Carpet flooring care and maintenace tips

  • The most important step in caring for your carpet is vacuuming it thoroughly and frequently, particularly in high-traffic areas.
  • Protect your carpet from prolonged periods of direct sunlight with blinds, shades, or awnings.
  • If you use area rugs on your carpet, be sure to clean them regularly, and make sure you clean and restore the pile of the carpet underneath as well. Also, be sure to check area rugs for colorfastness before placing them on carpet because the color in some rugs may bleed through. After cleaning your carpet, allow it to dry completely before replacing rugs.
  • Occasionally move heavy furniture, this won't just renew the feel of your room, it will help avoid excessive pile crushing. Consider using carpet protectors under the legs of tables, chairs, and other furniture to help distribute the weight. Damage can occur if you use chairs or appliances with rollers or casters without a chair pad designed specifically for carpet.
  • Don't track dirt inside, Placing mats outside all entrances will help absorb soil and moisture and trap excessive dirt, sand, grit, oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that might otherwise be tracked into the home.
  • Get on a cleaning schedule, if carpet is cleaned before it becomes too unsightly, the cleaning chore will be easier and more successful. Carpet in a typical household should be cleaned every 12 months, depending on the number of residents and amount of activity. Hot water extraction system provides the best capability for cleaning. This system is commonly referred to as "steam cleaning," although no steam is actually generated. Professional carpet cleaners are a great choice for your floor. Their cleaning equipment has more extraction power than the rental units available to individuals, and the carpet should dry more quickly.
