Traffic area need focused attention when maintaining your carpet. If ground soil is not removed on a regular basis, the traffic areas will begin to wear excessively. Dirt is abrasive against the fibers of the carpet.
Spot removal is another important focus area. “Danger” spots such as red wine, any red beverage, urine, and blood need immediate attention. These can cause permanent stain if left untreated or incorrectly treated. Listed below are some steps that you must take to properly maintain you carpet.
Copies of specific warranties on your carpet purchase may be available from your carpet retailer. Stain resist warranties can vary from 5 to 20 years. All Stain Resist Warranties Require Regular Cleaning And Immediate Spot Removal. To be eligible for Texture Retention Warranty service professional cleaning is required. Check your warranty for specifics on time requirements.
Vacuum your carpet often, once or twice a week. Vacuuming removes the sharp soil that can cut and slice the fiber causing premature wear. Much of this soil is not visible to the eye. Vacuum before the carpet looks soiled.
Professional cleaning is recommended at least every 12 months. Proper professional cleaning will not leave a sticky residue behind and can be done as many times per year as needed. Professional cleaning removes damaging soil from the traffic area that vacuuming has not been able to remove. WARNING: Uninformed Carpet Cleaners may void the warranty by using non-approved cleaning products. Be selective when choosing a Carpet Cleaning Company.
Spot Removal and Interim Cleaning
Immediate spot removal is vital to a clean carpet. When a carpet is new, or has sufficient protector on it, plain tap water will remove many spots. For those spots that will not easily remove with water, you must use a spot cleaner that is recommended by the carpet manufacturer or your I.I.C.R.C. professional cleaner. Apply spot cleaner sparingly to a white terry cloth and gently massage spot causing it to transfer onto the cloth. Never pour spot cleaner directly on the carpet. If the product that you are using seems to cause the spot to re-soil, discontinue use. For spots that you are not able to remove, and for pet urine or feces contamination, call your Professional Cleaner immediately.
Residential carpets are treated with stain resist properties and soil resistors known as Dupont Teflon or 3M Scotchguard. After a period of 2 to 3 years, some of the soil-resistor wears off. At this point you should consider having a professional carpet cleaner reapply the treatment after the carpet is cleaned. Carpet protector helps soil slide off the carpet easily when vacuuming, spots will be easier to remove, and professional cleaning will be more effective.
