Household Hazards: Carpet Beetles

You have probably never heard of carpet beetles but have seen the damage that they can do to your carpets and upholstery.  Carpet Beetles lay their eggs in rugs, furs or any fabric containing wool or fur and prefer indoor conditions. Both adults and larvae like to feed in areas that are undisturbed and dark, which can make them hard to detect until you have a wide infestation and a large amount of damage to your home.  Although they prefer to eat natural fibers they have been known to eat synthetic if covered with perspiration, oil or food. Here are some helpful hints to stave off these little offenders:

  • Vacuum carpets, rugs, upholstery and pillows on a regular basis to remove eggs and larvae create an infestation.
  • Make sure to clean up food spills right away since they will gather dust and lint which can become a breeding ground for carpet beetles.
  • Make sure to inspect and clean any second-hand fabric based product you bring home. Rugs, clothing, quilts and other items can transport carpet beetles into your home
  • Get your carpets, rugs and upholstery professional cleaned on a regular basis to get rid of any deep down dirt that you wouldn’t be able to get with routine vacuuming.

Some Handy Tips to Keep Your Carpet Clean

  • Make sure to vacuum your carpet regularly; this will help dirt from building up in the fibers and damaging the carpet itself.
  • If you spill anything on your carpet make sure to clean it up right away.  They longer a liquid sits on your carpet the deeper it will go into the fibers making it harder to get back out.  Most stains you can lift with water but others, like red wine stains, can be more difficult.
  • Use rugs or carpet runners in high traffic areas.  Constant traffic can cause the carpet to flatten, sink, and eventually wear out making it look dull and worn with no way to bring it back to its original coloring and volume.
  • Make sure to get your carpet deep cleaned on a regular basis.  Not only will this leave your carpet looking bright and beautiful but will also remove deeply embedded dirt.
  • Place a shoe mat at the front door; this will help remove some of the dirt that will be tracked in to your home and carpet.

How To Keep You Carpet Looking Great In Between Cleanings

The Basics Of Keeping Your Carpet Clean

  1. Vacuum your carpet every week and twice a week in high traffic areas. Regular vacuuming will keep dirt particles out of the carpet,keeping damage they cause to a minimum.
  2. Going over a carpet once with a vacuum is not enough to get all the dirt out.  To properly vacuum you will need to do multiple sweeps over the same area.
  3. If you have rooms with large areas of carpet vacuum sections at a time.  This will insure that you don’t miss any areas.
  4. Vacuum in crisscross motions in high traffic areas and in front of couches. This will help loosen any dirt build up.
  5. Apply soil retardants when you get a new carpet or after carpet shampooings.  This will help keep dirt from resettling into the fibers of the carpet.
