Personal Maintenance

It is important to take routine protective measures to maintain your carpet’s freshness in between professional cleanings in order to keep it new-looking for as long as possible. These measures are not very time-consuming, yet they work to protect your carpet in the long run.

This may seem obvious but vacuuming your carpet on a regular basis provides a substantial benefit not only to the rug, but to you as well! When substances such as food particles, dirt, pet hair, and soil particles accumulate in your carpet, they can become hazardous to your health. Those with allergies and asthma are especially prone to being negatively affected by the build-up of allergens and dirt that can compile in your home.

Not only does a regular vacuuming routine benefit your health, but it also benefits the carpet itself. When dry soil particles build up in your rug, they can dull fibers and even cause matting or decay. By vacuuming your carpet at least once per week, both your family and your carpet will thank you.

Another enemy of your carpet that can cause more harm than you think is direct sunlight. Prevent fading by closing the blinds or drawing the curtains during times where your carpet is the most intensely exposed to the sun.

An easy way to maintain the quality of your carpet is to place glides under heavy furniture to prevent the carpet from being crushed. Regular rotation of the furniture is another easy way to give your carpet a needed rest and prevent divots and markings from occurring.
