It can be a blast hosting parties at home, but cleaning up afterwards is not so fun. While wiping down the kitchen tiles or sweeping up outside may be straightforward tasks, removing spills and stains from carpets is a time-consuming task. 

Don’t let a fantastic party be the end of your valued carpeted flooring. Luckily it only takes a little forward-thinking and a few simple tricks from the professionals at Perth Carpet Cleaning to save your fabric flooring from party-induced damage!

The following guide contains essential tips for maintaining the quality of your carpets during events with heavy foot traffic – from pre-party preparations to when you need expert carpet cleaning services.

The benefits of quality carpet care

Any homeowner knows the importance of quality flooring. As well as adding a welcoming ambience and chic style to any house, carpets improve insulation and reduce sound pollution. Don’t risk ruining your valuable carpet investment with one messy party, when all it takes is a few simple maintenance tips to keep it clean and protected. 

If you are currently a renter, it may be even more important to keep your carpets in top condition. Depending on who the property owner or estate agent is, severe carpet damage or staining may result in you being liable to cough up for a full carpet replacement. 

Avoid an expensive mistake by discovering exactly how to care for your carpets before, during, and after a party, and where to find expert carpet cleaning in Perth for those hard-to-remove stains. 

How to prepare your carpets for a party

The morning of a party is likely a busy time, from cleaning up to preparing food. However this can be a crucial time for effective carpet maintenance in Perth, so don’t neglect your carpeting before those guests start to trickle in. 

There are two main ways to prevent carpet damage before a get-together:

  • Ask guests to remove their shoes before entering 
  • Lay down mats and runners on carpets in high-traffic areas like the entry hallway

Should you decide to place mats at the entryway, keep things simple by hanging a polite sign asking guests to wipe their shoes before coming inside. Cover all your bases with mats inside and outside the front and back doors, and consider placing clear carpet runners down to top dirt and grime being unknowingly rubbed into the carpet. 

Tips for keeping your carpets safe 

A little forward-thinking can go a long way when it comes to reliable carpet maintenance in Perth during a party. While there’s no need to enforce a strict list of rules for guests to follow, a couple of straightforward tips and guidelines can make the world of difference when cleaning up afterwards.

  • Keep the party to one area – containing parties in smaller spaces leaves less to clean up. This is where Perth residents have an advantage, as the fantastic WA weather makes backyard parties a popular choice. This can limit the amount of foot traffic your indoor carpets get while keeping food and drink safely outside.
  • Put bins in every room – encouraging guests to clean up as they go helps prevent unwanted spills or food messes, removing the danger of potential stains before they occur.
  • Don’t serve dark red drinks or food – red wine, tomato sauce, beetroot… All delicious, but highly partial to stains! Simply removing the worst staining culprits from a party can save you time-consuming stain removals the next day. 

Preventing damage and deep stains

If you have light-coloured carpets at home you’re likely already aware of just how easy it is to get them dirty. Using an additional safeguard against staining is a highly effective way of preventing deep stains or irreversible damage from taking hold, simply by applying a proven stain guard to your carpeted floors.

Visit your local hardware store to find a renowned brand, making sure you use it correctly in plenty of time for it to dry before the event. Superior carpet protection can be found through expert providers of carpet cleaning in Perth, where professional-grade products and equipment are utilised for ultimate stain protection. 

Effective clean-up tricks for party spills

It can be hard to muster the energy to clean right after a party, but it’s important to check carpets for stains as soon as everyone leaves. Tackling a stain straight away results in a much higher chance of completely removing it.

Gently dab any stains without rubbing them in further, and use various methods to remove different stain types. For example, red wine can be cleaned using ammonia and water (unless it’s a wool carpet which requires detergent and water), and dirt or mud can be removed with a non-bleach detergent and water. 

If you have a tough stain that won’t budge, don’t hesitate to call in the experts or you risk having a permanent mark. In-depth knowledge about tackling different stain sources as well as top-quality tools and equipment enables professionals at carpet cleaning in Perth to effectively remove a wide range of stains.
