Essential Carpet Preventative Maintenance

The best way to keep your carpets clean is to keep them from getting dirty in the first place. Here are some essential preventative measures you can take:

  • Doormats: Place doormats outside every entrance to trap dirt and debris before they get tracked into your home.
  • Carpet Protectors: Use carpet protectors under furniture legs to prevent indentations and damage to your carpet fibers.
  • Regular Vacuuming: Vacuum your carpets regularly, especially in high-traffic areas, to remove dirt and germs trapped below the surface. Consider daily vacuuming for areas with heavy foot traffic.

Carpet Stain Removal Tips

Spills can turn into permanent stains quickly, so it's essential to act fast! Here are some tips for removing carpet stains:

  • Blot, Don't Scrub: Use a clean, absorbent cloth to blot up the spill. Avoid rubbing, which can spread the stain further.
  • Avoid Bleach: Bleaches can damage and discolor your carpet fibers. Always test any cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area before applying it to the stain.
  • Identify Your Carpet Fibers: Knowing your carpet's fiber type (e.g., nylon, wool) can help you choose the right cleaning solution.

Consult your carpet's warranty information for specific cleaning recommendations.

Professional Deep Cleaning

No matter how clean you are, dirt and grime will still find their way deep into your carpet fibers. Regular professional deep cleaning helps maintain your carpet's beauty, remove allergens, and extend its lifespan. We recommend scheduling a professional deep cleaning every 12 to 18 months.
