Carpet Care & Maintenance

Practice Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance will keep your carpeting looking and feeling great for years to come!

 

Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your new carpeting. You may also consider getting doormats to trap dirt before it can be tracked across your new floor.

 

Regularly vacuum your carpet to remove any dirt, dust, and allergens from its fibers. We also recommend the occasional professional carpet cleaning or shampooing.

Carpeting Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are, accidents happen, especially with kids and pets at home. Fortunately, many of our carpets are sold with stain-resistant technology, which makes it easy to deal with stains!

Before cleaning up any mess on your carpeting, figure out whether it's an oil- or water-based stain. Then, consult your manufacturer's care guide.

Some stains will wipe away with a simple cloth, while others will require a more comprehensive approach. But when you do clean up a spill, it's important to rinse the spot thoroughly with water and blot dry afterwards.

For more help, consult our stain removal guide to see how best to tackle each particular mess.
