How to Keep Heavily-Trafficked Areas in Your Home Looking Clean  

high-traffic-areas

High-trafficked areas in your home naturally get dirtier and wear down faster. To keep them looking clean, here are a few tips from the experts at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County.

  1. Deep Clean Your Carpets
  2. For carpeted areas in your home that are used constantly, vacuuming is not enough to keep dirt and stains at bay. Carpet protector spray is great for keeping your carpet stain-resistant in high-traffic areas and should be applied regularly. You should also invest in having your carpets professional cleaned one or two times per year.  

  3. Use Area Rugs
  4. Placing an area rug in a high-traffic area is a great way to keep your floors clean. Rugs are much easier to clean than the floors themselves and are cost less to be replaced if necessary.

  5. Vacuum Frequently
  6. As a general rule, heavily-trafficked areas in your home should be vacuumed two to three times a week in order to keep dirt from building up and staining or scratching your flooring.

  7. Use Stain Removers
  8. When stains do happen, as they often will in high-traffic areas, act quickly and apply a stain remover. First absorb the staining substance by blotting it with a cloth, then scrub your floor with a quality stain remover.

  9. Hire Professional Help
  10. One of the best ways to keep the high-traffic areas in your home looking spotless is to invest in professional carpet and floor cleaning. Professional cleaners will use tools, chemicals, and processes designed to take out even the most stubborn stains and leave your carpets and floors looking like new.
