Expert highlights importance of carpet cleaning
Category: Carpet Rug Cleaning
According to household and lifestyle writer Claire Bradley, carpet cleaning is an essential task and necessary to keep fibres in good condition.
Writing in the Globe and Mail, she pointed out that with proper care and attention, carpets can last a long time - they just have to be cleaned regularly.
Ms Bradley recommended that householders should use vacuum cleaners to clean up loose particles or consider renting a carpet cleaning machine at a local supermarket or store for a modest fee.
"Make sure you vacuum thoroughly before cleaning, and pick a dry day so your carpet dries quickly," Ms Bradley advised.
"With regular cleaning your carpet can last a long time, saving you big bucks on new flooring."
Homeowners were also urged to clean their windows on a regular basis, as the glass surfaces tend to "get a beating" in most climates. Ms Bradley suggested washing windows with a simple hose and with water, using an appropriate cleaning solution purchased from a good home improvement or DIY store.
Experts have warned that care should be exercised when using cleaning sprays, as the solutions have been linked to a likelihood of developing asthma.
