Move The Furniture
Has it been awhile since you moved that cumbersome couch? Has the task of cleaning under your desk been too daunting to face? Although the carpet under your furniture does not see the same amount dirt and grime buildup as areas that are walked on daily, the carpet will still become dirty with time. If you haven’t moved your furniture in a while, now is the time.
Begin by pushing all your furniture out of the room or into a centralized location so you can reach all the carpeting you normally ignore. Carefully vacuum the area using slow, gentle sweeping motions. If you notice any damaged areas on the carpet, tend to these. Snagged carpet fibers should be snipped, never pulled or tugged. Stains should be treated with gentle solutions, and areas that you cannot seem to get clean should be noted for treatment by a professional team.
Get Rid Of Lingering Odors
Has your carpet retained a musty smell? Have your furry friends left your home less than fresh? Take care of any lingering odors before your guests arrive. One easy fix for less than desirable odors is to sprinkle baking soda across your carpets. Allow the baking soda to soak in the odors for an hour or two and then, simply vacuum the product up.
If you have odors that don’t seem to go away, it is time to call in a professional carpet cleaning team. Steam cleaning is an effective method for ridding your carpets of lingering odors. Talk to our team about odor remediation for rooms that are particularly malodorous.
Purchase Protective Rugs
If you have carpeting in your home that you know will be trodden upon during the holiday season, consider purchasing some protective rugs. You can place rugs in areas that see the most foot traffic. Great areas to protect include carpeted foyers, living rooms, and dining rooms. If you know children or pets will be on your guest list, consider purchasing some rugs for the rooms they will be using. Not only will rugs prevent the carpet from being beaten down by foot traffic, they will also serve as a protective layer against stains and dirt. This will make clean up after the holiday season much easier and more efficient.
Determine Your Shoe Rules
When guests flood your home, will you ask for people to take their shoes off or will you let them leave their shoes on? If you want your guests to go without shoes, make sure you have a convenient and organized location for them to place their shoes upon arrival. If you choose to be a mellow host and allow shoes in your home, consider placing a thick, abrasive rug on your front porch. Guests can use this to brush off debris from their shoes before entering, lessening the amount of damage done to your carpeting.
