Carpet Maintenance Tips

  1. Use mats at all entrances to absorb soil and moisture. Clean mats regularly so they don't become sources of soil themselves.
  2. Use a quality pad under your carpet, particularly on stairs. A good pad gives better resilience underfoot and extends the life of your carpet. Some carpets carry warranties with specification requirement. Before purchasing your carpet pad, review your warranty.
  3. Move heavy furniture occasionally to avoid excessive pile crushing. Put coasters intended for use with carpet under the legs of tables,chairs, and other furniture to help distribute the weight and prevent mashing the pile. Do not use chairs or appliances with rollers or casters on carpet without a chair pad designed for carpet. Continued use without a chair pad can cause damage to the carpet.
  4. When moving heavy wheeled furniture (pianos, buffets, etc.), prevent damage by placing heavy cardboard or plywood between the wheels and the carpet.
  5. Use of area rugs with our carpet can enhance the total look of a room, but be sure to remove and clean them regularly. Also clean and restore the pile of the carpet underneath. After cleaning your carpet, remember to allow the carpet and the area rugs to dry completely before replacing the rugs.
  6. Protect your carpet from prolonged periods of direct sunlight with blinds, shades, or awnings.

Please Note: Carpets with stain resistant treatments improve your ability to clean, not prevent, stains. No carpet is stain proof. Carpets with soil resistant treatments reduce the rate of soiling and make it easier to clean, but all carpets require regular care and maintenance.

 

Tony is an amazing workman. He returned my carpet to off-white and new looking. The once soilded spots have not returned and it's been six months.
