Understanding the Steps of Basic Carpet Care

Welcome mat

After your new affordable carpet has been successfully installed into your home or business, it’s important that you take the proper precautions necessary to keep it looking its best. From dents to stains and even fading, there are plenty of ways that your carpet can become vulnerable to permanent damage. Here is a guide to understanding the steps of basic carpet care:

Instruct Guests to Wipe Their Feet When Entering the Home
One of the easiest ways to prevent deep dirt stains from penetrating the fibers of your new carpet is to place doormats at every entrance. Instruct guests and loved ones to wipe dirt off of their shoes before entering the home, or kindly request that they remove their shoes entirely.

Invest in a Carpet-Friendly Vacuum Cleaner
How frequently you should vacuum your carpets depends on how much traffic each room receives each day. Rooms that are frequented more often should be vacuumed at least twice per week using a vacuum cleaner that is approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute.

Hire a Professional to Deep Clean Once per Year
In order to keep your carpet looking like new years after installation, be sure to employ the professional help of an experienced carpet cleaning service at least once per year. Professionals have the skills and the tools necessary to get down deep into the fibers and remove dirt that could not only stain your carpet but also cause problems for your indoor environment.

Turn Your Attention to Various HVAC System Components
A simple way to keep debris and particles from trickling onto your carpet from other areas in the home is to regularly clean your HVAC air filters. Removing dust and dirt from these fixtures will help to guarantee that it doesn’t wind up embedded in the carpet.
