Hard flooring in Bedroom

There is a reason why so many bedrooms are carpeted in today’s houses, this is mainly because of the air circulation that is improved by having carpets instead of hard floor. Hard floor is problematic from one perspective, it does not allow for dust and other particles to sink in to it and not to be breathed in by sleeping individual.

This is main issue that is presented with hard flooring, is that all the dust and other pollutants will be freely flowing in the air and by this they can actually cause some allergic reactions and other problems in young or elderly people. It is highly recommended to implement some method of air circulation in the bedroom, one could also add that having pets in the house without carpets will increase possibility of allergic reactions.

Friend of mine has a baby with allergic reactions to cat that she loves and does not see any chance of getting rid of this cat, however ever sense she have placed rug in the room where they sleep her’s child allergic reaction have diminished and this is one of proof that having some sort of fabric on the floor can improve air filtration. On the other hand everybody’s situation is individual and should be treated as such and without any question allergic reaction to pets should be treated seriously and according to doctors recommendations.

Make sure that you brought your pet to veterinary that can rule out any medical conditions that can cause cat to wee in excess. One you have done that, if possible place litter box where can has been urinating, this will greatly help to prevent can from urinating on carpet or other floor surface.

Tips on Carpet Care to Enhance Its Looks!

Carpets are the most treated on item in the home and the most dreaded item when it comes to cleaning it. But whatever said and done, caring for the carpet is essential as it is the one item that adds to the décor as well as increases the comfort level in the room. There are many carpet cleaning service providers that do a good job of cleaning the carpet but here are some tips that will help you in your carpet care before handing it over to the cleaners. Firstly when you buy the carpet, buy it from a store that provides maintenance of the same whenever required. Even if they charge you for the maintenance it is best to use their services as they are professionally trained for carpet care and keep it clean and tidy.

Some of the tips in carpet care include:

  • Stains and Spills Removal: Removing stains and spills of liquids can be quite challenging and when you want to care for your carpet it becomes difficult to do so. The fibers turn stiff and rough with the dried up liquids and as people walk on the carpets the fibers start to come off leaving the base of the carpet bare. So one of the first carpet care tips is to not allow the spills to become dry. The stains can become quite stubborn when dry and hence before it does so, the carpet should be cleaned. A dried up liquid can be very difficult to clean too.
  • Benefits of Steam Cleaning: Carpet care also includes steam cleaning process which must be done at least three to four times a year. Get a carpet cleaning agency to do the steam cleaning on the carpet as all the dirt and dust living under and in between the fibers is likely to come off.
  • Installing Thick Doormats at the Entrance: Doormats are usually found in most homes so people can leave the dust on their feet behind by rubbing it off on the doormats.  But sometimes     the dust gets carried into the homes and the carpets absorb them. They get stuck in between the fibers making the carpet look shabby and old.
  • Detergents and Cleaning Agents: Using mild detergents is good but the first attempt should be to use only water. If the mild stains can be removed with plain water then it is the safest way to do it. If the stains do not come off with water alone it is fine to use a mild detergent. But what must be definitely avoided is using hot water on the dirt or stain as it is likely to solidify and then it will be difficult to remove it at home.
  • Vacuum Cleaning: The use of vacuum cleaning is really easy to get the dirt and dust stuck beneath the fibers right on top. But it is the process of vacuuming that must be mastered. Each area where there is more dust or which looks shabby must be ironed out with the vacuum over and over again.

Carpet care can be quite a challenge if it is not too frequent and rigid. Small and minor cleaning jobs can be done quite easily but it is the stubborn stains and the wild dust that gets too tiresome. Nevertheless the outcome of all the work is definitely satisfying so keep caring for your carpet by following the tips given.
