Daily Carpet Care

Regular vacuuming as frequently as possible will always be the best carpet care step that you can take! When it comes to daily carpet care, preventative measures will go a long way in preserving the stellar appearance of your soft surfaces. First, use mats at all entranceways to reduce the amount of dirt, mud, ice slush, and any other abrasive particles entering the household. Have guests remove footwear before walking on carpet as well. Keep all pet nails and claws trim to reduce snags, brush pets regularly to reduce pet dander, and complete house-training before pets live on carpet.

Dirt & Debris

To prevent wear to your carpet, the key is removing dirt and debris as effectively as possible before they become abrasive particles. We highly recommend investing in the proper vacuum model that matches your carpet type and vacuuming your carpet weekly to remove damaging particles. In fact, the Carpet and Rug Institute recommends that carpet be vacuumed one time per week for every household member. Avoid using vacuums with a beater bar to prevent scratches on delicate carpet fibers and always check your manufacturer’s recommendations before investing in a robot vacuum cleaner.

Spills & Stains

Treat spills with warm water immediately to prevent stains and moisture absorption. First, remove solid material with a spoon and work in from the outside of the spill. Next, blot liquid stains with paper towels or a white towel and use warm water to remove the stain. You can use a gentle, manufacturer-approved cleaner, and we recommend professional cleaning to remove persistent stains. If you anticipate frequent stains in your active home, consider exploring low-profile carpet constructions like level loop pile carpet and multi-level loop pile carpet that offer great stain resistance and are easier to maintain when it comes to spills.
