The month of ghouls, goblins, and carved pumpkins has passed and now the busy holiday season is here! The time of year for gathering with friends and family, hosting fabulous parties and just sitting by a cozy fire with a cup of hot cocoa. But if your carpet has seen better days, and you’re tempted to rip it all up and start over, hang tight. We’ve got some tips to get your carpet ready for the holiday season!
Vacuum your carpet daily: Chances are your carpet will have more foot traffic due to guests coming and going. Vacuuming is the easiest method to get rid of the dirt and grime that is lingering in your carpet. Regular vacuuming can also reduce dust and allergens by trapping them, which prevents their re-circulation back into the air. Be sure to use a vacuum that’s designed to be both powerful and sleek. The Lux Guardian Platinum is our most advanced canister vacuum. Boasting a high-powered motor that is also exceptionally quiet, as well as 2 sealed HEPA filters, the Platinum captures the smallest contaminants, releasing only clean air back into your indoor environment.
Deep Clean Your Carpet: Cleaning goes deep into the carpet fibers and gets rid of trapped soil and helps remove stubborn stains. Not wanting to worry about the hassle of scheduling a professional to come out and clean your carpets? You can also opt in to invest in your own carpet shampooer. Convenient, streamlined and easy to use, the Lux Floor Pro features a balanced triple-brush system to effectively shampoo, wax or polish your floor surfaces. And our unique Circular Dry Foam Method of cleaning removes more soil with less water. When used with Turbo Shampoo, the Lux Floor Pro offers a quick-dry solution that helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew, while leaving your carpets fresh and residue-free. The Lux Floor Pro allows you to avoid damage and add years to the life and vitality of your flooring.
Banish Shoes Indoors: Remove your shoes before entering the house — and insist the kiddos and guests do, too. Keep slippers or socks on so the natural oils in your bare feet don’t rub off on the carpet, which can lead to stains.
Clean Up Spills Right Away: Did a guest spill their red wine or drop Grandma’s homemade pie on your floor? Immediately remove the spots, in order to prevent a permanent stain. Do not scrub or rub the spot, which can wear down carpet fibers, and also spread the stain. Spray a club soda, which is gentle on carpet, and blot gently.
