First, establish a routine everyone can follow!

REMOVE OUTDOOR SHOES

Encourage the removal of shoes before walking across carpets to avoid tracking dirt into the house. Set up shoe racks or mats by entryways.

CARPET PAD QUALITY

When installing new carpet, use a good quality carpet pad for additional cushion that adds support & damage resistance.

WEEKLY VACUUMING

Daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer-approved appliance is sometimes all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANING

A couple of times a year, you’ll want to give your carpets a more thorough cleaning, especially in high-traffic areas. Contact a professional cleaning service or give your carpets a shampoo at home if recommended by your carpet manufacturer’s guidelines. Make sure you’re always following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer when it comes to carpet cleaning to adhere to your warranty.

CARPET STAIN REMOVAL

For common household stains like spilled juice or pet accidents, your first reaction may be to jump in and clean up the mess. But before you tackle any spills, stains, or soils on your new carpet, you need to determine if it’s an oil-based or water-based stain. Once you know which type it is, consult our common stain removal guide below.
