One of the reasons why carpeting is so popular is because it is easy to maintain. Keep reading to learn proper carpet care and maintenance. The helpful salespeople at our carpet flooring company can let you know what maintenance is required before you buy. Make sure to also reference the manufacturer’s warranty for specific care requirements.
For carpet maintenance, be sure to:
- Vacuum regularly.
- Blot up spills and spot clean.
- Schedule professional carpet cleaning (hot water extraction).
Invest in Stain-Resistant Carpets
Some carpets are chemically treated to resist stains. However, stain resistance is not the same thing as being invincible. When you spill on the carpet, you will notice the liquid pooling on the surface of the carpet. Quickly blot the spill to prevent staining. If the spill isn’t cleaned right away, it will eventually seep beneath the surface to cause staining.
Stain-resistant carpets are more forgiving of spills and are often selected by our customers with small children. We are a family-owned and operated carpeting installation company that understands the necessity of kid-proof flooring.
Know What Causes Stains
Did you know that most stains are caused by dirt? Even after you clean up a spill on your carpet, the sticky sugar left behind attracts dirt. Dirt can also adhere to the sticky residue left behind when you try to clean with a detergent solution but don’t rinse enough afterwards. For this reason, make sure you always rinse thoroughly with water and blot dry after removing any spill.
