Carpets are objects which are used to beautify the indoor spaces of commercial and residential premises. They magnify the appearance and quality of the indoor spaces to a great extent and improve the impression of anyone visiting those premises. Carpets also provide a lot of floorcare as they endure the foot traffic and keep the flooring clean and free from dirt and dust.
But it is often seen that carpets encounter immense dirt and dust and become a repository of those. Harmful pathogenic substances and microbes also make carpets their favourable habitats. Moisture in carpets leaves them at a higher risk of becoming the conducive habitat to molds, fungal spores and mildew. All of these destroy the carpet quality gradually and also perplex the humans living in close proximity of those carpets by degrading the indoor air quality and causing irritations and discomfort in their respiratory organs. Thus cleaning carpets at regular intervals and employing a maintenance and carpet care routine is of the utmost essence.
Spot vacuuming :
Using a particular vacuum cleaner for vacuum cleaning of carpet surfaces is a common operation which is performed in most of the premises that employ carpets for covering their floor spaces. Vacuuming should necessarily be done twice a week but in areas of high foot traffic and those containing pets and domestic animals should undergo vacuuming operations more frequently and daily, if possible. This keeps the soil due to the foot traffic and the dirt, hair, dander, and similar other microscopic allergens off the carpet which originated due to the presence of the pets.
Spot vacuuming refers to a special type of vacuuming operation where the spots and stains are removed with tremendous expertise. The vacuum cleaner is operated over the part of the carpet surface that has encountered the spots and the stains due to any reason. The vacuuming operation necessarily removes the dried off portion of that region of the carpet which has been stained or has developed a spot due to spillage or due to the particles of soil which have been carried on to the carpet surface due to heavy foot traffic. Spot vacuuming operations can also be employed to dry out any wet spot that may persist on the carpet, which might not have dried uniformly as the other portions of that carpet. Since moisture is a huge enemy of the carpet fibre and deteriorates the carpet quality, therefore every bit of excess moisture should be removed from the carpet.
How is spot vacuuming useful for the maintenance of carpet quality :
Spot vacuuming operations can be employed domestically because they do not need much expertise to perform. Performing spot vacuuming operations once before cleaning the carpet removes dry soil and other heavy particles which might be present on the carpet and the same operations post-carpet cleaning removes the excess moisture which could have formed on the carpet due to the cleaning operations and improper drying. Therefore spot vacuuming is deemed extremely essential and it improves the durability of the carpet fibres. Moreover, spot vacuuming operations done regularly or at intervals takes care of the carpet and can do away with any carpet maintenance regime that is employed professionally. Professional carpet care experts charge a high amount for carpet maintenance which can be totally negated by employing proper spot vacuuming operations.
