Important Steps for Carpet Care


1. Soil Prevention

 Soiling is a build up of soil particles and oily materials that cling to fibers and dull their beauty. Soiling is the primary reason carpet must be cleaned. Thus , soil prevention is a major factor in carpet care and maintenance.
Walk-off and soil trap mats help reduce soiling. Clean them often. Rotate them frequently to maintain a clean carpet in high traffic areas.

2. Vacuuming 

 Thorough and frequent vacuuming will help maintain original carpet appearance and prolong carpet life. Analyze the traffic flow in your home or facility. Isolate high traffic areas.
Vacuum these areas daily. Medium and low traffic areas require less vacuuming.

3. Spot Removal

Monitor your carpet for spots  often. When possible, spot removal should occur at the time the spot is found.

4. Traffic lane maintenance 

High traffic areas require thorough cleaning on a regular basis due to traffic flow and soiling conditions.

5. Overall Cleaning

Perform thorough overall cleaning on a periodic basis, as needed. (for example; quarterly, biannually, annually).

One thing we been noticing are burn marks on carpets , this we see mostly on low pile carpets that use upright vacuums.

Left running still with the brush turning for a period of time will most likely burn the carpet fibers.



Along with regular vacuuming of your carpets don't forget the edges, you can use the tool wand along with the brush attachment to help loosen the dirt. This will help prevent the edges of your carpets from discoloring, especially noticeable on white carpets.
