How to Keep Your Carpet Looking Great!

Here is a great tip on how to keep your carpet looking great. Who knew it was so simple!!

Proper care and cleaning can make a big difference in retaining your carpet’s beauty over many years of regular use.

The most important thing you can do for your carpet is to vacuum it regularly.   




Removing dirt particles will reduce fiber abrasion that will dull carpet fibers. Be sure to adjust your vacuum to the height of your carpet to provide proper pile agitation and suction to remove soil.

Most dirt, and even dust, takes the form of hard particles. When left in the carpet these gritty, sharp particles abrade the pile of the carpet.


Regular vacuuming not only prolongs the life of the carpet and promotes a healthy environment, but will enhance its appearance as well. Most soiling in carpet is of the dry, particle type, which can be removed with a vacuum cleaner.

A few tips:

1) Use a vacuum with a rotating brush or beater bar.

2) Change the bags often and check the beater bars for burs and gouges so as not to damage the surface of the carpet.

3) Some thick loop pile carpets will fuzz if a rotating brush vacuum is used. In this case a suction vacuum only is recommended.
