If you’re a business owner, property manager, or a homeowner with a bustling household, maintaining the cleanliness and longevity of your carpets can be challenging. Don’t worry, the pros at Precision Chem-Dry are here with tips for how to keep your carpet looking fresh and new, despite the heavy foot traffic it endures daily. 

Understanding the High Traffic Areas in Your Home

The high-traffic areas of your carpet that require extra attention will depend on the patterns of use in your home and the presence of children and pets. These areas may show signs of wear such as dark spots, gray lanes, flattened or matted fibers, or a contrast in color and texture near the walls versus the middle of the area. If you notice these signs, deep carpet cleaning may be necessary to prevent permanent unevenness. High-traffic areas in a home may include hallways, stairwells, in front of couches and beds, in front of closet doors, and children and pets’ play areas.

How Deep Carpet Cleaning Refreshes High Traffic Areas

High-traffic areas of carpeting in your home do not have to look worn and damaged. A deep carpet cleaning can significantly improve the appearance by removing dirt and grime that has accumulated in the fibers. This cleaning process also prevents soil from causing excess friction that can damage delicate carpet fibers. 

The Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction process is a unique approach to carpet cleaning that tackles stubborn stains and deep-seated signs of traffic. It utilizes the power of carbonation to emulsify dirt and debris, allowing for a safer and more effective removal. This method uses less water compared to traditional steam cleaning, which means your carpet dries within 1-2 hours, leaving it healthier and drier. It also uses carbonation and a detergent-free cleaning solution instead of harsh soaps, so you don’t have to worry about residue attracting more dirt. 

For best results, we recommend deep cleaning high-traffic areas of your carpet at least 1-2 times per year. In between these deep cleanings, be sure to regularly vacuum to remove surface dirt and maintain an even texture.
