Tips: Caring For Your Carpet

1. The most important step in caring for your carpet is VACUUMING. Vacuum thoroughly and frequently especially in high traffic areas. Three passes for light soiled areas and at least seven passes for heavily soiled areas, changing the direction occasionally to help stand the pile upright and reduce matting.

Caring For Your Carpet2. Prompt attention to spills and spots is essential. No carpet is stain proof although many are stain resistant, which allows time to act.

  • Remove as much of the solid spill as possible by scrapping gently with a spoon or dull knife
  • Absorb wet spills as quickly as possible by blotting repeatedly with white paper or cloth towels.
  • Always blot, never rub or scrub abrasively, as a fuzzy area may result. When blotting, work from the outer edge in toward the center of the spot to avoid spreading the spill.
  • Always follow up with water to remove detergent residue that may become sticky and cause rapid re-soiling.
  • Draw out any remaining moisture by placing several layers of white paper towels over the spot and weighing them down with a heavy object that will not transfer color, such as a plastic jug filled with water. NOTE: Wool fibers absorb more water than synthetic fibers without feeling damp.
