How to Take Care of Your Carpet Flooring

Carpet flooring requires more than just the occasional vacuuming. According to HuffPost, whether it's your home or office, well-maintained flooring can last up to 15 years. There are several ways to take care of your carpet flooring to preserve its look and feel. Here are a few tips you should know.

As far as carpet cleaning options go, you can choose between steam cleaning, vacuuming, or washing with soap and water. The cleaning process depends on the type of carpet floor you own and the density of the fabric. Be careful not to leave the flooring damp as it may damage the fabric. Here are some cleaning solutions to consider.

Wash With Soap and Water

Figuring out how to deep clean a carpet may feel like a daunting task, especially if you want to do it without a machine. Luckily, it is possible to deep clean your carpet by hand. Start by mixing up a tiny bit of soap with the water in the spray bottle. Sprinkle baking soda over the area you want to deep clean. Then spray the mixture of soapy water lightly over the same area. Let it sit for a few minutes and brush the carpet in one direction to pick up the debris and hair that is deep in the carpet.

Steam Cleaning

Steam cleaning is the most effective solution for carpet flooring. It's environmentally friendly and removes 99% of germs and bacteria. Steam cleaning uses water to disinfect surfaces and provides a nice, clean finish. Steam cleaning encourages the use of natural compounds to reduce environmental toxins. It's a solution that guarantees chemical-free cleaning that is still powerful and effective.

If you want to remove dirt and get a fresh-looking carpet, steaming is your best bet. There are several options available, such as handheld steam cleaners and vapor cleaners.


Vacuuming is the easiest and most common solution for carpet flooring. However, vacuuming needs to happen regularly and thoroughly. Note that dirt builds up quickly in high-traffic areas such as hallways. The recommendation is that you vacuum the carpet flooring once every week. However, it would be better to increase this number to once every three days when possible.

A well-maintained carpet flooring can last you a very long time. For more information on our carpet flooring services, give Corner Stone Flooring LLC a call today.
