Published: 03/10/2010 by M. Grace

For Austin, Texas residents, carpet cleaning should be done every 6 to 12 months and no less than every 18 months. If you want to extend the frequency of visits by your Austin, Texas carpet cleaning company, you can use these simple tips for carpet protection.

One of the easiest ways to lengthen the time between visits from your Austin, Texas carpet cleaning company is through proper maintenance and cleaning of your carpets. Frequent vacuuming and stain management can help you to get closer to the 18 month mark for visits from your Austin, Texas carpet cleaning company. It is recommended that you vacuum at least once a week, and as much as three times a week, if you have children and/or pets.

Another way to reduce the number of visits from your Austin, Texas carpet cleaning company is to have entrance mats at all of your doors to the outside. If you can avoid tracking soil onto your carpets you will need less frequent carpet cleaning. It will also help to have family and friends remove their shoes upon entering your home. Anything you can do to reduce the amount of dirt tracked onto your carpets will keep them cleaner in the long run.

If you can work quickly to clean up a spill and prevent staining, you will need to call your Austin, Texas carpet cleaning company less frequently. When working with spots, be careful never to rub the spill into the carpet. Rubbing the carpet to lift the spill will spread the spill, as well as potentially damage the carpet fibers. It is essential to thoroughly lift the stain to limit the possibility of the stain reappearing. Using an iron or hair dryer to dry a stain will seal the stain to the carpet fibers.

These simple tips will go a long way towards maintaining your carpet and keeping it looking fresh and clean.
