Long Term Care for Carpet

FOOD

Clean spills up immediately. Follow directions in our Stain Removal Guide for more instructions.

 

FURNITURE

Place glides under heavy furniture to combat crushing. Rotate furniture to give carpet a rest.

 

SUNLIGHT

To prevent fading, avoid long hours of direct sunlight on carpet. Close blinds or shades periodically. Select a lighter colored carpet in sun-drenched rooms to minimize fading.

 

TRAFFIC

Change traffic patterns. Rotate furniture, so people have to alter their path through the room.

 

OUTSIDE DOORS

Place doormats inside and outside of exterior doors to minimize tracking in dirt.

 

RIPPLING

High humidity and heat can cause wall-to-wall carpet to ripple. Call a professional to restretch it with a power stretcher.

 

ANIMALS

Vacuum often and use deodorizer on previous "accident" sites.  Some animals will have repeat "accidents" because they're drawn to the smell.

 

CIGARETTE AND OTHER BURNS

Snip off the damaged fibers.  Blot with a soapless cleaner, like dry cleaning solvent or denatured alcohol.  (Check first to make sure the cleaner doesn't discolor the carpet.)
