Carpet Care & Maintenance

Carpet care and maintenance is essential! It will keep your flooring looking and feeling its best for many years to come. Follow our expert tips!

Keeping Your Carpet Looking New


Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to carpet cleaning and care, there are some quick and easy tasks that will do wonders to protect the look and longevity of your carpeting.


Preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your carpeting looking as good as new for years to come. Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your floor. Also invest in some doormats to trap dirt and particles instead of tracking them throughout your home.

Regular Cleaning

You should regularly vacuum your carpet to remove all of the dirt, dust, and allergens from its fibers. Throughout the year, also we suggest either an occasional professional cleaning or a DIY carpet shampoo at home (but always check with the manufacturer's recommendations).

Some carpets have stain resistant treatments that improve your ability to clean stains, but not prevent them. Similarly, carpet with soil resistant treatments reduce the rate of soiling, but all rugs require regular care and maintenance.

Dealing with Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are or how much you stick to your care and maintenance routine, your carpet will still likely experience the occasional spill or mess, especially if you have kids or pets. Fortunately, many of our carpets  feature stain-resistant fibers, making cleaning common household stains a breeze!

Some water-based stains can be rinsed and wiped away, but oil-based stains might need a more comprehensive stain removal plan. It’s always best to consult your rug's manufacturer's stain removal guide to see how best to tackle each particular mess.
