Everyday Carpet Care and Maintenance

Following these few simple tips, maintaining your carpet's showroom-new look is easy.

  • Vacuum Regularlyfamily playing on carpet
    Over time, dirt and dust left in carpet become hard particles, which are deeply embedded by heavy foot traffic.  Regular vacuuming not only prolongs the life of your carpet, it enhances its appearance.  Vacuum high-traffic areas daily, medium to high-traffic areas twice weekly, and the entire house at least once a week.
  • Floor Mats
    Reduce soil and moisture in traffic areas by using frequently cleaned mats or rugs.
  • Furniture Coasters
    Prevent damaging and discolouring indents caused by heavy items such as furniture with sharp legs or wheels.
  • Spills
    Though most carpets are treated with several stain resistant and soil retardant chemicals, no carpet is completely stain-proof.  So, the most effective way to treat a spill is quickly, before the stain has a chance to set.  Blotting up spills and spots with a clean, white, absorbent cloth or paper towel will make removal easier.  For semi-solid spills, spoon them up with a rounded spoon and break up solid matter before vacuuming thoroughly.  DO NOT rub, scrub or brush stains, it only makes them harder to remove and more prominent.

  • Protection
    To extend the life and beauty of your carpet, close drapes or blinds during hours of direct sunlight.  Also, be careful with all cleaning solutions, they can permanently discolour carpet fibres.
  • Professional Cleaning
    Carpet manufacturers recommend professional steam cleaning every 18-24 months.
