Daily Carpet Care
Carpet flooring, despite being vulnerable to spills, is actually quite easy to care for and maintain. By setting up a care & maintenance routine for your carpet, you can help to stave off the wear and tear that comes with time and ensure that your flooring maintains its beauty.
Carpet care revolves around vacuuming. By investing in a quality vacuum and putting it to use on a regular basis, you are actively helping to remove dirt and other debris that can harm your carpet's fibers and create a grungy and worn look. How often you need to vacuum will depend on the amount of foot traffic within the room in question, but plan on doing so every couple of days.
Of course, it's also good to encourage guests to remove their shoes before walking on your carpet. Entry mats are also beneficial.
Dealing With Carpet Spills & Stains
Being prepared and reacting quickly when carpet messes occur is essential in minimizing damage. When and if a mess occurs, address it immediately to avoid lingering damage to your flooring. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that the fibers of your carpet will get damaged. The first step is always to absorb the mess up with a clean towel. From there, you can blot out the mess with cold water. For difficult-to-handle messes, consult your manufacturer.
