Carpet Care Tips
Proper Carpet Care from the CRI (Carpet & Rug Institute)
Scheduling regular deep carpet cleaning and practicing a few simple carpet care tips will help your carpet last longer and look great. By limiting dirt exposure, cleaning stains and spills, using the right products and regularly cleaning embedded dirt and grime, you can stop your carpets from looking dingy over time. This not only adds to a clean and beautiful look, but also adds value to your home.
By vacuuming regularly, you can remove dirt and dust before it becomes embedded in the carpet. While foot traffic and heavy use will inevitably push some dirt into the fibers, regular surface cleaning can reduce this. Spots and spills, whether from pets, food, drinks, kids, or something else, are bound to happen. Cleaning these up quickly with a safe cleaner that won’t damage the carpet will keep the appearance of stains minimal. Using rugs at the door will stop excess dirt, snow, salt, dust, grass and other particles from tracking through. Finally, having your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months will stop dirt and dust from embedding into fibers.
