Carpet care has never been made easier with our free, downloadable care & maintenance guide!
Carpet is well-known as a flooring choice that’s warm, comforting, and quiet. With the vast number of carpet styles and types of carpet available today, it’s no secret that carpet continues to be a top choice.
Carpet Care Made Easy Maintaining the look of your carpet with today’s floor manufacturing technologies has never been easier!
- Vacuum carpeted areas weekly to avoid build-up dirt and debris.
- Heavy traffic areas such as hallways, stairs, and exterior entryways, should be vacuumed at least twice a week.
- Do not apply stain-repellent treatments that contain silicone as they are unnecessary and tend to accelerate the soiling of carpets
For best results, use a Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) approved vacuum cleaner with an adjustable height beater bar.
Even with a regular vacuuming schedule, a professional carpet cleaning must be performed every 12-18 months. Check the Carpet & Rug Institute website for professionals in your areas
Manufacturers require this in order to maintain your carpet manufacturer warranty. If there is heavier usage, you may have to clean your carpet professionally cleaned at closer intervals. Hot water extraction is required to maintain most warranties. Some styles, however, must be cleaned in other ways.
Before hiring a company, check your manufacturer’s warranty guidelines regarding the cleaning method for your carpet, and ask about their cleaning methods prior to hiring.
Use caution with natural fibers such as wool, cotton, silk, and sisal as they may require specialized care.
Lastly, you must retain your professional cleaning receipts for proof of maintenance service. You’ll need this information should a warranty claim arise.
