Keeping your carpets clean until your next cleaning appointment is critical following a professional carpet cleaning. Cleaning your carpets can improve your health and the quality of your indoor air, but it will also extend the life of your carpet.
After your carpet has been professionally cleaned by your local Prescott Valley carpet cleaning expert, follow these tips to keep it clean.
Stay off the carpet until it’s completely dry.
Before stepping on your carpet, we recommend you wait until it has completely dried. Turning on ceiling fans can help speed up the drying process.

Wait a while before moving your furniture.
Furniture should not be moved back until the carpet has completely dried. Moving furniture onto a wet carpet can cause the carpet under the furniture to take longer to dry and color transfer and re-soiling. Prescott Valley carpet cleaning experts will advise based on the type of carpet.
Immediately clean any stains or spills.
Spills and spots should always be cleaned up as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the longer a spill sits on the carpet, the more difficult it is to remove it.
It’s also crucial to use natural cleaners instead of harsh chemicals. Another tip is to blot spills rather than touch them because rubbing spreads the spill and causes it to sink into the carpet fibers.
Do you vacuum only when your carpet appears to require it? Whether you believe the carpet needs it, vacuuming regularly will keep it looking clean for longer after a professional carpet cleaning.
Vacuuming eliminates dirt and particles that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Vacuuming regularly also aids in the removal of allergens and other pollutants that are transported within. For example, Prescott Valley carpet cleaning can remove allergens deep in carpet fibers.
Furniture should be rotated.
Every few months, rotate the furniture to provide room for new traffic areas. When your furniture remains in the exact location for years, you’ll continue to walk in the same traffic areas, causing these areas to become dingy and the fibers to wear down faster than the rest of your carpet.

Protect Your Carpet With Prescott Valley Carpet Cleaning Experts
Having a carpet protectant sprayed after it’s been freshly cleaned is one of the most acceptable ways to avoid soiling and extend the life of your carpet.
Spills and dirt are deterred from permeating the fibers by a carpet protectant. However, because carpet protectant wears off with time, it’s necessary to have them applied once a year, especially in high-traffic areas of your home.
