Carpet Care Basics

With carpeting accounting for 51% of the U.S. flooring market, carpet installation is a significant investment. Maintaining carpet extends its life and protects that investment. A consistent and effective carpet maintenance program can not only maintain your facility image, but dramatically extend the life of the carpet. The moment foot traffic comes through your front door, it’s up to you to protect and defend your floors.

These 5 KEY ELEMENTS will help you do just that.

1.    Soil Prevention – Properly placed mats can easily help contain soils.

2.    Routine Vacuuming – Scheduled frequently for removal of dry soils. Vacuuming is the single most effective means of keeping carpet clean; 90-95% of all dry soil by weight can be removed from carpet.

3.    Routine Spot and Spill Removal – Remove spots and stains quickly with product that won’t damage carpet.
