There is nothing worse than walking through your living room and smelling an awful odor coming from your carpet. Although there are dozens of methods that teach you how to get the smell out of your carpet, we guarantee that there’s nothing better than routine maintenance. Keeping your carpet clean and neat at all times is the ultimate solution to a fresh smelling carpet. Here’s what you should do.

1. No shoes on the carpet rule.

  • The key to a clean carpet is keeping the dirt out of it. The best way to do this is to implement a no shoes on the carpet rule in your home. Install a shoe chest or shoe shelf beside each door and have your family members use it for storing their shoes. Wearing slippers is also a great idea as the oils from your feet won’t become embedded in the carpet.

2. Use throw rugs.

  • Consider installing a throw rug at every entrance to your home. They are inexpensive, easy to clean and work great at keeping dust and debris from shoes, out of your home (carpets). You won’t believe how much dust an entrance rug can trap. This can even save you money which you usually have to spend on professional carpet cleaning services.

3. Vacuum periodically.

  • Regular vacuuming is, in fact, the best way to maintain a clean and fresh carpet. The rule says you should vacuum at least twice a week, however, if you have pets in the house, you may have to vacuum daily. It is highly recommended to use a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter. They pick up even the smallest particles.

4. Use powder carpet freshener.

  • Before you vacuum the carpets in your home, sprinkle powder carpet freshener or baking soda on them. This will keep the bad odors away. Do it every two weeks.

5. Hire a good carpet cleaner!

  • No matter how many times you vacuum your carpet, at one point or another, you’ll still have to hire a deep cleaning service.
