How Carpet Cleaning Can Help You Save The Environment

Did you know that every year, a staggering 400,000 tonnes of carpet waste go to landfill? While there have been many initiatives that look at recycling carpet, we think that one of the best ways to help protect the environment is to not send it to landfill in the first place.

If your carpet is filthy and full of stains, you might think replacing it is the only option. But with the right cleaning equipment, restoring your carpet to its former glory isn't as hard as you think. What’s more, there are ways that you can extend the life of your carpets to save you the future expense of replacing them. Here are our top tips for making your carpet last longer:

1. Use door mats

It might seem like an obvious suggestion, but you’d be surprised at the number of households that don’t have mats at the entrance to their home. This simple addition can help protect your carpet from grime on people’s shoes, making muddy patches a thing of the past.

2. Clean stains immediately

Spilling something like red wine on your carpet can stain it forever. However, if you act fast and get it up as quickly as possible, you have much more chance of saving your carpet. Make sure you’re always prepared by having a high-quality carpet stain remover in your cleaning cupboard so that you can pounce on accidents when they happen.

3. Hoover regularly

Hoovering your carpet regularly can really help in keeping it going for longer. Furthermore, it can help rid your home of dust, pet hair and dander that can affect air quality and affect your breathing. If hoovering isn’t your thing or you’re short of time, calling in a professional cleaner can help.

4.Regular professional deep cleaning

Although it might seem an unnecessary expense, hiring a professional carpet cleaner to clean your carpets a couple of times a year can give them a new lease of life. It’s also far cheaper to maintain them in this way rather than fully replacing them later.

5. Move furniture

Furniture can damage carpet by wearing and squashing the pile. Moving furniture around every few months helps the carpet by preventing premature wearing and means you can clean all areas effectively.
