No other item in your home absorbs more wear and tear on a daily basis than your carpet, and no other item can impact your home's appearance like your carpet can.
How to extend the life of your carpet:
Have carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year, twice is better.
- Professional cleaners have the equipment and expertise to remove dirt and detergent from your carpet. More importantly, they can remove most of the moisture in your carpet, something that most rental and purchased cleaning equipment does not do
Vacuum carpets at least once a week:
- Up to 80% of dirt in carpets is loose dirt that can be removed with regular vacuuming
- Keep dirt and sand out of the house and off the rugs by using a doormat
- Protect the surface:
- Have your carpet fibers protected by a carpet protectant like Scotchgard®
