleaning. We are one of the few cleaning service providers that have imported vacuums brought in to provide you with the deep cleaning of your carpet. If you engage with us, your carpet would no longer look dirty and dull. We would professionally clean and provide you with soft and squeaky clean carpets.
The two most effective tips for carpet cleaning to prevent allergies are listed below.
1. Vacuum your carpet once or twice a week
Vacuum your carpet once a week to prevent dirt from embedding itself. Frequent vacuuming prolongs the life of your carpet. You should be aware of the fact that in order to prevent any allergies, you should take your carpet for cleaning to a professional cleaning service provider like us. This shall be done every year or semi annually to be on the safe side. We use around seventy percent less water to clean carpets. This is because the less the water used in carpet cleaning, the less likely it is for the allergens to settle on the carpet.
2. Use chemical free cleaning formulations
Use chemical free cleaning formulations to clean blot or spills. Chemicals trigger allergies in children and pets and thus can cause asthma in small kids. They can also cause skin allergies like rashes on the fur of the pets and skin of humans. Use green friendly formulations that are hundred percent chemical safe or mix one part white vinegar with one part water and pour it into a handheld sprayer. Spray the solution on the entire stained area and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes to soak in before pressing a clean sponge to the affected area
It shall be of noteworthy significance that if you use shampoos and detergents to clean your carpet, then it could prove to be giving rise to allergens. This is because the fragrances of these shampoos and detergents could prove to be allergic therefore it is best to use fragrance free detergents. More so, if you are seriously allergic or are prone to get allergic due to carpet cleaning, then ask a friend or a family member to do the carpet cleaning for you.
A precaution that you shall take is to wear a mask while doing the carpet cleaning. The carpet cleaning should take place in a clean environment that is dust free. Keeping in view these tips, you can maintain your carpet and be allergy free.
