Installing carpets in your home adds comfort and warmth to your home. When taken care of properly, carpets can last for many years. The carpet care experts at North Star Chem-Dry are here to help with some tips for proper carpet care, especially in high-traffic areas that tend to wear out faster. With our help, you can protect your investment by refreshing high-traffic areas, giving your carpets a more even appearance, and extending their lifespan.

Understanding the High Traffic Areas in Your Home

High-traffic areas are different in every home and depend on the patterns of use in your home. You can determine high-traffic areas by paying attention to areas that 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. High-traffic areas in a home may include hallways, stairwells, in front of couches and beds, in front of closet doors, and children’s and pets’ play areas. If you notice these signs in your carpeting, contact your local carpet cleaner to prevent further damage. 

Can Deep Carpet Cleaning Refresh 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 Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process offered by North Star Chem-Dry can restore the look and feel of overused carpets. This process uses less water than steam cleaning, allowing your carpets to dry within a few hours rather than days. 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.
