Preventative Maintenance

Establishing a preventative maintenance routine that works with your lifestyle can make a significant difference to the condition of your carpet. We recommend some simple yet important tips to prevent unnecessary damage to your carpet in the long run. Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house and use a good quality carpet pad for additional support.  Incorporate a carpet care and maintenance routine that also works with your current cleaning schedule. For most of our products, daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer’s approved appliance is really all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

Professional Cleaning

Periodically throughout the year, we suggest either having your carpet professionally cleaned or giving your carpets a shampoo at home (if recommended by your carpet manufacturers guidelines). Regardless of what kind of care and maintenance routine you establish for yourself, it’s really important that you’re following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer, to ensure maximum effectiveness and a pleasing end result.

You can also opt to use spring-cleaning as an optimal time for a deeper clean for your carpet, which will remove any wintery residue, or at the first signs of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.

Stain Removal

Life can be messy and anything can fall onto your carpet. Did you know that many of our carpets are sold with stain resistant technology built into the fibers?

When it comes to common and dreaded household stains like spilled milk, pet accidents, spilled wine or makeup stains, you’ll probably want to jump right in and clean up the mess. Take a second to first establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or water based stain, then consult our common stain removal guides. Since some messes will just wipe away with a cleaning cloth while others will require comprehensive stain removal directions, it’s best to consult with our common stain removal guide.
