A good vacuum is your new carpet's best friend! Buy a quality vacuum and use it regularly. Thorough vacuuming removes loose dirt and dust from the fibers. Over time these particles will dull your carpet’s appearance, so frequent vacuuming maintains the beauty of your carpet and extends its life. High traffic areas may need more vacuuming more often.
Be aware that heavy furniture can compress or crush the carpet pile. They will also leave noticeable indentations. Rearranging your furniture periodically will help keep your carpet in top condition. Additionally, carpet that is near windows and patio doors can be subjected to harmful ultraviolet rays. These rays can deteriorate the carpet’s appearance and ability to withstand wear. If possible, be sure to use window treatments that offer some protection against sunlight.
Dealing with Stains and Spills
Deal with spills right away. The longer you wait, the more the stain will soak into the fibers. Immediately blot up as much of the liquid or debris with a dry cloth. Don’t rub or scrub the area with a rag, as this damages the fibers and may create a permanent scar. Use warm water to rinse the stained area completely. Hot water can set the stain and make it difficult to remove. Press clean cloths deeply into the carpet to take up moisture until the stain no longer appears on the cloth.
If a stain remover is needed, blot up excess moisture before applying. Work the remover in gently and use sparingly. Then thoroughly rinse the area with warm water and absorb the excess dampness with a clean cloth. After your carpet has dried, vacuum to restore its texture and appearance.
Unfortunately, time and traffic will take a toll on your carpet. To protect your investment, cleaning by a reputable, professional cleaner is suggested approximately once a year. Consistent upkeep and professional cleaning will keep your carpet beautiful for years to come.
