The white carpet is probably the most beautiful of all types of carpets. When buying a white carpet though, you should consider how you are going to look after it. Due to improper carpet cleaning methods, often, a white carpet changes colour to yellow. In addition, if you neglect its maintenance for several weeks, it can get quite dirty.
The thing is that the white carpet is known to be more affected by pollution than carpets of other colours. Even after carpet cleaning, the carpet may get dirty due to poor quality detergents, a dirty brush, etc.
It is also worth noting that premium white carpets are made from natural wool, and are quite difficult to wash. With synthetic carpets, everything is much simpler in terms of carpet washing and carpet cleaning.
To keep the white carpet always white, you must follow these carpet cleaning techniques:
Vacuuming a carpet is not difficult, as it only sucks in all the dust and dirt. However, you need to be careful with it, since sometimes there are cases when cleaning the carpet with a vacuum cleaner, the dirt only “spreads” over the surface of the carpet, which makes it even dirtier. You need to vacuum the white carpet at least once a week.
In stores, you can find special spray cans designed for carpet cleaning. The composition of the foam is such that when it gets on the carpet, it raises all the dust and dirt from the bottom of the carpet, after which they can be removed using a regular sponge or brush.
Thanks to the use of a bristle brush, it is easy to get rid of pet hair. Therefore, it is not necessary to carry out general cleaning of the carpet if the hair is from a pet, because after each cleaning the carpet wears out more and more.
If you still decide to purchase a long-piled carpet of a white colour, get ready for painstaking care of it. It looks gorgeous but requires increased attention to itself. A few care tips to help keep snow-white carpets in proper shape:
After wet cleaning, the carpet should be dried in the fresh air so that mould does not start in a long pile. You can open all the doors and windows at home to bring the fresh air inside your house.
It can be concluded that caring for a white carpet is not an easy task, but if you are diligent with its upkeep, it will please the eye for a long time.
