Daily Carpet Care
While carpet offers a lot in terms of beauty and comfort, as a flooring option, it requires a fair amount of maintenance to age well. You can learn more about our recommended care guidelines below.
Vacuuming your carpet will help to prolong its lifespan and promote enduring beauty. By vacuuming, you are helping to remove dirt and other debris that lay dormant in the carpet fibers. If left unattended, this debris can lead to premature aging and a dingy appearance. You should plan on vacuuming as much as the foot traffic of the room requires. Most will do it every couple of days.
Ensure shoe removal before walking across your carpet floors as well.
Entry mats at your doors will also help to guarantee that unwanted dirt does not enter your home.
All solid messes on carpet can be vacuumed up. The longer you wait to address these accidents, the more likely it is that lingering damage occurs. Invest in a quality vacuum and put it to use!
Spills & Stains
One of the most obvious downsides to carpet is that it is vulnerable to spills and stains. However, when a spill occurs, the result does not always have to be a stain. You can minimize the damage to your carpet flooring by addressing accidents as they occur.
When a spill takes place, immediately absorb the substance with a cloth. You should consult your manufacturer on approved practices for handling that specific spill from there.
