Keep your carpet looking beautiful.

Placing door mats and area rugs at every entrance to your home is a great way to ensure your carpet stays looking its best. These doorway protectors can help catch soil and other debris in on the bottoms of shoes, protecting your carpet at a low cost. 

Have the tools for the job

Buy a quality vacuum and use it regularly. Vacuuming removes loose dirt and dust from your carpet’s fibers. Over time, these built-up particles can have a visual effect on the appearance of your carpet. Frequent, at least weekly, vacuuming maintains the beauty of your carpeting and extends its life.

Treat spills the right way

As a carpet owner, you'll want to always treat all spills as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more the spill will soak into your carpet’s fibers, increasing the odds that it will become a stain. When a spill occurs, immediately blot up as much of the liquid as possible with a dry cloth. Don’t rub or scrub the area, as this may create a permanent stain.

 

Always use warm water to rinse the stain. Press a clean cloth into the carpet to soak up moisture. Then thoroughly rinse the area with warm water before absorbing the excess dampness with a clean cloth once more. After your carpet has dried, vacuum to restore texture and appearance.
