To Properly Maintain Your Carpet
it comes to maintaining your carpet, one of the most critical areas of focus is
the traffic area. If ground in soil is not removed on a regular basis, the
traffic areas will begin to wear excessively. The dirt is extremely abrasive
against the fibers of the carpet as you walk back and forth on it. The second
area of focus of course is spot removal. You must react to "danger"
spots immediately. Red wine, red beverages, urine, blood, vomit,
etc. can cause a permanent stain if
not treated immediately. Listed below are the steps that you must take to
properly maintain your carpeting.
your carpet often. Once or twice a week at least. Vacuuming removes the abrasive
soil that can cut and slice the fiber causing premature wear. Much of this soil
is not visible to the eye. Vacuum before the carpet looks soiled. Remove any
loose particles such as loose food, leaves, pieces of crayon, bugs, etc. as
these items can cause a spot on the carpet.
As a general rule, carpet cleaning by a professional, certified firm should take place about once per year. For extremely heavy traffic areas, cleaning may be required more often. Proper, professional cleaning will not leave a sticky residue behind and can be done as many times per year as needed. MANY STAIN RESISTANT WARRANTIES REQUIRE PROFESSIONAL CLEANING EVERY 2 YEARS. Professional cleaning removes the damaging soil in traffic areas that vacuuming has not been able to remove.

warranties can vary from 5 to 20 years. ALL
stain resistant warranties require regular cleaning and immediate spot removal.
Removal and Interim Cleaning
spot removal is key to a clean carpet. Great care also must be taken in how spot
cleaning is performed. When a carpet is new, or has sufficient protector on
it, plain tap water will remove many spots. However
for those spots that will not move easily with water, you must use a spot
cleaner. Select a spot cleaner that is recommended by the carpet manufacturer or
your trained certified professional cleaner. Most spot removers that are
purchased over the counter leave too much soap residue and can cause yellowing.
Avoid using foam carpet cleaners or any product that is not made specifically
spot cleaner sparingly to white terry cloth and gently massage spot causing it
to transfer into the cloth. Never pour spot cleaner directly on carpet. If the
product that you are using seems to cause the spot to resoil over a few weeks
use. For any spot that you are not able to remove, such as pet urine or feces,
call us immediately.
carpets are treated with stain resist properties and soil resistors. The carpet
manufacturers recommend you re-apply protector after every cleaning. The soil resistor will help the soil slide off of the
carpet easier when vacuuming, spots will be easier to remove, and professional
cleaning will be more effective.
