As the weather starts to warm up outside, it’s a sign that spring is right around the corner. This also means it is time to start thinking about spring-cleaning. As you look around your home, you might be looking at your carpet, wondering what you can do to take care of it as winter turns to spring. Take a look at some of the most important spring cleaning tips for your Waukesha home’s carpet!

Cleaning a carpet in a Waukesha home

Start With a Thorough Vacuuming of Your Carpet

First, vacuum your rug thoroughly. If your rug is made out of nylon, seagrass, polypropylene, or wool, you can vacuum your rug regularly. If you have pets or children at home, you may need to vacuum your rug a bit more often. Particularly if there is someone in the home who suffers from seasonal allergies, asthma, or COPD, it is critical to vacuum the carpet to remove these allergens from the fibers.

Even though vacuuming is a great place to start, it is still going to leave behind a significant amount of dust that will build up. In order to completely clean your carpet, you need a professional who can get in there with the right cleaners and equipment.

Allow the Rug Space To Breathe

Do you notice that there are odd smells accumulating in your carpet? This tends to happen during a long winter indoors. If you provide your rug with space to breathe, a lot of these odd smells will dissipate.

Take a look at the weather outside. When it is warm, bright, and sunny, take the rug outside (if it is not attached to the floor). With a bit of fresh air, unpleasant scents and odors will release from the fibers and improve the quality of your air indoors. Furthermore, if there is any dirt seated at the bottom of the fibers, it will loosen up, making for an easier cleaning process.

Reach Out to a Trained Professional for Assistance with Flooring in Waukesha

Finally, you should also reach out to a trained professional in Waukesha who has the experience to take perfect care of your carpet. No matter what type of fiber you have, it can certainly benefit from a thorough cleaning from a trained professional. An expert can increase the longevity of your flooring, address any repairs, and thoroughly clean even the most delicate, antique carpets.
