Residential carpet is constantly under attack from all angles. It might seem impossible to keep it clean, especially if you have kids or pets in your home. Read this article to learn about some of the things that you do not think about that might be damaging or soiling your carpet.

One thing that can cause a great deal of soiling in your carpets is smoke. This can come from a variety of sources. The most obvious source is cigarette smoke but you can also have problems with smoke from fireplaces, poorly adjusted gas heating systems or candles. To prevent problems try not smoking in your home, check your fireplace for proper operation, have your homes HVAC system checked regularly and limit candle burning in your home.

Another cause of soiling in a home is tracked in tar and rubber. This is common with homes that have attached garages and homes in neighborhoods with blacktopped roads. If you are having a problem with this kind of soiling you should place entry mats on the inside and outside of all doors. If possible you should have people remove their shoes when they enter your home.

The last source of carpet damage that I will mention is household chemicals. You would be surprised to learn what household chemicals commonly used in your home can damage carpet. Simply spilling a few drops of them on your carpet can quickly strip the color from them. These cleaners include bathroom cleaners, kitchen cleaners and laundry products. Be careful when using any chemical to clean your home to not spill them on the carpet. You never know what chemical will cause a problem.

It can be hard at times to keep our carpets in good shape but the effort is well worth it. A properly cared for carpet will give you years of service.
