Every year, 4 billion pounds of carpet are discarded in the United States. I know that the knee jerk reaction for many of us when we move into a new place is to rip out the carpet and put in a more sustainable floor like wood or cork. While that might be a great long term goal, a better choice is to keep that carpet looking good as long as possible before discarding it. A carpet rake is just the tool to help you do that!
Carpet rakes help you keep the pile looking great and to loosen debris that gets caught deep in the fibers. This Fresh Fossil has 3 ways to use the carpet rake:
- You can rake your carpet before vacuuming, to loosen debris and fibers for better vacuuming results.
- You can rake your carpet after vacuuming, to pull up matted carpet and give your carpet that "like new" look and feel.
- Or you can rake your carpet before a deep cleaning to restore it to it's previous glory.
