What Is the Best Carpet to Buy, How Do Pick the Right Vacuum?

Choosing the best carpet depends on various factors such as your budget, lifestyle, preferences, and the area where the carpet will be installed. Here are some common types of carpets and their features:

  1. Nylon: Nylon carpets are durable, resilient, and easy to clean, making them suitable for high-traffic areas like hallways and living rooms.
  2. Polyester: Polyester carpets are known for their softness and vibrant color options. They are stain-resistant and more affordable than nylon carpets, making them a good choice for bedrooms and low-traffic areas.
  3. Wool: Wool carpets are luxurious, durable, and naturally stain-resistant. They are more expensive than synthetic options but offer excellent longevity and a luxurious feel, making them ideal for formal living rooms and bedrooms.
  4. Polypropylene (Olefin): Polypropylene carpets are budget-friendly, stain-resistant, and resistant to mold and mildew. They are often used in outdoor areas, basements, and playrooms.

When it comes to using the right vacuum for your carpet, consider the following tips:

  1. Choose a vacuum with adjustable height settings: Carpets come in various pile heights, so it’s essential to adjust your vacuum’s height settings accordingly. For low-pile carpets, use the lowest setting, while for high-pile carpets, use a higher setting to prevent the vacuum from getting stuck or causing damage.
  2. Use a vacuum with a rotating brush or beater bar: A rotating brush or beater bar helps loosen dirt and debris trapped in the carpet fibers, making it easier to vacuum effectively.
  3. Check the vacuum’s suction power: Opt for a vacuum with strong suction power to effectively remove dirt, pet hair, and debris from the carpet fibers.
  4. Consider a vacuum with HEPA filtration: If you or your family members suffer from allergies or asthma, choose a vacuum with HEPA filtration to capture allergens and improve indoor air quality.
  5. Regular maintenance: Empty the vacuum bag or canister regularly to maintain optimal suction power and performance. Additionally, clean or replace the vacuum filter as needed to prevent clogs and maintain airflow.

By selecting the right type of carpet and using the appropriate vacuum, you can keep your carpets clean, well-maintained, and looking new for years to come.

Schedule professional carpet cleaning at least once or twice a year to remove deep-seated dirt and rejuvenate the carpet fibers.

All Kleen uses truck-mounted cleaning systems that sanitize your carpets safely and effectively with OSHA-certified environmentally friendly products.

Our systems create steam by heating water to 220 degrees, and then they simultaneously inject and extract water from your carpet. This provides superior cleaning and also limits the amount of moisture left behind, so your floors are dry in a matter of hours.
