What to do if the carpet has an unpleasant smell?

Neutralize odors with baking soda. Just sprinkle it on the surface, let it work and then remove it with a vacuum cleaner.

You can then lightly scent the carpet with essential oils of lavender or cinnamon with a spray bottle (be careful not to overdo it!).

How do you deal with dust that accumulates on a carpet?

Dust damages the fibers and, if not removed, can tear the fibers and cause visible carpet wear. The best thing to do is simply remove it weekly with a vacuum cleaner.

We recommend that you carry out this operation without the brush, only with the tube of the vacuum cleaner, otherwise you will cause wear and tear on the carpet.

The best stain remedy is to act quickly. The first thing to do is to remove the residue with absorbent paper. Wipe from the edge towards the center and never use a very damp sponge, you risk extending the stain. Before using any stain remover, test it on a small, inconspicuous area. And for the most stubborn stains…

Red wine stain: remove it by rubbing the affected area with sparkling water, then apply a cleansing foam.
Tea or coffee stain: clean by rubbing the stain with a mixture of detergent and white vinegar.
Chewing gum: do not try to remove it directly. Harden the chewing gum with an ice cube and it will be easier to remove.
Pen ink stain: remove the stain by “pinching” it with a clean white cloth soaked in milk.
5 easy tips for caring for and maintaining your carpets
In addition to following the advice of our 1st part of the article, here are 5 simple tips to follow to keep the beauty of your carpet for as long as possible.

1. OPT FOR A HIGH-END CARPET

A beautiful rug is a good investment. Not only will it keep its shine for years and won’t get dirty easily, but above all it will beautify the whole room if you have selected it carefully.

But as you can imagine, choosing a rug is not easy. We have dedicated a dedicated article, “ How to choose a rug? to help you choose the right model based on the important criteria.

2. WATCH OUT FOR SHOES!

It may seem obvious, but making sure to keep your home clean will help you keep your carpets looking their best. A simple tip is to avoid shoes in your home. Get in the habit of taking them off every time you enter the house, and ask your guests to do the same.

3. REGULAR VACUUMING IS NOT ENOUGH

Besides avoiding shoes, the best way to keep your carpets looking great is to vacuum them frequently. It is recommended to do this once a week, in order to prevent dust and dirt from adhering to the fibers of the carpet.

However, regular vacuuming is not the same as cleaning, which is why it’s a good idea to do a thorough cleaning once in a while. Once per semester or at each change of season for example. After winter, take advantage of the warmer days to take the rugs out of their usual place, clean them and dust them…

In short, the change of season is ideal for moving furniture and giving your spaces a new look!

4. BE CAREFUL OF PETS

Living with animals often makes carpet maintenance a little more difficult. Even if they are clean, they inevitably expose your carpet to dust and hair. And for many of our animal friends, a rug is a great place to take a nap.

If you are concerned, make sure your pet is always groomed and brushed, so the hair doesn’t build up. It’s also likely that carpet maintenance, and sweeping or vacuuming the house more generally, will need to be more regular than if you don’t have pets.
