3 Simple Steps to Keeping your Carpet Clean

  1. Vacuum regularly with a well-functioning vacuum. Be sure to empty and clean your vacuum often.
  2. Clean spots and spills quickly with products that do not damage the carpet or cause it to attract more dirt.
  3. Professionally deep clean your carpets at least every 6 to 12 months to remove built-up dirt and dust. For the best results and benefits, try a more frequent 6-month cleaning routine.

Prevent Carpet From Getting Dirty in the First Place

Preventing dirt and grime from getting on your carpet in the first place is a great way to keep it clean. The following helpful hints can stop dirt before it ever hits your carpet.

  • Use mats. Outdoor and indoor mats or runners will catch dirt to greatly reduce the amount of dirt that enters your home.
  • Take off your shoes. You can save wear and tear on the carpet by asking everyone to take their shoes off before walking on your carpet.
  • Change your air filters. Change air filters in your heating and air-conditioning systems as recommended by the manufacturer’s directions. The more dust and particles removed by the filter, the fewer that fall onto the carpet & furniture.
