Mom’s three favorite words ring true after all. By placing a mat at the doors that lead to and from backyards and garages - and enforcing their use -mud, dirt and other yuckiness can stay outside and not get tracked across the carpet.
Regardless of your militaristic skills when it comes to keeping dirty feet off the carpet, dust, food and other everyday grime is going to make its way onto your precious pile. That’s where a good vacuum comes in. Buy one and use it often. You can choose between the old fashioned upright, or one of those fancy robotic models that requires little more than the push of a button and the occasional emptying of the filter. Frequent vacuuming sucks up the dust and loose dirt, refreshing your rugs and extending the life of your investment.
If you choose a vacuum that uses bags, make sure you change the bag frequently to allow maximum cleaning efficiency - and to avoid all that dust blowing back out onto your carpets! Newer bagless models may save time and make the effort even easier!
Heavy furniture, potted plants and other home décor can crush carpet pile and leave compressions that you may not notice until you redecorate or move. It’s a good idea to shake things up every once in a while - rearrange the furniture and your carpet will thank you.
Those large picture windows invite the sunlight in, casting a beautiful glow across your home. But in the same way the sun damages our skin, its ultraviolet rays can also damage the color of your carpet over time. To avoid sun lightening to your carpets, shut the curtain or blinds when the sun is most intense or use UV glass or film in your windows.
Looped carpets tend to snag over time - especially at the seams. It’s best not to vacuum over lose yarn or pull at the snags. Instead, treat every loose thread like you would on an expensive suit. Grab a scissors and carefully snip the snag flush with the plush.
The beauty, performance and value of carpet make it the right choice for schools, healthcare facilities, offices and shopping spaces. Carpeted floors cushion the impact of slips and falls, dampen noise and make it easier to learn and concentrate. Today's carpets are engineered to resist staining and fading and withstand even heavy foot traffic.
