Seven Efficient Manhattan Carpet Cleaning Tips

Are you working hard to master essential Manhattan Carpet Cleaning? Don’t worry – we completely understand. Carpet cleaning can be a frustrating chore, especially when it starts to get repetitive. Why won’t carpet stay clean?

Follow these Manhattan Carpet Cleaning Tips, and you’ll have a cleaner home in no time!

  1. Vacuum daily, even if you don’t see anything on the floor.

The easiest way to keep your carpet clean is to vacuum on a daily basis. If you have carpeted stairs, every other day will be sufficient. Make sure problem areas are a priority, especially if you’ve faced ongoing problems. Even on days when you don’t see anything on the floor, vacuum thoroughly. This includes corners, cracks, nooks, and underneath furniture.

  1. Rotate responsibilities between housemates.

Does all of this Manhattan Carpet Cleaning seem overwhelming? You aren’t alone in your conclusion. Most homeowners struggle to keep their home clean. The main reason? Unhelpful housemates. Rope your housemates into rotating carpet responsibilities by creating a point or prize system. Reward family members who are able to clean a room particularly well, or develop a prize for the best cleaner of the week (or month). You can also create punishments for children, but this doesn’t often serve as a motivator.

  1. Have your carpet steam cleaned once every six to twelve months.

We highly suggest having your carpet professionally steam cleaned once every six to twelve months. To determine when you should have your carpets cleaned, take photos after each steam cleaning. When the carpet begins to darken in color, call your local steam cleaners. If you vacuum daily and follow the steps presented in this list, you’ll likely only need a cleaning once every twelve months. Expensive area rugs should be cleaned separately, depending on their material and upkeep requirements.

  1. Keep pets out of heavily carpeted areas and away from expensive area rugs.

The easiest way to keep hair, germs, and bacteria away from your carpet is to keep animals in other parts of your home. While we all want our cats and dogs to enjoy our living space with us, it isn’t cost-efficient to constantly clean area rugs and carpets. If your dog has a tendency to chew holes in your carpet, this could become another issue altogether. Pets and carpets don’t mix well. If you can separate them, a good portion of your headache will disappear.

  1. Encourage your family to eat in areas with hardwood or tile floors.

You can’t keep family members out of carpeted areas, but you can prevent them from eating or drinking non-clear liquids in them. Encourage your family members to eat in the kitchen and/or dining room. After all, these rooms were designed for eating – most often with hardwood or tile floors underneath them. You can sweep, mop, and vacuum these rooms with little resistance. If your family has a problem, put them in the cleaning rotation. They won’t take long to change their mind.

  1. Contact a team of professionals if your carpet seems discolored or has a slight odor.

If you notice that your carpet seems to smell, contact a team of steam cleaning professionals immediately. This could be a sign of mold, mildew, deep stains, or bacteria within your home. We want to eliminate those toxins and allergens as soon as possible. We’ll use eco-friendly substances and methods to ensure your home is clean and safe for your family. If your carpet is particularly old, you might want to consider replacing it. Old carpet, specifically that which has faced a fair amount of smoke and stains, can’t be steam cleaned to perfection. It needs to be affordably replaced, cleaned, and maintained every single day.

  1. Clean up stains immediately – no exceptions!

This can be difficult for homeowners to fully grasp. If stains aren’t cleaned as soon as they are discovered, they meld into your carpet. You might be able to eliminate the sight, but you won’t be able to eliminate the bacteria that has seeped into your living space. Don’t take the risk of early carpet retirement and replacement. Keep your carpet as clean as you can right now.

 Jen and team were so great to work with. We had a hard task at hand removing adhesive residue from residential hard wood floors. We couldn’t find anyone else up for the task and NYC Steam Cleaning got the job done. Highly recommend this service and team for any floor, carpet, rug, upholstery cleaning needs.

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
