It’s finally summer! This year in New England we have had warm days and cool nights for sleeping. This is almost the perfect conditions for an awesome summer. This is the time of the year that all of us break out the sunblock and lather up to protect ourselves from UV rays and of course sunburn.
“UV Rays” Ultraviolet Rays don’t just affect humans and animals. It also causes “UV Fading”, which is a changing in color with time. When you leave the windows open and the sun shining on that new carpet you just installed, it will cause “UV Fading” according to the Florida Solar Energy Center.
The heat and the sun’s rays will damage your carpet over time. Have you ever moved a chair that has stayed in the same spot for many years and noticed that the carpet is brighter and cleaner in that spot? You can thank UV Rays for the gift of fading. Now you may be thinking that you can stop or slow that process by turning on the air conditioner and keeping the house cool. That won’t reduce the fading effect in the long run.
Here are some quick, simple cost-effective ways to keep your rugs and furniture protected during the intense heat of the summer months.
So what to do if you haven’t done any of these things in your home or office: First you should start with hiring a commercial carpet cleaning service to clean your carpets/rugs. I’m not talking about renting out the Rug Doctor machine at your local hardware store. Hiring a professional cleaner to come in with a truck-mounted cleaning system will make a huge difference in the quality of cleaning you get for your rugs. These systems produce more pressure and heat thus giving your rugs a deeper cleaning.
Once you have a commercial carpet cleaning done to all of the carpets in your building, have them apply the Scotchgard to give your home or business an extra layer of protection. Now you are ready to go through the next steps above to properly guard your carpets into the future.
