When you have a carpeted home, the most logical thing to do is to plan a monthly or weekly schedule for carpet cleaning. I mean, what is the alternative? Take a day off from work and spend your precious time in front of the television!
But you can make your own home cleaning schedule by tracking your schedule through regular tasks that you regularly perform at home. For example, if you have a clean kitchen, you probably schedule things like vacuuming and washing dishes for a few minutes each day. That will get your kitchen clean, right?
You need to be consistent, but it is good to write out tasks and follow through on them. It may be a good idea to give yourself some personal time as well to be more productive. Consider doing some leisurely exercise on a long weekend when you are not so busy.
If you have a carpeted home, the home cleaning schedule should include cleaning the floor with a steam cleaner. Sometimes we like the way it looks, and we never bother to clean the grout. A steamer is the only solution to getting it sparkling again.
The most important part of any cleaning schedule is to pick the appropriate products for the various jobs that need to be done. For example, if you have a hardwood floor, I recommend you get a product specifically for that task. You can also find products designed for other household surfaces such as tiled floors, stone, marble, porcelain, and tile.
Steam cleaners are a lot easier to use on hard surfaces than on carpet. Many steam cleaners come with an attached sprayer. Spray some shampoo or liquid detergent in the sprayer and you are ready to steam clean.
Carpet cleaning should be a task that you handle every month. If you have hardwood floors in your home, you should steam clean them monthly. While the rugs may look great on the outside, they can attract dirt and allergens. If your rugs are not always looking their best, this could cause people to avoid coming into your home.
Make sure you vacuum on a regular basis if you have hardwood or other types of rugs in your home. This will help get rid of any dust that can accumulate. It will also protect your rugs from damage.
Another common problem with rugs is foot traffic on them. When this happens, dirt and cobwebs can accumulate. Vacuum on a daily basis, or at least several times a week.
Any rug that has a zipper pull should be vacuumed every couple of months. This will keep the stain from setting in. You will want to choose a rug that does not have a zippered hole, so you will need to look for a different cleaning product.
Avoid getting pet hair or dust on the rug, as this will make the rug much more uncomfortable. You will also want to avoid using a vacuum that has suction cups, as these can irritate your eyes. On the other hand, do not use the suction cup that is intended for pillows, as these can scratch up the carpet.
By following your carpet cleaning schedule, you will be able to maintain the cleanliness of your rug. Even if you have carpeting in your kitchen, you should still follow your schedule for the floor. Follow up with steam cleaning once a month and vacuuming every week.
