Carpet Care and MaintenancePosted: Updated:
To obtain long lasting beauty and performance from your flooring, proper care and maintenance is imperative. Your carpet couldn't be easier to care for so protect your investment before problems occur with tips from Carpet One.
- Vacuuming is key to keeping your carpet looking new. Vacuum heavy-traffic areas frequently and less traveled areas once a week.
- Remove stains promptly. To find out the best way to tackle tough stains consult our Stain Removal Guide on this page.
- Sometimes, though, vacuuming and stain removal will not always take care of your carpet cleaning needs. A deep carpet cleaning is recommended every 12-18 months. Many different types of cleaners are commercially available including dry cleaners, spray-on foam, and shampoo. However, the best method is to hire a professional. Choose a carpet cleaner with the same care you would for any major investment. Don't be afraid to ask for references and an estimate, and don't hesitate to call your nearest Carpet One for a recommendation.
- Finally, annually redistribute the load on your carpet caused by furniture. This will give heavy-traffic areas a rest as well as assure a consistent aging of your carpet.
Remember, regular care and maintenance is essential to maintaining your warranty coverage. Follow these simple steps and your carpet will look as good as the day it was installed!
