Carpets need to be maintained properly in order to extend their lifespan and keep them soft and pretty. This means that there are things you should do and things that you shouldn’t do to keep them that way. In this installment, Colonial Cleanpro in Petersburg will give you a few tips on what not to do to have a nice carpet for longer.

What Not to Do to Your Carpet

Letting it Get Filthy

If you let filth go into the depths of your carpet, it’ll be more difficult to get out afterwards.

Not Drying it Properly

Whenever a spill or leak reaches your floor, you should dry it properly to keep it from rotting.

Allowing Mold to Grow

You should act appropriately at the first sight of hazardous mold growth in your flooring. 

Mistreating It

Use the best tools to clean your carpet and follow the instructions to care for its fibers. 


Try to be as gentle as possible when you’re cleaning your carpet to avoid damaging it.

Leaving it Unprotected

Your carpet can get extra dirty if you fail to protect the high traffic areas in your home.

Too Much or Too Little Vacuuming

Vacuuming too much can loosen your carpet, while doing it too little results in dirt buildup.

Not Deep Cleaning It

Your carpet should be deep cleaned twice a year to strip it from harmful substances and filth.

Steaming It

Steaming your carpet can leave it wet for days, allowing mold and bacteria to grow in it.
