White is a color (or absence of color) that evokes elegance, purity, and lightness. However, it’s also the color that’s easiest to get dirty. This is why, if you want to bring the wonderful traits mentioned above into your home through your carpet, you need to keep your flooring spotless. With this in mind, the post below will share a few tips on how you can make sure that your white carpeted floors stay white.

How to Maintain Your White Carpets

Avoid Having a Dirty Carpet

Keeping your white carpets clean has a lot to do with avoiding getting them dirty in the first place:
  • Vacuum your white carpets thoroughly about 3 times a week to prevent dust buildup
  • Instill a “no shoes” policy at home so that no one drags dirt into the carpet through them.
  • Use a stain repellent on your carpeted floors to prevent stains from sticking to them.
  • Try not to carry food or other potentially damaging substances from one place to another. 
  • Protect high traffic areas in your home with area rugs and mats. 

Deal with Mishaps Effectively

If an accident happens on your carpet (and it will at some point), act fast and follow these tips:
  • Eliminate any excess with a spoon or cloth. 
  • Avoid scrubbing the area as much as you can. 
  • If there’s residue left behind, try to blot it off with a clean towel (do not scrub!).
  • Spray the area with a mix of water and vinegar. 
  • Use a cloth to the dab and lift the stain.
  • Repeat the last step until you’ve removed as much of the stain as possible. 
  • If the stain is still visible, turn to hydrogen peroxide to bleach the carpet (use as instructed).
  • Allow the carpet to dry completely before using it again. Open windows and doors to accelerate this process.
