Most of us have them. That dull gray area on our carpet where we tend to walk the most. In front of the couch, going into the kitchen, coming in from the garage. Because we walk on these areas more, the soil build up is heavier that other parts of our carpet.
If you want to prevent them, the single best way is to not wear shoes in the house.
I know, it’s almost impossible to get your family to follow along and consistently do this. But it works! We visited a long time customer yesterday to clean their carpet after they moved out. We hadn’t been there for three years since the last cleaning. Usually when we enter an empty house, the first thing we notice is all the traffic lanes. When all the furniture is gone, traffic lanes are very obvious. It took me a few minutes to figure out what seemed odd about this house. Then it hit me, no traffic lanes. They had the usual spots and dust in the corners but not one single traffic lane. Even in front of the couch. It turns out, they never wore shoes in the house.
The alternative to removing your shoes is to have us apply a carpet protectant once a year. This needs to be done before you develop traffic lanes and needs to be done regularly throughout the life of the carpet. Protectant won’t prevent traffic lanes from developing but it will allow us to clean them out at each yearly cleaning.
Give us a call if you want more information. We’re happy to come out and evaluate your individual situation and make some recommendations.
An easy way to remember to turn off your sprinklers for the winter season is to do it at the same time you move your clock back an hour when Daylight Savings Time ends on November 2nd. This is also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and your carbon monoxide detector.
