The Effects of the Summer on Your Carpet

No matter what kind of carpet you have, it is always important to keep it in good conditions. As we mentioned in another post, a dirty carpet not only affects how your home looks but it can also lead to air pollution that causes allergies. The summer can be a more strenuous season for your carpet. Several factors during this time can lead to your carpet to wear out faster which is why it requires more care. Since it is important to know what precautions you should take and how to deal with the effects we want to share some tips to help your deal with the summer carpet dangers.

The Summer Means More Traffic and Strain on Your Carpet

Summer vacations mean the kids will spend more time at home and most likely run around from room to room and from the outside to the inside. This elevates the amount of wear on your carpet and increases spill incidents and accidents. Not everyone has kids but in the summer, people tend to drop by for a visit more often. Summer get-togethers, pool parties, and other events make carpet issues more common. That is why it is always a good idea to have our phone number in hand. Contact Cleveland Cleanpro now, and let us save your carpet this summer.

Bringing Outdoor Dirt Inside Causes the Carpet to Wear Out Fast

The summer means more outdoor time and more dirt, sand and grass dragged back inside. Shoes with grass stuck to them can stain the carpet. Any pebbles and other items caught on the shoes will scratch and damage your carpet as well. This can create unwanted stains and tough filth that is pushed inside and is hard to get rid of. Reinforce the ¨no shoes inside¨ rule and immediately deal with any dirt brought inside. One of the worst things we can do is to leave the mess for later. Many times we don´t do it on purpose, we may be busy completing other tasks and we may not immediately noticethe damage until it has started setting in.

How to Prevent Summer Sunlight From Quickly Fading the Carpet Color

The sunlight can also become a problem for your carpet if not properly protected from it. Windows, open entrances, and other areas that admit a lot of sunlight cause the UV rays to corrode your carpet and fade out the color. The color of the carpet starts to fade and it is a gradual process that continues over time. Due to this, it can go unnoticed for a while. Until you move a piece of furniture or rug that uncovers an area untouched by the sunlight and see how substantial the effects are. You should always make sure that you have blinds or shades that can cover the windows and sunlight areas so that the carpet isn´t directly absorbing the UV light all the time. Some upholstery is also prone to the damage of sunlight and should be covered whenever possible so that it doesn't suffer the effects. The spots caused by the rug, furniture or other objects that prevent sunlight from deteriorating an area of the carpet, will be very noticeable if they are never rearranged. You can prevent this problem by constantly moving the furniture and other objects around those areas so that they do not become marked by the sunlight fading in the carpet. It is also very important that you understand that although those spots that are left untouched by the sunlight and may resemble stains they are not. Therefore, no amount of carpet cleaning will remove them. Your best bet is to have the carpet patched in those areas.
