While regular vacuuming is a great way to ensure that the majority of dirt and debris doesn’t penetrate deep into your carpet fibres, it can only remove so much. The problem is that any debris that remains lodged in your carpet will start to wear away the fibres of your carpet as it gets walked over. As such, high-traffic areas like hall, stair, and landing carpets are particularly at risk and the end result is a carpet that looks tired, flat, and lifeless.
With this in mind just how do you keep your hall, stairs, and landing carpets looking like new?
The answer is to have your carpets regularly cleaned by a trusted professional. The problem with this is that most people only call in a carpet cleaner when there’s obvious signs of wear and tear such as staining and/or discolouration. In high traffic areas this can occur pretty quickly. Unfortunately this is akin to ‘shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted‘. In many cases when the carpet is really bad, all the carpet cleaner can do is to implement a damage limitation exercise.
On the contrary, by having a regular cleaning plan in place, a good carpet cleaner can not only prolong the life of your carpets, they can also save you money and keep your hall, stairs, and landing carpets looking like new.
Although most people can get away with having low-traffic areas such as bedrooms professionally cleaned once every couple of years, if you want to maintain the condition of high-traffic areas such as hallways and stairs, they need to be professionally cleaned frequently. In most cases for high-traffic areas we would recommend professional cleaning every 6 months. Even if your carpet looks clean, chances are it won’t be. What’s more, your hall and stairways are usually the first places visitors see, so it’s even more important to maintain them if you want to create a good first impression.
So what can you do to maintain your carpets?
Aside from calling in the pros, high-traffic areas should be vacuumed regularly. We suggest 2-3 times a week. This will help to remove any dry debris in between carpet cleaning visits so that any dirt, dust, or particles aren’t being ground deep into your carpet fibres. This culmination of regular vacuuming and regular carpet cleaning will ensure you keep your hall, stairs, and landing carpets looking like new for many years to come.
