Commandments of Carpet Care



Over time your carpets and rugs appearance deteriorates and becomes less attractive. This is due to abrasive soils becoming imbedded in your carpet or rug, which can cause damage to the fibers and reduce the carpet or rug's life. Therefore, establish a regular maintenance schedule that includes professional cleaning.

Commandments of Carpet Care

Vacuum frequently and thoroughly. Most of carpet wear is caused by dirt. Oily soils attract more oily soil and frequent vacuuming will reduce soil buildup. Vacuum high-traffic areas daily, less-traveled areas at least twice a week.

Institute a no-dirt policy. A no-shoes rule is always effective, but can be difficult to implement. However, you should definitely make sure there are doormats at each entrance to your home. clean the mats regularly so they don't become sources of soil themselves.


If furniture rests on the carpet, be sure it gets moved occasionally and use coasters under the furniture's legs.

Address stains quickly: the longer a stain chemically reacts with the carpet the harder it will be to remove it. Common stains usually don't require any liquid cleaners stronger than water. Use as little water as possible and blot them clean instead of rubbing or brushing.

Bring professional cleaners in regularly. The commercial grade equipment we use gets the deeply imbedded dirt out and will make your carpet last longer. It is good practice to have them cleaned every six months if you have children, and every 12 to 18 months if you do not.

  1. Can you recommend a good vacuum cleaner? I prefer canister vacuum cleaners but we have an old one right now that does not have an agitator. Thanks.

  3. The best vacuum cleaner is one that you will use. Having an agitator (beater brush) is good. Also, make sure to empty the bag before it is 50% full. When a bag is 50% full it is only around 20% efficient.

  5. To remove a bubble gum from your leather furniture, all you need to do is to dry the gum with a hair dryer. Once the gum dries out completely, gently remove it with a clean cloth. Don’t forget to follow up with a good leather conditioner.
