Carpet Care & Maintenance

Maintaining Your Carpet's Beauty

– The best way to ensure long–lasting beauty, comfort and durability in your carpet is to vacuum it regularly, as it prevents soil from becoming embedded in the carpet’s pile.

– Depending on the type of carpet you have, you’ll want to use a vacuum with a rotating brush, a beater bar or suction only.

– When vacuuming high pile or premium soft carpets look for the following features that will allow you to easily maintain your carpet:- Adjustable Height – Use the highest setting where appropriate

– Efficient Airflow – Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction

– Large Wheels allow the appliance to glide easily across the carpet

Continue applying detergent and blotting until spot is completely removed. Using a spray bottle, rinse with tap water and blot to remove excess moisture. Apply paper towels and weigh them down, allowing the spot to dry.
