One of the most dreaded chore is cleaning the carpet. A lot of people think this task is too heavy and time consuming. Just imagine trying to remove heavy stains and at the same time making sure that you’re not damaging the color or the fabric.
But why is it that some people don’t have to sweat it out when cleaning their carpets? The secret is not exactly a secret at all. You just need to find the right cleaning tools and equipment which can help you clean your carpet in the easiest and most effective way. Most aprons have a hundred pockets or so – all kinds of places to put the cleaning tools of the trade. I’ve seen some people use them like that. But I don’t do it. I wear an apron to protect my clothes, but I’ve never found it particularly efficient to be lugging around all kinds of tools clipped to me. The idea is to get the job done as quickly as possible – having everything in your pockets inhibits movement and just gets in the way. Keeping your home clean
Here are some of the must-haves when it comes to carpet cleaning:
• Vacuum cleaner- a vacuum is a carpet’s best friend. It always goes hand in hand with it since it is the best way to get rid of dust and dirt gathering in your carpet. It is best used for daily cleaning and can help you dust off your carpet in the quickest way possible. Vacuum cleaners are really useful because aside from carpets, they can also be used to clean other surfaces and hard-to-reach areas.
• Carpet brush- one of the worst enemies of carpets is hair and fur be it from humans or pets alike. It can be tricky to remove them even with vacuum cleaners. The best tool to use is the carpet brush. There are several options in the market but it is best to pick one which has a variety of purposes from picking up hair and fur to caring for the fibers of your carpet. Just make sure you know how to use it properly and moderately as mismanagement can cause damage to your carpet.
• Cotton towels- you’ve probably heard of the tip that you should immediately clean the stains from your carpet especially the spills. Cotton towels are the best tools to use. Every time something spills on the carpet, it is best to immediately dry it out with highly absorbent cotton towels. This will help avoid the stain from seeping into the very fiber of the carpet which would make it more difficult to remove.
These are the three basic tools you’ll need for cleaning your carpet. There are also a lot of other tools out there which can also help you make carpet cleaning a lot easier. However, you have to be careful in choosing the tools as some might be effective cleaners but they can cause damage to the carpets. Always act with caution.
