Brooklyn Carpet Cleaning recommends using a good quality vacuum cleaner. Your carpeting is a major investment, and the less expensive vacuums tend to pick up only surface dirt. This "light cleaning" is not sufficient to prolong the life and beauty of your carpeting over the long term.
Always test your carpet for colorfastness in an inconspicuous area (such as inside a closet) before using spot removers or carpet cleansers. Ask us for recommendations about placing area rugs on top of your carpet.
Don't stop with vacuuming the top! You should vacuum the underside of area rugs periodically to remove any loose dirt that may have filtered through the rug fibers on top.
Regular vacuuming is an effective way to remove most of the soil, sand, and dust that gets tracked onto your carpets. But professional cleaning every 12-24 months is also needed to remove oily, sticky substances, including cooking vapors and other residues, which also accumulate on your carpet. These oily substances actually attract dirt and break down your carpet fibers, causing them to look dull and worn. Brooklyn Carpet Cleaning professional staff can advise you on specific treatments and the best care for your carpets, rugs, and other furnishings in your home.
