Your carpet will surely get dirty one way or the other and that is why you need the services of a professional carpet cleaner from time to time. It can be somewhat frustrating however, to see your carpet dirty again after a few weeks. So, how do you continue maintaining that clean look after they have been cleaned thoroughly?
Firstly, you need to have a consistent vacuuming schedule and be dedicated to it. Your carpet should be vacuumed according to the amount of traffic each area receives. For areas that receive plenty of foot traffic, vacuum 3 to 5 times a week. If you have pets it is recommended to vacuum daily.

Whenever something is spilled on your carpet, do not wait for the day when a professional cleaner will come knocking before removing the stains. Some of these stains and spills may end up becoming permanent because they were not taken care off as soon as they occurred. Simply make use of warm water and a paper towel to remove the stains and spills. For pet stains you can mix a half cup of white vinegar with a quart of warm water.
