Carpet Care Tips


When carpets look great they also last longer!

And, it’s not as hard as you think! A few little things can go a long, long way.

Entrance mats – 75% of the soils in your carpet are tracked-in soils. Using entrance mats inside and outside of doorways will reduce the amount soils tracked onto your carpet.

Vacuuming – Nothing is more important for maintaining your carpet appearance than vacuuming. Dry soil is very abrasive and can actually damage carpet fibers.

Keep food and drinks out of reach of your carpet – Seems too easy, huh?

Blot, DON’T scrub! – Be gentle. Don’t scrub it, don’t rub it, don’t be too aggressive or you’ll end up with a permanent and obnoxiously visible fuzzy spot.

House slippers – Body oils from your feet can actually leave your carpet dirty. Rather than walking around with bare feet or in socks you may want to use a pair of house slippers.

Spread the wear around – by periodically rearranging the furniture. It’s a great way to break up your use patterns and spread the wear around more evenly. You’ll see a difference in the long run.

Get off to a good start – A great carpet starts with a great fiber. For longevity, cleaning and comfort, nylon can’t be beat. It’s virtually unanimous among carpet cleaners, nylon will outperform olefin and polyester every time. Choose the best nylon carpet your budget will allow.

Professional Cleaning – Have your carpets and upholstery cleaned every 6-12 months and have protectant reapplied every cleaning.
