Guide to Carpet Wear Maintenance in Las Vegas
Here at MC Services we hear many horror stories about wine carpet stains, food stains, and various other issues. The main connecting factor for all of them is that nearly all of the stories we hear about damaged carpets and upholstery could have been prevented, corrected, or at least toned down if the correct steps had been taken.
In order to help our customers minimize unnecessary carpet cleaning costs, or even worse, replacement costs, we share all of the information we have available with them. And in order to streamline the process of sharing this information and to make it accessible to anyone that is looking to lower maintenance costs, we’ve written a resource below that is quick to read and quick to implement. However, without knowing the details of a specific home or the maintenance difficulties it holds, we cannot give the best solution. This resource is based on general issues. If you’re interested in a free quote for your home or need to solve a cleaning problem you may have, give us a call at (702) 410-0074.
What Causes Carpet Wear?
In order to understand how to minimize carpet wear, staining, and damage, it’s important to understand what causes it. Carpet wear is not something that happens overnight; instead, it happens slowly over time. Soil is dragged into the home on shoes, coolers, and other surfaces that have been outside. Then people walk over that debris and dig it further into carpet fibers.
Throw in a minor spill here or there, a pet accident here or there, and the absence of at least one professional cleaning a year, and you end up with undesired restoration or replacement costs. Here at MC Services, we want to help you identify all of the sources of carpet damage so that you can eliminate them or protect against them.
The Importance of Upholstery Protection
If you don’t use stain guard products on upholstery you will eventually learn to regret it. Most upholstery is not designed to be stain-proof. And even the furniture that is designed to be will eventually lose its protection through wear and wear. That’s when it comes down to you to get a protect such as Scotchgaurd and apply it to your upholstery so that it will bind to the fibers and keep liquids from absorbing into it in the event of an accident.
Here at MC Services we know that accidents happen. We cannot realistically recommend: “don’t spill liquids” as a solution to carpet maintenance and prevention. However, we can definitely recommend protecting your upholstery.
We know that it’s time consuming and it can be stressful to find a product that is compatible with every type of your upholstery fabric. That is why we keep a detailed database and consult it every time we help homeowners protect their furniture. And that is also why we offer stain protection benefits with our cleaning packages. After all, what’s the point of having your home professionally cleaned if it’s vulnerable to being stained the next time you spill something?
Invest in Furniture Glides
If you have couches, heaver dressers, or other objects in your home that can bear down on your carpet it’s a great idea to invest in furniture glides. They cost anywhere from $5 to 20 for a pack of 4 sets, which can seem expensive at first but is nothing compared to the money it will save you in the long run. If you think that you can sell or rent or leave a lease with carpet that has been imprinted with heavy furniture over years of living in it, then think again. Furniture glides will make it easy to move your furniture without picking it all the way up, and it will also keep legs from digging into your carpet.
