How To Prepare Carpets For Winter in the Salt Lake Valley | BCS Cleaning Specialists
Between the snow, salt, rain and mud, your carpets will take a comprehensive beating during winter. Prepare now to preserve your carpets during the colder months following our easy four-step guide.
1 Place New Interior & Exterior Mats at All Entryways
Your first line of defense against the damaging effects of salt, dirt and general dampitude is proper mats outside and inside each exterior door. Textured plastic scraper mats can be placed outside to remove larger salt crystals (no one likes treading on a giant lump of escaped salt in bare feet!) and prevent slipping, while indoor wiper mats help get the majority of the moisture off shoes. More is always better when it comes to mats – they will save a lot of seasonal damage to your carpets and save you’re a considerable amount of extra time vacuuming winter debris that escaped the rigors of your doorstep rituals.
2 Reduce Staining with Preventative Carpet Treatments
There are several different options for carpet treatments that help repel moisture and dirt. Any of our carpet cleaning experts at BCS Utah will be able to advise you in the best carpet treatment for you.
3 Increase Carpet Cleaning Frequencies
It stands to reason that in the winter, it would be necessary to increase the frequency of your carpet cleaning schedule to keep on top of the higher levels of moisture and dirt. Your cleaning frequency will depend on the number of high-traffic areas in your home and how frequently they are used.
4 Stock Up on Both Spot & Deep Cleaners
Have plenty of spot cleaners and deep cleaning solutions on hand to deal with nasty messes quickly and avoid grinding dirt and moisture deeper into your carpets. A little preventative work now goes a long way in helping your carpets to last and stay looking as good as new.
