After a long day, all you are looking for is spending quality time at your home. You take your shoes off and the underfoot feeling of your carpet is a bliss. However, this scene can be ruined when you see a spot on your carpet that lost its color, giving it a careless look. 

There is nothing more unappealing that a faded carpet. Unfortunately, it’s very hard to notice it until it’s too late. Although there are many external factors that can fade your carpet’s fibers, there is something you can do to prevent it. For this reason, at Cleanpro in Portland, we would like to share some useful tips with you. 

Color

Some colors are prone to fade easier than others; if your carpet is going to be exposed to UV rays during summer, try to avoid blue and red tones and stick to light colors. 

Avoid Sunlight

Direct sunlight is the main responsible for the dyeing of your carpet this summer. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to protect your carpet: close your curtains or tint your windows. 

Abrasion 

In some cases, high traffic on your carpet can lead to fading. The particles in our shoes like dust or soil can rub the fibers and make it lose its color. Try to remove your shoes before entering the house.  

Pesticides

Even though it takes a lot of time, pesticides can also lead to color loss. Avoid using pesticides inside your home, or ask your pest control expert if their method will affect your carpet. 

These simple ideas will help preserve the color of your carpet! Also, you can use these tricks to avoid dirty carpets. Remember that professional cleaning is recommended at least twice a year to keep your carpet in perfect conditions. When was the last time you called the pros? 

Don’t settle for those companies that use steam cleaning - it leaves your carpet wet for days, creating the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow. Choose CLEANPRO instead; our unique cleaning system uses very little water, yet it obtains unbeatable results. This is only one of the many advantages of our system - consider us next time you are looking for carpet cleaning in Portland
