Choosing carpet for your home or office offers both flexibility and function. There is a wide variety of carpet patterns, colors, and styles to choose from to accommodate your personal style or to match any decor. Not only does carpet provide acoustic insulation, it can provide additional warmth and heat insulation. It is one of the most economical flooring options to have installed. With a wide variety to choose from, even the most affordable options are still manufactured with high-end benefits: stain resistance, static treatments, and other benefits that make them easy to clean and maintain. The following few extra steps to protect and care for your carpet long-term…
Vacuum Often… and Do It Right
Using a high quality vacuum, vacuum your carpet as often as possible. The longer you wait between sweeps allows dirt to be embedded deeper into the fibers. Vacuum a space horizontally, and then switch angles and re-vacuum the same area, and remember, it’s not a race! Using slow and methodical motions allow your vacuum to do its job correctly
An Extra Layer Can Help
In high traffic areas, such as entryways, hallways, or stair landings, consider using a thin area rug to protect the wear and tear of the carpet below.
Take Care of Spills and Stains Quickly
Using a professional grade stain remover, take care of your spills in a prompt manner according to the directions provided on the remover’s bottle. Treat your carpet like your clothes, if you spill red wine on your dress shirt, you act with urgency, and the same should be done with your carpet.
Be Aware of UV Rays
Sunlight can damage your carpet both aesthetically (color fading) and structurally (weakening fibers) Especially in the hot summer months, be aware of where the sun shines in your space and install curtains or blinds to reduce your carpet’s exposure.
