Proper Carpet Maintenance
The Importance of Cleaning & Maintaining your Carpet
Knowing the best way to clean carpet will help your floors last for years and look like new. Most homeowners know that carpets should be vacuumed once or twice per week, but the type and condition of your vacuum can impact how effective it is. You should be using a vacuum with adjustable and rotating brushes that are regularly cleaned and replaced when worn. Before vacuuming, make sure that the machine is calibrated to the proper height for the carpet pile. Regular vacuuming will not only keep carpets clean but will reduce the amount of shedding over time.
When unexpected spills happen, you should clean carpet stains immediately. Most carpets are available with a stain treatment, which will include manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning without voiding your warranty. Areas that are prone to frequent staining, like playrooms or living rooms, may benefit from updated stain treatments between professional cleanings.
The most overlooked part of carpet maintenance is the professional deep cleaning, which should be performed every 12-18 months depending on the guidelines from your carpet’s manufacturer. Professional deep cleaning methods include shampoo, hot water, dry foam, absorbent pad, and dry extraction. Here at Auburn Carpet One we will help determine how to clean your carpet based on its material and your personal needs.

Without proper carpet maintenance, you may experience increased defects such as shedding, pilling, sprouting, which can impact the long term performance and appearance.
