The first step is to establish a preventative maintenance routine that’s easy for the entire family to follow.

REMOVE OUTDOOR SHOES

Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house.

CARPET PAD QUALITY

Use a good quality carpet pad for additional support

WEEKLY VACUUMING

Daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer’s approved appliance is sometimes all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANING

A couple of times a year, you’ll want to give your carpets a more thorough cleaning, especially in rooms that are high traffic areas. Contact either a professional cleaning service or give your carpets a shampoo at home if recommended by your carpet manufacturers guidelines. Make sure you’re always following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer when it comes to carpet cleaning for maximum effectiveness and a beautiful end result.

Having a hard time fitting in a deeper clean for your carpet into your cleaning schedule?  Add it in twice a year: to your spring-cleaning which will help remove any wintery residue, or at the first signs of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.

CARPET STAIN REMOVAL

For common household stains like spilled juice, pet accidents or messy art supplies, your first reaction is to jump right in and clean up the mess. But before you tackle cleaning any spills, stains or soils on your new carpet, determine first if it’s an oil-based stain or water based stain. Once you’ve established the type of stain, consult our common stain removal guides.
