1. Ensure you have enough time to deep clean your home before the holiday
Are you spending your holiday away from home this year? Before you leave, consider giving yourself plenty of time to deep clean your home, especially your carpet. Most people have a “spring cleaning” ritual that includes the carpets, so why not get it all done now?
You’ll spend less time worrying about coming back to an untidy house and more time enjoying the holidays!
2. Make sure the carpets are vacuumed and cleaned regularly
There are many reasons to vacuum and clean carpets regularly, especially if you have kids and pets in your house. It helps with allergies, it keeps your carpet looking new, and it’s just good for the environment in general.
Kids and pets are a carpet’s worst nightmare. One way to ensure carpets stay clean is by vacuuming them regularly, but that doesn’t mean it should be your only line of defence against every day’s dirt and grime.
Carpets can benefit from professional cleaning. It’ll help remove tough stains like urine, vomit, blood and more! In addition to removing these tough stains for good, regular deep cleaning periodically will keep your carpets looking fresh and new year after year.
3. Use baking soda before vacuuming the carpet to soften stubborn stains
Did you know that one of the best ways to freshen up your carpet before Christmas is with baking soda? Baking soda is great for removing stubborn stains like perspiration, urine and blood. The great thing about this natural cleaner is it’s safe for children and pets!
You can either sprinkle some over the stain or mix a cupful with water in a spray bottle. Then just wait for 15 minutes or so before vacuuming as usual. Try it and make your carpet fresh and clean for this holiday season!
4. Quickly clean up spills
We all have that one friend who spills their coffee or wine on the carpet. The quicker you clean it up, the less likely it will stain your carpet. But let’s be honest, no matter how fast you act on a spill, there is still a chance for stains to occur. So how do you avoid this? Simply follow these 3 simple steps.
1) Contain the spills by using a paper towel as soon as possible.
2) Put away any breakable items before they are knocked over by an excited pet or child looking for attention.
3) Throw down some baking soda and mix with water to create a paste-like substance to the spill. It acts as an abrasive cleaner that can cut through tough stains without damaging your carpet fibres.
Aside from these steps, hiring a professional carpet cleaner is the best Christmas cleaning tip there is. They have the proper tools and techniques to quickly clean a carpet without damaging it.

5. Do not let your pets urinate on the carpet
No one likes to have their carpets ruined by animals. Whether it’s your four-legged friend or a visitor, the results are usually the same; a stinky carpet that is difficult to clean.
To avoid this, make sure you give them access to grass for urination and/or train them not to do so indoors. If they don’t respond, invest in an enzyme cleaner that will help break down any urine on your carpeting!
6. Make sure to let the carpet completely dry before using it again
It’s important to avoid tracking dirt and debris back onto your carpet, so make sure it has completely dried before you vacuum or use it again. Moisture left behind can be a breeding ground for bacteria and mould, which could lead to health issues for you and your family. While this may feel like a long time, we assure you that the wait will be worth it!
Carpets take a lot of abuse. It’s used everyday, sometimes for hours at a time, and is often trodden on by shoes that are caked with mud or other substances. So, if you’ve just had your carpets cleaned, make sure to let them completely dry before using them again.
