Carpet Care & Maintenance
A great first step is to establish a preventative maintenance routine. For example, remove outdoor shoes before walking across your carpet so you don’t track dirt inside the house and use a good quality carpet pad for additional support. Create a care and maintenance routine that also works with your current cleaning schedule. For most of our products, daily to weekly vacuuming with a manufacturer’s approved appliance is really all you need to keep your carpets looking and feeling great!

Professional Carpet Cleaning
We also suggest periodic professional cleanings of your carpet throughout the year or else for you to shampoo it yourself at home if recommended by your carpet manufacturer's guidelines. Regardless of what kind of care and maintenance routine you establish for yourself, make sure you’re following the recommendations of your carpet manufacturer, to ensure maximum effectiveness and a beautiful end result.
Incorporate a deeper clean for your carpet into your spring-cleaning to remove any wintery residue, or at the first signs of autumn to prepare your home for each new season.
Carpet Stain Removal
No matter how hard you try to be careful, messes can occur on your carpet at any given time. Many of our carpets are sold with stain-resistant technology built into the fibers.
When it comes to common household stains like spilled milk, pet accidents, or makeup stains, your first inclination may be to just jump right in and clean up the mess. But before you tackle cleaning any spills, stains, or soils on your new carpet, first establish whether it’s an oil-based stain or water-based stain, then consult our common stain removal guides. Since some messes will just wipe away with a cleaning cloth while others will require comprehensive stain removal directions, it’s best to consult with our common stain removal guide.
