Dirt in a carpet is not only unsightly, it also causes structural damage to the carpet. Believe it or not, common dirt contains very coarse and gritty particles, such as minute rock fragments and grains of sand. When the carpet is walked upon, these hard granules are ground against the carpet fibers.
This abrasive rubbing not only wears away at your carpet’s stain-resistance, it also cuts and scrapes the fibers, causing them to permanently fray. Needless to say, this deteriorates the appearance and physical structure of your carpet.
What Can be Done to Prevent Premature Wear?
1) Vacuum Regularly – carpets should be vacuumed at least once a week…and even more often in heavy traffic areas. Frequent vacuuming removes much of the gritty dirt particles on the surface of the carpet, before they settle deeper and start abrading the fibers.
2) Place Mats at Entrances – mats will reduce the amount of dirt that is brought into your home. The mats collect and trap the dirt, helping to protect your carpets from soiling and premature wear.
3) Remove Your Shoes – a lot of dirt and grit tracks into our homes via the shoes we wear. Removing your shoes before walking on the carpet will go a long way toward keeping the carpet cleaner. Reducing shoe traffic also helps prevent permanent wear patterns on your carpet.
4) Schedule a Professional Cleaning – even if you vacuum regularly, it is recommended that a professional cleaning be performed on your carpet every 12 to 18 months. This will remove the deep dirt that a household vacuum cannot reach.
