SAN FRANCISCO - July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ - Keeping carpets clean is a challenge at any time of the year, but when you combine summer sports, gardening, and other outdoor activities with enthusiastic family members and friends, maintaining clean carpets can be even more difficult. COIT, a leading supplier of specialty cleaning and disaster restoration services headquartered in San Francisco, is offering some basic tips to help you keep your carpets clean during the active warm weather months.
"It's important to keep carpets as dirt-free as possible so that they will look fresh, and last longer," Bob Kearn, President and CEO of COIT, said. "In addition to improving the appearance of your home, clean carpets minimize indoor odors and the presence of pollen and other allergens that can negatively affect your family's health."
There are a number of steps you can take at home to keep your carpets clean and fresh. COIT recommends that you vacuum more frequently during the summer – twice or even three times a week if possible – and that you address any spills or spots as soon as you notice them. For tips on removing pet stains and other substances from carpets, visit the stain removal guide.
In addition to frequent vacuuming and immediate spot removal, COIT recommends that you ask anyone who enters your home to remove their footwear first. You can place a sign at the entrance and supply a boot tray where shoes can be deposited upon entering. Some homeowners leave clean slippers near the tray for the use of their guests.
You can also minimize the presence of dirt on your carpets by asking a professional cleaning company to apply a carpet protectant such as COITGard™ stain-resistant protective coating. A protectant will repel dirt and mud and prevent them from becoming ground into carpet fibers, and will make it easier to clean up spills. Professionally applied deodorizers are also available.
COIT recommends that you schedule a professional carpet cleaning service at the beginning of summer, after any party or event during which guests track dirt and mud through the house, and at the end of the summer season to eliminate lingering dirt, spots, and allergens from your carpeting before fall. A regular schedule of cleaning and maintenance will protect your carpets, keep them looking and smelling fresh, and increase their longevity.
