Carpet Care & Maintenance
Daily care and maintenance
Establish a preventative care routine for your new carpet. Remove shoes before walking across your carpet so you don't track dirt inside the house. Vacuum daily or weekly with a manufacturer-approved appliance. Click here to read Shaw's guide to vacuuming.
Occasionally, you might want to give your carpet a deep clean. If doing so, be sure to consult your manufacturer's guidelines. Use only manufacturer-approved products.
Dealing with spills
Let's face it...life is messy. It doesn't matter how careful you are! Fortunately, many of our carpets are made with stain-resistant technology.
When it comes to common household stains like spilled milk, pet accidents, or makeup stains, you’ll probably want to jump right in and clean up the mess. But you should first establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or a water-based stain. Then, consult our common stain removal guide.
