Purchasing new carpet for your home is one of the larger investments you will make in your home’s upkeep. These decisions are generally based on decor as well as functionality. Once you’ve decided on which product best suits your needs, you need to make sure you take the proper care to maintain it throughout its expected lifespan.

1. Vacuum.

The most important step you can take for the longevity of your carpet is vacuuming. Sand, soil and outdoor pollutants are carried into your home and collect on the fibers of the carpet.

With regular traffic, these react similar to sandpaper on the bottom of your shoes and can damage the fibers. The fibers are left looking dull and worn.

A large portion of the soiling on carpet is dry insoluble and is best removed by vacuuming. A good guide to vacuum frequency is to vacuum once a week for every person and pet in the home. A minimum of three times a week for two or less occupants may be recommended.

2. Remove stains quicky.

Quick removal of spills and stains is also very important. The longer a spill is allowed to sit on a carpet, the harder it is to remove. Water and blotting the stain with a clean white towel should always be your first defense when trying to remove stains.

If water alone isn’t working, you can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to break the surface tension of the water. Beyond that, you should refer to a professional. Using a harsher detergent (high pH) can set a stain, making it impossible to remove.

3. Get regular cleanings.

Regular cleanings by a certified professional cleaner is recommended by the manufacturer in order to maintain your carpet’s warranty. The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is a certifying body that sets the standards of cleaning recommended by most major manufacturers.

They provide extensive training and certifications for technicians in the cleaning industry. Using a certified professional insures that your carpets will receive the proper care to extend the life of your investment. Most manufacturers recommend cleaning at least every 12 to 18 months.

Following these simple steps will greatly increase the life of your carpet. New flooring for your home is a significant investment. Keeping up with the proper care and maintenance of your carpet will insure that you receive the maximum life and appearance you expect and will also keep your home healthy and beautiful.
