Carpet Care Tips (To make your carpet last longer)

01. Rearrange Your Furniture.

It is good to move your furniture from time to time to change the traffic pattern in your house. Your carpet is worn down faster where people walk.

02. Vacuum Regularly.

Dirt helps wear down the fibres in your carpet. Vacuum regularly and place a welcome mat at your home’s entrances. Also consider a “no shoes” policy. High traffic areas can often do with vacuuming once a day while low traffic areas can be vacuumed a couple of times a week.

03. Consider Area Rugs.

Depending on how your house is laid out you may have some areas that will have high traffic regardless of how your furniture is arranged. Consider an area rugs in these locations

04. Shampoo Rugs.

Shampoo rugs at least once a year. Consult your manufacturers specifications for what type of cleaning equipment and/or detergents are appropriate for your type of carpet.

05. Spill Awareness.

Treat spills quickly for the best chance of avoiding a stain. If you have kids, make sure they know that they need to tell you about spills immediately so they do not have time to set.DO NOT rub a stain it will disturb the pile and make the stain penetrate deeper into your carpet, blotting with white tissue is preferable. DO NOT use hot water, it will fix the stain in place, use luke warm water.

06. Snip Loose Threads

To remove a loose thread that sticks up above the fibre use scissors to snip it instead of pulling on it which can pull out more than just the thread.

07. Designate Eating Areas.

Many spills can introduce oils into your carpet which attract dirt and help lead to a dingy looking carpet. The less you eat in carpeted areas the better your chances are of avoiding these types of spills.
