What should I do to properly take care of my carpet?
There are some steps you need to do.
Regular vacuuming of carpet.
This is the most important thing you can do for your carpet. Vacuuming removes the dry particle soil from your carpet that is tracked in by you, your children and your pets. If dry soil is left in your carpet the grit constantly wears your carpet fibers like sandpaper. This eventually removes your stain resistant coating on the fibers, then permanently wears the fibers itself, dulling the carpets color. This results in damage beyond repair, which ruins the beauty of your carpet.
Prompt cleanup of spills.
The quicker you clean up spills on your carpet the easier they are to remove. Use clean white absorbent materials. Always blot up spills, do not aggressively rub or brush carpet.
Periodic professional cleaning.
Professional carpet cleaning is required to remove the deep down soil in your carpet that vacuuming does not reach. It also removes the oily soil from your carpet. Also, hot water extraction will refresh the texture of your carpet by resetting the twist of the carpet fibers. Periodic cleaning by a professional will also keep your carpet warranty valid.
What should I do to restore crushed pile?
To restore crushed pile, raise it by scraping against the direction of the nap with a ruler or credit card; then hold a steam iron, set on medium, about three inches above the pile to dampen and swell the fibers. Let the area dry before replacing the furniture.
How can I prevent stains?
To prevent stains, clean up spills as soon as they happen. Keep a container of general-purpose foam or powdered carpet cleaner on hand for the purpose.
How to clean up stains?
To clean up most spills, first remove as much of the spilled material as possible without rubbing any into the pile. Fluids can be absorbed by placing a paper towel over them; thicker substances can be scooped up with a pair of spatulas or putty knives. Next, apply the cleaner according to the manufacturer's instructions. This involves spraying or sprinkling cleaner over the spill, waiting for it to absorb the remaining substance and then vacuuming the residue. If this is not effective, contact Carpet hero, consult the carpet cleaning customer service for more information.
