Quick Carpet-Care Tips

Your carpets take a beating every single day. From kids to pets to airborne particles—and that’s the best case scenario! Your carpets stand up to a lot and they deliver great value by giving you comfort and beauty for years.

To help keep your carpets in the very best condition here are some tips for you:

Make sure you vacuum your carpet regularly. After all, your carpet is the place where all dirt, debris, hair, and crumbs will land… and if not vacuumed, they can work their way into the fibers.

If you have a large carpet, make the job easier by vacuuming the floor in sections. Breaking down the job makes it easier. This will let you notice what areas have been gone over previously to save you some time. For example, a square room can be divided into four equal quadrants.

If your carpets get wet, dry them right away with towels, fans, and/or a dehumidifier to help avoid stains (for staining situations) or even mold.

Rubbing stains make them bleed deeper into the carpet. Blot the stain instead. Follow this with water, vinegar, salt, or some other natural cleaning substance that will soak up the stain. Contact Valor Home Services for specific carpet prices on cleaning or for carpet cleaning sales and coupons. Always look to a professional to refresh your carpets and get them looking like new.

Consider getting a professional carpet cleaning company to clean your carpets regularly if you live in O’Fallon IL or Shiloh IL, Valor Home Services should be the first call. (Check with the company to see how often they recommend, since some carpets might require cleaning more frequently or less frequently than others—depending on the type of carpet and where it is located in your home.)

When looking for a carpet cleaning company, don’t use price as the only factor in your decision. Some companies will quote a price for each room, others might give you a flat fee or base it on the square footage. Most box stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s do not offer professionally carpet cleaning so be sure to find a local floor store near you.

When the carpet cleaner shows up, look at their truck and their crew. Are they clean and professional? Are they wearing a uniform? Does their truck have a company logo on it? Are they wearing a nametag? Do they treat you kindly and professionally? Find out what certifications, licenses, and insurance they have.

When they show up to clean your carpet or carpet tiles, make sure the carpet cleaning service has a place to park. It is actually something you might not realize is important. The companies use materials that are large and heavy, so they need to be close to your home


If your carpet is no longer as clean as it used to be, you can restore its looks by hiring a company to come clean it. You’d be surprised at how bit of a difference it can make. When your carpet is professionally cleaned, you’ll never do it by yourself again! Your carpets take care of you… now it’s time to pay them back with a little care for them too!
