Keeping your carpets clean in a desert climate is quite a challenge. Dust, sand, and other debris make it difficult to keep your carpets looking their best, so preserve your flooring’s appearance by booking a SERVIZ Carpet Cleaner.
Check Your Foot Soles. Your foot soles are a carpet's biggest enemy. Especially in a desert climate. Besides the desert wind, your foot soles carry a lot of dust, that gets tracked in high-traffic areas.
Traffic Lane Gray. Over time, carpet can develop "traffic lane gray," especially in a dusty, low-humidity environment like the desert. Traffic lane gray is the obvious "lane" on the floor where people traffic daily. To avoid this, we recommend moving your furniture into a different configuration every 2-3 years or so.
Vacuum Regularly. In a desert climate, the effects of dust and sand can be mitigated by regularly scheduled vacuuming. Once a week should be enough to keep your carpet in good shape, but vacuum as often as necessary. It will prolong the life and beauty of your carpet or rug.
Clear the Way. Move as much furniture and breakables out of the way as possible. Clearing the area makes it easier for a carpet cleaner to maneuver with equipment, cutting down on the time it takes for them to clean.
Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Not vacuuming can make a carpet look dirtier than it really is, making it difficult for a carpet cleaning professional to give an accurate estimate. Regular, once-a-week vacuuming also helps cut down on pet smell.
Door mats and area rugs. Welcome mats and area rugs will help catch extra soil, taking some of the strain off your carpets.
"Green" Spot treatment. Spot treatment with white vinegar and water in a 50-50 ratio does an excellent job of preventing spots from becoming stains. Over the counter carpet cleaners can often do more harm than good by leaving a soap and chemical residue behind on the carpet. To keep your carpets looking new, hire a SERVIZ Carpet Cleaning Pro.
